Concerns raised over Modern Warfare 3 Elite maps locked to profile

With elite maps being tied to a specific profile, rather than to the game itself, many owners of Modern Warfare 3 are calling foul. A sign of DLC things to come?

As seen over on the official Call of Duty forums, users are raising the fairly concerning issue of Elite DLC being locked to a specific profile, rather to the game itself.

DLC has fast become a norm within our gaming universe, allowing legitimate users to expand on their purchased game. It seems Activision/Infinity Ward has taken this one step further though, in what seems to be a requirement to purchase this latest DLC per *profile* that plays the game. Simply put, this means the content you legally purchased is not available to other users on your console. Strangely enough, this seems to be in conflict with the terms and conditions stated on purchase.

It is possible that this is just a glitch, although an official statement has yet to be made to clarify these concerns either way.
