    its still $50 A MONTH dude. $50 x 12 = $600 a year for a service that does exactly what battlelog/bungie.net/etc but those are all completely free. Not to mention the social network part of it is a direct copy of battlelog. Battlelog is like Facebook for Battlefield. Not only is it $600 a year but you also have to pay the $60 for the game and then for Xbox users comes the Xbox Live as well

    well, if you like it then you can subscribe to it.

    I honestly see no use for the service at all and all it does is segregate the gaming community and force Activision to make more frequent trips to the bank.....laughing all the way.

    Im not gonna pay $60 for a game then follow it up with $50 sub fees. Id just stick to playing the free content like an outcast.

    either way. It should be free. only thing its doing differently is allowing you to change your loadouts without be on your xbox/PS3. It should be free, but no activision is a bunch of dirty money whores.

    how hard is it to understand???

    you pay for DLC reguardless if you pay for it there and then or if they give it to you after you paid $50 at the start of the year.

    theres no difference at all. Its only free if you ONLY pay for the game and they give you all map packs for nothing.

    $60 full stop. no $15 for map packs and no $50 for subscription fees which claim to give it to you for free

    It is actually called having a job, maybe you should try it for a change.

    Lol Actually I do. but I pay for the trash to be taken out, not to be bought in (go figure)


    So youre paying $50 to get DLC's for 'free' - good job

    Here I go having to correct you again *sighs*

    I consider them to be free when it comes to this because:

    1: I would buy them separately if they didn't come through this COD ELITE package.
    2: In my opinion you are paying more for the service itself such as the stat tracking/social networking than for the DLC which in my opinion is just thrown in to make people more interested since I am sure they would still be able to have nice sales on COD ELITE even without the map packs included.

    Only Activision could market a feature from a competing game that everyone hates and get people to embrace it. CoD fans are basically paying for Battlelog, which most BF3 fans have pointed out is kind of annoying to use.

    I personally don't mind it. Real-time stat's tracking, the party creation with integrated voice chat and no annoying game intro to go through just to play a quick match. I found BFBC2's "Waiting for Server" everytime I logged in a tonne more annoying because sometimes it wouldn't load my stats at all or soldier and took ages to finish, there were alot of occassions where I had to restart the game just to get EA's servers to get my login right as I'd sometimes load up with no SPECTAT kit etc.

    Battlelog is great, idk why people insist on complaining about a new feature, let alone when it actually is working correctly nearly from launch give or take 24-48 hours.

    agreed i love battlelog. Makes it easy to play with friends and talk to them. Something i miss from all games when it comes to PC gaming. Its kind of like the Xbox Live join a party and play with friends. Thats what i love.

    I was shocked during Beta how much people complained about it. Other than not having Queues like BC2 did towards the end, I like Battlelog. The party system is a little clumsy, and the fact that Ping almost never works after the first 3-5 refreshes is bothersome, but I find it to be much better.

    They have queues. It depends on which server you're trying to get into but the best ones with barely any lag support queues, you'll see it looking something like 64/64(3).

    It must be something the server providers have to setup manually, because I have only seen a handful of servers with that setup, and just assuming it was reserved slots or something.

    I am actually kind of 50-50 on this one after reading some previews...I'm not as hyped up as I was about BLOPS...which was the biggest gaming dissapointment I ever have experience via pre-order (though it is much better now...just tried it again for the first time since 2 weeks after release).

    I just watched the video with Robert Bowling on GS, and there are some good things that I do like the sound...most notably the dedicated servers (rented or home built) support...and supposedly being able to do a non-ranked server where you still unlock weapons and goodies. 16 new maps for mp is another plus, very good for launch imo...though if they're a ton of smaller maps that would really suck. Though I hear the preload download size is quite large.

    But then again, I'm not too big on the P2P, I own a hardcopy of CoD4 so I don't really need a Steam copy...but then again if I get the game...it'd feel like more of a rip off to not get CoD4 with it after release lol. From what I've heard from my friends of BF3 I'm gonna wait a while.

    Though I'm sure MW3 will be buggy at launch as well...though I do hope it is as good as MW1 was at launch..ya it had some small issues but really best launch day fps I've played in years. I remember when patch 1.4 bugged the server searching and what-not though. I also like MW3 using the steam server search instead of the built in one...since they can't seem to get it right.

    Like I said I'm kind of 50-50 on hitting the pre-order button...though I did vote NO a long time ago on this thread. I did not buy MW2, I have seen it on PS3 though...it looked like fun. BLOPS feels a little slower paced than what I remember MW1 being...gonna go verify that now while I kick around dumping another 60 bucks down the drain or not...
