GAMING - Pay Activision (Call of Duty) More Money???

First we saw the map packs go up to $15! Now there is word that they might try to start a monthly subscription fee to play future COD games!

I was ready to boycott and go to Medal of Honor, but I really did not like how the game felt in the beta. I will rent the released game and try it again. If they try a monthly subscription for COD, I'm out... :(



What do you think? Would you pay $5, $10, or more a month to play?

Whether or not I'd pay a monthly fee is completely dependant on the service level I'd get by paying for it. If I got a seriously hot connection, it may be worth a few bucks. There are a lot of costs involved with hosting high quality servers.

I'd pay for map packs but definitely not a stupid subscription.

I don't think they use dedicated servers for COD. At least for the Xbox 360, I think the console with the best connection is assigned the host.

Not sure about PC and PS3 versions.

Halo:Reach is holding my attention right now and will for a while. MW2 is fun every once in a while for a few games. CoD:BO will not be bought by me!

I am a PC gamer and MW2 uses the best computer for host, MW uses dedicated servers. If they start a subscription then I think most of the PC gamers will stick with older versions. Even now MW has plenty of players online due to the dedicated servers.

no way in hell would i pay a monthly fee for a FPS, UNLESS, they offer great customer service, have some sort of anti-cheating software like punkbuster, have MUCH MUCH larger maps with large groups of people, like 126vs126. and host being able to modify game rules (IE. no grenade launchers, perks, etc.) the noob tubes have ruined the game for me, and i no longer even play COD, and even then I would be very suspect on paying a subscription to some greedy ass gaming company.

Would this apply to Console users too? Because that would be BS to have to pay for XboxLIVE and a Game subscription as well. This isn't a damn MMO.

THEY'RE ALREADY MAKING ENOUGH MONEY WHATS THE DEAL!?!?
Having to pay for xbox live is fine, but having to pay to play C.O.D. or to play extra maps is straight up ridiculous!!

Then it's definitely not worth the money if that's how it's going to work. If they are hosting to make sure the connection is as close to perfect as possible, then ya-I'd consider it.

Ban all the damn hackers, tone down the noob tubes (and most of the weapons), and get rid of deathstreaks. That's all you need to do to make me happy.

If this monthly fee came to Xbox, I'd stop playing COD. There are enough other first person shooters that I could survive on. If Borderlands had a decent multiplayer, I'd never leave the house.

I don't think Activision will discriminate, when it comes to taking money!

I agree! They have made BILLIONS off of COD (no exaggeration - google it) and still want to bleed some more out of the gamer!

They won't charge for PS3 owners, there is no way. PS3 owners do not have to pay for subscription for online play unlike Xbox owners. It won't happen...

Has nothing to do with XboxLive or PlaystationPlus (if you pay for that service). It would be like what Final Fantasy does with their online fee (which includes PS3)!

Shoot they cant even stop the mad hackers in the game. Why would I pay to have some hacker come in to wipe everybody out, rack up points then leave. With no recourse happening to him.

If they can say every glitch, hack, illegal mod will not get by and it be smooth even game play. Then maybe otherwise hell no.

I still wouldn't pay. It's their responsibility to keep the game going smoothly. Look at Halo 3, it's still a popular game even though Reach and MW2 are out. Reason? The degree of BS that goes on in Halo 3 is minimal thanks to Bungie actively maintaining the game after launch. You see people quitting MW2 every day because they're sick of all the crap that goes on.

FF 11 and FF 14 are MMO's. They are not your typical FF games of the past.

I think if Activision starts a subscription service for CoD, I will stop playing it. Yeah, it is a good story line and fun to play but when they came out with the first map pack, you were forced to buy it because the multi player wouldn't allow you to log on. To me thats kind of holding all who bought it as hostages.

Also, I think with this CoD, the fact that any idiot with a hack can come in and dominate a game and nothing really can be done about it is BS!.Plus dealing with substandard connections, lag spikes, long waiting time to log into a game. No, I think its time I moved on. Besides, GT5 is coming out in November and my time will be spent with that.

Activision, I think your going to be loosing alot of customers.
