    Um… So Elite will launch on PC finally? Or it’s just free and fun but still only for console versions of the game?

    Did it not have enough subscribers? So they said fuck it, let’s just give it to them free? I know the guys that paid for that shit are extremely piss now.

    I doubt the map packs/game modes/weapons etc will be free for everyone, just the features in the elite thing itself.

    Why do people even buy mappacks? Does noone remeber that those were free once until everyone started “buying” them?

    @6 – Well, it wasn’t so long ago… All maps for World at War were free. People just want to play more of the game, that’s why they buy maps. Simply.

    Personally, I’ve never bought any mappack in any game ;p
