Is Activision Smarter Than We Think? A Closer Look at Call of Duty Elite

It might be hard to imagine that Activision saw this coming, but it feels pretty convenient that Call of Duty Elite was introduced in the same year that 'COD' sales started to slow... (Activision, Beachhead Studio, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Infinity Ward, PC, PS3, Tag Invalid, Xbox 360)

Is it smart when they are praying on the gullible? The ones who were going to run headlong into the store and buy the game. See Call of Duty Elite slapped against their face as they booted up the multiplayer and proceeded to buy knowing they'd get a discount on the DLC to come later? Not to mention various other things but of course DLC could have been the main draw. On one hand I guess it was smart but on the other...it is simply watching the track record of previous games to know how it's going to turn out. Call of Duty Elite well perhaps could have been pre-meditated but for the most part I dunno..

Devious might be a more appropriate term.

Anything is smarter than CoD haters.

Yes, ANYTHING is smarter than people who have legitimate reasons for disliking a franchise that releases yearly but changes less than equally yearly sports games.

cod elite is a rip off. all those stats you can look at are totally FREE! in black ops. its the reason i refuse to buy it. and i dont think elite is doing that great in sales either, cod maps were usually number 1 in sales in the psn store but elite is not even in the top 10, probably the reason bowling got the sack.

and if bought it on the ps3, well then you should just throw yourself off a bridge.

MW3 sales are already past Black Ops.
Sales aren't slowing down anything lmfao. In fact, they're STILL GROWING. You pathetic trolls are SO desperate for COD fail that now you believe anything you read. Do yourselves a favor and do some actual research.

I haven't brought elite because i'm not going to be fool by Activisison, nobody thought about if you stop elite will you lose your content that you paid for the year you was on elite.

Another pompous idiot who knows nothing about Elite let alone MW3. It clearly states that anything you download during your Elite subscription is yours to keep FOREVER. Oh and it gives you more in depth stats then Blops along with video guides to every map and weapon not to mention Elite TV and competitions with prizes daily all available on your CONSOLE. It started slow but is getting better and more fleshed out as time goes.

Either way yeah I was so screwed for getting $10 off the DLC I would have bought anyway and getting all the things I mentioned above. COD haters need to just sit on it and spin, anyone who likes the game and has Elite is getting a great deal in regards to what any other game offers. If you don't like it just move on to something you like instead of following a game you don't like closer then many of its fans solely to show your disdain and clear lack of research or first hand knowledge.

Only a idiots won't to sit there and look at stats and stuff you can look at without elite for free. If you have PS3 you not getting it when 360 get there's you still waiting for the maps like me you idiot.
