Velocity Gamer: Activision finally released all the details of whats in store for those who purchase a subscription for Call of Duty Elite. But is it really worth your $50? We take a deeper look into whats being offered.
i can't believe anyone Disagree with that. i mean who want to pay 110$ for one game! i mean half the price of Xbox 360 and PS3
For some, that game is the only reason they own a console. I feel sorry for those people..
If you always buy every single DLC for every COD then sure it's a great deal. I however haven't bought a DLC since WaW so it would not be worth me paying for. Also i'm buying BF3 over MW3 trollface.jpg
Yeah, if you buy the DLC it actually works out cheaper if you have elite.
I hadn't though about it but after reading the article the author is right. You can find most of the stuff their offering for free elsewhere. I almost feel like they're copying most of what gamebattles offers and trying to charge people for it.
There's that and just think about it. PS Plus or XBL subscribers will be paying over $100 a year on just subscription fees. Unless your one of those people that are lucky enough to find good deals on those.
Another uninformed person who thinks PS+ if something you need to play online. PS+ shouldn't even be mentioned in this conversation.
Yeah, PS+ isn't needed to play online. So, that's a bad example. Edit; but what we're saying is that the cost of playstation plus is completely optional and shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as call of duty elite because it's up to whoever buys it to get it. Just like call of duty elite. You don't need it. Why should a game company be any different? Coca cola continue to put up the prices of their bottles of cola whether people want to buy sweets or not.
I know you don't need it. I'm just saying for those who DO have PS Plus.
@Kee Actually, Elite and PS+ are exactly in the same vein - optional content for an additional fee. Maybe you meant to say LIVE?
Well. Not if you consider that most of the stuff offered used to be free. I wrote this article about it... http://jordanemery.com/gami... Then, I'm sure you won't consider it worth $50 either.
@Jordanemery You are severely misinformed. Everything that was always free with COD is still free with Elite - nothing has been taken away. In fact, many features have been added to the free portion of Elite that haven't been available before. I'm not sure where you are going with this?
@creatchee I found this link... http://www.callofduty.com/e... which helped clear a few things up.
I rather buy more games.
If you plan on buying all the DLC for mw3 then yes it's worth it. It offers enough bells and whistles to make it an appealing buy for die hard cod players. If you don't plan on getting the DLC or not sure, then no it really isn't.
Hopefully CoD elite dies so other developers won't try and do this kind of bullsh*t!
what if some of the dlc is not free, what if they say oh will give them a discount then charge for the dlc
Is it worth it? No..........Activision is banking on the same people who lap up the overpriced map packs to purchase the Elite option
People do know they're not required to purchase it right? You can still buy the Standard Ed. of the game, and play the 16 MP maps it comes with. We all know there's going to be DLC for this game at $15 a pack. If your intending to purchase them all then you'll make a small marginal saving by going Elite. I'll see what BF3 is like for the 2 weeks prior to MW3 before even thinking of buying MW3 as to me I haven't seen much that's new and looking back on MW2 I didn't enjoy it so much.
Serious question? Really?
lol what people don't get is, if you buy all the dlc you will end up paying the exact same amount that the elite costs. Or are the elite members getting a map pack each month?
COD isn't worth the $50 price tag, Recycled game year after year
Can't belive that people let activision rape them with their ugly horse dick! Game 60$, DLC every second month 14$/pack, cod elite fee 50$ and XBL fee for 360 gamers! + they are buying the same piece of crap every year. CoD4 was the highlight of the franchise and everything after cod 4 is recycled shit.
For me, no. For many others it is, it's their choice, move along.
As much as I don't really like CoD, this is a good deal. It all just depends on what type of player you are. If you only play campaign then this is garbage for you. But if you download every DLC pack it will honestly save you money.
$50? Be smart, order the hardened edition and get it for only $40 :)
"COD isn't worth the $50 price tag, Recycled game year after year" rofl @ all the CoD haters. They sure spend all day on the internet bashing CoD with recycled comments article after article. Anyway, CoD Elite should be beneficial for CoD gamers that buy every map pack. This is entirely optional and doesn't hinder your experience on CoD if you choose not to subscribe.
This is a bad idea overall..for gamers.it will start s trend
Instead of looking at Elite as a service unto itself, treat Elite like a so-called season pass for DLC. COD fans that buy every piece of DLC can expect to pay $60 a year on it a la carte. With Elite, you get ALL of the DLC for $50 (or $40 if you get the Hardened Edition) AND you get the bonus features of the paid Elite membership. It's actually a great value for people who buy all of the DLC if you compare it to the current model that Activision goes by.
I would definitely agree with you here!
no and neither is the shitty game.
