Yet apparently Activision and dear ol' Bobby Kotick ARE worried; at least worried enough to try and find means to deny second-hand users the same content. If that isn't proof that not all is well in rich, white guy paradise in regards to some of us going the second-hand route (if at all), then I don't know what is.
To those that do plan on buying and playing this, I do hope you enjoy it.
I finally bought a cheap, second-hand version of "MW2" and while I've enjoyed it more than "Halo: Reach", it's not the be-all, end-all that so many have made it out to be IMO. I'll be trading it in as soon as I'm done with the single player campaign, getting a newer game which I can sell after I'm done with it, at new-game prices, and thus screw Bobby Kotick and Activision even more. (Yes, it feels GOOD!
) Btw, which "genius" at Infinity Ward came up with the idea of throwing the graphical equivalent of a jar of jam at the screen when you get shot, thus completely stopping the frenetic flow of the game (which is one of the CoD franchise's selling points)?
