Players are selling the Burger Town skin for half the cost of Modern Warfare 2


How much does a Whopper meal cost these days? $6? $7? Regardless, we're pretty sure Burger King, home of the Whopper, doesn't sell their best-selling bundles for a steep price. Yet, gamers are taking advantage of the latest crossover promotion between Call of Duty and Burger King to make bank.

The new Modern Warfare 2 skin only costs the price of a regular Whopper meal if it's available in your area.

A quick search on eBay and other online sites will show you how players are selling Burger King's "proprietary" Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 operator skin for $30, which is nearly half the $70 price of a copy of the game.

This is obviously not what Burger King and Activision Blizzard intended. The goal was to get players to buy the Modern Warfare II x Burger King meal, fill themselves up enough to use the one-hour double XP bonus and show off their all-new Burger Town operator skin. Since the promotion is only available in 40 countries, which excludes the United States and the United Kingdom, some players will do just about anything to get their hands on it.

Activision Blizzard still hasn't given an explanation why the Burger Town skin isn't available worldwide.

On the other hand, players from Puerto Rico can eat their meals in peace in a Burger King that's fully decked out in Modern Warfare 2's green and black color scheme. The same goes for Mexico and Saudi Arabia. Even better, players from Paris got a chance to play Modern Warfare 2 on an ordering kiosk over the weekend.

TOP GAMEPLAY HIGHLIGHTS

It's baffling that Activision Blizzard didn't partner with Burger King stores in the US and the UK, two of its biggest markets. After all, even Hungry Jack's, which is exclusive to Australia, is getting in on the fun.

With all the marketing Activision Blizzard did for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, you'd think that the Burger Town skin would be atop the list.

Having said that, we can't blame Call of Duty players for dropping half the price of Modern Warfare 2 on a single cosmetic. Burger Town is one of Call of Duty's longest-running easter eggs after making its debut in the original Modern Warfare 2 in 2009. It's like owning a piece of history, except, Activision Blizzard is making it nearly thrice as expensive as the Call of Duty Endowment Pack.
