[G4TV] Call Of Duty Multiplayer Fee Coming -- Analyst Michael Pachter - Page 8

i will never pay to play COD online. To be honest, the quality of the online play isnt worth an extra penny than what you initially pay for the game.

I'm not paying a subscription to play a shooter unless it's of the MMO variety, and I'm certainly not playing a shooter MMO developed by a CoD studio. That about sums up my thoughts on the matter.

i swear this is what i wanna do.. if i was at their conference, i honest to God, right hand on the bible would stand up, throw two middle fingers in the air and try to motivate everyone in the audience to do the same exact thing. that sums up how i feel about activision

p.s. im not even close to joking about this. this would be an epic win if everyone did it

Noting will piss off customers/players/gamers more than double dipping. Yes, developers deserve to be paid -- and that's what the up front cost + DLC charge is for. This pay to play just to even turn on the game is ridiculous. If it does actually go into effect, it'll free up some time to play other games at least as right now, CoD takes a lot of it. Your call Activision...

I would pay a monthly fee for an MMOFPS, as long as it was decent.

I've loved every single COD series as far as gameplay, design, and playing feel. I haven't loved the bugs and hacking of the recent releases, but the gameplay still keeps me playing them. I really enjoy the series, and would love even more to see it turn into an MMO in some way. I've never been interested in MMO's because of the 3rd person view of things - that just doesn't appeal to me in the slightest.

All that said, if it's a standard multiplayer game as we have today, there's no way I'd buy it if there was a monthly fee for multiplayer. Same reason I don't have a 360 - I'm not going to pay to play online. An MMOFPS is the ONLY thing I would be willing to have a monthly fee associated with, and only because it would just be So. Freaking. Epic.

I'm surprised that everyone is jumping the gun and assuming it's already a 100% given that this is happening even though Activision already said this won't happen.













I give it a 60% chance of happening though, knowing how Kotick runs the place.

I play COD all the time especially the multiplayer but if they do this they are going to lose sooooooooo much money. Everyone who plays it only really gets it for the multiplayer and not so much the campaign. So i can say that if this happens i am done with COD i'm not going to buy it just to play the campaign. Stupid, Stupid, Stupid.

hmmm, just thinking out aloud - no haters plz


Activision publich a new COD game every 12 months, and each game costs $89.95 new. Now if they move to pay-to-play, as long as the monthly payments are $7.50/month or less, there is really no difference in cost to those who only ever played the game for <12 months before upgrading to the next COD release.

It could also be a much cheaper option for those who played the game for only a few months before they got bored and never played it again - you could pay for a few months and then end your subscription and move to a different game and possibly spend less money on those few months of pay-to-play COD then if you had to spend the full $89.95 for the game and keep it.

This only works if the game is given away free (like wow) and you only have to pay <$7.50/month to play.

If you actually have to pay for the game as well as the monthly pay-to-play fee, then you definitely lose out.

Now, I'm in no way supporting this method of gaming, I'm just saying it COULD (and that's a BIG could) end up costing less depending on the game cost and the monthly fee charged to play the game.

Saying all that, I hope to god that this finally kills off COD and everyone moves on to other games - COD is ruining online gaming and online gaming will never progress while COD has the support of all the fanbois.

it's not a subscription based fee.

they are doing the same structure as other games like farmville.

you pay for guns and other goodies. probably pay for more customization on your character too. pick and choose your camo, clothing, and probably face.
