And Here You Thought WotC Was Trying to Milk Their Customers

Well, WotC IS trying to constantly milk their customers by making books obsolete while still trying to claim compatibility.  Heck, they still haven't released their VTT  and I've let my Insider Subscriber status lapse a long time ago.

Still, nothing beats Activision's plans for Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 3.  Lets see, if you want to play on an XBox 360 or a PS3, you have to pay to subscribe to their networks AND Activision wants you to cough up a monthly fee to them too.  I'm not even counting the 60 bucks for the game iteself.

Hey, its a Wall Street Journal Story!


  1. I hadn't heard of Activision charging a monthly fee on top of the gold membership. That will probably keep me from getting the game.

  2. Hey, then there's in game advertising, after paying for the game.

  3. i don't think that WotC was gotten around to in game advertising...yet!

    Let's see what their VTT brings ;)

  4. Quote: "The game's previous installment...called "Call of Duty: Black Ops," was the best-selling game last year, with global retail sales of more than $1 billion during its first six weeks on shelves."

    Let's not forget that Black Ops was also loudly panned on the consoles, particularly PS3, and many of those first six week sales were returned where conditions allowed. I *HOPE* this sub nonsense doesn't go anywhere other than down.
