This is good news! There's also a mistake in the title...
it should be: "YAY!!!, No Call of Duty Elite PC Beta After All!

You people realize that Call of Duty Elite is not a game right? Thought I would throw this out there for the people that thought it was :)

lol who cares!? I'll go play black ops and it'll be the same thing just different levels. why? They havent updated their game engine since 2005! Yeah that's right 2005! Their excuse? "it takes a long time to develop a new game engine and perfect it"... so they'd rather suck you dry 60 bucks at a time with games that are almost identical to the one the year before and call it something cool sounding so you still buy it.

Dont forget that CoD is becoming increasingly easier by every iteration. Soon you wont need to aim. All you need to do is press a button and the game will play it self.

Ps. PC gets the shaft again. Activision will fall behind in the loop wich is a thumbs up in my book!

If AMD and Nvidia want to stay in the high-end graphics market they really need to be greasing game developer's wheels. They need to be pushing them to never give up on the PC market. If pirating is the concern, then solve it. If all game devs stopped making games for PCs today there wouldn't really be a need to build robust graphics cards. AMD/Nvidia stand to lose a lot. I would even throw in CPU and mobo mankers too. They all stand to lose a lot if game consoles are the only gaming outlet.

Sure AMD/Intel can put their cards in consoles but consoles are updated only every couple years or so. Plus, a console is a flat price where individual graphics cards are priced based on models and some are more expensive than a console itself.

I thought they used the Unreal 3 engine. Anywho, a new version of Unreal put out screen shots a few months back. Perhaps the latest game will take advantage of the latest engine.

What a sad state of affairs. I still enjoy playing CoD2 (PS2) and I have
IV and World at War unopened that I'm looking forward to, but it's a shame
the franchise seems to be slipping. I was a big MoH fan but was really
annoyed at the on-rails nature of Rising Sun; a friend told me to try CoD,
never looked back. I have the first three for PS2, 4th and 5th for PC.

So has MoH resurrected itself these days?

The only other games I've liked quite as much as CoD2 are Mercenaries,
Black and Stalker.

I really wanna make a snarky comment in response to this, but like many PC gamers I'm so tired of FPS games trying to be ultra-serious I don't know whether to thank or criticize Activision for this one.

amen to that. cod4 was the last of the truly competitive shooters and was the game that truly infested the gaming community with low cost cheat subscriptions (helios, aa, etc). it spread like wildfire and infected all fps games on the pc. if you think youre getting cheated online these days youre probably right.

I should clarify my personal bias: I play these games for the single-player
experience, not multiplayer. So perhaps you meant the multiplayer aspects of
WaW offered nothing new over CoD4?

Every time I try to get into online FPS play I just cant. I know im not that great because I dont have a lot of practice but getting killed every 5 seconds does not allow me to get any practice and so I never get better. Also its not fun at all and I do sometimes wonder how the hell someone saw me so damn fast and managed to kill me so quick. Im sure its part cheating and part people who play way to much lol but it sure does make it hard to pick this part of the games up as a new player :(

I'm a COD pc /BF pc player gamer and i don't care if elite (pc-account) is later then 360 or PSN. It's just a game games are for fun not for ganking people.
And to all fan boys: If you say "Ooh COD is better" or "BF3 rules" quit playing and commit suicide you're all pathetic...
