Is this to thwart all the little a**hole hackers who have been ruining the game or something more? Activision announced the deah of Guitar Hero yesterday and also a change in the Call of Duty camps game plan. Michael Pachter of Wedbush Securities said –
“Activision said they are working on ‘value added, premium content that is exclusive. How do you exclude people unless you do it on the basis of whether they pay or not? What are you going to have a bouncer in front of the club where you play the content? The only way it’s exclusive is if it excludes non-paying members,>The exclusive content could be pay as you go, or monthly. Let’s say Project Beachhead comes up with ‘Call of Duty Universe,’ and it launches with Modern Warfare 3 and they say ‘if you join here’s all the exclusive content and exclusive weapons and we’ll charge you a dollar a piece.’ Or If they say, ‘for $5 a month you get unlimited weapons and all the map packs we bring out for Modern Warfare in perpetuity,’ a lot of people will say, ‘I’m going to buy three map packs for 15 dollars anyway, so for $60 a year, I’m getting all the unlimited weapons and achievements,’ so they could do that. I don’t know if that’s what they’re going to choose to do. I’d say $5 a month is reasonable, though.”
Are you willing to pay to play for the game you love so much?
