The elite means you get the content something like a month before other ps3 users just the same as Xbox elite who get it a month before other xbox users but PS3 Elite users still have to wait a month after Xbox Elite users to receive their content

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.

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 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!
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.
