Did you know that Activision is evil? Like... seriously, I heard that the entire company eats babies for lunch on Friday. Babies!
That was certainly the consensus after Call of Duty Elite was first announced and detailed by The Wall Street Journal. I was personally so shocked by Activision's decision to further their Call of Duty business plan by any means necessary. I thought they'd be giving everything away for free! DLC Map Packs, fancy preorder bonuses, maybe even some night-vision goggles?
Call of Duty Elite's beta will be opening soon for gamers holding on to their copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops. With the impending release, Bobby Kotick and company saw fit to announce exactly what piece of its Elite service would be free. Here it goes:
-Upload 30 second videos to Youtube
-Videos tagged with all players
Streaming and sharing
Loads Outs - Study, Edit + Push to game from any linked device
Facebook Friend Import
Weapon Performance Stats
Cross Device Messaging

Is that enough? What do you expect Activision will ask you to pay for should you choose to subscribe to its Elite service?
