Yes I want to play Black Ops 2. See the new maps in action. Have fun in combat training and mess around with the bots. Play with a couple of (real life) friends and some others I dont even know but have been playing with for a while......
But they sell us an incomplete game for $60. It is missing Nuketown Zombies. And from the leaked footage that maps looks like its a lot of fun. We bought Nuketown already with BO1 now they are using it to blackmail us into buying the $80 special edition. Do you let people disrespect you like this? I dont.
I am not paying $20 for a map. And I am not buying an incomplete game. I have self-respect and value myself high. Next thing Activision is going to do is charge you 1$ for 100 bullets and probably many people will buy them.
I am not joining this club. I dont fall for the scarcity and marketing tricks of Activision.
It does require a lot of self-respect and discipline. Cos it would be easier to go in the store on monday or tuesday pay only $60 and enjoy the game. The new maps. Maybe even the zombie mode for a couple of hours. But by not buying this. I know I have overcome an addiction. I know I have avoided a company that ruthlessly scams people with scarcity and marketing lies. I know I have so much self-respect I can not buy this game. I avoid the short-term gain i would get from buying this. As I avoid short-term gain from eating fast food or watching TV instead of working out. I avoid everything thats bad for me and i am proud of it.
My long term gain from not buying Black Ops 2 is this: I respect myself. In business and in private life. This way I get only the best of things. I am rich and wealthy and I have amazing women always by my side and great friends.
So I am thankful Activision is selling an incomplete game. Enjoy it if you buy it. I am happy for getting the chance to say NO.
No to scarcity with pre-orders and special editions. No to fake marketing and lies. No to getting tricked.
Enjoy your week I will. This life is too short and too amazing to waste it with companies that dont repect you. I rather play real life and meet some new people outside, play beach volleyball and soccer with friends and have some great beach partys than being at home and playing this incomplete game. And before you troll my topic. Think of what you are worth to yourself? Where will you be in 5 years, in 10 years? Do you really want to play a game by a company that uses these tactics and would you also pay $1 for 1000 bullets? Cos thats where Activision is going right now. Charging for in-game items if you let them. Now dont think of me cos honestly I dont care for your opinion unless you proofed yourself in this life and made millions like me. Look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself if you are proud of yourself. Thats what counts in life. Good luck.
