Call of Duty Flow Diagram

Call of Duty on the PC

Ok, so it's a Sunday morning and I was getting extremely bored. I've been thinking about picking up MW3 on the PC and decided to have a look to see how much it was on Steam since you need to play it through that. I was shocked to see that it costs £40. I jumped onto Amazon and saw that it was going for half of that price.

I really couldn't really believe that to get an actual disc, it would cost less than getting a digitial download. How can Steam charge this amount when you're not getting the physical disc. Sure, there's servers that need to be paid for, but there's no way that it's costing per customer more than the cost to make a disc, manual, boxing and then shipping it to the retailers.

Anyway, this really wound me up when I noticed this, so decided to throw together one of those small flow charts you see all over the internet. I'm not used to doing this kind of thing in Photoshop, but I had a bash anyway. it's not the best, but hopefully it gets my point across fairly well.

The moral of the story is to ALWAYS shop around, no matter what it is you're buying. Why pay more than what you have to, especially when people are strapped for cash.

I think that's a very simple yet effective flow diagram there. Love the "pown noobs" part at the end, thought that was hilarious. What saddens me more though is that the first Black ops costs £40 still after around 2 years of being out, but MW3 at Gamestation and GAME is going for £20 (on disc). It's a weird weird world.

Voted up, useful, funny and interesting ^^

Cheers John! It's crazy how the prices are shafting people out of their hard earned cash. Indeed it is a weird world!

I might pick up Black Ops 2 when it comes out, either on the Wii U or PC, although if I get it on the PC, the amount of hackers will be rife within a matter of days.
