PS3 Fans, you’ll get your turn next month when the PlayStation Network receives their Stimulus Package. The original deal had Microsoft having exclusive maps for 30 days before the PS3. What money can buy… I guess happiness and maps! For now, let the Xbox fanboys gloat for these 30 days. Afterall, I’m sure there’ll be bugs that need to be patched up. Which will leave the game flawless for the PS3. Who am I kidding, can the PS3 please get the maps now?
