Activision has finally revealed how ELITE will work with Black Ops 2. First and foremost, there will not be a premium option. All the features of ELITE with Black Ops 2 will be free for everyone.

Player HQ — Track Call of Duty: Black Ops II performance with rich game statistics, including enhanced match information such as heat maps and recent match data; track challenges and extensively modify your classes like never before using Treyarch’s new Pick 10 Create-a-Class system.

Clan HQ — Join an existing clan or start your own, invite friends and then take part in Call of Duty: Black Ops II clan competitions with cool digital prizing.

Zombies Support — For the millions of Zombies fans out there, now you can track your Zombies personal statistics and compare it to other players’ around the world.

Call of Duty Elite TV — Launching with tablet support with Call of Duty: Black Ops II, the new Call of Duty Elite TV will deliver a renewed community focus featuring developer tips and strategy programming, custom class overviews and more.

Social Sharing and Notifications — With Call of Duty Elite‘s new notification system, you can stay updated with what is going on in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, as well as communicate directly with your clan.

Call of Duty Elite now offers players the ability to connect, compete and improve like never before. Call of Duty Elite features for the blockbuster game Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which launches worldwide on November 13, 2012, will be free. Call of Duty Elite for Call of Duty: Black Ops II will include a host of new and improved features, including both Player and Clan HQ, Zombies support, Call of Duty Elite TV, social sharing and notifications, and more!

They have also confirmed that the ELITE Tablet App will launch with Black Ops 2.

The DLC will be available for Xbox/PS3/PC, first on Xbox, but ATVI says, “Our goal is to bring the Season Pass and DLC to the Wii U also, but it’s a new system and we need a bit more time to work out the details with Nintendo.”

Elite will be only for Xbox and PS3 at launch. Hirshberg says Activision is “evaluating options to bring Elite services to the PC and Wii U.”

in other words - we don't think that pc players (if there are any) would care about more useless glitter on an already overpriced un-substanced console port.

get real activision - put some substance into the game instead of grinding out the same unenthusiastic button mashing and scripted cutscenes. Even the fanboys on the consoles are starting to not give a flying sex snake about your titles as they watch the franchise gasping death rattles as it staggers onward with yet another uninspiring money grab

being a former PC player i can see how your saying "pc players wouldnt care about useless glitter" maybe for PC players it would be useless glitter because of all the mods you use to make. but for console players thats a step forward. there are alot of people i see on xbox that love the clan support in Elite and all the clan tournaments, people love to prove them selves. and now in black ops 2 all those features are going to be free thats really good, we pay enough as it is just to play online. i know i know all you PC players can cry all you want waaaa[cry] but being a xbox player we win again. and PC players have to accept the fact... their is no more cod for PC...[lol]

HAHA - you can keep telling yourself that - and really it has less to do with being a PC player and actually "seeing" what you are getting for your dollar.

If you feel comfortable handing over your wallet for a regurgitated storyline, rehashed cinematics and gameplay that hasn't changed or improved (in some cases the gameplay has worsened) then i guess what they say about a fool and his money are true.

CIP #1 - this iteration of CoD multiplayer has been stated as not having ANY servers - and will rely entirely on matchmaking....have fun with a clan match now as you will not get to choose who you play with or where you play.

CIP #2 - CoD Elite stumbled so horribly that it was deemed a non-money maker and that's why they are now giving it away for free

CIP #3 - If you feel you are winning by paying to play the same game (reskinned) then it really shows that kids will always be fascinated by sparkly keys jingling in front of their face - again the fool and his money is an apt quote. If we do the math - you pay $60-$70 (if you just buy the normal retail version without any of the "sparkly") & you pay $10/month for Xbox live...to play the same "60 frames per second multiplayer" that [Activision] self admittedly said hasn't changed and hasn't been innovative for 5 years now.

if you want to discuss facts - do so - but a console vs pc argument here will not be won by consoles. In 3 years when you are still playing the same regurgitated title you will still be in denial about the inferiority of the 10+ year old box that even Microsoft is walking away from

confused... i think you made your self look really stupid? CIP #1 we have been playing on matchmaking since for ever that is nothing new to us and we still have private match making... nothing new which works great for us and sucks for PC players... CIP #2 that is also really good for us that they sucked at making money cause now its free to us like it should have been... you got no where with any of that so far. and the only thing you have right so far out of that whole rant was CIP #3 and yes we do pay to play but it goes way beyond that. xbox offers a whole verity of things that is worth paying that 10$ a month although i dont use all the features xbox offers but i dont see you bashing on WoW players for paying monthly for a game when they get nearly nothing offered to them like xbox does??? i dont see you bashing on people that have netflix?? so im sorry cod for PC has taken a dump over the years and they do way more support for console players now. but no need to go into "oh you pay 10$ a month HAHA child!" because in reality thats life now... you have to pay monthly for stupid crap and xbox lives up to what they offer you. did you not pay monthly for those servers on PC? okay thought so. you gotten no where with what you said. [moon]

and sorry this isnt a PC vs Xbox argument or was trying to get into, this was a cod PC vs cod Xbox conversation i started. so dont get anything twisted.

OK - let me make this more simple for you to understand.

