Activision Announces Website Hub - COD Elite:
Basically, what Bungie has been doing for 7 years, and what other gaming companies have been doing for a lesser number - A free website that collects all of your stats, saved films, pictures, match information, heatmaps, etc. Possibly something interesting related to clan organisation, but that's speculation. There will also be regularly-held contests to boost your e-peen and earn real-life rewards (e.g: IPad), and optional unspecified premium services as well.
Not very impressed personally, but this is just fluff. What we're waiting for is gameplay innovation. To quote a guy on the page:
"Yeah, this is cool and all, but Bungie has been doing this stuff since Halo 2, so it's not like it's "revolutionary" or anything. The fact that it's taken a series the size of CoD this long to mimic Halo"s community and stat tracking should be the real story here."
