Millions of you have signed up for the Call of Duty: Elite beta, which is being rolled out to Xbox 360 players over the next few weeks on an invite-only basis. The first invitations went out earlier today.

While Beachhead is pushing the community, competitive, and stat-based improving-your-game aspects of Elite, I wager most of you will be in it simply for the downloadable content that's rolled into the cost of the service. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

For those wanting to see what the fuss is about, here's a 30-minute developer walkthrough video.
