I don't understand why they only do the xbox first. If it is an entire game I can understand, as a marketing strategy, but if you buy this you already have the game on a platform.

anyone get what im saying?

Furthermore nice that they release map packs, but I don't see this to be worth $15. Then again, I don't play MW2.

BF BC2 costs as much as both DLCs here in Romania, but has a lot more to offer, like dedicated servers!

I play MW2, and it has really good gameplay(especially in Hardcore mode), graphics, it's optimized(it can run on my notebook), but everything else is crap.
I would have bought the DLC if it added dedicated servers and anti-cheat. I know they're too lazy, but they should at least put in a kick-voting system, for fuck's sake!

It's Activision's way of saying: screw you PC and PS3 users, say goodbye to the times when you only had to pay for the game itself. I guess Activision isn't content with making a 500% profit within the first few weeks, they want to milk the cow to death.

As far as I know (at least here in South Africa) the players aren't even playing MW2, tournaments and events and serious gamers are still competing on MW1. So unless they support these guys by allowing dedicated servers, there isnt really a point to bringing it out on PC anyway. (except of course those handful that play on the crappy automated online system). Just my 2c

I'm pretty sure it comes out on 360 first because Microsoft hand Activision some Gold subscription money to do so.

This is just completely stupid. Even worse on the new map packs for PC. You cannot pick which game mode to play on the new maps, its all random.

I remember when games added new content in patches, online was free, map packs game once every few months. The only money you paid was to buy the game, nothing else.
Is it really over?

Yeah, idiots apparently are willing to buy it, so it's not surprising. I'd never pay anything for a map pack. They should be supporting those who buy the game, not the other way around. And then the chumps who buy it say that intelligent people like us shouldn't get mad and that we don't have to buy it, But like you said, it sets a precedence. Full-fledged expansion packs used to be $15. I blame Bungie and Microsoft, they're the first company to charge a ridiculous price for a map pack. But this takes it to a whole new level, and Bungie at least eventually released the maps for free. Giant companies ruin gaming and game companies. In comparison, when Bungie was independent, they released a full expansion for Myth 2 for free. I didn't believe it was possible for a company to be worse than EA. I remember when Activision and Vivendi merged, people said it would be worse than EA, but I didn't believe it. I've been proven wrong for once, so props to those prophets. Can't wait for them to do the same with Starcraft 2. Already releasing 3 separate games at $60 a pop. I'm surprised they didn't charge for Beta access too. I saw people are selling keys on ebay. Wouldn't surprise me if they were Blizzard/Activision employees selling them.

This is what a lack of dedicated servers, and a lack of SDK was all about, had nothing to do with the user experience, it was about being able to screw people over for a few shitty maps.

I refused to buy MW2 on principle, so glad I took that decision and stuck to it

This makes Ubisoft seem like a wonderful company with their Far Cry 2 editor. At least they only released ONE DLC, and it was "only" $10.

I think that paying for DLC isn't a problem if a company releases a good mapbuilder with the game. That way we'd get community for free (or paid, but I've never heard of such insanity) and professionally made works for a fee.

Still, $15 may be too high, I can't say though; I don't own COD:MW2.

Of course it's too much: only 3 new maps for $15, that's $5 per map while the original game had 16 maps for $60, that's $3.75 per map and also included the development costs of the game.

And it works. The price may drive away a handful of people, but everyone else will buy it.
