VG247: "If a video recorded by a 360Junkies member is to be believed, the sub-plan would be payable via MS points. The video shows the player trying to join a multiplayer session in the game via a friend’s gamercard, as detailed below."
So how goes that Activision boycott, guys?
oh its gunna be sweet. ima start off by playing some killzone2 then gradually work my way into some bfbc2 all while thinking: "take that activision!" and then pre order my copy of MOH : ) but to be honest, i am heavily into my psp at the moment playing socom ftb3 and then MGS peace walker. online FPS are not my thing at the moment, i feel sori for yall that are addicted to MWF2, ill say a prayer that yall dont miss out on TOO many games...
^^^im with this guy.
I'm playing peace walker right now. if it's true then paying 3 bills to play it really sucks. you can't denie that. base on the video it's only on xbl. J/K
^i've already been with this guy since day one this game got released^
Sadly you will be a minority in boycotting the game. PC gamers said they would boycott MW2...MW2 outsold COD4's lifetime sales in the first week... boycotts never work, but it's still worth trying.
I'm not addicted to MW 2 but playing it once in a while is nice actually. Only major problem is I've never find a server with below 100 ping. If they add a subscription based system that prevents players from playing the game fully I'll just quit playing it and go buy BC 2.
i did not even get MW2 .. obviously i wont be getting this either.. hope u guys find the strength to keep yourself away from this game..
Mines going well, havent bought an Activision product since and Starcraft 2 (as much as I wanna support Blizzard) I'm just gonna buy a CD key so that Activision doesnt get a cent of my money.
Well No Buy For Me Than.
i'm with this guy too .. Hell i dont even boycott , i just dont care for most of their games
I'll probably buy used copy to play the single player and then return it the same day.
Shame to the people that will pay for this bullshit. If NO ONE buys a subscription, they will be forced to make it FREE, but after seeing MW2 $15 DLC become the best selling DLC on all platforms, I can't be surprised by this nonsense. -___-
what's the ? oh , activision want more money ? don't care they never got my money . shame on all the cod mw2 : dlc pack buyers
if you're a PS gamer and rather pay to play MW2 online (p2p severs w/ 16players online) than playing MAG (64-128players online); Resistance1,2&3 (40-60 players & 8player co-op) and Killzone2&3 (32plyers online, 2-4 co-op) for FREE with dedicated servers then there's no other way to put it... JO R STOOOOOPID! I did not include multiplat games like BFBC cause you already know if activision is successful with this, EA will DEFINITILY implement this pay structure to their online FPSs games too.
When they start charging, I'll start walking.
I'm joining the PoSTedUP bandwagon!
The play for online will not happen with black ops because they already started pre orders with no fixed terms or contracts. That is like selling a person a chicken online and telling him 3 months later he will have to pay $40.00 more. It is illegal.
I was going to boycott them, but the game released for like £25 so I bought it. I know I'm a bad person but the day previous 9/10 of my PSN friends where playing it and I just wanted to buy it. Will I buy the online subscription? No.
yh i got mw2 for 25 quid on ps3 from sainsburys I'd buy the new 1 if there was a similat deal but I won't pay full price and I wont pay a subscription either they can get stuffed
What will you do if 9/10 of your PSN friends will play the subscribed multiplayer? You will subscribe, because you follow the flock.
The last game from ACTI that I got was COD4. That tells you that I stopped supporting their games for a long time :)
You've gotta be kidding me? 0_o EDIT: Oh well, I wasn't thinking of buying Black Ops anyway. Halo: Reach is all I need ^_^
Hell yeah. Have you been keeping up with Bungies updates? 'Surfing on top of a falcon while holding the flag' the game is going to be insane. Can you say "Call of Duty Who?"
Haha! Indeed, I've been keeping up with their updates and Halo: Reach will truly be a spectacular game. Did you see the Hologram armour ability? And what did you say? Call of Duty Who?
will be the last CoD game i'll buy mostly for the single player since i only play online once in a blue moon. but i know one thing if i was into competitive online i would not like activision or these companies hold me up for more money just to play online.
Thank God for Halo and Killzone. :D This plus the fact Activision doesn't have a single game that interests me makes boycotting the company that much easier. Sadly, there will be plenty of suckers desperate enough to pay for the subscription.
$10/800 MSP a year is my guess. Hopefully it is only for MW2 and onward cause I was playing WaW last night and honestly enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
$10 a year? This is Activision we're talking about, it'll be $10 a month.
I hope Activision don't start charging even though MW2 was a huge letdown I still like playing the occasional match. EDIT: If Activision start charging I will never buy another game they Publish
How about if they start charging for online, Play the games you like from them offline, and dont pay for online?
Keep online free but have a subscription with added perks ( excuse the pun)
Paying more for what you already bought is borderline extortion. Maybe they'll add dedicated servers. That would be pretty sweet. Not for me of course, Not when other companies offer dedicated servers for free.
Why would they ever reintroduce dedicated servers, when a game without them sells like hot cake? Instead, what will happen is that other games will launch without them.
Doubt it - they can do that with DLC. What they want is an entrance fee to the most popular FPS online. Instant millions.
After charging for the piss poor "map packs", this is hardly a surprise.
