PS3 Elite subscribers furious with Activision over MW3 DLC confusion

Many Modern Warfare 3 PS3 gamers are furious about the launch timing of DLC for consoles. We all know long back that MW3 DLC will be available first for Xbox 360 gamers because of an agreement between publisher Activision and Microsoft.

Modern Warfare 3The main confusion arised when PS3 gamers with Elite Premium subscription thought that they would get the DLC at the same time as Xbox 360 gamers with Elite Premium subscription. The DLC is not yet out on PS3, and Activision is not taking the blame on themselves regarding this misleading incident.

Dan Amrich, and Activision PR agent said, “It was never one of the things listed in the official benefits chart; it was never promised by any representative of Activision, Call of Duty, Elite, or its developers. Honestly? I think gamers just convinced themselves that it would happen because they wanted it to happen. That makes sense, but it doesn’t make it true,”

Amrich further pointed out an old post that detailed the timing of DLC, “Elite subscribers will be able to access the DLC before it goes on sale to a la carte purchasers. The window of time has not been disclosed. For PS3 owners, this does not override this business deal that currently brings Call of Duty DLC to Xbox 360 first; that deal is valid through 2012. However, Elite members will get the DLC before the non-Elite members on their respective platforms,”

Did you bought Elite premium subscription thinking that you will get access to MW3 DLC first alongside Xbox 360?, and are now feeling that Activision mislead you? Let us know in the comment section below.
