  • Lew

    Anyone know how the Double XP is activated? Next time I play MW3 after first using the app, or can I choose “start now”, or summin?

  • Emil Tehranchi

    I tried to access Elite today but it said that it’s not elibible for my account. What does that mean? 

  • DeXimE

    Downloaded the app but now can’t seem to find it on my XB. Where is it?

    Ah nevermind found it. It’s listed under your games…

    • Erik Hover

      Go to your Game Libary and it should be on the top of your list. Select it and it will start. To use it you will need to play MW3. But you can download and update before you play MW3.

  • Justin Wing

    emil Tehranchi –  are you on the family gold plan?

  • Abraham Wilson

    i am on gold membership and get  it’s not elibible for my account

  • Christian Valdes

    Itś not available for my country (Chile), and i think this is so unfair, because i think time is running out to become a Founder, I have the money and the MP to pay but it’s just not possible.
    this kind of things makes me think if does it worth to buy something that you can’t completely enjoy even if you have the money

  • Emil Tehranchi

    Justin Wing- yeah i think so. 

  • Tyler

    Incorrect: You’ll REQUIRE Modern Warfare 3 to use Elite at all…

    • Karl Cramer

      Funny, I participated in the beta and was just looking at my Black Ops stats. Must’ve been my imagination.

      • Zak Hayer

        It definately was your imagination. COD Elite app for the console only works once you play mw3 first on the console. COD Elite on your computer is a different story. It will bring up an error after installing and attempting to use on your console if you havent played mw3 yet.

        • Tyler

          Yeah, and that isn’t posted in this blog. It should be since you require MW3 to use the Xbox app. I know it works on PC with Black Ops, I was in the beta as well. But they neglected to mention that we require MW3 for the Xbox app.

          • Karl Cramer

            You should demand your money back. :P

        • Karl Cramer

          You are correct. I was responding to “You’ll REQUIRE Modern Warfare 3 to use Elite at all,” emphasis on the “at all” part. Elite works fine on your web browser for Black Ops.

  • Luke Es | sE ekuL

    …ELITE is the innovate new online service…

    GRAMMAR is the unrequired skill of Activision PR…

  • Abraham Wilson

    what so it come up with no egliable for this account because i do not have mw3

  • Stephen Harrison

    Well lets face it Activision don’t have anything else so they gotta get your money somehow.

  • Sergio Castaneda

    Are they going to release a WP7 app for CoD Elite like they are for Android and iOS?

  • Anonymous

    does this appear on the Xbox dash like Halo Waypoint?

  • Jordan Bartley

    I have a family account what am i supposed to do 

    • Emil Tehranchi

      Same here, don’t know what to do

  • Anonymous

    What is Call of Duty?

  • Christian Zaragoza

    I dont get it..where do we sign up to???

  • Darryl Mercer

    i would like to know why, on the game manual it states that elite is 49.99 but when i try to buy it on xbox it states that it is 56.99

  • J.A.J.G. Thiéfaine

    Small question: What happens to the content you get and download during your subscription if you don’t renew it? Will you then still be able to download it?

  • Anonymous

    I don’t have a credit card, so I was looking for info how many Microsoft Points one year account will cost, so I can buy enough MS cards. The price is 4000 MS.

    • Karl Cramer

      And what? Do the math. 4000 MS points is $50. Which is what Elite costs if you pay with a credit card.

  • Dustin Calvert

    Is Call of Duty: Elite coming to WP7?

  • Lee Mawdsley

    Elite is nice and all, but it doesn’t actually work.  They have also given no eta on when it will start to work.  Also this Elite app has completely stopped working.
    Bit of a shambles really.

  • bo2000

    Elite is a big disappointment. Even when it worked is was much less than promised. Other than getting DLC free and early there’s no reason to go premium. Also it’s lame that once again they were not able to get things running from day 1.

  • Lee Carruthers

    so, wheres the double xp thats mentioned?  I was already registered on the Elite website, so I d/loaded the app to my 360 and the only double xp I have is the 4hrs I got as my preorder bonus pack from GAME

    • Miguel Flores

      I also got tricked, just by reading mayors article mean that you REGISTER to earn, so that means you need to be lucky to win the 2 hour double XP. Please correct me if I’m mistaken.

  • Benjamin Kerensa

    This is a joke not only is the Call of Duty XP app fail whaling hardcore (site down and via Xbox live) I have got NOT any double XP!

  • Andy

    I’m I the only one who can see that The Elite Pass is really the worst thing ever to hit Gamers? If it is deemed a success how many other games will require a Premium subscription to get ALL the online functionality for the game? Do the maths a full years Xbox Live subscription is around £10/$10 less than a years subscription to Elite, and can you really afford to pay double for games in the future to get the full online experience. Ok you could at a stretch class the Elite subscription as a DLC season pass however no DLC Season pass will cost you £40/$50 in fact a DLC season pass is around half that price and the games in question gives you the Full online functionality out-of-the-box.
    Activision have a proven track record of Greed before substance in regard of the COD/MW franchise, look at the price and content you recieved on previous games in the franchise. The Elite pass is Activision just trying to by-pass the bad publicity they recieved for over-priced content of past.
