I can understand the reasons why other accounts cannot access the maps as they are specifically for Elite Subscribers. I understand that these other accounts are NOT subscribers and therefore shouldn't be able to have early access.

However it is a breach of the terms of service so maybe this is a loophole for those to exploit

Well hopefully the maps will become "unlocked" once they are released on Live and they lose their exclusivity. If not, then Activision are taking the absolute michael if they expect those people with multiple accounts/Xboxes to pay twice for them.

I have heard that it was an Error by them and that they were working to fix it so that other gamer tags on the SAME console (as long as they have a gold live account) can play them too....
