Wedbush's Michael Pachter gives new Call of Duty subscription service a thumbs-up, expects Activision to eventually introduce an auction house, EA to charge for Battlefield's Battlelog.
patcher officaly paid by activision
I see the cheque cleared.
i wont be one of those sheep,baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaa.
Bullshit hating aside - if you think about the amount of people who buy all of the CoD DLC packs for the year it's a ton. Tell these people you can get all the DLC's for a discount + other features then they'd be dumb not to pay it if they'll be buying the DLC anyway. Yes yes we know "cod suxx" "fuk dis game" etc etc.
Subscriptions are harder to sell to parents then one time fees. its these people that buy the dlc for their pimple faced teenage kids. I don't see it doing well but knowing activision they'll label 100 subs as a major success while the panicking goes on behind closed doors.
It's not recurring though. If little timmy says he needs the money so he can get all the map packs then most parents wouldn't know the difference.
I think this is much better than EA's Online Pass or project $10! You know the one that makes you pay $10 for a code to play online if you bought the game used. This is aimed squarely at the COD fans, those of us that enjoy playing the game online and will purchase the DLC anyway. Call me a sheep all you want, I like the series and am excited for the monthly DLC ELITE provides. I just pre-ordered the Hardened Edition from Amazon. Baaaaaaaaa! :) Peace LB
Online pass is not comparable...i think theres is battle log and its free ..plus cod dlc is overpriced...so you probably end up paying what other companies normally charge..but what do I know...yes you are a sheep..i kid ...cod is a fun game with a lot of people but not gods gift to gaming
I'm pretty sure BC2 players ended up getting most of thier content free. A one-time $10 charge is better than having to buy XBL twice a year.
I doubt that
Not really fair to 360 owners, that they'll have to pay the fee for their XBL then the CoD Elite, that's just ridiculous, map packs or not.
