Hello FPSBanana. This is my first thread here so im sorry if i did anything wrong.
But i just wanted you to stay in touch to the latest Modern Warfare 2 stories, this time affecting Germany.
As you may know, CoD MW2 includes the airport mission where hundreds of civillians are shot and youre part of it. In the german version, this mission was cut so you cant shoot any unarmed people , if you do so, the mission ends. The international version is not cut.
So , because of the prices, i decided to import 2 versions of CoD Modern Warfare 2 (about per copy 40 €), one as a birthday present, another one for a friend who asked me to order another copy for him. As the games arrived, I eventually gave them to my friends who waited 2 days for them. As he inserted the disk and started installing, an error message popped up, saying it is no longer possible to activate the international version in germany "du to local legislatives" - because of the airport mission. I am lucky, i activated mine one month before - but i think problems will occur soon.
Anyways, Activision Germany offers a "service" where you can send your english version back to them and they send a german one which you can activate (instead of just removing the mission digitally...) . So I wrote to the support, verified my products and then sent them for about 5$ to the Netherlands. This was 2 weeks agbut the support was already closed. I got the support e-mail from gamestar, the most popular gaming magazin in germany and the mail adresse stood on the activision site. Im worried now because the last time i wrote an email when the office was closed was answered by an computergenerated e-mail, this time i did not receive any mail and the fact that they need two weeks for a package worries me even more.
What do you think about this?
Indeed, its just a shame what theyre doing with paying customers . I just posted this because i think it seems like the whole product was planned to be as client-unfriendly as possible and i wanted you to know how thinks are in germany. Its just sad what they made out of that game.
