    I understand the idea behind it but...you really think they want to break even just on pre-orders? Bold move.

    When has Call of Duty ever "broke even"... ;)

    They aren't going for breaking even, they are going for maximum profit for Infinite Warfare.
    The CoD series always posts massive pre-orders and first week sales. The addition of a Remaster of CoD4 will only push that even further.

    From a business view, it's a smart move.
    Personally... I could care less. CoD4 isn't the shining gem to me others see it as. A remastered version of it doesn't get me excited or even interested.

    I haven't really enjoyed one of Infinity Ward's CoD games since... CoD2. And even that one I felt was weak when compared to the first one.
    And, even then, I thought United Offensive was a better game then the original CoD. :)

    The Modern Warfare Remaster looks really good, can't say the same for Infinite Warfare.

    I feel I'm the only one saddened by the fact that this is what Raven Software have been brought down to.
    Map pack DLC and remaking existing games.

    They deserve so much better.
    But, really, when was the last time Activision allowed any of their studios to do something remotely creative and not attached to Call of Duty... oh yeah. 2010. When Raven released Singularity.

    I really liked Singularity, didn't realize it was the same team behind it. Now that you've brought it up I'm a little disheartened by it all.

    So their "sales pitch" to us customers is - pay up $90 for the special edition pre-order of CoD Infinite and get CoD4 Remastered for free? :) And people will throw their money at them? Has it really gone this far?

    Yes, you have to pay more to get the game. Normal pre-order is excludes the remake.

    Wtf... people are still playing this franchise?

    How many times do people want to be bent over and ****ed up the arse by a giant marketing engine?

    And they raped a David Bowie song so close to his passing. Unforgivable.

    Agreed. Such a waste of talent. Would love to see Raven break free and make another Soldier of Fortune game. Oh my...

    Raven also made these little games called Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy...

    There are more Battlefield players than Call of Duty players?

    Are you sure the normal game (and price) will not include MW Remastered? I have not seen that stated specifically anywhere, not to mention the prices you are throwing out.


    I agree, but you do realize what this means, right? After this launches, the elephant in the room will be how much bigger the CoD4RMMP player base is compared to IWMP.

    I found this on a Swedish game site although they didnt mention any source.
    Two of the three versions can be found on Steam though.

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/292730/

    Edit : Looks like they were right, check out all four versions here : https://www.callofduty.com/uk/en/infinitewarfare/buy although one of them is console only. And the standard edition does not seem to include CoD:MW

    No, you need to buy the Legacy edition to get MW2 Remastered wich is 79$.

    You can always get it somewhere else, i almost never buy them directly from steam cause of the prices.

    Wow. I couldn't think of a way for Infinity Ward to get back into the game after MW3 and, especially, Ghosts.
    Doing a remaster of Modern Warfare is genius though. Guess I'd get that for the remaster alone :)

    Gonna have to keep an eye on this....

    And honestly, the ONLY reason I can see for Activision to not include MW remastered in the base edition is pure greed and spite towards it's fanbase.

    The remastered edition looks pretty good actually. I loved the single player COD MW story. SAS FTW.

    But I am not supporting buying older remastered games and at least here we get a NEW game plus and older remastered edition.

    MS did worst by releasing and selling an older remastered edition with no new GOW for example.
