There Are Plenty Of Folks Ready to Dive into Call of Duty Elite

There has been some skepticism in the media regarding Call of Duty Elite, the recently announced online stat tracking service for gaming’s most popular franchise. Does anybody care about it? Will anyone actually pay money for premium stuff? That first question has certainly been answered, as it has been announced that more than two million people have so far signed up for the Elite beta next month.

That’s a hell of a lot of people, and I would bet that a few of that number will be more than happy to throw down some cash for premium features. I’m so confident in that statement I would bet actual dollars. Dollars!

I can name you a dozen MMO’s that probably had in the hundreds of thousands in beta and maybe even a few well over a million and some are gone and some are hanging on as we speak. Don’t make the mistake of reading into beta numbers. Any smart person will tell you this. Many of those units are going to be sold to tweeners and after their parents pop for the $75 dollars with tax for the game, they are not going to EVEN consider the thought of another $5 dollars or whatever the cost is going to be a month, “reoccurring” charge for “stats”. Are they insane? There have already been a few retracted blog posts from the “former” REAL devs from Treyarch that said this new “elite” feature they are charging for was actually something that was meant to be free that Fat Bobby got his fat fingers on, stripped out and wanted to charge extra for. Go dig around, you might find those blog posts. Give’us a break. We aren’t stupid. This isn’t BF3 and no, we aren’t paying blood money to fat Bobby. CoD has always been about small maps, run and jump mechanics. It has never afforded any level of skill or strategy. Why are you talking about this console kiddie game again?
