Default Next Call of Duty to have monthly fee?

IGN: Activision Hints at Call of Duty Online Plans

"It's definitely an aspiration that we see potential in, particularly as we look at different business models to monetize the online gameplay," said Tippl. "There's good knowledge exchange happening between the Blizzard folks and our online guys."

"We have great experience also on Call of Duty with the success we had on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. A lot of that knowledge is getting actually built into the Battle.Net platform and the design of that," he added. "I think it's been mutually beneficial, and you should expect us to test and ultimately launch additional online monetization models of some of some of our biggest franchises like Call of Duty."

Tippl added there is a demand from its core fanbase willing to pay for additional services and content.

"Our gamers are telling us there's lots of services and innovation they would like to see that they're not getting yet. From what we see so far, additional content, as well as all the services Blizzard is offering, is that there is demand from the core gamers to pay up for that," Tipple explained.

As if charging $70 for the game wasn't enough. The worst thing is that people will bitch and whine but still pony up for a monthly online service charge.

Um have they actually asked gamers if they are willing to pay for extra services that should be added for free? Cause I'm not willing to pay for extra maps, games modes, etc.

If the inital cost of the game was $10-$20, $5 a month would be ok if it meant consistent updates, banning hackers and such. I doubt that's their motivation, more than likely is just more profit.

There is too much "power gaming" in the FPS world. Asshats are always going to ruin it for others. Thats the great part about private servers. I can ban asshats and not worry about it.

DLC's are great and I love my FO3 ones, and cant wait for some Borderlands ones too. However, "MMOFPS" (can I trademark that?) sounds doomed to failure imo.
