Screeshots of buying Call of Duty Elite Membership from the Xbox360 dashboard
Same as the PSN version then.
Either way its Activision's shaft. The people who buy it have a worthy brain that is unused.
That's pretty ignorant to say. COD Elite is basically a "season pass". Do you complain about those as well? Elite is perfect for the people that would be buying all the DLC anyway. Nobody is forcing you or anyone to get it, hell COD games don't even have a "online pass" like Sony's games are starting to have and all of EA's games have, including Battlefield 3. EA even tries to milk people with their "season pass" for sports games, but you probably don't complain about that either. This place needs to stop being so hypocritical.
I do they should put this in the trash along with the seaon pass. I have to pay to buy the DLC thye can go fuck their self
You'd be surprised. I actually saw it yesterday while I was browsing the PS Store. It's the same price, and people already rated it (meaning they already purchased it). If I were someone looking for something to buy, my opinion is spend money on the single player campaign of Crysis - much better game. Elite is just too overpriced, and if you are on Xbox live, the total will cost you even more. Amazing how similar services can be found elsewhere but costing nothing at all. (A combination of Steam and Battlelog do just as well as Xbox Live and Elite, but they won't cost you $110 per year to use.)
I like the fact that the premium membership allows you to obtain all the DLC for free, but in my opinion the map packs should be free.
im sure the conversion method ms will use for Europe is non existent they are going to charge 49.99 pounds
I hate that. But at least you can buy the same amount of MS points required to buy the Elite membership cheaper (maybe even cheaper than the US codes if you're lucky).
True...but every time they fail to undetstand that $299.99 is not the same as 299.99 euros or pounds. Plug in Microsoft's (really unnecessary) point system, and stuff ends up costing more than it should.
As I said before, the points system might be confusing but in the end, it lets us European users buy content without spending too much money. Look at PSN for instance. Resident Evil 4 HD is 20 dollars in US store while it's 15 pounds in UK/Some European stores which is complete and utter bullshit. As a person living in Europe, I'm sick of paying 3-4 dollars more for a 20 dollar content when I can buy the same game on Xbox Live for 1600 MS points. And I don't have to buy those points from the Microsoft's official stores either. I can easily find trustworthy people on eBay that sells a 1600 prepaid card for much less than what Microsoft is selling. This is why I like the points system while some people hate it. Instead of paying 3-4 dollars more for the same content, I'm buying it for the same or even cheaper.
Each map pack costs around a tenner so it's just a case of how many map packs they're planning to bring out. If they bring out four like Black Ops then it might be worth it.
Makes sense. I would advise those interested to buy the Hardened Edition to save 10 bucks.
Lol I'm going to say what a joke.The fact that your going to get a game that's hacked ,glitched and just plain broken day one and then you go and pay for something that should be free, you have to be out of your mind.I pay enough money on the xbox And I just can't justify spending more money on something that's just not worth it.I will stick with my PSN and BF3 which has free content and the fact battlefield battlelog is way more advanced then elite and free just makes my decision an easy one.Don't get me wrong I'm not dissing anyone who gets it I'm just seeing way more cons the pros on this one.
Come on I know that everyone here hates on cod, but COD elite is very good service that allows you to have FREE DLC across the year for 49$!! Yep, free dlc are pretty rare this gen.
lol do you even listen to yourself ? Yay free dlc ... at the price of a game ... Liking the game is fine , and well at least part of the service is free , but come on ...
Is not free if you pay $50 for them you know.
I find it moronic how you spend 80% of your post bashing CoD Elite just to say I'm not dissing anyone just seeing the pros and cons. Actually you aren't. You are blindly bashing CoD Elite(which is free). Your blind hatred for CoD and Elite is actually quite funny. Have fun on BF3, maybe I'll see you up their because unlike the blind gamers I will buy both.
How is that bashing elite?pointing out the obvious isn't bashing it's making a valid point that $50 is way over priced.Just curious are you that blind?free???? Hello it's $50 so when you decide to make a comment think about what you are saying first.When I last checked I was going to buy mwf3 myself but since you make the obvious blind gamers mistake I was commenting on the services not the game besides the glitches which is a given.Thanks for coming out though I appreciate your efforts on proving nothing more then how much of a narrow minded person you can be.
Too bad that i'll be purchasing BF3............ Oh well :)
Good for you bro, hope you have fun.
and I will buy neither because they both suck and are not even good FPS. Yay a multiplayer shooter where we use the same guns we have used in 35 other games over the last 5 years to shoot the same looking soldiers with the same controls and play with the same little annoying kids. Why argue about battlefeild 3 and COD whatever? They are both bland, played out, and average FPS games now. Anyone arguing about one being better than the other, or talking one up and putting the other down is a hypocrite as they are both so similar: bland and uninspired crap, and neither one is a good FPS. Just over-hyped multiplayer garbage that little kids who are relatively new to gaming can play and babysit each other. So please, next time you want to argue about witch unoriginal, boring, bland and average multiplayer military FPS is better, realize that anyone who thinks either is something special is loosing and neither one is really anything good at all. IMO of course, dont get mad if I think these FPS suck balls and FPS are my favorite type of game.
Is it a yearly sub or 1 off payment
Do you know if you can still use the DLC that you have downloaded if you let your Elite subscription end? Maybe its better off buying the DLC, if thats all you want, and not the Elite service.
So microsoft wants us to pay 50 bucks for live, and activision wants 50 more for this garbage? Wow, p.t. barnum was right, there is a sucker born every minute. Glad I'm not one of them. If you are going to purchase this crap, you're part of the problem.. good luck to you.
Yearly will not be a problem since a new Call Of Duty Game comes out every year & they will more then likely include a Elite Subscription in one of the versions of the next game
I did not buy COD last year and with Skyrim and so many other great games comming out i wont be buying COD this year. Activision have ruined a great franchise and i feel sorry for thoose addicted to the crap
I'm not sure if Call of Duty Elite is free, but seeing that if you want the "free" maps throughout the year then it's not free. You certainly have to pay $50 for the service or pay $100 for the hardened version of the game.
I can see it being scrapped, if many don't go ahead and purchase this. However, if this even gets 1 million purchases itself, then... yes, it will be a really huge sign to other publishers.
given how a few are already trying to rationalize such lunacy , it's sure to be a success . PS : The next one to say "yo dont have to get it if you dont like ..." will get slapped . Your acceptance shapes what becomes mainstream and the default setting in future games , once your numbers are high enough . So no guys that accept this are forcing our hands too , eventually . just like it happened with dlcs .
BANG! With authority man...Everything this person just said is the absolute truth and you addicted COD fans are too blinded by your impulsive need to get a chopper gunner to see that. We will be paying a 50 dollar membership on top of the game next gen for every popular franchise with multiplayer just like MMO games...congrats guys on buying into COD elite...
Money grabbing bastards, PS3 players will think this is a new amazing idea but really its the same as bungie.net for halo which has been going for years...
Can someone tell me please why is it that when i buy a 19.99 ms points card of 1400 i cant buy 2 games that are supposedly 9.99? cause i think it goes like this 800 points equals to 9.99 right? well yes because when you try to buy a game that is 19.99 from the marketplace you can change the payment to points and it always 1380 the difference being 20 points.....so according to microsoft's logics: you spend 20 dollars in a point card but you can only buy 15 dollars worth of games if it is more than one game... anyone can tell me what am i understanding wrong?
