Ponder this.

One of the premium membership features of COD Elite is ability to have all of the DLC's quickly and free. But until now, the PS3 and PC players have had to wait for a month before getting content originally released on the Xbox 360.

With this in mind, does this now mean PC players who purchase a premium subscription for Elite now get the DLC content at the same time as Xbox 360 users?

I'm well aware of the obvious contract with Microsoft.

But still, from what has been explained about ELITE so far, one can only assume that when they say ELITE members get content first, they really mean they get it first. Including PC members.

i have been thinking about this too. however i can see the contract still holding up and the 360 still getting everything first.
