Activision confirmed during its Q1 2011 financial call last night that its new Call of Duty game will be revealed in a few weeks time, however one detail which slipped out is that it’ll include premium online features....
If this is true...then who the hell do activision think they are? Money grabbing bastards. I hope this finally makes people realise they are only in it for the money and dont really care about the quality of the game.
well well well, what a suprise /s
Looks like I'm not buying this game then. Actually I was already planning on not buying it seeing how BF3 is coming out at the same time, but this just further validates my choice
and if it happens i will boycott activision games period . we make them all this money and they repay by. saying up yours if u want the good stuff buy it .
Well if that's true they just lost my money as well as numerous other people I game with.
"who the hell do activision think they are? " Seen the map pack sells figures? ppl are crazy enough to buy over price dlc, they will pay for premium features, if these online features include special perks,guns or armor/camo then the game might be unbalance(if not already unbalance).
You know, this could actually translate to a HIGHER quality title over time, with support financially pushing the title to expand faster and more often, including more weapons, vehicles, environments, etc.. If you love a title as the fans clearly do, they might be willing to shell out more cash to pick up more content faster.
I wouldn't argue that. But when you say higher quality you should think polished gameplay aka very few gltiches, exploits, bugs, balance. gameplay wise CoD has peaked. Even with new maps monthly or game modes it's still the same tired old CoD. You can't add to it ingame as its already maxing out 360 systems and we all know Kotick sells to the lowest common denominator.
It finally happened! Call of Duty is pay-to-play now! FFFFFFUUU....oh wait.... ...Battlefield 3 is still free!
I hope this is true so people wont buy it and activision might stop milking it...But i know that aint gonna happen call of duty will sell millions no matter what FML -.-
AK47 early unlock- $1.99 Gold camo- $2.99 Pro versions of all perks-$9.99 Taking advantage of idiots-priceless
I can actually see that happening...
If they had any chance of selling this, they would have to drop the price of the full game by a great amount as they already charge well over the normall asking price for the game already.
thank god for Battlefield. guess activision wants to lose out to the competition after all.
As long as they are not charging for the base online play this game won't take a hit at all for sales, which from the sound of this they are not. Still one can hope.
That is one of the reasons why I think I'll choose BF3 over any other call of duty games.
Well I WAS excited for Modern Warfare 3, but looks like I'm shifting over to Battlefield 3. I NEED a quality FPS this year.
The fact that they are charging for something, is cause for concern. They make enough money as it is. Now they just want to rope everyone into another thing. Which if works out well, I'm sure EA/others will want some cake. Well, its Bobby after all, not too surprising. (I hope not)
Why would you be exited about MW3? It's going to be the same as any other cod game. Battlefield is where its at.
I remember when everyone said they weren't going to buy MW2. It broke records. Then, everyone said they weren't going to buy Black Ops. It broke the MW2 records. This will work because sheep will be sheep.
What next? A Call of Duty operating system perhaps?
Call of Duty porn! Flash bang grenade up the butt.
Okay first COD suckers make sure you disagree like you always do. Just a few questions........ Why would you support a company who never innovates? Why support company who is %100 greed? Killzone> Halo> battlefield> Shit on COD
I think it should be noted that it is EA's direction to have you purchase a pass to play titles online in EXISTING online racing titles, and the Mortal Kombat title released by NetherRealm Studios requires that you have an online pass as well - so if you were to pick it up used, you would have to pay a premium to fight people online.
Keyword there, buddy.. is USED. The online pass is included at no extra charge if you buy the game NEW, which is how a company like EA makes money.. money that supports not just EA, but the game's developers, which keeps them in business to continue making bigger and better games for us to play. I fully support the idea of the online pass in this way.
I purchased the title "Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit." I received a two day free pass to race online. Nothing further.
@JoelsMad I also purchased Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, redeemed the code that came with my NEW copy of the game and have enjoyed online racing ever since.
this is good premium options for core CoD gamers is like PS Plus for core PS3 gamers -both are optional -offer extra content is a win win
yeah haters always gonna hate but their always interested in next CoD game just like you.
A CoD Plus for those who want more extra features. If those features are actually relevant that make them actually necessary to get the right experience its simply a money grabber but if those features dont do really nothing new then its a complete rip-off and its gonna fail. Activision is smart and knows that consumers dont want to be ripped off.As long there´s people interested on playing the game the thing they want is attract those people even more. This next CoD must be really good to have such a system but if not CoD is gonna lose interest from gamers.
Fucking greedy cunt... bad enough gamers pay for xboxlive. when will people learn to stop supporting their crap? "sigh". i'm a strong advocate for free multiplayer for xboxsilver memberships. now this asshole wants to bring in a paid so called premium service that i can get free from competing developers and platforms. well you can count me out. Shame on those who support them, dont be suprised other publishers will follow suit when this game sells billions. you have been warned. its time to stepup and fight to make xboxsilver free (multiplayer) and psn remain so.
Skip... im not paying for premium features,screw acti ..weres anonymous when you need them they can hack ps3 for stupid reasons but let activsion screw us all over lol ..damn it i miss psn :/ ..def skipping this crap BF3 is were it's at.
What's new!!! look guys, don't you see what's going? we are the ones inspiring activision or every other publisher to do this, they are not blind or stupid, we are the blind ones, the only way they will stop doing this, is if we say enough is enough and stop buying everything they want us to buy, ex; dlc's, map packs, costumes, COSTUMES!! come on!!, will you stop doing something if it's benefiting you.
i think the costumes should be included with the Maps DLC, not sold by itself is just lame
This is another reason to why I believe that many will switch to BattleField 3.
The COD sheep will still flock to this in hordes, sadly.
This is actually a pretty ballzy move on Activision's part considering EA has vowed to push Battlefield 3 hard with advertising. But whatever. I don't play COD multiplayer, but if I was into that game, I think the question I would be asking is.. Will this premium content give a gamer an ADVANTAGE over standard gamers? Because if it does - that's a major fail in my eyes.
God just can't wait for bf3 and skyrim I don't need mw3
When are people going to abandon this frekn' game already? Activision must be giving free reach arounds with a hint of crack in between to attract the blind consumers
lol! COD is a joke.
Premium service should be lag free and top notch connections at least. Thanks Activision for givin me more reason no to buy you're next stupid cod game.
