Even if the number of players drop...idiots will still pay for this..so the end will still be a profit.

This is the one where people are going to pay monthly, right?

Activision's plans for a new subscription component for Call of Duty games, dubbed Call of Duty Elite, have leaked online ahead of the official embargo.

Call of Duty Elite will, according to the Wall Street Journal, launch alongside Modern Warfare 3 in November this year.

Elite offers players a number of analysis tools, as well as extra content and downloadable map packs in return for a monthly subscription. Tools include level maps, stat-tracking, player-searching tools and the ability to create clans and groups.

The cost of the subscription has yet to be determined, but Activision was keen to stress that players will not need to pay to play Call of Duty's standard multiplayer. Payment is only required for the Elite toolset.

More information will become available when the embargo lifts later today, but until then let us know your thoughts in the forums and check out the Modern Warfare 3 trailer below. More videos are available in the trailers section.
I don't buy the map packs anyways, so I see no use for this myself. But for others the features may be useful (i.e. console players).

I've seen some console players pointing out, that the stat-tracking, that is supposed be so much expensive was already part of Halo and for free. Bungie must have lost a fortune doing that :D

I love COD, but I hope this is a massive fail. I'll never pay monthly / yearly, etc to play a game online.

So basically nothing I care about.... this is for the people dumb enough to pay for it.

I'm pretty sure bungie did all that for free with Halo 2--at least as far as the level maps, stat tracking, player searching, and clans.

Valve does this with TF2 and CS:S as well.
