Gamer’s Voice, a pressure group founded to act as a conduit between gamers, media and the Government, have announced that they will be bringing problems regarding Call of Duty: Black Op’s to the attention of the Government agencies that protect consumers rights in the UK.
Gamer’s Voice says this is in response to a formal letter they sent to Activision Blizzard on the 22nd of December which received no reply.
Gamer’s Voice states: “it doesn’t matter how big a game is, it should not be released ‘unfinished’ or with bugs that make the game unplayable, which are words we have seen in a lot of emails to us recently”
And go on to say: “Gamers’ Voice accepts that bugs do slip through the net as it’s impossible for developers to find every single bug. We do not accept however allowing entire sections of the PS3 and PC gaming community appearing to be used as game testers for an extended period after a game’s release, yet being asked to pay for the privilege. This is not a tenable way to treat consumers of video games.”
I shall be contacting Gamer’s Voice, who now have over 16,000 members and growing, in attempt to get an interview and get their views on these problems.
