The lights are on
Happen to nab an early copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3? You might want to think about selling it.
A recently ended eBay listing for an alleged early copy netted the seller $1,725, just four days before the game is released in stores.
Those with early copies thinking about signing onto Xbox Live may want to reconsider, however. Xbox Live's Director of Policy Stephen Toulouse noted on Twitter that playing early copies of Modern Warfare 3 online may get you banned temporarily from Activision.
Christ, if you want the game that bad, there are easier ways of obtaining it. Granted, you can't play it online or with the same XBL profile that you go online with (just to be safe), but still.. idiots.
LOL, well, that's COD for you. When easily 25 million people are looking forward to the game, a good 100 of them probably can afford paying so much for it.
I think that this is insane, i mean REALLY insane, that is WAY TOO MUCH to pay for a rehashed game that comes out in a few days.
To say this is stupid is an understatement.