Unless they have come up with some way of making matchmaking work like clan servers did, then this isn't going to be workable for any sizeable community / clans. Im thinking about playing with certain rules, meeting at certain time on the same server, etc etc. Just because you [console market] have been spoon fed poo-poo and have now developed a taste for it - doesn't mean that it is pure/good/right - it really is still poo-poo and you [the console player] have settled for (less)

Bully for you that you finally get Elite for free...which by the way was similarly free when PC players ran their own servers and ran simple stat tracking programs...(they ran in html queried from the server log....ooooohhhhhh) Again - you [the console player] are excited by something that was always there for the pc gamer.

And i really don't know how to reply to your justification of paying a monthly fee to turn your console on...

If you choose to subscribe to a service like netflix (which provides you movies etc) or subscribe to a specific game (in your words WoW) then that is one thing but to pay to turn your console on and justify it it by what? because it delivers what? the ability to play a game that you purchased? ooo - good delivery of ....what? the internet that I've already paid for - thanks!

when CoD was relevant and server rentals were available for both PC and console players (ya - you [the console player] had to rent them too) it was because you could actually "do" something to them

you [the console player] keep setting the bar lower and soon you'll regress to paying to watching sparkly keys jangle

face it (and this is FROM console players) - CoD is dead on its feet and from the sound of things if you keep holding all of your hopes on the next CoD...you are going to be really disappointed when the execs pull the plug on it. A game can only live on hype without substance for so long (and THAT is the core of this discussion)

oh yeah i pay 10$ to turn on my xbox... how are you going to judge xbox if you clearly havnt played it? cause no one is that stupid... you clearly dont know what xbox has, i can still play my games without live. and you still havnt proved anything all you are saying is PC is better. okay no sh it genius you can do anything with a PC... [rolleyes] and this whole clan thing your talking about. let me try to explain this one to you are you ready??? when you go in live you are in your own lobby and then i invite my friends to join in my game and we are what we called "partyed up" you still following me??? okay then we select a game we want to play and play as a clan. to do clan battles its as simple as using Elite now which is cool. "i dont even do this whole clan thing but alot of people do im just trying to explain this to you" you then go into private matches and play as a clan. there are also things like www.gamebattles.com and where teams and vs each other for prizes ect ect. you still have not proved to me yet not once that cod is better for PC now. AND THATS WHAT THE WHOLE THING IS ABOUT. but your just changing the topic to "glittery stars" because thats all us xbox players see when we pay 10$ to just turn on our xbox... i cant even get into a good debate with you since you dont even know what your talking about... and yes cod is dying all games do, but as of the moment its doing alright with its changes, and i think the competitiveness put into black ops 2 is going to be fun. so please dont write back about "glittery stars" or w.e unless you are going to stay on topic. because as of now consoles > pc FOR COD. thats what i was talking about since start and my only subject so please write something back sensible to the subject next time or dont say anything at all cause your just making a fool of your self.

OK you immature douche. i have tried to talk respectfully to you and you are continually skirting the issue and by trying to talk down to me insist on raising my ire!

you pay to play the game you bought by having to pay for xbox live - if you cant figure that out then you obviously ate too many paint chips when you were young or got dropped on your head one too many times

i have an xbox. i have an xbox 360. i have a ps2. i have a wii. i have a pc. when you decide to judge someone or try to knock them down - make sure you know what and who you are talking about.

you say that CoD is better for the consoles now than for the PC? No poo-poo Sherlock - did your mommy help you figure that out? could that be because the developmental and market focus for the CoD series ever since MW2 has been for the consoles? Could it be that rather than injecting new creativity into their marketing scheme they decided to milk the easy market of console players who don't have enough sense to not pay for the same game more than once? Could it be both? - pretty sure!

so far my rebuttals to your stupidity have been spot on and all you can do is say that i have made a fool of myself and toot the "console is better horn"

if you could read, through your "consoles are better" rage, what i had written you would see that i wrote of what Activision has alluded to with this iteration of CoD and that your "oh-so-cocky" self-described way of gaming is NOT going to be included as an option in the multiplayer this time. Activision have suggested that there will NOT be any lobby for you to "party up" in this iteration of MP. They will rely solely on matchmaking for the creation of gaming groups.

of course you would know all that if you researched at all what you blathered on about with such professed knowledge.

heres a conspiracy theory for you - maybe even Activision has gotten tired of mailing in these CoD titles every year and have tried to kill the game from the inside - by just seeing how much you idiots will actually pay for the poo-poo they grind out after eating a beefy burrito - you prove the marketing dept's point in that you would buy any piece of poo-poo if it was labelled CoD - and that you would pay extra for it if it was a "Premier Edition" or whatever crap they call it this time around

okay i honestly stopped reading your whole rage after "you say that CoD is better for the consoles now than for the PC? No poo-poo Sherlock - did your mommy help you figure that out?" then i sorta just skimmed threw it and just stopped. this isnt facebook im not going to have an E war with you i stated whats true and you went on about saying how PC is better like i even care? duhhh its better what am i soft? i said PC sucks for cod now and you took it to a whole different level and you can keep crying[cry] about it but im not reading about something i already know. sorry you find me a douche because of what i stated is completely true but come on... cut the sh it no lol need for you to cry [lol][lol][lol]

and whats funny is you moderators close topics like this before it gets out of hand and look how you escalated the whole problem from start and by the way i dont have to be 10 to be playing xbox lock the topic and stop your b itching you were wrong from start.
