Call of Duty Elite
Friend or Foe?

By now most people, have hopped off the fence and decided whether or not they are prepared to spend the money on Call of Duty’s ELITE service.
For those of you who have been living in a cave for the last few months and don’t know what ELITE is, it’s a service from Activision that gives Call of Duty players their online stats (similar to Bungie.net/Halo Waypoint), community features, and ‘free’ DLC.
I will start off by explaining why I put the word ‘free’ in inverted commas, although it should be pretty obvious: the truth is that it’s not actually free, is it? You pay a yearly subscription that gives you access to it when available.
That annual fee in the UK is £35 which is only £5 short of the actual game’s price. If it was just the DLC that you were getting with your subscription then it’s not hard to see that it’s not exactly a good deal.
If you actually stop to think about it, it is just the DLC that you are getting with the service. (more…)
