Safe to say, Modern Warfare 3 is easily the most anticipated game of the year, and now the controversy over the game is about to hit a new high. As reported by the Wall Street Journal, Activision will be launching an online service called Call of Duty Elite. To get an idea of what the service consists of, you can watch the official trailer by Activision:
The Call of Duty Elite service will have a variety of features with it, but the big question is will it come with a price? While the WSJ said that Activision executives �expect the cost to be less than fee for comparable online-entertainment,� there’s been some confusion on what will be charged. Robert Bowling of Infinity Ward tweeted:
COD ELITE is free, for all players, some paid aspects TBD. Absolutely NO fee to play #MW3 multiplayer. Detailed reveal coming tomorrow AM.
So yeah there will be something that has to be paid for. What part? We don’t know yet. Those details will be revealed at 9am EST today. Soon enough we’ll see if Call of Duty Elite is simply another cash grab by Activision or a viable service. I’m leaning towards a cash grab.
