Bobby Kotick is Satan.

No longer content to shovel out the same game every year for $60, Kotick will be implementing a monthly fee system starting with MW3, despite his assurances to the contrary. Really, though, we all saw this coming. If there's any way to squeeze money out of a gamer, Kotick will find it. Stay tuned for Bobby's next brilliant ploy: pay-per-keystroke. Don't worry; it's all to ensure a superior product.

Also: "Rob Dyer, senior vice president of publisher relations at Sony's U.S. games division, said only a few games have the audience loyalty and size to support a subscription service like Call of Duty Elite. Mr. Dyer said he is "very confident" other publishers will follow Activision's lead. "There's money to be made there," he said."

How very unsurprising.

You forgot the part where he said he wants to stick his hands in our pockets and take more money than the government does.

'-' Damn. See while I love games I do not want to be a part of the industry at all. Ideas like this ARE evil. Now its different from an MMO with a different fan-base, yet they want to charge to play COD monthly? There is absolutely no reason for that. Again with MMO subscriptions are fine to me, there are expansions, many missions, and other content that to some gamers makes it worth it. With this...no this is just evil and greedy. My friend Cornzone was right why can't we all just go back to NES when we were happy with the games without a need or want for more? Well its not realistic but I see his point.

I don't even like MMO philosophies, but this is, to be rather dramatic, reprehensible. And, here I thought $15 mappacks were horrific.

Also, is no one else concerned by that last sentence in the article? "There is money to be made here." I can just picture the salivating dirtbag thinking that.

Yea that last sentence confirmed my belief that Activision doesn't give a fuck about there customers, just their money.

It was a Sony rep who said that.
