MW2 Resurgence DLC $15… Again…

You would think after the whole ordeal involv­ing Activi­sion’s last map­pack that they would of have learned to at least try to not to want to scam their cus­tomers out of a ton of mon­ey.   You, how­ev­er, would be wrong.  Activi­sion’s lat­est DLC will not only be $15 dol­lars but it will fol­low the exact same deal as the last one.  It will have three new maps and two old ones.
The new map pack will con­tain the fol­low­ing new maps:
Vacant: Which is a Russ­ian Office Com­plex from CoD4

Strike:  Is a urban town sur­round­ed by hotels.  Anoth­er map from COD4

Car­ni­val: Which is an aban­doned car­ni­val area.  It has a fer­ris wheel, fun­house and oth­er ran­dom attrac­tions.

Fuel: A “sniper haven” based in and around an oil refin­ery.

Trail­er Park: Close com­bat

The DLC is slat­ed to be released on June 3, and like the pre­vi­ous map pack it will be released for the Xbox for some time before it is released for it’s PS3 and PC coun­ter­parts.  We’re sure that many will flock to this obvi­ous mon­ey grab and shell out anoth­er 1200 Microsoft Points or $15.
On a per­son­al note it’s obvi­ous that Activi­sion is going to milk the cash cow on this game until it has milked dry.  With the release of just one more map pack at this price Activi­sion will have effec­tive­ly charged con­sumers for 2 full games with none of the devel­op­ments costs on the sec­ond.

    … again… screw­ing the con­sumer of hard earned mon­ey. I know from expe­ri­ence that mak­ing maps does not take that long. Espe­cial­ly not with the stream­lined soft­ware they are using. At the cost of 15 dollers per map pack they have almost charged con­sumers for two games and skipped almost all of the dev costs. This type of “dou­ble dip­ping” just puts me on the edge.

    My god, why peo­ple pay for that game let alone play it is beyond me. You will have a bet­ter expe­ri­ence flush­ing your mon­ey down the toi­let then play­ing it.
    Also why would peo­ple want to sup­port activi­sion who are clear­ly screw­ing their own cus­tomers, when will peo­ple wake up and stop throw­ing mon­ey away just because it has the COD title.

    how this game is still get­tin any kind of recog­ni­tion on this site is beyond me. seri­ous­ly stay away from the shit­ty games. I still play cod4 and cod2 but mw2 was a waste. still say it would have been a great expan­sion or update to cod4 if they left the ded­i­cat­ed servers in and just added more maps made it pret­ti­er and added more weapons with more options. dun wit tis bs game. unin­stalled k thx

    Why does every one hate on this game so much, yea i real­ize it has its prob­lems but so do oth­er games. This game frus­trates the hell out of me but i still play because its still fun from time to time. And every time a here peo­ple bitch­ing about the $15 price tag on the map pack i feel like slap­ping a freak­ing cat…who cares if its like 5 dol­lars more then a reg­u­lar map pack. The maps that it brings are fun as hell…its some­thing called con­sumer sat­is­fac­tion, if some­thing is fun there going to make it cost a lit­tle more ‑_- stop bitch­ing a play the games thats all i have to say.…

    There is noth­ign wrong with MW2 in itself which i think is a ok game. The prob­lem that I have with the game is how they stripped every­thing away from it that the PC gam­ing com­mu­ni­ty gave to it and then turned it into a pure cash cow. Ten years ago you could get all your maps for free now we have to pay 15 dol­lars per set with no options for cus­tom maps? Thats the bull­shit. I per­son­al­ly love the sin­gle play­er cam­paign but its’ crazy short ring­ing in at only 6 hours which is pret­ty weak.
