A step in the wrong direction

1 min read


Come, come Activision. This is the type of news that we don’t want to hear.

Welcome to something called “Day One Advantage” that will be offered along with COD 5. What is it? It’s another typical move by a large games publisher to rake in even more money.

“Day One Advantage” is going to be an optional extra that you can purchase online that allows the buyer to gain experience at a more rapid pace than those who have not. While this won’t necessarily make the largest difference in the world, it’s a step in the wrong direction and just another insult to online gamers.

I really think that COD5 is looking like an impressive title, so it’s disappointing to see that these large companies are still pulling little money making tricks like this.
