Finally the FIRST MW3 DLC for PlayStation 3 Elite Premium subscribers !!!

CoD Elite - Premium

A few days AFTER the Xbox 360 Elite Premium subscribers got their first MW3 DLC, back in January, the PlayStation 3 Elite Premium subscribers were told they had to wait till the end of February.

So most of the PS3 Premium members were angry because they thought that their Call of Duty: Elite Premium membership also meant that they would receive the MW3 DLC on the same day as Xbox 360 Elite Premium subscribers; but this was clearly not the case. Due to an arrangement Activision still has with Microsoft the Xbox gamers are always getting any extra CoD content before any of the other platforms. (The Xbox already received their second DLC !)

But today the first MW3 DLC got released for PS3 Elite Premium subscribers, containing the first  2 new maps.

And when can YOU expect your Modern Warfare 3 DLC ?

CoD Elite - MW3 - Clan Operations FAQ

CoD Elite - Premium

What are Clan Operations ?

Clan Operations are competitions which score players and Clans based on a specific statistic in a selected game mode over a pre-set period of time. Operations can range from Most Team Deathmatch Kills to Most Captures in Domination, generally last for three to four hours, and award real prizes and ELITE badges.

The two key differences between Clan Operations and Lone Wolf Operations are that Clan Operations score members of Clans instead of independent players, and Clan Operations award Clan XP. Please note that only the scores of up to six Premium members of your Clan will count towards winning prizing.  

How do I enlist my clan in a CoD: Modern Warfare 3 Clan Operation?
Your Clan Leader must enlist your Clan into a Clan Operation through the "Compete" section of the ELITE website.  If your Clan is not signed up you should contact your Clan Leader to enlist.

Can we challenge other Clans in an Operation?
Not directly. Clan Operations allow Clans to compete for placement on the Clan Operation Leaderboard. The top six scores from participating Premium members in your Clan are combined and ranked on the Clan Operation Leaderboard.

Call of Duty Elite - Is it a douche move ?

CoD Elite - Premium

Eric Hirshberg, chief executive of Activision Publishing

Eric Hirshberg, chief executive of Activision Publishing, talked about the role that creative people should play in  making decisions about running a video game business. Too often, he said, creative people leave it to the business experts. But creative people shouldn’t sell themselves short, as Hirshberg learned in the last 18 months running the division that includes Call of Duty franchise.

With the launch of the latest Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Activision Blizzard (the parent company) made some controversial moves. One of them was to create the Call of Duty Elite social networking service for game fans. The service offered things like networking with friends, videos, service enhancements. But the controversial idea was that Activision wanted to charge a subscription fee for the premium version of the service. When bloggers heard about that, they revolted, Hirshberg said, because they thought that Activision would charge for things that used to be free.

“It’s a douche move,” said Neils Hansen , a blogger who runs the Gunn Shop report on YouTube.

Hansen couldn’t believe that a Game company would alienate its core gamer base by charging money. So he organized a protest to boycott the Elite service, even before he fully knew what it was.


“We had a summer of criticism,” Hirshberg said, speaking at the DICE Summit game conference in Las Vegas.

But Hirshberg said he believed from his creative background as an artist and advertising executive that games are not products, they’re brands. While people buy products, Hirshberg said, they “buy into brands.” That means that brands are a cultural phenomenon built around products such as games that inspire people to buy those products over and over again. By treating Call of Duty as a brand, Hirshberg said, the company could get away from the traditions that held that a game was a product that sold for $60. After all, in 2011, Call of Duty was a top ten topic of conversation on Facebook; it was the only entertainment brand with a product you could buy on this list.
