PlayStation 3 players get first Call of Duty Elite content

PlayStation 3-owning Call of Duty fans get their first two payoffs for joining the franchise's Elite platform today, with the release of the platform's first two Content Drops. The Liberation and Piazza maps offer a long-range sniper's playground in the militarized Central Park, and the claustrophobic corridors of an Italian seaside village turned battlezone.

Being a Sony fan, you'll likely have shut your ears whenever 360 owners start talking about how these maps play – not that they'd have deigned to tell you anyway, because everyone knows Microsofts don't talk to Sonies and vice versa. Unless these sort of petty fanboy politics don't apply to you, of course, in which case you'll know that your next Elite treat is the high-altitude Overwatch, due for PS3 release in the next few weeks.

    PC? Not even the developers know...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JODwetfioWA I think this sums it up quite nicely...

    Why exactly do people willfully pay for Call of Duty Elite?

    So you are asking why don't they just give away things? While I'm no big fan of CoD. I do understand a need to get pack on a product you crafted (be it a remake of a remake of some other remake). Elite in concept is not bad. It's how the company isn't actually fulfilling it's obligation to those who paid...and expected good content. Interesting tournaments.... Elite is worthless. Those who did pay (and aren't die hard fanboys) probably regret.

    I paid for Elite, at least I'm getting a discount on the maps. What pisses me off is that they didn't say anything about how xbox would be getting them first and that they would delay the content for so long for us ps3 users. It was a financial move, get the money from the player early before they have a chance to decide they don't want to play the game anymore. This also means that they get the money before reviews on the maps are made. So they could release the worst maps ever and not give a damn because they already got paid. So in the end, it's a bittersweet regret. Good thing I get the maps at a discount because I don't pay for Live, and they might suck - but that Live crap is ruining competition and the games industry

    I want to ask a serious question, how exactly is it a discount? For Black Ops it was 15 dollars for 4 maps and a zombie map. Together totaling 12 maps and 3 (or 4 if you include getting moon for free for some) zombie maps. In MW3 it's 50 dollars for 12 maps, 4 missions, and what was it? 2 classified items? Hardly sounds like a deal unless I'm missing something. For real, am I missing something?
