The fact that Black Ops is still £40 on steam (Where most PC releases are £30 - 35 proves that they have not changed at all.

supersonicjerry2047d ago

From a business perspective they are trying to get all the money they can before number two comes out because they know certain people will still buy the first black ops. I don't agree with it ether but hey I know i'm not going to buy it for 40bucks.

I thought BO died on PC anyways...
EDIT: actually, i thought cod died in general on pc
EDITx2: Not COD4 and 5

Nothing is free you still gotta pay for dlc lol

christheredhead2047d ago

Who says you have to pay for DLC? Its not like they automatically charge you a mandatory fee.

supersonicjerry2047d ago

They said DLC is separate from Call of Duty elite that is way they are coming out with a new thing that is like $55 if you want the map packs for Black ops2.

What's the difference?

jetlian2047d ago

elite turned into a season pass aka reduced price overall but pay upfront.

Lol.. The title of this. I think it's more the other way around, BF copied COD with an "Elite" service.

SJPFTW2047d ago

Yahhh and Call of Duty Elite copied Halo and a couple other games. LOL @ trying to make COD seem orginal

I think he means the dlc "package" idea.

The_KELRaTH2047d ago

I see the real issue as the map packs being simply overpriced.
16 maps with all the coding of the game and all the singleplayer content typically costs under £30 on release (PS3/360) but 4 maps and a few extras cost £11.95. Also you can't get a store deal so you're paying full price and you can't sell them 2nd hand with the game (should you wish).

I'd much prefer to go back to buying proper retail packaged expansion packs than the current overpriced DLC.

$20 expansions of old with 8-10 maps, dozens of new things, updates, patches, free goodies, basically an overhaul.
