After today's overflow of Modern Warfare 3 information, I'm starting to wish I were still into the series' competitive scene.

We're on to you.)

While the core services of Activision's Call of Duty Elite will be free, players who invest in a "Premium" membership will be a bit more elite than your usual elite.

Priced at $49.99 a year, Premium members will get access to every piece of downloadable content available for Modern Warfare 3 through the year. Activision has already confirmed that this will consist of 20 new pieces of content, although it didn't go into any more detail. Purchased standalone, that same content would cost players $60, said Activision's Eric Hirshberg.
