I'd just love to see how many people actually would pay for this fee, then be disappointed in humans for it.
WoW has a subscription fee yet i have botted mines day and night while i was playing would get around 1kgold/day nothing happened to me.Jamash said:Activision must have some pretty big tricks up it's sleeve to neutralise the hackers which plague COD.
I mean, as it stands at the moment they don't have to do anything to ensure that nobody cheats and everybody plays a fair game, because nobody is paying for their service, but once they start charging people a subscription they'll have to actively hunt and ban anyone who cheats to ensure that the majority of their customers get the service they pay for.
I can imagine the Elite COD service will run normally like any multiplayer game should, while the free service will degrade into a anarchic laggy hack-fest with no rules or enforcement whatsoever.
Will Activision also be running their own servers to ensure their subscribers will be able to use their service in the event of another PSN outage, or would they force Sony to refund a portion of the fee... and what about scheduled PSN maintenance sessions?
A company undertakes a lot of responsibility and expectation once they start charging people a subscription, it will be interesting to see how Activision lives up it's part of the bargain (or more likely dodges it with small print and legalese).
Yes so if you see any of your friends even remotely considering getting this new COD. Find the nearest large blunt object and beat them about the head with it.Riff Moonraker said:Bungie did this for all the Halo fans on their website (they still do) and it didnt cost us a penny. I have a feeling that this could come back and bite Activision square in the ass. (I hope it does) If it DOESNT, then prep yourselves to start seeing this happen with other games, too, and we will all suffer for it in the long run.
