"Although the launch of the Call of Duty Elite service has not gone quite as well as many had hoped, this has not slowed the number of subscriptions that have been coming in."
:O....Activision is getting paid. Man, they must have made atleast 2 billion just off of the MW3 game now. Plus with DLC coming. *bows to Activision and the CoD hold*
And not one of them work.
Unless they plan on buying the DLC, then this is actually a 'clever' option. Although I don't really see spending your own money on something you want idiotic. It's $50 a year, hardly breaking the bank if it's something you enjoy. But clearly, your more super awesome than them so well done for that.
I disagree. Im a Battlefield 3 fan. My head just exploded.
"Although I don't really see spending your own money on something you want idiotic. It's $50 a year, hardly breaking the bank if it's something you enjoy. " Which again, paves the way AGAIN for companies to try things. I don't call it idiotic, but people really need to question companies for doing things like this. That's one of the main reasons why online passes are so prevalent today, along side of the reason why games are $60 now. No one questioned it, yet people don't realize WHY they are doing this when they do. Hell the service isn't even functional, but people dropped $50 into it.
600,000 People making it acceptable. This just irks me.
didnt you get elite with one of the editions of MW3? and anyway, 600 000 out of probably 12-13 million day one sales isnt really that impressive.
6.75 million day one sales. Yes, it is about 10% that purchased another feature than the game itself, in one week. That is quite impressive.
What i want to know is if you stop paying your Sub do you loose your DLC? If you do this is a huge rip off.
@awi5951: That was covered by Fourzerotwo in a Q&A. If you pay the $50 for a yers subscribtion, you will receive everything that is released in that year. If you stop the subscription, you will keep everything you received already.
mine was free...so far :(
Really? 600,000? For a service that has generated just under £21m it really is shoddy. I've posted it before and I'll post it again: (warning, contains excessive ranting) I'm outraged it was even broken in the first place. Surely they must have seen huge numbers of users coming online at launch, simply by looking at sales for the call of duty games. For something 600,000 people have payed for, as in another game price, that's a shade under £21m generated soly from elite. For gods sake Activision, stop being such tight asses and actually hire people who know what they're doing and buy a good number of servers. Until Activision actually spend some of the cash they're sitting on to make a decent game with working online features and networking they don't deserve to be considered a decent company. Customer service comes after money for them and that is what I find to be really sad. Apologies for my rant but it really is ridiculous that over a week after release a service people have spent £21 on is still not functional, not to mention the lack of phone apps as a result.
Yet you will still buy the next COD hoping for something better? lol They'll make even more money, even if they sell a turd in a box.
it's money well spend and HOURS of fun
