Call Of Duty: Black Ops gets £55 UK price tag

Pre-order details reveal ERP, but Activision says it's not confirmed

Remember the outcry when Activision priced Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 at £55 - a a fiver more than your usual 360 or PS3 title?

It looks as though the publisher's going to do the same with Call Of Duty: Black Ops, if UK retailers' pre-order listings are to be believed.

Gamers can now pre-order the title from the likes of Amazon, GAME, and more.


However, the retailers are listing the title as having an RRP of £54.99 - although most of them have sliced £10 off that.

The row over the 'premium' pricing of Modern Warfare 2 erupted last year, but it didn't seem to hurt the game's sales: It went on to become the second-highest grossing video game of all time in the UK.

An Activision spokesperson told CVG: "With regards to Black Ops, we haven't confirmed any pricing details at this stage so have nothing to comment on."
