Loyal PC Call of Duty Gamers: No CoD Elite For You?

Just over a week ago, we brought you frustrating news that the brand new Call of Duty Elite social network was going to be delayed for the PC, once again leaving the PC gaming crowd feeling like second class citizens compared to their console counterparts. Now, in a bitter blow, it appears that the Elite service may shut out loyal PC gamers altogether. Plus, as is typical of big companies, the message was delivered in the most terse and disrespectful way possible, via a short Twitter tweet:
@thejuggz We are working towards a universal Elite experience but we cannot guarantee if or when a version will be available for the PC.
So, that's it then, PC gamers may never get it and there's no explanation why. One can only surmise that it's due to the alleged "security issues" previously alluded to. Therefore, hopefuls will just have to wait on tenterhooks for an undefined period of time. So, the biggest sales launch in history isn't enough to convince the company to support the PC platform? It looks like detractors of the Call of Duty franchise have a very legitimate axe to grind this time, doesn't it? Probably the best way to view this unfortunate news is that the benefits weren't worth it anyway.

I think the article needs to rewritten from a neutral perspective.

Just to meet good practices in reporting.
When are people going to realize that qubit isnt going to change the way he delivers news? Ive seen numerous people bitch about it and it solves nothing. If bt and w1z have no problem with it, then get over it.

When are people gonna quit bitching about people bitching. Isn't having your articles criticized being a part of a writer (or any profession really). Geez man, get off your knees.

I dont see every single one of Bt's articles being criticized for how he writes them.

Oh and piss off. Just because I have an opinion of my own which happens to defend how qubit writes his articles, doesnt mean that im sucking his dick/we're gay for one another. I dont even talk to the guy.

The way i see it, if youre going to bitch about it, take it to PM's and leave it out of the main thread. The thread is there for news and your opinion ON THE NEWS. Not on how the news is written. It doesnt look good for newcomers to the site.
