GameZone's Matt Liebl, who was previously wary of the Elite service, has finally decided that Call of Duty Elite is not a rip-off and lists his reasons for getting behind the service.
I'm liking what I am hearing so far. We will have to wait for the actual content/service to arrive, but I wish we had this for Gears 3!
I still have yet to hear if having Elite premium for ps3 will bypass the MS/Acti agreement for early dlc. Or do non premium ps3 players have to wait that much longer?
Activision probably just moves the release date over 30 days for PS3....
I read the list of whats inc whats not. Nothing said about deadicated servers thats sad.
Wanna spot a rip off ? Well it's whenever something need that kind of apologetic articles . You wanna spend your money that way ? Then do it and stop feeling guilty about it , so much that you would invent BS excuses about why it's ok .
I'm not seeing the BS excuses. The guy just explained Elite's features and said why he thinks they're worth it. It's an opinion piece and all he's doing is stating his opinion in comparison to how he initially felt.
to each its own , i can't help feeling it's a bunch of excuses , just like the bunch of "why its ok .." articles we saw for dlcs and plenty other "bad" things . Most of what he described has been available for free in quite a few games . Now it's getting sold in a package deal .
You would be spending this money on the dlc when it comes out anyways...so why is that being included in a package deal a bad thing? No one is forcing you to get it. Also, why do you feel DLC is a bad thing? If you love a game, why wouldn't you want more content for it?
Certainly not something i'm interested in paying for . Does anyone know how it will work out on PS3? because as far as i'm aware DLC is going to be a timed exclusive for 360 .
No no its still a rip off for sure
shhhhh they dont want u to say that
If you're the type of person that buys all the DLC, there's no question that it's NOT a rip off, as you get it all but more often and for less than if you bought it individually. But then you have to ask yourself if the DLC is a rip off.....
This call of duty elite is one of the reasons I'm finished with the call of duty series. Activision are too greedy. They lost a customer, and I know I'm not the only one. Instead this fall I'll be playing gears, uncharted, arkham city, rage, deus ex, and perhaps battlefield 3 if I need to scratch that itch. I don't think I'll miss cod at all.
