Because this is the first time hearing of such, Never followed/played any Bungie titles so I wouldn't know they did that.

Killzone franchise offers that without paying even if it isn't as popular as COD or Halo

I won't. I never had a problem with P2P gaming on MW2, it was edgy at the start but when I came back to it after my fit of rage, I didn't play a game over 100 ping, which is fine for me.

Not everyone can dominate under laggy conditions, I sorta trained myself to I suppose, 2 years of 56k gaming and you learn a few things

I don't much care what they do with that series. Obviously someone out there is willing to pay a monthly premium for extra content.

Let them pay it. The rest of us will be quite happy not doing so. *shrug*

Bungie did the same thing. Why warn't you guys bashing them? OH wait most of you are probably BF3 fanboys. So what if BF3 did this? What would you do? I'm sure you would pay for it. Stop bashing Activision for doing something, just because you don't like them.

I did read the article and i stand by what i said.

They are holding back on features that other Developers/Publishers would include so they can make extra money even though the games sells better than any other.

Price for the game with DLC and one year Elite

£30 for the game
£11.49 DCL 1
£11.49 DLC 2
£60 1Year Elite @ £5/month(assuming its £5/month)
£112.98 Total ($185.59)

OK and so what? They are a business, their goal is profit. If it was such bad value, people wouldn't buy it!

You forget, it is us the consumer that ultimately decides whether a product is worth the money we pay. If again, CoD goes out and makes stupendous amounts of money, then there is obviously a market for what they are selling.
