Call of Duty Elite Service Priced At $49.99 Per Year

Activision's new Elite subscription service for Call of Duty will be available for $49.99 a year, or about $4.15 a month, when it launches alongside the highly-anticipated Modern Warfare 3.

Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg made the announcement at a Gamasutra attended press-only preview for Activision's Call Of Duty XP fan event, going on in LA this weekend. The company has gone to some effort for the festivities, creating an enormous compound that recreates Modern Warfare 2's The Pit and Scrapyard maps for real paintball tournaments. (Activision, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

What I don't understand is why are they selling a game for $65 bucks then this for $50 bucks when a year from now Treyarch is gonna have another COD out thus making this whole investment nothing but water down the drain? Screw COD Elite, Screw IW, and screw buying games new. Most of all, screw all the shareholders at activision, they are nothing but swine.

Again charging for something that should be free i think they did this instead off having a subscribtion to play cod online because the public out cry would be huge and could hurt cod sales and we all know Activision love nothing more than money our money that is !!!

50 dollars a year for stat tracking which is a service that dice offers for free with Battlefield 3.

No thanks

Why is this 50 bucks? Oh that's right, because Activision likes to screw the gamers.

Now, corrext me if I'm worng, but isn't Elite just a deeper stat tracking service? HTF COULD THAT EQUATE TO $50 A YEAR?! This MUST be false...

I'm pretty sure the 50 dollars is if you want to join competitions and stuff like that.
