With DICE and Crytek going free-to-play with Battlefield Play4Free and Warface, Play questions whether the FPS king Call Of Duty might be next to follow.
I'd rather it go subscription... no really, hear me out. We pay $60 for Black Ops, it's mediocore singleplayer is for the most part a waste of time... no instead imagine buying a Call of Duty sub, $5 a month and every year or so, a MASSIVE update comes out with the new weapons, maps, game modes and add-ons. Why is this good? Well it's not costing you the player much more AND it'll force Activision into releasing more patches, even a steamworks style, instant update would be fine.
lmao...isnt that basically what happens now? pay $5 a month for a year and that equals $60 (the price of a new game) every year or so a massive update/patch/expansion with new weapons, maps, game modes and add-ons (release a new game every year) there you have it, activision made cod go subscription based, well its close enough lmao
you forgot the 15$ map packs :P
knowing Kotick, that will be...NEVER EVER!
COD free? Can we start a Hahahhaahahaahaahaaa Thread? I can't seeing that happen until the devil kotick is removed from his throne.
Why would kotick have to be removed? O.o EDIT: You need a reason to do something. Removing kotick is an action, so it requires a reason behind it. I don't see why kotick will have to be removed to have a Free-to-play CoD game. F2P games aren't exactly a charity. =x
Bobby supports selling ingame cutscenes as expensive DVDs therefore rove his ass
Isn't COD already free??
activision wont allow it
It could go "pay me to play it" and I still wouldn't play it. But there is no way they will make COD F2P. Whilst theoretically they could make more money in the long term it doesn't change the fact in the short term COD is a blockbuster and most publishers like Activision can't see futher ahead than next month in terms of revenue these days.
This is like saying: "Could WoW go free-to-play?". Waste of an article.
There actually is lots of speculation in the MMO world about that...Even Blizzard has said its possible in the future.
BAHAHAHAH!!! Surely you can't be serious! "I'm Serious... And Don't call me shirley" - Rip Les. Back to the topic...you SURELY cant be serious.
let the bobby kotick slander begin....
No but I do see them charging $60 AND $5 per month.
Could Call Of Duty go free-to-play? It could but our wallets would be raped by DLC. Helmet $5.00 Boots $5.00 Knife $10.00 Hand gun $15.00 Machine gun $25.00 Bullets $50.00 (per clip)
I just want to see a conclusion to the modern warfare trilogy and im done with call of duty.
LOL, he thinks its a trilogy. Surely there's more milk in it than that.
The only way I could see it happening is if enough people leave Call of Duty and go to BF: Play4Free and Warface. If enough people don't buy the game and Xbox Live and PSN activity drops significantly then it is possible. But I do not see that happening.
No, then it will be like BFH where pretty much everything cost $. I want one pay that gives me a lot not have to buy individual stuff.
The only reason why I got Black ops is because everybody on my friends list was playing it. Thats why cod4 became so popular, it's on line meant people played the game longer, meaning more people saw the game being played and brought it themselves. If activision makes online to pay in any way, they would destroy the link and there games would sell like crap.
wait.....what? im already playing COD for free?
Unless you paid £54.99 for the game.
Year 3000.CoD 997.Sales in trillions.Bobby kotick the 60th is CEO.Even then it will not go free to play.
Never,Kotick will never let his golden egg laying goose go for free.
