Call of Duty Elite Will Cost $50 a Year for some Overhyped Nonsense

Back in May of this year Activision announced that it was going to offer a subscription based service for its CoD franchise called Call of Duty Elite.  At that time very few details were released in regards to the pay service, but since then it has been fully fleshed out.  Call of Duty Elite will cost gamers $50 a year, and depending how big of a CoD fanboy you are that price point may, or may not be worth your hard earned cash.  The geniuses at Activision think so, and so did 2 million beta testers, but are the planned benefits listed below really worth additional cash than your investment to buy the game?  I can’t answer that question for you, but I can definitely say that I’d rather buy $50 worth of bullsh*t than the fluff you get with Call of Duty Elite.  I just don’t see the value, but then again I’m not much of a Call of Duty junky anymore.  So how about you?  You’ve been having your loyalty taken advantage of…
