In case you haven’t noticed, Modern Warfare 2 launches tonight from midnight. And already the supermarkets are at war with each other because of it.
Sainsburys has confirmed that they will dramatically slash the price of the game for the Xbox 360 and PS3 from the RRP of £55, all the way down to £26, while Asda will sell the game for £32 and Tesco will sell it for £25, but only when bought with any other chart title.
Back in October, the supermarkets went at it with FIFA 10.
If you’re boycotting the game in the UK for the price alone, you no longer have an excuse. Get to it, Radiohead.

Independent UK retailers are hopping mad at supermarket stores like Tesco and Asda, which are running specials on FIFA 10 for half its recommended retail price.
So mad, that an outcry for legislation to prevent the below cost selling is being shouted.
“It’s bully boy pricing really,” Chips MD Don McCabe told GI.biz. “Other countries have laws against this selling at a loss for very good reason.
“Once they’ve got the whole market they’ll expand their profits, reduce the choice and screw the suppliers,” said McCabe. The only thing that can be done is what other countries have, which is to recognize the insidious march of the supermarkets model is detrimental to the consumer ultimately.”
There’s more of back and forth there through the link. You should go have a read.

Let the price wars begin.
The supermarket is the first to dramatically cut the price of the console before it’s even launched. If you do pre-order it from there, you’ll also get free delivery. The only downside is that it’ll be released on October 2 and not October 1.
