Online retailers boycott MW2 PC thanks to Steam
Thanks to the PC version of Modern Warfare 2 including a mandatory installation of Valve’s Steamworks, Direct2Drive is boycotting the game. Like, it’s not selling it.
“We don’t believe games should force the user to install a Trojan Horse,” a rep told Kotaku.
The IGN-owned DD service isn’t the only one taking umbrage: Impulse and Gamersgate are also dropping the title.
Direct2Drive has said it’s now refusing to sell any game bundled in such a manner until Valve has “decoupled its retail marketplace” from Steam’s other services.
This could turn mighty. Hit the link for the full thing.
