PS3 CoD:Black Ops Buyers Want their Money Back
Posted on Wednesday, November 24 @ 15:49:38 Eastern by Blake_MorseA petition calling for the full refund of PS3 copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops is making the rounds on the interwebs today, because some folks just don't understand what "caveat emptor" mean.
"Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 was released on Xbox 360 & Playstation 3 console last year and looked identical to one another. There weren't that many differences and gamers got what they paid for. There should be no reason why BO should have been any different. They advertised a game that fans have come to love and in the end, for their latest release, the Playstation 3 got the short end of the stick. They sold us this degenerate version of BO at the same price as Xbox 360 version."
"With that being said, is it fair to charge Playstation 3 owners the same price for an inferior product, when both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 had the same amount of development time? Is it fair to charge Playstation 3 owners the same price for an inferior product, when the previous version (Modern Warfare 2) was equal on both systems but the updated version (BO) is not? Is it fair to charge Playstation 3 owners the same price for an inferior product, when the previous version (Modern Warfare 2 on PS3) looked visually better than BO looks now on PS3?"
It seems like somebody's more than a little butt hurt here. True, some of his complaints may be valid and the 360 could be the superior version here, but the fact remains that as a consumer you are responsible for being well informed about the purchases you make. I'm not saying that's an excuse for Treyarch to make a shitty product, but if you choose to pay money for it, that's your choice. Maybe that's cold hearted of me, but life is harsh and you gotta be tough to get through it.
And after following this link on the petition page, I'm half-convinced that this is nothing more than a gimmick to drive up trade-ins at GameStop. Because nothing is more suspicious than a gamer recommending GameStop's trade-in program.
At any rate, the petition has about 1,450 signatures at the moment and that number is just going to increase as PS3 fanboys come forward to express their 360 penis envy.
