We’re hearing word that there is a bug in the Stimulus Package that Microsoft is currently working to fix via patch.
“Modern Warfare 2,” which today’s release builds on, was the most successful video game launch in history, pulling in $310 million in just 24 hours. That surpasses one-day records for movies, music, and all other kinds of entertainment. With so much riding on this game, Xbox Live support deployed quickly.
“The engineers are already engaged and working on the MW2 Stimulus Pack problem,” wrote Xbox Live’s director of programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb on Twitter. “They’ll get [this] corrected.”
Later, Major Nelson reported on Twitter that “The Stimulus Package needs a Title Update and it didn’t go out properly. We’re pushing it out now – it won’t be long.”
UPDATE 2 - Our code has been given away. Thanks for all who entered and keep an eye out for future giveaways! I’m talking to you, PS3 owners of Modern Warfare 2!
