  1. Always is amusing to read the poor people complaining about some points and use excuses like “oh I don’t play multi player because of the cheaters (which there is, I would never deny that) or “the price is too high” (in other words mommy won’t get me points). Either too poor to get a point card or mommy won’t by you points, but damn stop with the bs excuses. If it’s too much then get an actual damn job instead of playing games all day so it won’t be “too much”. I hate playing with generic bastards when someone invites one to the group because they always hold the whole team back that actually can afford the maps back and stuck playing on the old ones. Seriously, get off the game with all your bs excuses.

  2. I hope nobody (@Doh Ray Egon i.e.)took my coment as a comply or as an insult to MW players. It’s just it feels sad to me seeing how people has such an unstopable urge that makes they act mindlessy (flooding support lines, etc.) or coming to forums/blogs to flame (both supporters and haters do).
    What is cristal clear is that activision are nowadays kings of controversy in videogames. Can’t believe how even neutrals to MW like chiruno, who hardly linked 3 words together in his/hers very first posts is now openly insulting. Things like that is what I meant I feel sorry for.
    Besides, thanks Major for the heads up 🙂 I’m already a follower both of you and xboxsupport (under a slighly different nickname), so thats why I was freaked out about all the buzz (panic I must say) concerning to that given DLC.
    Now I only hope to read a single coment reviewing the actual content of that download, not just about pricing or other users’ -insert offending stuff here-
    All in all, this release looked like a mess. Cheers 🙂

  3. @Real Xebec: While i agree the price seems a bit steep…. its not out of line by comparison to halo or gears…. if 3 maps is 800 ($3.33 a map) then 5 should be in the 1200-1400 range…. now as to the quality of the maps or if they are truly worth the $15 price tag ($3 a map)… that i cant say… i own MW2 (can with my new 360) but its still in the wrapper.

  4. “or do you like going into electronics shops and pointing at TVs whil cryin, ‘I’m not paying that much for a TV when I can get a black and white one for half of that, and I only have to pay half the TV liecense, and I’m better off.'”

    Your analogy is flawed. We are saying that we won’t pay 50% more for the same black and white TV we bought before. I’m pretty sure I make more than enough to purchase this map pack, as do many others on here. We just choose not to. Also, you might want to check into anger management.

  5. When you’re all done crying while holding onto the only points you have while shouting at a Map Pack that won’t talk back, consider calming down for next week when a new Arcade game might be good. If it’s Jet Set Radio though I’d fap until my arm fell off.

  6. So… your a dude? Weird.

    Anyway, the price point is too high. I don’t care if your a millionaire or live off welfare, the crap is just too pricey. The point is not how much money you HAVE it is the value you see in what you buy with that money. There are several people posting here who just cannot grasp that concept. $15 for 3 new maps? GO FOR IT. Just don’t be SHOCKED when map packs start coming out at $20 a pop. I won’t be.

    Bottom line: It is expensive even if your the Queen of England. You can buy it or not, I don’t care. But don’t come here and act like these maps are priced reasonably, your only lying to yourself. We all pay the same price and we all get the same thing, so it really does not matter how much YOU make. Value vs Cost. Not, I can afford it vs I can’t afford it. I am pretty sure everyone who plays XBL and their mother could find some way to cough up $15 for this, but that is NOT THE POINT.

  7. There was an article over at Kotaku awhile back that quoted Activision’s analysts as saying that they would have sold just as well at $20 instead of $15.
    What Activision is doing is testing the waters. They’ll continue to raise prices as high as they can go until people no longer purchase enough to make it viable.
    The majority of people that complain about the price pay it anyway. The folks that put down and demean others who say they won’t purchase them, calling them poor or telling them to get a job, are most likely just trying to rationalize their purchase to themselves.

  8. @TG kolz4ever, you’re being ignorant. It has nothing to do with being “poor”. Most people value their money. If someone were selling a bottle of water for $5, would you buy it? No, because it’s not worth $5. If you question the price, does it make you poor? Absolutely not. Stop being a douche. People who talk down to people like you’re doing are always the people with issues.

