Xbox DLC Deal, Elite, and PS3 how it all works!

December 22, 2011 in ELITE, MW3, NEWS, PS3, Xbox

Modern Warfare 3 has its first Map Pack DLC coming out exclusively to Xbox Elite Premium Members on January 24th, 2012. After this news was announced must admit that I was surprised at how the twitter COD community BLEW UP! Lots of peeps asking why Elite Premium PS3 members have to wait the “typical 30 days” later after Xbox for the MW3 DLC content. CODBUNKER has posted this info many times (as has many others, including VIPs such as Dan Amrich aka OneofSwords) THIS HAS NOT CHANGED the benefit is that Xbox & PS3 Premium Elite members don’t have to pay for their DLC, and will receive it earlier than non premium members; however, it will still be staggered in accordance with a previously struck agreement with Activision and Microsoft which you can see here Previous XBOX Exclusive Deal.


ALSO, it states on the ELITE FAQ page:

“Do X360 and PS3 Call of Duty ELITE Premium members receive their DLC at the same time?

Similar to Map Packs, X360 Premium members will receive their DLC before PS3 Premium members. All Call of Duty ELITE Premium members will receive a steady stream of content released monthly for 9 months through the DLC season, and they will also receive their DLC before non-premium members on their console. “

I do not know where the misunderstanding has come from as Elite, Activision have been very clear, and the word has been put out many times, by not just CODBUNKER, but other sites as well. It is what it is!!! I am NOT defending anybody, I just want all the facts out there.

My personal take is “I don’t like it” but that is Business! MSFT struck a deal with ATVI & SONY lost out. (If anybody’s been left hung out to dry it’s been the PC community, IMHO) Secondly if you want to be mad about something I’d suggest that you pressure ATVI & Beachead Studios as to WHY ELITE is STILL NOT working like it was marketed to do soooooo long ago……….Just saying. I will have an upcoming article on that mess soon!

  1. I’m not happy about the whole Elite thing to begin with. The ball wasn’t rolling very good when COD MW3 came out. It was about 2 weeks after that they allowed users to start using the site. You could look around, but that was about it. Plus, if I had paid attention here more :P, I would have bought the hardened edition that came with Elite. Noooo, I bought the regular version then spent 49.99 on elite the next day. Bringing my grand total to 109.98 for my MW3 experience on xbox….wait….did I say xbox…well add another 50 bucks on top of that. Anyway, I remember Wally World handing out $20 gift cards if you bought the hardened edition for $99. Anyway, I’m not overly impressed yet. Sorry PS3 users are getting screwed….I would be pissed also.
