PS3 users mugged off again over COD DLC even with Elite

How is it that yet again PS3 users get stuffed again with the DLC on MW3? I paid for the Elite membership and so far all I've have is some crummy titles and emblems. Wheres the Clan events?

 

What was the point of paying £35.00 if we have to wait a month after they are released on Xbox before we get them?

 

Estimating they have probably had a million ps3 users take up elite thats £35m in the bank and not even given anyhting for it yet.

 

Yet again COD manages to produce a product that causes everyone to moan about some facete of it but we all continue to buy it.

 

The game plays ok and I think its good but you shouldn't sell an add on service that doesn't work properly. They wheel out the old 'we didnt realise it would be this popluar' which bearing in mind the numbers of copies of the game sold over the last 4 years surprises me.

 

Overall not feeling very "Elite" at present. Rant over!

Because all the £35 payments from all the PS3 elite members still isn't a fraction of the money Microsoft are paying them for DLC dibs.

 

And of course the real reason they get DLC first is that the MS bosses have the Ferrero Rocher arranged in a pyramid at the buttering up party.

Just like PS3 users get stuff early from EA. Fair play to Microsoft.

Xbox getting the DLC first is in the FAQ on the Elite site since Elite was in beta. Shame people don't do a bit of research on these things before spending their monies.

I seem to remember this being asked before release and it was confirmed that PS3 would still be a month behind on DLC, regardless of elite membership. It sucks, but unless you wanna lend Sony the millions to cover Microsoft's fee, that's the way it is.

So do you read every terms and conditions word for word. I bet you do. I'm just actually saying where is the 'eliteness' for ps3 users. There isn't. Oh hang on I'll save £5 overall on the map packs. Silly me.

I never do! But i did have a read of the FAQ section (Link provided!) The Elite'ness of Premium on PS3 is that you get the DLC before non-Premium PS3 users.

The timed releases have been like this since MW2 and I admit whilst its common knowledge to most I would hazard a guess it isnt stated clearly to people actually buying Elite that MS get is a month sooner. Although you paid your money so guess you will have to live and learn

Exclusive timings are the norm and are generally give and take as PS3 got the "free" BF3 DLC two weeks before MS. Most fans of the game and paying Elite members would generally know this but at the end of the day IW are at no obligation to let you know and you will just get it when they say so...tough really

The elite means you get the content something like a month before other ps3 users just the same as Xbox elite

You have to wait a month AS YOU DO WITH EVERY COD over Xbox.

PS3 elite users still get it ahead of ps3 and Xbox non elite users.

Microsoft have an exclusivity deal with activision.
It's no different to EA's deal with Sony over Bf DLC

i think the elite situation is a bit daft really, by the time non paid elite members get the dlc, paid elite xboxers will probably be on their second dlc pack (or maybe third).

 

I don't have a problem with microsoft having exclusivity on first dlc, but a month gap between xbox and ps3 is a joke in a  game that realistically has a lifespan of a year at best (in terms of high popularity at least, we all know that when november comes along a high percentage of mw3ers will move on to black ops 2 or whatever its called). the gap should be 2 weeks at most.

I agree, why the need for a month gap? Microsoft must be paying them a fortune for the benefit and does it achieve anything other than annoy ps3 owners, I certainly wouldn't go and buy an Xbox just because of it though. Won't be long before they start releasing the game a month before on Xbox only!

Personally speaking I dont give a toss over this exclusivity agreement.

I pay exactly the same amount of money for a premium elite service as the xbox community but they are getting preferential treatment. Sobasicly its a two tier premium service, which I will no longer be funding. I may get the next COD installment I may not, but if I do it wont be with e *****e rip off elite service with it.

Seventy percent of the stuff that you get with the current version of Elite you were able to see online with COD W@W. They had Heat maps, challenges and history of your last few games. 

To be honest I feel its just a big con. they made 450 million in 5 days through sales. Surely their yearly budget does not exceed that? (I Seriously doubt it), suffice to say I wont be purchasing their pockets for their rip off "premium" service any more.

i am in the position where i could buy the game for xbox, but my xbox friends don't really play it and my ps3 friends do (i almost considered it the other day..... i saw the hardened editon on xbox for £59.99, but figured it would be a waste of money at the moment as i am gonna be offline from march until november).

A few of my friends have jumped to XBOX360 recently and harass me EVERY DAY about going on MW3/BF3 but i'm still not in a position of wanting to switch for multi plats . . . I just prefer the feel of PlayStation.

If Microsoft bring out their console ahead of Sony (like the 360) and my friends upgrade to it - then I will have pretty much no choice but to jump ship for everything other than exclusives.

It's not really a massive deal though, is it??

 

 

This 1 month gap has been around for ages, it's still around now. Nothing has changed. All Elite premium membership gives you is a discount on the DLC, that was clear from the start.

Please please do and then you can go on the Xbox forums....Im sure if we have a whip round on the BF forum members we woudl quite happily get enough together and buy you an Xbox ourselves. it would be worth it
