im kinda mad if this is true. i heard that if you dont put in the code that comes in the mw3 hardened edition (for cod elite) then you dont get acess to the weapon skin, founder tag, etc. please tell me that this is not true beacuse im not even getting my Hardened edit until the 15th. if its true fuck you Acti/IW/beachead

It is true, it's to get people to get elite early on. That's why it's called founders status. I'm just glad they gave till the 13, could have easily said you had to our it in on the 11th

who cares. You pay $30.00 for camo and skins and some founder status? What a scam!

It'll be a DLC like a month after game release. I wouldn't worry.

Some people who ordered it online won't get it by then. Also, I've heard that not matter what, people who get hardened will get founder status.

Seems like the most logical thing would be to offer founder to all of the hardened edition consumers as they are essentially prepaying for elite (and just about everywhere is sold out of them) and to offer founder until the 13th for those that are buying elite separate. Though not everything in the game industry is logical or fair to consumers.

Hopefully I get my game before then, I hate things with expiration dates (codes, trials, etc.).

Kind of related, I just found out that you can purchase CoD Elite from the Xbox marketplace for 4000 pts. I previously thought you had to pay $50 to Activision or somewhere else to get Elite.

(Since I just bought a 4000 pt card for around $30, that means I can actually get Elite for just $30. I wasn't planning on getting Elite at all, but $30 for 4 map packs is 50% off!)

Do you have a link to that? A buddy of mine is looking for it. I can't find it.

Sorry, I should've used the future tense. According to Major Nelson, it should be on the marketplace on Monday (under Game Add-Ons):

If you pre-ordered the game, how will you not get it until more than a week after release? That doesn't make any sense.

Ironically, it was the only thing I remembered from reading that because I thought it was odd that Elite releases on Monday while the game doesn't release til Tuesday.

I suppose they do it so there's no issues with people getting the game and not being able to set up their Elite accounts, due to time differences. For example, its only what...4pm Monday afternoon on the West Coast when Brits get the game at midnight release?

If you notice, they never mentioned mappacks. They did mention all DLC which is likely camos and other dumb things. I have yet to hear them specifically say maps!

I'm pretty sure they've mentioned map packs a while back, it's definitely part of the DLC.
