Topical ParagraphEdit

I want to know how this game is going to be packaged, because how it will be packaged with Infinite Warfare could very well determine if it will truly be necessary, after release, to buy Infinite Warfare to get CoD4R (Call of Duty 4 Remastered). If physical copies for XONE and PS4 have this game as a downloadable code or seperate disc, unused copies of the game are going to spring up on Ebay, I'm sure of it. If non-physical copies from retailers like Steam have the two as seperate downloads and games, people will buy the Legacy, refund Infinite, and keep CoD4R. It's just human nature. The only way I can see this actually working is if the game uses some crazy DRM that checks for Infinite Warfare on the account (non-physical) or is on the same disc, in a similar manner to DOOM and DOOM 2 on the DOOM 3 BFG disc (physical).

I'm pretty sure that you won't be able to refund IW and keep CoD4. I'm also pretty sure that unused copies of the remasters on ebay are going to be more expensive than the legacy edition, unless they were stolen. Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 21:07, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

That's the thing. The unused copies will go for more than the Legacy, and send people profits (if you don't think people will spend more than an item should be worth on something, look at CSGO knives: $400 USD for a cosmetic, or more depending on rarity). People, let's be frank, could see Infinite Warfare, particularly people like me who don't buy CoDs until after they release (like, a month or more), not like it, and simply look up "Call of Duty 4 Remastered Code Card" on Ebay, Craigslist, or other sale site and buy it there. It may be more expensive, but, like I proved above, people will spend far more on something that they want to get around what they don't, and the comparison stands, because in reality the CoD4 Remaster really is a cosmetic item, because CoD4 copies still exist, and I am certain there are ways to get into the textures and models to update them.

As for Steam, if it's anything like the [Valve Complete Pack], it'll be doable. And considering I have yet to see a bundle that didn't work like that... SteveHeist (talk) 23:07, May 3, 2016 (UTC)
