Bobby Kotick really doesn't seem to want to ingratiate himself to anyone apart from his bank manager. As you'll have no doubt seen thanks to our Monday's news roundup, when asked to make one hypothetical wish Aladdin-style Kotick began imagining an opportunity to squeeze even more money out of us by charging for online play. That said, he's not the only one, with THQ and, more notoriously, EA all attempting to fight the battle against pre-owned games by charging premiums to play although at least they were honest about trying to recoup losses from the second-hand market. Kotick appears to believe he's driven by altruism. We've already covered some of this ground in Game Buzz, but what do you guys and girls think? Would you have been willing to pay a subscription to play Modern Warfare 2 online? Will it affect your purchase of Black Ops if multiplayer requires a premium? Cast your votes and let us know.
