MS charges them for releasing the camos on the marketplace. I guess they wanted to survey which one people wanted the most, and maximized their earnings.

Actually like most distribution services MS would take a percentage of sales from all items bought through Xbox live, MS wouldn't say "oh pay us $3000 to release that camo." So in reality both trey arch and MS would probably profit more if they were all released.

But this is a business. Treyarch probably doesn't want to flood the market with many camps and by having a vote they can increase consumer participation and release the most popular camos which should sell the best. Supply and demand, business 101

I thought it was the other way around (probably for patches instead). I heard they charge DEVs $20,000 (something like that) for every patch, with the first one being free. Of course this is nothing compared to what they make, but business is business.

You can pretty much guarantee that Activision will still make the 2 losing camos available right before DLC4...
