Why does this article keep referring to Online as free? It wasn't free I paid £45 for my copy of Call of Duty. That was for SP/MP/Co-op. I wouldn't buy the game if it dind thave MP, so the majority I paid was for MP.

If they want to start charging me a monthly subscription for somethign I've already paid for they can kiss my ass goodbye.

There are plently of developers/publishers out there who are willing to offer MP as a component piece to the game they release for no extra cost.

I hope to god if they do start a subscription service that everyone has the sense to say "No" and not sign up! If we vote with our feet and stop buying Call of Duty they will have to revert to not using a subscription service.
