    They do go on sale, the Summer Pack a couple of years ago had everything from 1 to WaW for $30. Plus it's the Australian pricing thing, from my side of the lake MW and MW2 are $20 normal price. That BO and MW3 are $40 and $60 RRP is still insane though (especially considering BF3 with all expansions has a RRP of $50, who would pay $40 for BO?)

    damn it i forgot black ops 2 came out and thought MW3 for 30 for amazon was a good price and almost bought it.

    does MW3 have good playerbase or is it best to just move onto the next one...cant believe they release one so often.

    been meaning to get back into some cod since cod4...but i am not used to paying so much for games these days :)

    CoD is now a yearly franchise, Black Ops one year, MW the next.

    I'd assume MW3 would still be alive and kicking though, only a year old.

    Different type of game then Homeworld. It's a turn based strategy game that i found to get boring/repetitive after around 8 hours (However i played alot of sots 2 and gal civ 2 which are more complex). Would be good as a starter game if you haven't played that type of game before though.

    Also Interface is best out of any turn based game in space, makes things a little easier.

    I reckon there's some big celebrations going on at Ubisoft right now. Someone (me) is actually using Uplay for more than one game. This is big news for them.

    I think there are a few more people of late using uplay out of necessity more than choice. Anno, Farcry3, Assassins Creed, etc I only just realised how many games I had in my uplay account and I have only purchased 1 (farcry 3 and that was only for $8).

    Better yet, get the Desert to Sea bundle on Amazon for $9.99. You'll save eighteen cents and get Bioshock 1 and 2 as well. This offer should still be available tomorrow.
