On the plus side of things, a standalone fee for playing Modern Warfare online could result in steady updates for the game and free content – namely extra maps and new weapons as an example, but would there be guarantees on constant bug fixes?
Hell to the no.
Yes I would. Wait. It's not opposite day? Sorry. Not a chance. There are plenty of great shooters out there to play online. I'd just move to one of the others. Call of Duty is fun, but they're pretty arrogant if they think their experience is that much better than the other guys that it's worth charging extra.
Only if the special edition came with 3 grams of coke and a couple of high class whores. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
no fucking way ide pay for online they already over charge for the game itself
Yes Call of Nooby is teh greatest game supa dupa hardcore with its auto aim. /sarc Whoever does pay for this is a gloryhole and Activision is gonna penetrate you HARD AND RAW.
why the fuck should i pay if its peer to peer ???
Paying a subscription fee for COD multiplayer doesn't seem to be financial sustainable model. I believe the quality will go down in the product overall. We've already witnessed Activision pushing the gimped "Stimulus Package" DLC containing maps from Modern Warefare. Gamers expect quality releases and good value for their dollars. The cost model to provide quality DLC consistently would be to high therefore causing higher rates for subscription fees. Throwing map packs together does not make sense today, word gets out real quick on quality therefore hampering sales. I imagine a scenario where Activision would charge around $8.00 per month to play (+ the cost of XBL $50.00) that would cost a player $140.00 per year to play COD. Where as now you pay your $59.00 and possible 3 maps (even at $15.00) is only $104.00.
$140 - $155.00 plus XBL for Multiplayer is around $205.00 just to play for a year. It would cost $146.00 for each additional year to play COD. $104.00 is a better value.
This is what we have to deal with when some people think that pay to play online is an okay thing.
No frickin way...i will never pay for online, ever...thats the only reason why i dont own a 360
I wouldn't pay for any monthly fees to play games. I got use to get it free.
yep...I wouldnt pay for call of duty ever. Especially seeing the complete sh*t that got released when MW2 was out. Hmmm a game that isnt finished and doesnt work. No thanks Activision. I hate activision
I love CoD, but no I wouldn't pay.
Totally. Because I don't have shooters like BF: BC2 and Killzone 2 ect to play which is free. Hell, why don't they charge me 50c per hour? /sarcasm
No chance, we pay enough already
I know people are saying No but if it does happen I wouldn't be surprised to see people pay for it. People said they were done with COD after the whole Infinity Ward thing happened and yet look at the pre order numbers for Call Of Duty black ops its still looking like its going to sell huge.
Those people can keep paying and deserve to keep that experience. If they are that stupid go ahead and pay monthly for a game with a yearly release.
I only have one thing to say to those people who will be willing to pay for such atrocity and that is...goodluck.
Yeah, who would pay to play online. That's just idiocy.
I would pay to get Pachter to shut his mouth.
wasn't it kotick who said he wanted to charge monthly though?
He can shut the hell up too. Both of them are so focused on the money they forget about the consumers and what they think.
YOU BET YOUR ASS I AM!!! /s to the max...
I hope this is the last nail in the coffin. If their obsession with profits destroys COD I'll be happy.
I couldn't have put it any better than this! No wouldn't pay to play it online! I'm sick of Call-o-dooty and all the BS that goes on while playing it.One of the most unenjoyable games I have ever played! The compition will be hot this coming holiday season with plenty of other games to play online for FREE! ( Yep,I said the "F" word! )
i would not...games are already costly...especially since mw2 decided to charge alot more because they could...me personally would not pay for this...i would rather play other shooters...and its true waht booby said the ceo of activision is a 'prick'...i see them losing sales big time..only die hard fans would consider this...after the sales of mw2 though i don't think they really care about the franchise anymore..as they even used bits of cod4's maps in the mw2 maps...link: http://www.youtube.com/watc... overall i just see them milking the franchise for what its worth...the game is good because its easy to get used to, and it was the first fps ([email protected]) i played, i did not like fps's before...but if there gna make us buy the game then paymore to play it, i mean wtf?? fuk that shit...kz3, bfbc, moh, geow, and other fps's here i come (won't be gettin geow seein as i only have a ps3, but included it there as a reference)
no because i can easly do without playing COD games the only online service i would pay for is PSN because its a must have & i'm glad its FREE. ;)
If Bobby Kotick bends over and lets me kick him in the sack! a dozen times.Then i will pay gladly $10 a month.
probably will let you just to get the $10 XD
If it was the only FPS in the world I probably would pay. But its not.
