Recap of Modern Warfare 3 news from Call of Duty XP
by Jordan Devore

After today's overflow of Modern Warfare 3 information, I'm starting to wish I were still into the series' competitive scene. Apologies for dropping so many separate posts on you simultaneously, but that's the wacky world of game blogging for you. (Plus, you guys totally wouldn't have read one really long post. We're on to you.)

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.
