No Online Pass Says Activision

We can all sigh with relief. Rumors have gone around saying that Activision will be charging players to play the Call of Duty multiplayer by introducing an online pass, but according to CEO Bobby Kotick.
“We can do some of these things that EA and others have done,” Kotick had told game site Joystiq. “We actually don’t think it’s in the best interest of the gamer, and so we’ve chosen not to. We’re not doing anything to suppress used games today. The best way to keep people engaged in your game experience is keep giving them more great content.”
But, do still expect expensive DLC’s, but mind you, would you rather have an online pass or expensive DLC? DLC for me any day! But what are the reasons to expensive DLC? Game-trade in’s of course! Activision wants to profit from used games, meaning we all suffer, not just those who pay less.
“I think we’ve generally tried to do things like encourage our customers to used-game sales, probably more so than our competitors. But you know, we’re very mindful of what’s happening macroeconomically and I think that that plays a role when we’re thinking about the price of our content.”
Are you relieved of this news? Let us know!
