I am just curious because I've been hearing things about MW3 having one. Is it true or am I just reading gibberish made-up myths ?

Gibberish made up myths (sort of). There's something called 'Call of Duty: ELITE' but not having that will not stop you playing online. 402 has said many times that they will never charge for online play.

To play online, you will not have to pay anything extra.

The subscription service is for Call of Duty Elite, an online service that will also partially be free to users, but to get the rest of the features you'll have to pay.

No it will not. You buy the game for 40 and you get everything you normally get. Elite is what you CAN pay for.

When you are 'hearing things', to check whether they are true or not go to the official source. Robert Bowlings twitter is the place to go for that sort of information.

What annoys me is that no one that has any control over CoD or the direction of the franchise has ever said it'll cost to play the game. Just some industry expert douche said it was something they should consider because they have such a huge player base.

No one at any of the development studios, publishing houses or anyone, ANYONE that has any power or influence has ever said there would be a fee. Why has this become such a big thing?

An industry expert douche who has never played the game, and will likely get his copy the same day we get ours. Just another person making stuff up to get their article/blog noticed.

True, so far it's just been people predicting trends and such... but Kotick or whatever his name always hint at it?
All I know is I'll wait to get mine used.

/Bangs head on wall.

JD and 402 have said the online multiplayer will never be subsciption based.**

Unless your into the COD Elite, the glorified Excel Database of stats for your games (Which is free or paid for if you want the full version), then thats different.

When I talk to people at work they go 'I hear you have to pay to play online on the new COD'. Rather than check out and varify this, they take it as gospel.

Im expecting a load of these threads popping up all the way upto launch, like with Black Ops.

**It would be niave to assume it won't be like this forever though, im sure they've contemplated it.

You pay 100 dollars for an online experience with every game so why is there an exception to play online CoD MW3?

No it will not. You buy the game for 40 and you get everything you normally get. Elite is what you CAN pay for.

Except for all of the maps.
