I haven't bought an Activision game since World at War, and I will continue that.

Are you f'ing kidding me? I was just about to buy Black Ops because I thought it was a decent game. But with the new map pack being for the 360 first, and now they say they are going to close the servers, why the hell would I buy the game! It's not like the Single player is worth paying $60. Last time I ever consider buying from those a-holes EVER.

Where did they say they were closing the servers?

In response to ongoing connection issues and vocal customer criticism, a spokesperson for Activision has reportedly told an angry PlayStation 3 owner that the publisher may shut down Call of Duty: Black Ops’ PlayStation Network servers.

But that says "the publishers may shut down". It doesn't say anywhere that they are.

If common sense actually made its rare appearance at OCN, I think we'd probably all know that there is no way in hell they'd close down the servers. Too much bad publicity. This is just another mis-quote blown out of proportion in order to make the headlines.

Show me an official notice saying you have a legal right to Activision controlled servers for the game. Legally, they can pull the plug whenever they want. It wouldn't be good for business, but I don't think Activision has cared much about customer satisfaction for a while now.

Personally, I quit buying Activision games after I purchased Assassin's Creed 1 through Steam and realized I still had to jump through hoops due to Activision's retarded and unnecessary DRM. Aside from that, AC1 was a terrible port with an almost completely unusable control system. It was developed purely for consoles, and a minimum of effort was invested in porting it simply to make a quick money grab from PC gamers. I believe they eventually pulled back on the DRM when public outcry got too loud, but they did it like they were doing us a favor, or pacifying a spoiled baby.

In short...no thanks, Activision. There are plenty of developers out there willing to treat me with at least a little respect.

Ubisoft publishes the Assassin's Creed series. Activision has nothing to do with it.
