Upon Modern warfare 3′s launch today millions of people are already playing online and Activision has reported on its Elite status page that the server is having problems due to many people trying to subscribe to elite service simultaneously.
It is ironic because the link to read the story goes 404...
So for Xbox owners you pay MS to play online and then pay Activision for some more enhanced online stuff. Something is deeply wrong here. You all need to stop feeding these guys your money, a day will come when you have to pay Activision just to play the game online if you keep this up...
You're paying $50 (or $40 if you go Hardened)for early access to $60 worth of DLC, and for someone who would be buying it all anyway its a deal. Anyone who thinks the "enhanced online stuff" is the big draw for the service is going about it the wrong way. And yes, you pay for Xbox Live, but the good news is you don't have to pay for an ID Protection service.
"the good news is you don't have to pay for an ID Protection service." No one that signed up for the free one from Sony had to pay for one.
Well yeah, it was free. For a year. Then you need to pay $9.95 a month. But thats it.
early access? by buying it on the 360 maybe.... all this elite deal is going to do is let them offer you Juggernaut mode from the private matches, maybe 3rd person view, and then a few dlc map packs and a handful of guns. It said 20 pieces total in 9 months and then the launch of a new COD game. heres how its going to hit, shoot me if I am wrong....... 3 map packs with 5 maps=15 juggernaut mode/3rd person=2 Guns=3 (find a few that were left out) 20 pieces well worth the price of a whole new game???????
You don't have to pay for Elite. Most people will be happy just downloading the app and using the free service. You know, scratch that. Most people won't even bother downloading Elite.
