"This is a public service announcement for those looking to purchase Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare on PC: don't purchase this game at all"

Had to fix that, this is what the real public service announcement should be.

What happens if you buy the retail boxed version? Does it just have a CD-Key for the Steam version or what?

This is a good question? How has this worked with past releases. Ever since Steam released, I just bought COD from there & pre-loaded (haven't bought a COD game in 2-3 years though).

I'll go out on a limb and say this was Microsoft's decision & not Activision. So like MS to do something like this.

I don't understand why someone would buy a game on any store other than the Steam Store for PC games. I could see redeeming a Steam Key from another store, but not another game flat out that is available on Steam.

That has to be the dumbest thing I have ever read! Are you F-ing kidding me????

I am done with Windows Store! They are a joke! I was just about to purchase the Digital Version through Win Store because there was a 20% discount. Wow, am I glad I seen this article before I did.

Now, I am RUNNING over to Steam to GLADLY pay the full price with pride!

Microsoft can kiss my collective butt!

Hard to understand why anyone would spend that amount of money on an app when you can buy the PC version on disc. Apps are generally for mobile devices.

Programs are what Microsoft calls "Apps" now. Don't know why. Now all my Programs on my Windows 10 PC are called "Apps".

Microsoft is just dumb like that now!

I agree but, because there are quality games like Forza 3, Gears of War 4 and others you can not get on Steam, we're kinda stuck. Believe me, I wouldn't buy any game on Win Store if they were all available on Steam!
