Retailers do battle over Modern Warfare 2
Big retail chains including US giant GameStop have been caught selling Modern Warfare 2 early, the store defending their decision by stating that it is a response to other stores putting the game up for sale early.
"This past weekend, GameStop made the decision to break street date and sell reserved copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in select markets where other retailers had broken street date. Our decision followed many conversations with Activision and was an effort to protect our customer base," reads word from the firm.
Meanwhile, UK stores are also using the game to thrash each other, all the major supermarkets selling the title for well below the RRP of 55 GBP.
Sainsburys offer the title for 26 GBP, Tesco 25 GBP (with another chart game) and Asda for 32 GBP.
