Call of Duty Elite premium video show hits this Friday

Soldiers square off in Modern Warfare 3 for first episode of weekly series exclusive to shooter social network's paid tier.

Call of Duty Elite's launch was fraught with issues, but the service is finally operational for both paid and free members. Now it's time for the premium perks to start differentiating the two tiers of the service, starting with original video content.

Naturally, Friday Night Fights will debut at noon.

Activision today announced that Call of Duty Elite's first original programming will be coming to the service this Friday, November 25. Executive produced by Ridley Scott and Tony Scott's RSA Films, the new weekly series is called Friday Night Fights and will pit real-life rivals against each other in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 matches. The first episode will see the US Army go up against the US Navy.

Episodes of Friday Night Fights will premiere on Fridays at noon Pacific time and will be available on demand after their initial broadcast. All episodes can be accessed by premium members via the Call of Duty Elite program guide.

Elite provides players with gameplay statistics, video sharing, and clan support features for free, but those who shell out for the $50 annual subscription will also receive all downloadable content released in the year, as well as exclusive video content and other perks. Activision recently reported that more than 4 million free and premium members have registered for Call of Duty Elite to date.

Releasing games that have made millions and broke records, not enough. Bombard gamers with map packs, making people spend twice then what the game is worth, still not enough. If people want to make money, I have nothing against that, but there has to be a point were you THANK your supporters. Just look at Valve, Rockstar, and Bungie the great deals they give people.

@Fezzinator101 you can call them that but if you was a company who paid money to produce something and ended up on free service you be calling them up telling them to delete it to

I don't know why people are bashing this service "All dlc for this year will be paid for" So if they release about 4 dlc priced at 800 Microsoft points (10$) each... that's 40$ You also get exclusive video and other perks

everybody has their likes and dislikes personally i like mw3 even with its many faults its still fun to kick back and enjoy after a days work.$50 doesnt bother me considering if theres probably gonna be 3 dlc's thats $45 dollars and you get what videos that will be a laugh to watch,competitions and more for what another $5? the fact is as much as you like call of duty there will be haters and as much as you hate call of duty there will be more people that like it and will pay for everything that it produces.i do truly look forward to the day a new,refreshing and innotive game claims call of dutys crown but theres nothing iv seen that is ready to do that. thats 'my' opinion and view before all the battlefield fanboys get on their soapbox telling how im wrong and what everyone should like

@Chico_Azteca Maybe Activision figure out that if we see the videos of walkthrough and didn't play it = No Money for Them! xD But I'm just guessing really because, I just look at the videos on youtube so I don't need to buy the game. :D

This is good news for Elite subscribers. As for the actual show, I hope our military boys spend more time practicing killing real people than they spend time playing games. After all, we depend on them to fight real wars, not fictional ones. We should offer much more entertainment for our warriors than just games. I have read numerous posts about our soldiers playing games even in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our military just isn't doing enough for their recreation. Fighting is hard work and should be rewarded accordingly.

@BryanParksSuper "Come up with a new FPS that will have people hooked." Why would they do that when this game just broke every record ever? Obviously people are still hooked on CoD, so they're not going to stop making it because you're sick of it. I enjoy the CoD games, but I'm not above criticizing them. They are definitely pumped out year after year with little improvement, but if you can't understand why they pump them out like that you need not look any further than the sales figures. If people keep buying them, they'll keep making them. And to each his own, but I kinda thought the last Metal Gear game was a crapfest. I know it has it's diehard enthusiasts, but I'm not among them.

It's company's like Valve and Rockstar that still give me hope for the videogame industry. It's sad that Activision has never shown appreciation to it's fans for breaking records with the MW series.

so, assuming its cod we can sefely say they repeat the same episode over and over again and slightly change the brightness of the video or something and cod fanboys will see it as a completely new episode ?

COD sucks and Activision refuses to let it Die. Metal Gear Solid Series is far superior in everyway to the games made today. Killzone 3 is awesome,Batman is the Bomb. These games are better than COD. They need to let it go. Come up with a new FPS that will have people hooked. Enough with COD.

@noble95x If MW3 felt like the others I would have a 2.0 KDR. MW3 does indeed suck. It's a shame u can't see how different it actually is.

noble95x

@BryanParksSuper. what makes mw3 "bad?" its has an amazing new and fun campaign. new survival spec ops mode(but not as fun as zombies)...but the multiplayer is the best and most in depth part, it has new guns new modes and epic maps.... the only bad part is the graphics...it has the old IW engine that they have been using for 6 years. but the engine is new and updated from black ops. what made you "return" /\/\\/\/ 3?

I would get more for my money if I took $50, bought a pregnancy test, peed on it, and hoped for it to come up postive then pay for this crap. And I'm a guy lol.

BryanParksSuper

Ha no thanx. MW3 was so bad I sold it within 5 hours of having it delivered to my house. Batman,Uncharted 3, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and MGS 4 are better games than this latest COD. I will never buy anougher COD ever again.

i got a better idea.... If i feel like watching people play video games how about i pay and go watch a game of Starcraft II... Y'know... something that takes a bit of forethought and skill to play... I know. Totally outlandish concept right?
