Microsoft's got a hold of that little one month before everyone else bit, even though the CoD games are made on PC. I don't know why someone would be stupid enough to get scammed into paying a monthly fee in order to gain access to DLC early though, seems like a worthless gimmick.

It is hardly all that. I have to pay yearly to get things that the PS3 can get for free, this is not a bad thing, though. I have a number of reasons:

The PS3 controller is too small for my oversized hands, this made my hands hurt after using it for 2+ hours. If you can't play comfortably, you shouldn't play.
The Xbox layout and menus are much simpler and easier to navigate, in my opinion.
Xbox has a few exclusives that I love playing: Halo, XCOM etc.
Games generally get better service on Xbox like Skyrim and CoD.

Things like those come with paying. I could never play PS3 because of the controller. I would much rather pay for comfort.

Just getting DLC earlier is hardly a benefit. It is just a side-attraction.
These are my opinions, but I guess this affects many others, too.

At least you have excuses for your decisions, unlike some people who would just yell at me for stating my opinion.

Still makes me wonder why they bother paying a hefty amount for XBox to get it first, I'm sure there are only a hand full of people who actually pay attention to this (Huge fans). Maybe it's bragging rights that advertise the XBox, like "Well I have XBox so I get the DLC first!", "Wow, now I really want XBox".

I was a playstation guy from ps1 to ps3. My main argument was always paying 10 bucks a month for XBL. My PS3 got the YLOD a few years back. I had a friend give me one of his old 360s and a free month of live. Since then I've been an XBOX fan.


PS3 has updates which will set your console offline for any given amount of hours. I recall either Black Ops1 or MW3 not working online for PS3 for nearly a month? All because the playstation servers had a massive meltdown or something? Then they threw everyone a selection of free games and whatnot to download to pay them back for the inconvenience.

I pay 10 bucks for 2 packs of cigarettes. I can afford to fork over that much to keep LIVE going. In my opinion we pay to play, therefor we should be allowed to get DLC and whatnot first.

Alright. Then blame IW, Activision and Treyarch. They're the ones who worked the deal with Microsoft for it to work that way. Obviously they understand the logic behind it.

Er no.
360 users get early access to DLC because Microsoft pays for it, not because 360 users have to pay for online.

And you don't think they pay for it(if they do) because we pay for online?

No.
They do it so more people would buy games like COD on the 360 instead of the PS3 because you'd get the DLC faster.
But then again I think timed exclusives are dumb, I can wait a month or two for a game/DLC. If you're going to moneyhat something then go ahead and go through it the whole way and make the whole game exclusive forever on your platform instead of a few months.

She writes news here and she's the managing editor.
Employed, in a sense.
Don't complain. There are always those who are more famous than others, especially ones as high-up as her.
