Call of Duty Elite Coming with Modern Warfare 3

Call of Duty Elite leaked along with Modern Warfare 3 recently and everyone assumed, correctly, that the title referred to the monthly service Activision has always hoped to tack on to Call of Duty's millions of global players.
The screenshot above represents a player's page within the Elite service. The Wall Street Journal writes:
While I wouldn't call CoD "hyper-realistic," the Wall Street Journal does continue to point out that:
If you're wondering how much Activision is hoping you'll pay for Call of Duty Elite, look to "comparable online-entertainment services, such as a $7.99-a-month Netflix Inc. movie subscription."
No. Just no. I don't mean to mouth off but there's gotta be more to "Elite" status than a handful of map packs. The Call of Duty player base isn't large enough to support some kind of social-networking kind of thing either. I also don't think taking away the theater and recording options from players in order to charge for them is smart either. Honestly, I could only justify a Call of Duty subscription if it meant getting a copy of Activision's yearly Call of Duty series for free with my monthly fee.
