Call of Duty: Elite's beta only opened just last month, and 2 million players have already flooded in to sign up for it, but that's obviously not big enough for Activision. After all, this is the same company that published Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2. It's bound to be a little ambitious.

Yet Dan Amrich, a public relations person for the videogame publishing giant, has stated on the blog that,
Quote
"Two million volunteers among 30 million Call of Duty players is a small amount. More would be even better. Once you’ve signed up, just watch your email inbox for an invite.”


How much is enough for Activision? They've already made over a billion dollars with Call of Duty: Black Ops and its DLCs. Can you imagine how much they're going to make back from the Call of Duty: Elite service? I don't want to say it... but I know you're all thinking it. Hint: it rhymes with reedy castards.

World Of Warcraft

13€ per month, estimated 13 million active subscribers currently. This sums up as ~169 Million Euros per month.
By 12, we get the yearly income from just one game's subscription fees = 2.028 Billion Euros.
Not to mention the induvidual cost of the game with expansions itself, and still Blizzard needs milk out more from game they have themselves ruined and smashed from core.

How is Activision different in the basics?

That's ironic considering Activision just merged with Blizzard.

Oh yes, I think Blizzard-Activision's been up for like around a year know, but I suppose this merge still hasn't been officially announced properly. I also think that if they go Official-official, many players will abandon WOW saying "You screwed me so screw your income".

WoW is a MMORPG and Elite is a MMOFPS, both are different genre's, don't compare them. That and Activision said that Diablo 3 is under Pre-production stages and will stay there, they will go into production after they release the first expansion for Starcraft 2. The last expansion for Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 will be released at the same time, I' expecting 2013 or later maybe, depends on how fast the DLC for Starcraft 2 is released.

Activision and Blizzard merged in 2009 when both Companies joined the PCGA (PC Gaming Alliance) they were supposed to work together with PCGA to announce something better, but never got around to it. They later resigned from PCGA and went on to make WoW expansions. Don't know why they quit, must have been something big.

Well Activision gave up on the PC and went for consoles, blatantly slapping that alliance in the face. But they are taking WoW's idea...this will not wend well. Where is lulzsec when u need them. XD
