Man, that would really, really, really, really, really suck!

The only reason I picked up MW2 was so I could play with my friends. (Thanks Zer0 & Haut) Now they want to go out and make people pay to play. I don't think that will work out for them, at least I doubt I would be giving them any more money to play, let alone buying their next game in the first place. All that lawsuit stuff is pretty funny though. It kind of sounds like all those people are right back in high school with all their little drama. Come on folks lets whip out those weiners and get measuring so we can all move on.

That is the problem. They are overpricing things, and people are still buying them. They know they can get away with it because they are dealing in the market of teenagers that want he newest version of whatever is on the market. For me, even the first map pack is still overpriced, so I won't be buying it. Thankfully Reach is coming out in like two months so I will have something at normal price to play, and they are throwing EVERYTHING into this game, so I will be playing it for a very long time. If by the time I am ready for a break from Reach, and they are doing pay to play, I will be looking elsewhere for a change of pace.

A one time cost even an over priced one is a lot different than a monthly bill... buy buy craptivision... it was glitchy while it lasted but now its time to Reach for greater things.

Call of duty won't be pay to play.

Modern Warfare 2 subscription plan rumors going around. For the record, nobody has to pay to play COD or MW2 multiplayer, nor will they.

No, you will not have to 'Pay to Play' #CODBlackOps Multiplayer either. Rumor -> Squashed.

Makes me sick...Activision is bringing a bad name to Call of Duty. So greedy, it's unbelievable. Can't you just keep business and development separate, without harassing in hopes of squeezing more money out of something? I don't care how many tweets I see "squashing" the rumors of pay-to-play; I won't believe it until I see it. If they do pick up pay-to-play, which seems likely, I can easily drop CoD altogether. Reach is looking more and more promising by the update. It almost feels like the wait for Halo 2 all over again :P. Follow in the footsteps of Bungie, it would be wise.

From the way the video explained it, it won't be pay to play, but rather, pay a little extra and get "premium multiplayer", whatever that is.

A stealthier way to say pay-to-play, lol.

they mentioned those twitter posts in the video.
Then then mentioned something about "black Ops wont be" .... that does not mean the next one will follow that either.
Yes they mentioned the "premium player experience".