Publishing games and Bobby Kotick agreed to getting the cast of twilight shoved up his ass.
if i think that Xbox Live is to expensive to play online, do you think i would pay an evil company to play a crappy shooter online full of campers, boosters, noobtubers and 10 year olds screaming down a mic? Yeah, i think not
You left out elite commandos running around. A universal soldier practically.
Hell and No
No. I play MAG, Killzone 2, Resistance: FOM, Resistance 2, Unreal Tournament III, Red Dead Redemption, and Uncharted 2 on PS3. I play Counter Strike: Source, TF2, Crysis, Golden Eye Source, Battlefield 2, and L4D2 on PC. I play Gears of War on 360. I don't need Call of Duty. (I did not include UNO, Super-Sonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle Cars, White Knight Chronicles, Burnout: Paradise, or various other games I play online because I went with shooters.)
I would just stick with Halo. CoD is such a noob game anyway
PC - torrent - cracked servers = They will learn
I dont think ill ever buy another call of duty game....
i'll pay foe it... Edit: If I want it!!!
you seem the type that don't know what he wants till they tell him what he wants in other words you're whats wrong with gaming (and almost everything) today
I think majority wouldn't pay for it, but of course a small percentage would. But those 20 - 30% who would pay for it would stop after a month due to the lack of people playing the multiplayer at all.
I would never pay to play cod cause there are good competition out there which is free to play and cod is not that good that it would be worth the extra bucks. I dont pay for PS+ cause i dont think what it offers is worth my buck. I pay for XBL cause its worth the bucks but i would like if it ever became a free service like PSN. I used to pay for WOW and Lotr cause i found it worthwhile.
Absolutely no chance lol. I can't even be convinced to buy a COD game anymore never mind pay to play it online.
Well considering the game itself is already retailing at a higher price than most games, I think not. Gaming is an expensive hobby providing you cannot find good deals so I'd rather not spend more of my money for online. It's a bit extortionate don't you think?
Hell no, there are to many shooters out there to choose from for free. When I have to pay every month to play online then im done playing online.
NOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT :D http://n4g.com/news/565948/...
XBOX Live Gold + COD Premium subscription = Expensive = No chance!
+ said game + internet charge = Really fucking expensive = No fucking chance
No way, that's like saying you wanna pay to get pissed off.
FUCK NO. seriously, im not paying MONTHLY to play one fucking game. i dont mind the yearly cost of xbox because i can play any game under the xbox library's sun, but i'm not paying monthly to play one game, NEVER. WHO the FUCK does activision THINK THEY ARE???
Oh yeah and I'll pay to use the internet as well! Oh wait..... :P But seriously. If people do pay for this, I have no idea what they won't pay for on anything with CoD slapped onto it. The way I see it, Activision has done everything possible to the CoD Franchise to kill it. But yet it's still alive......
Let's all pirate the game and nobody buy the retail version if they do charge monthly online fees. Just to show them how dumb they are. Maybe back when Cod4 I would've paid for some months.
I already pay for it when i purchase the game
I'll Spill it for you H.E.L.L.Space.N.O
I wonder what ms has to say about these ideas, lets say this came to fruition, would ms want people to pay additional fees to play cod online when they already pay for gold. that might sway people to the ps3 since online is free there so you avoid one cost.
the apocalypse of gaming is coming people our only savior is the holy PC with the greed of companies like Crapivision and CRAPmasters our only hope is to turn back to the PC with the small companies and the indie stuff and hacking SPREAD THE WORD PEOPLE.....THE APOCALYPSE OF GAMING IS COMING
greed... i think it's about time Obama sends in Soap to take out those in management.
no way i will pay for playing.
Activision are a greedy shower of bastards.
well, if it brought back dedicated servers.. got rid of the terrible hitmarkers like mw2 snipers have, the terrible hit detection, better match making & spawn system, no BS perks like, lightweight, commando, juggernaught/painkiller, last stand/final stand.. no more heartbeat sensors or thermal, made noobtubes take away perk one, remove tactical insertions, keep game winning kills, make it require skill to be good( you know from the days where if you werent good you got owned until you got good, not like now where the actual good players get raped by noobs hiding in corners for heartbeat sensors/cold blooded/commando lol).. and made it like $15-£10 for a YEAR then yes.. because i love COD when its nicely balanced and knifes dont overpower guns, and takes skill lol.. but the chances of them doing all that are probably very slim, well half will be done with black ops, but i still have a strange feeling that something will go wrong and still benefit the less skilled players lol..
