Activision says you should "expect" paid-for online models such as those in World of Warcraft to make the transition to other games, including Call of Duty.
agreed, if they do this, suck it activitision.
Killzone2 32 players + online dedicated servers, psn(free) Edit: resistance 2, Mag have dedicated servers+more players, but I preffer killzone2
Activision Execs need to STFU
charging more for the game wasn't enough they wanna charge a monthly fee to play it now?? They got a good thing going right now why are they trying to commit business suicide? Would never happen anyways as users would just play the free games instead forcing them to go free.
We've jumped through so many hoops for these greedy tosspots who wouldn't even put in dedicated servers? And now this? So glad I don't buy anything Acti make anymore.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAH! ...
one of the best games ive ever played next to COD4 but ill probably pay for a couple months then when its february, the cold will start to go away and everyones gonna be outside so... what im trying to say is that if they start charging then MW2 is just gonna be those games that you play for a little while but then it goes to the dusty pile of games me and my friends come home after school and play about 4 or 5 games of COD4 lol its kinda tradition if it wasnt for COD then id be playing resistance 2 and killzone 2 but if the fees start coming then im only playing Playstation FPS ... theres GT5 god of war 1 2 and 3 ratchet and clank and so many other exclusives on PS3 which makes me not wanna play COD even more if i have to pay for it UNCHARTED 2 :] funny comment up there "they do learn well from microsoft"
This is a stupid F'ing idea there rolling in money and If they do this I will ignore all other activision games that come out from here on in.
"According to the Activision CFO, there is a demand from its core fanbase to pay for additional services." what a load of horse ****. theres no demand to pay for additional services, they just want to play the damn game online for free like most games have been since the advent of online PC gaming. just when i was starting to give MW2 a second chance because of its TPS mode, Activision finds a way to take a million steps backward.
We will gladly pay for free services. -_-"
Do it kotick ,I triple dare you and you'll soon know how hitler lost!!
In a bunker with a pistol and some cyanide for the wife?
No he got a machine gun in the face from Eli Roth!
LMFAO, nice one
Even if they do it you know the hardcore Call of Duty players will jump on it, they would essentially want to turn it into the Battle.Net of COD only difference being every game required a few for entry instead of one.
That's just silly. //Dylai safonwyr sugno fy pidyn

"Saaking - 2 minutes ago PM Track Ignore 1.1 - It wouldn't surprise me if it. PS3 owners wouldn't be affected but it'd just be unfair. Imagine paying XBL TO PLAY ONLINE and then having to pay to play online...AGAIN. So basically you'd get charged to access the FULL game (SP and MP) twice?! WTF! " Why wouldn't PS3 owners be affected if they had to pay for playing Call of Duty also? I don't get your unlogical thinking at all. They didn't have to pay before and in the new situation they should. Sounds like being affected to me mate.
You obviously didnt get what he was saying so ill try to break it down for you. Xbox users already pay to play games online and if they started to charge a fee to play Call of Duty games online Xbox users would have 2 pay twice. (yea they could work it out so you dont have to have live but lets face it no one buys just CoD games to play online) Ps3 users dont pay to play online so they would only have to pay the fee to play Call of Duty games. Saaaking was kidna wrong though in saying Ps3 users wouldnt be affected but they wouldnt be affected as bad is what i think he was getting at. Me personally though i would never pay to play CoD online unless it was something like 10$ a year and it had dedicated servers/free map packs/and clan game servers with good leaderboards.
Actually 360 owners would have to pay 3 times. Once to their ISP once for Live and once again for MW2. IMO if people weren't so complacent paying $50 a year for something that should be free. Activision would never have the nerve to even think about a monthly fee.
And PS3 owners would have to pay 2 times. Once to their ISP and once for MW2. And they'd still get a worse experience than 360 owners who are paying for LIVE.
Pirate i owned CoD4 on both Ps3 and X360 and their is really no difference in the online play (or any p2p online game), the only real difference was in the xbox version you could join peoples games and now you can do that on Mw2 on the ps3, you're just a fanboy thats why you THINK its a better service...I dont mind paying for live because 50$ a year isnt much to me but i know when it comes to online play for multiplatform games its the same experience and if there are any problems in either version they are usually fixed within a month of release and usually sooner than that.
If by a worse online experience you mean not being called [email protected] There are no dedicated servers for MW2 on live and the party chat was disabled, so how is it better?
@Pirateogta How is free wifi and online play, with most of the exclusives having dedicated server support, a worse experience?
And I want them to kiss my a$$
eh why not, many people are willing to give a hand and a foot for those goggles, and extra fee wont kill them
so long call of duty if that happens lol. im cheap. thats why i got a PS3 instead of Xbox360 haha. free online :)
Your mom, bobby. Your mom.
Their greed is going to be the end of them...
thats ridiculous lmao what would they justify the charge with?? i mean wow charges users cus of the server upkeep and updates etc with a p2p game like mw2 where we have to pay when they release dlc anyway how can they justify a charge??
I actually took the survey a few months back. Now at that time there was no mention to actually charge people to play online (although that could have changed). What was being asked about and tossed around was multiple "tiers". Paying a fee not to play the game but for extra stuff. Some of the options were: "ability to play without having stats tracked so you could practice" "ability to customize characters and weapons" "ability to have playlists with more people" "exclusive access to betas" "early access to map packs" "online stat tracking" "clan matches and rankings" Stuff like that, with multiple ways of charging whether it be monthly, yearly, or a one time fee. So more about talking features out and introducing new features only to paying members rather than charging for online play per se.
So wait there gonna charge users for P2P lol?
