Activision originally priced their game at £54.99, £10 more then normal RRP for new game releases, now with a push to get gamers to buy from their retail stores and supermarkets such as Tesco and Sainsbury are heavily undercutting online and specialist retailers. Sainsbury’s will be selling Modern Warfare 2 – 2009’s most anticipated video game – for just £26, while main rivals Tesco will be offering the game at £25 if bought with another title, or £39.70 on its own. Asda, meanwhile, will also be selling the game at a cut-price £32. Even electronics wholesalers are getting in on the action, with ‘cash & carry’ Makro offering a voucher on their website for registered customers, allowing them to purchase the game for just £20.
