Activision Enforces Call of Duty Elite After Removing Free Videos


When the world learned that Activision wasnít joking about charging yearly fees for additional services related to the Call of Duty series, reality set in. Games might be overpriced, and DLC may have its own problems, but yearly fees are a whole different animal. The expensive pricing is one problem, but now the effects of Call of Duty Elite are beginning to affect the market in even more disastrous ways.

A popular YouTube user who goes by the name of XboxAhoy has had several of his Modern Warfare 3 videos removed from his account after a conflict with Activision. XboxAhoy was recently contracted for Activisionís new Call of Duty Elite service, and has stated that heíll produce videos specifically for the serviceís Elite TV feature along with making some lighter but free videos for his YouTube subscribers. After only a couple weeks of the game being out, all of his videos related to Modern Warfare 3 have been completely removed from his profile. Those who have enjoyed his Call of Duty tips and tricks for years now are now forced to pay for Call of Duty Elite.

YouTube has been an excellent resource for gaming walkthroughs, tips, and tricks, and to think that Activision would prefer gamers spend subscription fees to access such content is rather disgusting, but not particularly surprising when you look at their track record. Sadly, Call of Duty Elite has been so popular that registration was broken for its first week, meaning Activision has been rewarded for their implementation and will probably find ways to integrate it into all of the series under their umbrella. Of course, one of the best ways to find tips and tricks is use our Modern Warfare 3 trophy guide, which Activision canít take down.

Bottom line is that as long as enough people are willing to pay for material it won't be available for free. Elite was thrown up against the wall and it not only stuck but became part of the wall.