  9. @I DLord I
    What gave you the impression that chiruno99 wasn’t a guy?

    Anyway the three posts above say it best. I’ve said it before, I don’t care if people cough up the money for this type of stuff, I personally don’t see it as worth it but it doesn’t affect me. However, I’ll not be too impressed if, due to the ‘success’ of sales for these packs, other companies jump on the bandwagon and begin to charge similar amounts for similar content.

  10. Let’s see…this map pack or Worms 2 + Trials HD + 240 extra points…

    I’ll definitely spend my money elsewhere.

    However, they sure know how to get money out of these maps. I applaud them for it. Capitalism at its best. I won’t buy it…but I also wouldn’t buy it for 800 pts. Most people who would spend the 800 pts have already spent 1200. Smart pricing on their part.

  11. So they are asking 1/2 the price of the whole game for 2 map packs that only contain 6 new maps and some old maps from COD4? Rip off!!

  12. Which developer should to write regarding the map pack prices being outrageous? Do I write IW or Activision? Is MS driving the prices up? How come Treyarch can give you maps AND gametype expansions for 800 MS Points? I hope Treyarch isn’t forced to follow the same model. They’ll loose me too. I already don’t like Activision for how they handled the IW split.

  13. Is our economy not bad? Obviously not if we can all afford to waste $15 a map pack. I think they should be $1.25 a map. So the overall price would be $6.25.

  14. Haven’t played MW2 since 12/19/2009 the multiplayer was plagued with problems. I can’t beleive they charged 1200 for 5 maps on pack 1 and they are doig it again with map pack 2 with 5 more maps. Before the 360 and the XBL marketplace maps where alot cheaper like a $1.00-$1.50 per map mabey less sometimes, more at other times. But with impluse buyers outnumbering non-impluse buyers they will just keep costing more, and more. BTW check out

  15. Who’s discussing it? Oh, right. Picture and avatar are both female, I was merely surprised the person is male. The weather is nice here, too.

  16. With the release of the resurgance pack I hoped the stimulus pack would drop in price so I was willing to buy it… but it’s still 1200 MSP, which I honestly think is a ridiculous price for 5 maps. I can still play the game online without both map packs, but I am currently hooked on blur, anyways. Let’s hope we’ll see a price drop soon…

  17. you guys know its not ms or major fault for the pricing right? its up the to devs/ pubs they make the price only thing is ms make them pay a small fee on storage for the addon its good thing we dont pay for that yah it mite be added to the price but at least its not monthly…

    so dont give the blunt force drama to major complain to activison thoughs guys email them go on there forums etc or if you want to play dirty find a way to brake them and forcing them to lower the price. yah yah it mite be illegal for them to say but just wish they brake down the pricing so we know what we paying for like how much percent gos where just to make people and my self understand why its so high, yah we get an idea on making full games but addons? some time i do feel a rip off, and now they want to do a vip thing, like what ea doing? thats making feel more rip off and makes me wounder whats over price the full game or addon..

  18. It’s a shame Activision has to treat fans of their most successful game nothing more than money fountains. Here’s hoping they at least give out a free map. I almost regret trading in MW2 as Carnival does look like loads of fun, but if I ever decide to get it again it will be as special edition with all the DLC intact. Something I bet gets released around the next COD. I’d recommend waiting people.

  19. Usually I don’t agree with people on this site about pricing. There is absolutely a bunch of cry babies on this site. But I will say after buying the first map pack for 1200 MS points. I won’t be buying the second pack. Not worth it at all. In a nuthsell, if you don’t like the price don’t buy them. You’re not forced to.

  20. Not buying. Not only is it an outrageous price, but they were made before the game’s release and therefore should have been included in the retail version (IMO). This is a terrible approach to DLC. All that these map packs accomplished was to make me vomit in my mouth a little every time that I put the MW2 disc into the xbox, so I’ve pretty much stopped playing. So glad that I spent my money on some of the great XBLA deals instead of these maps.
