Multiplayer: Free with every copy of COD: Black Ops


When launching COD: Black Ops the developers often give us helpful mesages at the bottom of the screen.  Such as: how many players have been killed, or how many faces have been painted or how many weapons attachments have been unlocked.  But recently I have noticed quite a strange mesage.  “Multiplayer: Free with every copy of Black Ops.”

Now why in the hell would they need to put that message there?  What could their explanation be for that.  To me they are hinting at charging for multiplayer in the future.  I would not expect Activision to do the right thing and leave it alone, I actually expect them to begin charging for multiplayer on the upcoming Call of Duty title.  It’s sad when a company that makes a billion dollars with one game feels like it’s not enough and is continuly looking for more ways to milk money out of a franchise and out of their customers.

If the upcoming Call of Duty title will not allow free multiplayer like every game in history has ever done, (the majority) then I will not bother.  It will be the straw that breaks the camel’s back, they will have crossed the line, and can go fuck themselves.  But I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Gaming is my medicine and writing is my drug. Is it making sense now? "WELCOME TO WARP ZONE!"

It's true sort of. Activision is building an experimental Cod for china or korea or sumthin made by beachhead studios the new studio they just opened to help market the online material. Mw2 was one of my last straws to break the camels back then i bought black ops and paralyzed the poor sap. They info is pretty new so its not quite known what their intentions are but I cannot see them making one game for one nation. They are greedy bastards after all

Uh?
Uh?

I know you're not professionally trained or anything, but if you expect people to take you seriously you need to brush up your writing skills. On a more relative note, the message was most likely to EA. They wouldn't be able to charge for MP being that I'm sure Sony and Microsoft wouldn't support the game. Plus people on live already pay.

Wow don't be so dumb. The whole thing about "free multiplayer" is due to people saying before launch that they would try to a subscription system. Look into things before you act like an ass

logically speaking it would be. PS3 & Wii are free to play online it most likely came with a "2 month free xbox live" card. most 360 games do. if not they were referring to the Ps3 and wii FTFO DUMBASS

It has said that since launch - a "friendly" jab at EA for requiring an online pass for non-new purchases to play online. Get a clue - or better yet, just cancel your dumb website and free up the IP space.

OUCH
OUCH

Nice comment, hit him with the truth and he calls you a troll? That's a quality person right ther. It 100% is about EA, Bad Co 2, and the online pass. Can't even own up to his/her own mistakes.

If it was a jab at EA then fine. I was not aware of that. And since I have only been playing BLOPS for a few weeks now that notice threw me off. Ohh and I called him a troll not because of the turth, but because of his last statement, which is the statement of a Troll.

Welcome Troll. I think there's some berries in the back I can feed you if your feeling hungry later.

This message did scare me a bit when I seen it first time. But after a while I started to realise. 'is this an actual joke?' Maybe you haven't tried to understand it in different perspective. Maybe ther taking the piss?? I mean what other reason would make them think 'ohh let's piss the whole community off by start charging for Mp'. It's been extremely succsesful in sales, yes I know Activision are selfish idiots but its highly unlikely that they will start charging... But you might be right after all .... :O
