In an update to Loot Ninja's CoD4 Map Pack news, their Editor in Chief heard from Activision that the Variety Map Pack will be exclusive to the Xbox 360 for the first 21 days of its release before being available for the PS3.
You get what you pay for :)
Stick to first party games. U cannot go wrong and when they mess up, they have to listen to you when u bit*h at them on the blog. 3rd party will tell u to go take the pi$$ and u don't have a choice.
deepest pockets on this planet...
It's not like its a console shifter !!The PS3 has to wait 21 day's so what !! Over them next 21 days the PS3 will get GT Prologue and Everybody's golf thats more than enough to keep you going on the PS3 for the next 21 day's easy !! So its not like we're gonna be sitting on our thumbs in anticipation But if one console got the Exclusive rights to bring GTA4 out 21 days before the other now that would be something to boast about !!!!!!!
"deepest pockets" They can pay whoever they want for all i care. I only care about games. IF the customer is getting what he bought the console for then he's happy and irritants like RROD will not be much problem for him. On the other hand if you keep waiting for the promises of pot of games at the end of the rainbow and see other side busy playing games then unless you're a blind fool just following one brand, you should raise your voice to the console maker, rather than patting yourselves to sleep everyday.

sak500 - come back when you're a big boy and you understand the influence of money. You... 1. assume i dont own the xbox version of cod based on the statements you made 2. refuse to look at facts
Actually, the 360 does get something exclusive regarding GTA IV. Not 21 days, but forever. Two exclusive downloads. 50 million dollars worth. But who am I? I'm the guy who is going to boast about that. I own both consoles as of today (Picked up my PS3-WOOTAGE), but the 360 version of GTA IV is the one I'm going to get. Already preordered it.
It's just MS throwing more money around, they're getting a bit desperate when it comes to delaying DLC for 3 weeks. If anything it just reaffirms my reasons for not getting tied up with an MS platform in the first place. Certainly not doing games themselves any favors.
If I didn't dislike this game so much, I'd make a VERY 'fanboyish' comment right here
What a surprise.
kind of like the patch
A borked patch at that, the PS3 patch doesn't even seem to handle Host Migration, WTH is that all about? I'm sick of the Host Ended Game error messages every 1 in 3 games to be kicked out of the game and into a lone lobby. The Patch was supposed to fix this by keeping all the other players together even if the Host ended the game and then find a new host with everyone in the lobby. Guess they forgot to include this major feature in the patch for PS3 owners. We always seem to be an afterthought for IW. The treat 360 owners better.
21 days now counts as exclusive? Hmm I have tell my boss that - maybe we will make more exclusive content! lol.
Yeah it's exclusive for 21 days. Don't know whats hard to get about that lol ... you must be in 5th grade I guess?
Eer no...not grade 5 by any stretch of the imagination. And 21 days != exclusive. If we can call launching a product 21 days later on a different console an exclusive (to get more press, etc) we would do it. But since 21 days is still within the launch window of the product it's not an exclusive.
Sure it is. It's exclusive for 21 days, meaning it can't be had on any other system for 21 days. Though as to why the definition of exclusive is so twisted when it comes to games boggles me.
Your boss? How bout your girlfriend? Haha I'd like to be exclusive with you baby. 21 days later - she storms in, "What were you thinking???"
If you can find me a girlfriend first T_T - I work upwards of 90hrs a week at a publisher as support for 3rd party developers. as for exclusive - the idea of exclusivity is that no one else can have it (I still hate the term timed exclusive since by definition it is not exclusive) and a delay for a patch/maps etc is more a delay then an exclusivity agreement. http://dictionary.oed.com/c...
Exsclusive for 21 days thats right means only on the 360 for 21 days how hard is that to understand...Like anybody cares anywho, I am glad cause i dont play this on the ps3 anyways.
don't be too surprised sony fan boy's you lot should be use too this by now.so please no tear's
When you're so damn funny?! lol. You're lame.
why would we cry. were not the ones waiting for 6 weeks to get our consoles back. besides i have plenty of games to hold me over.
Micro$oft will try anything to get people to buy their xFlop360's!!! Maybe they should spend the money buying Lifeboats for every xBot Lemming out there!!! ;-D BECAUSE YOU ARE SINKING!
What a dumba*s! Your acting like it will hit the PS3 one year after the Xbox 360,it's only three weeks!;) BTW Level 55 Prestige 5 with golden shotty right here baby! PSN ID=Wario420
It will be tear's of Laughter soon WiiWii er pp!!! ;-D
LOL Wait for in game chat. Wait for Home Wait for freaking map packs for your most popular game! You Sony fanboys LOVE to WAIT!
at least sony did not pay a lot of money to get those maps 21 days earlier
This game is selling tons on each platform. Why would it get shafted like this?
I own the 360 version so it doesn't bother met at all, but I agree with you. That is so stupid, all it does is alienate the fan base. All content should be released for the same time for each system no matter what it is, if it's not ready for both than don't just release it for one.
It's selling more tons on Xbox 360, and COD4 on Xbox 360 beat Halo 3 for most played for like 8 weeks straight now.
They have nothing against the fanbase, it just takes longer to do things on the PS3, this includes the PSN, you should be happy it is coming at all. Until Sony fixes the issues with the Network and the development tools, this is going to be a way of life for PS3 owners. Stop blaming the developers and blame Sony.
Ofcourse its going to sell more on the 360, the console has an install base of over 17million whereas the PS3 is almost 11million.
