PS3 Elite Members Will Get DLC “Shortly After” 360, Elite Maps to Have Separate Playlists

MP1st - Call of Duty Elite subscription, coupled with Microsoft’s deal with Activision for one month DLC head start for 360 owner, has over-complicated Modern Warfare 3′s DLC schedule for PS3 and PC players. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, PS3, Tag Invalid, Xbox 360)

360 owners are more Elite. Sorry.

Eliter Elite?

I'm hoping that's not his actual opinion and just a sarcastic portrayal of Activision's opinion.
Neko_Mega  +   1296d ago
Yes at crying about how they got killed -_-

PC users are more elite, next would be PS3 users then at the bottom is 360 (No clue where Wii is).

I wonder how hard is it to just give us a date?

pc users are more elite nerds

Why all the disagrees? There is an Elite version of the Xbox 360 so what you said is technically true.
Biggest  +   1296d ago
But if the elite version of one is only as good as the normal version of others, is it still elite? I would say technically no.

Surely PS3 players should have to pay a tad less than full price for elite then.
It says "Buy a premium membership and get DLC before everyone else". Last time I checked "Before everyone else" meant exactly what it says.

Just looked at the CoD:Elite site, and under features this is what it says.

Be on the front lines to test new Call of Duty(r) ELITE features

I looked on GameStop and Amazon.com for the elite memberships and still don't see where they said you get DLC before everyone else.

This isn't to say I agree with their methods, but they aren't saying you get it the same time as all other ELITE members.

Apologies, it was a quote from Mr. bowling a while back during an interview.

He stated that a premium membership would result in getting your hands on new DLC first. Which isn't the case all around apparently.

Surprising? No. BS to entice consumers? Of course.

Why anyone is shocked that Activsion pull these things, is beyond me..

To those of you complaining about paying for Elite but having to wait for DLC (PS3 users in particular).

Did you not get the memo when Activision and Microsoft signed a deal to bring DLC to Xbox LIVE before any other online service? This has been happening since MW2. If it has taken you 3 years to hear about it, blame yourself, not anybody else.
Silly gameAr  +   1296d ago
It blows my mind how people expect PS3 gamers to accept this. Elite should have been a 360 exclusive service, or they should have waited until their little deal with MS was up before having PS3 owners pay for Elite in the first place.

Yeah, I guess people should blame themselves for playing the game on their console of choice instead of the companies who make shady deals like this.
KontryBoy706  +   1295d ago
I'm a PS3 player but have an Xbox. PS3 fans should have known better than buying elite for PS3. You're bound to get the short end of the stick every time when it comes to COD. I mean come on their signture color is.... GREEN. Who else signature is green? Xbox. When have you even seen a PS3 logo on a COD ad? Heard of activision even showing PS3 gameplay? Xbox gets DLC first every year. it's clear what system they side with. Only reason COD is not a 360 exclusive is because of sales. It's ridiculous how little they support the PS3.

Still failing to understand this whole deal where apparently ps3 was the wrong choice because of a week or two period between releases of dlc????? Why do people act like the only reason to pay for elite was to get the dlc first???

Ummmm there are many more services and features outside of getting dlc and before others on the same system, who the heck is gonna change systems and find new friends for 1 game and all because of a small delay between dlc release dates??? Honestly I still feel most people (and mostly cod haters) really have no clue exactly what elite is and offers. Why don't people check the site or find out for themselves before going around and claiming "ps3 players should have known betterer", "they shouldn't except this", "you're all sheep that just flock to cod", etc.... whatever stupid assinine comment you want to make.... if you bought into elite just for dlc and early access to it I feel sorry for you because it has so much more to offer and anyone who is half serious about the game can greatly enhance their experiance and play for a purpose outside of just plain ol pub matches.

@iMpuTed - yeah you are so lucky to be such a simple minded d bag because you didn't spend $40 extra for a special edition which had extra cod series collectables and an elite premium pass that reg costs $50. Wish I was smart enough to brag about not saving $10 or getting essentially free collectables and then claiming how lucky I am that I have elite free which is only the basic version everyone can get and grants you no additional perks or offerings like paid premium service... you're exactly the type I am talking about in most cases, you know nothing yet still feel an extreme urge to share your worthless opinion/commentary...

Ummm first of all I didn't buy COD Elite for either system. Why should I care about Elite when Battlefield/Battlelog offers just as much, to a certain extent, for free with a map pack and new weapons? COD Black Ops, Halo 4 and Killzone 3 had features included on the disc. Some with their own websites for tracking your stats and your friends.

No matter what you say it is unfair to PS3/PC players to recieve anything later for a service they paid for; the same price you paid. So if we both pay for cable with the same provider but different box, should you be able to see the news before me? Or should I see shows aired a few days after you?

From the site "Take your Call of Duty experience to an all new level in competitions that offer a variety of unique ways to play, including special in-game playlists in MW3". Counter Strike, Half Life, Uncharted 2-3, Halo, Gears of War, Unreal Tournament etc all have done this for FREE. With in game playlists that change from time to time. Uncharted even had holiday themed playlist. Special competivite playlists too. As far as winning prizes for contests there are PLENTY of organizations that do this already. Soon it will become a standard to pay for things like this. Thanks to Activision and COD, developers and publishers will have no choice but to follow their penny pinching model.

If you agree to pay for playing outside of "plain ol pub matches" and "enhancing your expierence" what else are you willing to open your wallet to Activision for? You sound like the type that would justify paying Activision for dedicated servers while other games include them free. If they eventually go the route of pay to play online will you still defend them? Elite is just the beta test for future Activision business plans.
