sounds like there taking a leap out of sony's book COD+? ;) LOL
not sure i like where this is going. everything seems to cost more nowadays - ea have some stupid stuff to buy in their games, especially for fifa and madden. why cant i just pay my money for the game and play the whole thing?
This is true thats why i still love the wii it still has cheat codes and real unlocks unlike the ps3/xbox/pc
i want cheat codes back. good times
MW2 really turned me off to COD. The game has turned into an FPS in which no one uses RIFLES! GL's, RPG's, Shotguns, Akimbo + Marathon + Lightweight, etc. etc. MW2 has become more annoying than anything else. If they charge for online there is no way I'm buying Black Ops. I'll Gamefly it for the single player campaign and be done. Medal of Honor is looking better and better. Maybe its time to say goodbye to COD.
I'm quite tired of Activision. They pay more attention to DLC's for their games than patches to major bugs and glitches. I also find their servers too laggy!
"looking to increase revenue making opportunities with the Call of Duty franchise by giving gamers ‘more choice'." More choice huh? Then it's quite simple. I choose NOT to buy any Activision related products, DLCs, etc. On a final note, there's a common saying that even the ugliest person in the world isn't bad to look at as long as they smile. Bobby Kotick is the single exception to this rule. Regardless of his pedophile smile, he's one ugly SOB.
lets hope they dont plan on including game 'boosters' that give an advantage to people who plan on paying extra
They will, this way it'll force anyone who wants to enjoy the experience to give Activision more of their money. The only activision game I have bought this gen was MW and that is it. After the crap that was MW2 I gave up on them, good game, but it should have only cost $30 based on the online play only, basically, I fail to see how a 5 hour campaign counts as a single player experience.
Hell, imagine if you had to *buy* prestige and extra ranks...
people already buy prestige. i'm always getting messages from anooying little kids asking if i want to buy prestige for 1200ms points
How do they sell it to you? Isn't a username connected to a live account or whatever?
Wow. Now I've officially heard everything. And if this WASN'T a scam and people actually WENT for it instead of noob tubing and quick scoping their way through another 70 ranks...
dunno how they actually do it, never tajen up the offer. i think maybe they either hack the game over live (like you see those people with the bizarre gamertags with the xbox buttons) or they sell you the login info to their actual gamertag. might be an interesting experiment to find out...
here you go, this guy will do it for you on xbox: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Yeah, as long as you basically can't buy 'cheats' or 'boosts' that others who choose not to pay extra don't get, then I don't have a problem. If its things like maps and cosmetic mods then I say let them go for it.
go ahead... start charging and you will see how many wont buy or play your game all you window and door campers....we will see how much you love this game when you have to start paying to play pay to play a game which is full of campers..... camp, shoot, move, camp, shoot, move.... boring
This game is already on my blacklist, which sucks since I'm always looking for new FPS to play. I won't buy Activision/Blizzard games any more though.
COD followers are so blind, that they would easily sell their next of kin just to play the next UBER awesum COD game that has sooo many improvements over its predecessors (sarcasm...) It is really sad how stupid some people are...and they deserve to be robbed not once a year, but once a month for being such idiots... Now go and masturbate thinking how awesome Black Ops will be compared to MW1, MW2 and so on...
wat fps are better?
I personally think KZ3, Reach, and MAG are more fun and offer less " I want to stick a fork in my eye because of these GD campers" moments. MW2 was built for campers. Thats what made it far less fun than it's counterparts.
halo reach , mag and killzone for starters , in a rather long list . Let's not pretend many cod junkies even bother checking out the concurrence .
I HATED MW2. But black Ops does look more promising. Killstreak rewards don't count towards killstreak, wager matches, gun games. I can't control how bad other players make it, which will inevitably happen, but as far as content goes, Black Ops looks good.
They'll consider anything that would give them extra profit.
Has a subscription base for a FPS will flop, it will flop, because FPS do not bring the variety that a traditional fantasy MMO does. Now what it seems like this this is that ActiBliz is talking micro transactions, that would work in the long run, except for all the people in the world that realize what a massive ripoff it would be.
I really hope they do start charging so people would stop playing COD.
