    And of course [sadly], people will pay, lots of them will.

    Mainstream Gamers are just living facepalms, anyway. Not that everyone who plays CoD is one, though.

    I would like a one time fee kinda thing for all map packs to be free (like BFBC2). A monthly subscription doesn't seem worth it.

    This is stupid. Looks like cod will be ending for me if they still don't offer a free service.

    Why are they doing this? They make SO much money already, I don't see why they are doing this.

    Sooo...

    $60 for the game
    $15 to $20 per map pack (always $20 for 360 players due to the point thing)
    A minimum of $10 a month for that online service

    That game is going to cost you between $200 and $300 just to get all of the content. That is just ridiculous. Activision needs to stop being so damn greedy.

    Note: This is all USD of course. Might end up costing Europeans and members of other countries far more in the long run based on their currency.

    Because they know people are going to pay for it no matter what so it's a golden opportunity to get more money

    [​IMG] 'Cause standing still after getting hit by a shower of bullets to regenerate health is definitely a true and accurate representation of real-world combat.

    The Call of Duty series is way too popular for the content each iteration delivers. I hope it gets milked to death like Guitar Hero. Without doubt, though, this 'new feature' will generate millions of dollars for Activision.

    Because if people are paying a subscription, they'll make even more, and subscribers are more likely to mainly play only that game in an attempt to get "the most for their money".

    They already ran Guitar Hero into the ground, but Activision's CEO is a miserable, greedy bastard who doesn't understand the gaming economy quite as well as he thinks he does. I give CoD two, maybe three new iterations before it goes down the same way.

    I've just learned to ignore the incredible amounts of ego inflation that go with having made the Call of Duty series that didn't even pick up on consoles until Call of Duty 4.

    Of course, two games that sold fairly well must make it the industries BIGGEST video game franchise.

    This news is filled with way too much fanboyism. It's almost unreadable.

    I wouldn't go as far as saying it's the biggest franchise, but Modern Warfare 2 set records, didn't it?

    Not to mention, when I walk places, I hear people talking about CoD ALL THE TIME.
