Call of Duty Elite 'Premium' gets priced at $49.99 a year
by Nick Chester

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.

Review: Jetpack Joyride photo
Review: Jetpack Joyride
by Nick Chester

With so many "runner" games on iOS, another one is certainly a hard sell. But there's a reason these games are so popular. It's a simple concept -- a character moves continuously from left to right at an ever-increasing speed, the player's goal to jump, slide, or whatever to avoid obstacles. The goal: get as far as possible.

Halfbrick's latest, Jetpack Joyride, is yet another in a long line of these endless runner games. But don't let that turn you off. Between responsive controls, colorful sprites that are easy on the eyes, and a clever rewards system that will keep players coming back for more, Jetpack Joyride is comfortably the best in its class.
