ok so my disc drive stopped working and i wanted to buy mw3 from psn. but why do they have it as a crappy bundle for 39.99? i have all the dlc. i just want the freakin game. like i saw it as a french download but who knows if that **bleep** works. Why cant i just buy the **bleep** game and thats it.
There actually was a Call of Duty sale held a couple of weeks back where Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 could be picked up with its first DLC for about $35 (or $30 if you're a member of PlayStation Plus). The discount has since expired. The reason Activision lists the game as a bundle set instead of a standalone product is probably that they figure anyone looking to pick up the game digitally must not have bought the game previously and would want an extra taste that comes with the game. That or they're hungry for even more moolah.
Either way, for now it looks as if you're going to have to swallow a tough pill if you must have your digital copy right away. Otherwise you could always wait and see if the price comes down through the store at a later point. You may be waiting some time for that to happen though. There are of course other options out there, such as paying to fix the disc drive, or if you're a master of fixing do it yourself.
