Supermarkets go to war over MW2 pricing

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.

Thanks, Gamerzines.
