I'm wondering if anyone else thinks its stupid that the MW3 map pack is only available to Elite Premium fanboys until March, after which it will be released for sale to everyone. Elite Premium subscription is $50.
Yes, getting 3 map packs over the next year for $50 is cheaper than getting 3 map packs for $14.99 each when they are sold individually.
The problem I have with it is there's a good possibility the other 2 map packs won't be any good or I just plain won't like them. I'd rather not pay for them up front without knowing anything about them, so I'll keep my $50. In March when my non-Elite money is good enough, I'll have moved on to other things and I'll keep that $ too.
While we're on the topic of Elite...anyone else think its a clunky POS? It'd be nice if it was integrated into the game instead of running as a separate app. The stat tracker is kind of nice, but nothing that couldn't have been incorporated into Barracks in-game. The rest of it seems like a compilation of trash that someone with some attention could easily figure out on their own. I didn't see anything in there that would make me want to pay $50...seems like the map packs are the only real thing of value.
