    I highly doubt that all of those signing are PC gamers.

    I highly doubt that even 10% of the signatories will actually not buy the game.

    I do not understand what the problem is with Infinity Ward’s decision… but then, I’m just one man.

    Oh no, wait, I’m actually 10,000,000 people around the globe who don’t give a shit. Who’d have thought.

    Just in case you don’t get my point… I am specifically saying that you, Blackdreamhunk, are an idiot.

    If your a console gamer and want to support the cause buy all your games used or rent them.

    publishers don’t make money if it’s used or little money if it’s rented. :)

    not only that it save you a ton of money.

    We’re too busy enjoying our amazing games to care about your nonsense, bdh.

    Stop hating on consoles!

    You’re just a (console) PLAYER HATER!

    Hating because you’re jealous.
