Sign up for the Call of Duty Elite beta now

As Activision steps into the bold new future of online social stuff with Call of Duty Elite, it's giving you the opportunity to see that future in ... the nearer future. A page just opened offering signups for a closed beta.

You just need your birthdate, your console preference (which may require some soul-searching!) and your email address. Oh, and you need a copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops, the game to which the beta is tied. But you probably have one of those already.