Ready, The death of COD is upon us.
Over 10 million gamers play Modern Warfare 2 online every single week. And from no where this thing pops up? And it's just coincidently happened after the Activision subscription based discussion a few days ago. Sigh.
10m? no, don't think so. over 1m at a push - maybe - though.
Reloading? That'll cost ya. Health regeneration? One cent a second. And don't even get me started on how much the perks will set you back...
the 360 is goning to get Halo reach and after that in 6 months or so Gears of war 3. on the PS3 side they going to have SOCOM4 and after it KILLZONE3. and lets not forget that both consles will get MOH, so asking people to pay for playing MW2 or Black Ops will just push gamers to other shooters old ones amd new ones. Still I think there will be some kids willing to pay and that is the sad part.
Halo...is out COD is in( those old halo fans play Cod now)...and if this is true they will lose a lot of customers ....and screw Actovision they are becoming gaming tyrants....
What I really am afraid of is not that Activision give us subscription based multiplayer, but rather seing that people will still buy their game and also their subscription based multiplayer. If people start doing that, trust me, Activision will not the the only publisher and perhaps Black Ops will not be the only game.
"but rather seing that people will still buy their game and also their subscription based multiplayer." this has always worried me the most. If there were a doomsday scenario for me as a gamer. This would be it. I'd probably get into cars again and seeing as I now have the means to make it a hobby. It wouldn't be a complete loss. I just love pc's more.
my exact fear too, if they charge for it and get away with it I'm certain EA and THQ would jump on the bandwagon I'd have to quit gaming as it would cost far to much..
everything that has a beginning... has an end... RIP COD :p
My store alone has 200 reserves on it. This thing is going to sell like crack! It's going to suck...but it's going to sell. Lol. Treyarch sucks.
As soon as it becomes official that you'll have to pay to play online, those reserves will drop. And the life of COD will slowly flat-line. The CEO of Activision will lose his job.
I'm not so sure about that. We'll see.
If that happens, I'm out.
MOH KZ3 why would I pay to play COD. Feel sorry for 360 owners if they have to pay for MW3 and xbox live
If XBOX LIVE is as closed as Iwata, or whatever the Square Enix douche-face's name is, said, I doubt Microsoft would allow Activision to bring subscription-based gaming to the platform unless they are given a good chunk of the money pie.
There is no way in hell I would pay three times to play a game online. Its bad enough that I have to pay twice to play the Xbox games I have now. I am glad I still only have to pay once for my PS3 games. For now anyway. :(
Today is a sad day for gamers. However like many users before me I believe that if this took place many people will still buy into Activision's plan. When Modern Warfare 2 came out it broke all kinds of records with a $60.00 price tag, then they released two map pack at $15.00 per unit (with recycled COD 4 maps)and they sold like hot cakes. So if you do the math I would seem that if you truly want to enjoy the game it's going to cost you $90.00 and if the subscription model is to be believed............ well you get the point.
Onlene subcriptions are going to far in my honest opinion if they are trying to make up for lose look more into the piracy issue and sort that out. Don't hit the gamers that have been loyal from day one.
Make up for loss? That's funny. They don't want to make up for loss, they just want to make more money. You know, basically, like every other company on the planet.
Activision go FU(K yourself!
It's a fake or Activision is leaking some test images to gage opinion. There is no way people would pay to play a broken game online. The networking is so poor on the game its hard to charge anything for it. I can say if they do announce it I can safely get a good sale price on my copy of the game and probably save by cancelling my BlackOps because they would probably try it too.
People are just sad.. I guarentee nobodys gonna buy online subscription for call of duty. IMO i wouldnt cause for me it gets boring after a few months so that'd just be a waste of money. But people that love the cod franchise would probably be willing to buy it. But if this happens everyone will just get medal of honor, Outsell Cod in everyway possible, then show activition the mistake they made. Only time will tell what'll happen.
I had to much BS from Activision already. I feel sorry for Treyarch but MW2 is gonna be the last CoD game I will buy. I'm just gonna chill out with Halo: Reach, Crysis 2 and MoH.
Good thing I got tired of COD mp 2 weeks after buy MW2. After playing BFBC2 I can't go back to COD ever.
I dont play it anymore and its free now...lol, no way would I pay to play it
done correctly, it could be effective for both activision and gamers. i doubt they will do it correctly though.
Looks Like Today Is The Day I Say Goodbye To COD =D
although i want a tonne of shit fixed before i would even think of paying to play it, it does have one big benefit.. and that would the removal of ALOT of these nooby camping players that have suddenly plagued the COD franchise.. of course not all of them, but fact is most of them are all these little 13 year olds who do nothing but boost & camp.. and its not likely that they will have the money to keep playing it.. so yeh.. + less noobs - a shit load of problems they need to fix before its even considered
Call in tactical Nuke = House Mortgage
OK BF3 already wins..
I hate cod and everyone thats addicted to it i hope they make a subsscription for it. That will mean more uncharted multi player
It was hard at first, not getting MW2, but if I did get it I would have been really pissed off at this. I somewhat actually want Activision to do this since the people who would have gotten it if there weren't subs would start to get other games and not devout their lives only to CoD.
