Gamefreak looks at Call of duty Elite.....good idea or Activision cash-cow?

Hey guys, hope you're having a fantastic day.

Unless you have only just woken up, you have probably heard that in November this year, scheduled for release alongside Modern Warfare 3, the new subscription-based service for Call of Duty will launch. This is a new service, which tracks your stats, favourite weapons, where you get killed/kill other people on maps, maybe some bonus content. Basically all the stuff that Bungie.net has been doing for Halo for the past few years, only this time you pay a monthly fee.

No pricing structure has been announced, but Activision says it will be "comparable" to other similar services out there. So free then if they take a leaf out of Bungie's book.

Here's a wee video containing my thoughts.

So what do you think? Are you going to plump up for the same kind of service that Halo fans have been enjoying for years...for FREE? Or are you going to tell Kotick where to go and stick it?

Your thoughts, as always, are appreciated.
