Here we go again folks. The newest map packs for Modern Warfare 2 will arrive on June 3rd. Not so fast. Again these maps will be exclusive to the Xbox 360 for 30 days. Similar to the Stimulus Package, these five (5) new maps will be the hot item for 360 fans while the PC and PS3 owners suffer.
Here’s the next round of Xbox 360 fanboys vs. PS3 fanboys. Microsoft paying Activision is ruining the market for First Person Shooters. The map packs will be priced at $14.99 increasing the money spent on MW2 to $90 including DLC and the game itself.
There will also be two upcoming weekends of Double XP. The first will be May 28th followed the next week beginning June 4th. Double XP and new maps come together for the second time in a row.
