Well it’s about time. The long awaited announcement for Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package has been made. On Tuesday, May 4th the rest of the MW2 Community will receive the much anticipated Stimulus Package for the PlayStation 3 and PC. PS3 user’s will finally get their dosage of the 5 additional maps for $15 (two maps are from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare).
What does this mean for PC and PS3 gamers? Hopefully the bugs that were rolled into the Xbox 360 Stimulus Package will be ironed out. We’ve posted pics of the maps here, so be sure to get to know them before you play them. Also, Daniel reviewed the Stimulus Package here, so give that a read as well.
So the final question is, what took so long? Microsoft struck a deal with Activision/Infinity Ward to gain access to the MW2 Downloadable content (DLC) exclusively for 30 days. Speculation says to persuade more gamers who have both systems to choose the Xbox 360 version instead. What it really did? Pissed off PS3 and PC gamers alike. Console exclusives are just plain ridiculous and I bet Infinity Ward/Activision know that. Money can swing deals, and hopefully this will not continue for future DLC.
We’ve read complaints in other posts about the pricing for MW2 Stimulus Package. Complaints we’ve hard are “Why should I pay again for two (2) maps I currently own in COD4?”. The following are from our previous posts…
Zyngaa said “Yea, I believe 15$ is a bit much for 5 maps, I mean, hell I payed 70$ for the game, and another 60$ for xbox live, that’s a lot just to play a game, but in the end it’s worth it, this game is KICK ASS, but I dont think Ill be buying the new maps, I have enough into the game already………..”
$$$$ said “$15 is a lot considering only 3 are original maps. But I will buy because it’s the cool thing to do and everyone else is doing it.”
Zitty21 said “These look great.
This is well worth the price, this game is awesome.
Tons of fun, and now the game will be even better.
Believe me, this is coming from a cheap guy who is horrible at this game. LOL!
Most people spend $15 on frigging Burger King, and the only thing you get out of that is a stomach ache and some quality time on the bowl. Spend the $$$ and I have no doubt that nobody will have regrets. I for one can not wait to get killed over and over and over again on all of these maps. Finally, If i can spend $15 on anything in my life that i enjoy doing, that will make it better, then i would sign up for it in a second.”
So what’s your take???
