    Might grab it on sale. Hate this "first on this/that" BS though, there's no reason for it

    of course there is, the devs get millions for this crap, or more likely publishing firms like activision, not devs

    To my knowledge they never released mod tools or dedicated servers for the remaster. The game does look nicer for sure, but to me it doesn't justify paying what I assume will be £30 for what will in effect be a downgrade IMO over the original game.

    Its unfortunate that the original call of duty 4 is suffering in playerbase now, remains to be seen whether this will be a boon to it or a final nail in the coffin.

    Also as has been pointed out elsewhere on Hexus already, the cheek of still selling the the older games including call of duty 4 for £10 on a steam sale.

    On a positive note though, glad theyre dropping the infinite warfare side of things, this game will do better on its own feet I think.

    Meh - Picked up infinite warfare for a £10 (without this). No idea why someone would pay this much for a remaster... Quite enjoyed the campaign for IW to be honest.

    Re: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered launches tomorrow

    Wait... so... a ten year old game (currently going for $5 on Steam) with the graphics redone is now worth $40, plus another $20 for the DLC variety map pack? Are people actually planning on *paying*???

    Re: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered launches tomorrow

    Paid £20 for CODIW and COD4Remastered. Why would I pay £30 just for one game ?

    Re: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered launches tomorrow

    So is CODIW/COD4RM worth it on the PC then? I had the original COD4 but I've kind of "mislaid" my copy so wouldn't mind getting another (although not at Activision's daft prices).

    Other option is the XBox CODIW Legacy pack which I'm sure I saw my local Sainsbury's doing at about £40, (which seems justifiable for two games to me).

    COD4 original still has somewhat of a playerbase, though its been dwindling the last year or 2, still probably equivalent to cod2. Remaster I couldnt tell you, but it has no mod tools or dedicated servers if t hat matters to you. I expect the diehard fans will stick to the original for that reason, but not sure.
