    The Funny Thing About COD Elite Premium

      We on 360 have already been paying to play COD via Xbox Live Gold so... yea?

      They think we are going to sub up for it? that be more then $100 a year to play 1 or 2 titles or so from COD that are under the service

      Gold Members should not have to pay for this service given that we still have to pay in addition for DLC in general for games at no discount

          What?

          Since when did Infinity Ward get the profits from Xbox Live?

              Yeah, but that  is not included in the Xbox Live fee.

              They are 2 entirely different services.

                    This is where PS3 players should be happy with.

                    Free online service FTW.

                      This argument again? "I pay for Xbox Live, I should get every fee waived." That argument is in tatters. If you're concerned about prices and you're still paying 59.99$ for Live you're doing it wrong. Our hobby isn't cheap and if you expect to be able to play any title with all of it's bells and whistles for less than 100$ a year, you're sadly mistaken. A cheap gamer should be trying to cut costs every way possible. A few dollars saved is worth it for some people and if you play your cards right you can minimize costs now.

                      Amazon 12Mo: 48.99
                      Hardened Edition: 99.99
                      Total Cost: 148.98

                      Full Price 12Mo: 59.99
                      Standard Edition: 59.99
                      Equivalent of 4 Map Packs: 60.00
                      Total Cost: 179.98

                      Total savings if being a real "cheap" gamer: 31.00

                      You can even go lower possibly. http://www.cheapassgamer.com - It's a real site for people who want to play on low costs.

                            I said at "no discount" not waived or free for DLC.

                            I have no issues with the idea of paying for 4 or so map pack over year period unless I've read wrong?

                            It's just the average consumer is going to go okay I pay $50-60 a year for Xbox Live Gold & a lot pay for that supposed "service" just to play COD & get maps pack 4-6 weeks in advance

                            Are going to look at this Elite Premium in the wrong light saying hmm other sub fee that's going to cost me $100 or so year to to play 1 or 2 COD game... not sure if want ^__^

                            P.S. Good thing there is a lot good single player IP this year & coming

                              If you're okay for paying up to four DLC pieces you should be happy to pay less for them and get more content. It makes little sense to not pay for it and other gamers should realize that too.

                                Speaking of, do you happen to know if any of those DLC packs come before '12?

                                    Pay less, get more.

                                    Yep, makes sense to me.

I and other gamers recognize this, Activision recognizes this, but a lot of people assume that the company is looming over ever gamer with their hand in their wallet. That isn't the case and assuming so is ignorance. Plain and simple. Sorry if I hurt your feelings, but I'm calling it as I see it.
