According to IGN.com's review of Modern Warfare 2, Infinity Ward is already planning on creating DLC in the form of both Map Packs, as well as more missions for the popular Spec Ops Game Mode.
The whole of MW2 is just DLC bolted on the COD4 engine. I wonder how many will fall for it again.
Remind me, which sequels that released during the same console generation used different engines? I know it's the "in" thing to do at the moment, hate on COD, but I'll be picking up any DLC if I think it's worth it and no doubt I'll be enjoying it while you continue to moan about it.
IW is just so low on my list of best developers right now. Too bad, they used to be great. Guess the success got to their heads.
Didnt they plan it, add it to the game, then hide it for future unlockablity and say hey look what we just made up for you, now give us the $20AUD. which is like $10USD ignore the exchange rate its a lie.
The CoD hate bandwagon had started before they decided to rick roll pc gamers. BUT it wasn't until they did that that. That the bandwagon went into full swing. Which only means. They brought it upon themselves.
All I can say is damn this BFBC2 is fun! The graphic's are tight for a beta. The sounds are just damn epic! Best I've ever heard in a war type game setting. Blowing up stuff is so epic. Just a total win win game!
Agree BFBC2 is fun just got the beta yesterday and is fun but MW2 is way better.
I want more Spec Ops missions! They are hella fun, especially the one in Alpha where you're in the snow as a sniper and you gotta be stealthy. Very fun with a buddy online.
agree with claney...i thought it was already "planned", not "being planned"...wasnt there already atleast one confirmed dlc map pack that had a leaked date on the monster energy drink cans (or one of the energy drink cans), but i guess they mean dlc missions
That's my fav Spec Ops mission. It's so awesome playing with a buddy, taking out each patrol on sync.
MW 1 was good! MW2 is good! Both games are fun to play... so why do people hate this game so much? Is it the graphics? I was shocked at how much better the graphics were over MW 1. Is it the story? Most games are becoming shorter and more action packed with the main focus being placed on multiplayer... Not to mention, most gamers only play through a story once. Is it the hype and drama that has built up leading up to release? I never get too much into all that so it didn't bother me. All I care about is if the game is fun... and to me it is! Lighten up guys! You treat these game companies like a bully who used to beat you up. If you don't want to deal with them, don't deal with them. But I think it's time to grow up and quit complaining about stuff you can't change... remember that so called boycott... you see how far that got...
Its a personal opinion. Some people feel that Activision is half-assing an already short linear game with monster closets and dumb A.I with an underwhelming multiplayer - by multiplayer FPS game standards, and releasing a sequel without improving much to turn a quick buck as fast as possible. Specops could be DLC for MW, everyone knows this. And looking at the bar defining GTA dlc, MW2's content would certainly qualify as DLC. It wont get pinned down for it though as its advertising budgets & media perks to be part of its hype-train are too great. Which is fine, its the same thing Madden does. You saw how 2k became big for a while until they also started doing the same half-ass rehash of code with a new coat of polish. Now add in Activisions attitude towards the PC, and the price hike. MW is as fun as any online FPS is going to be, and needless to say things like TF2 are beyond its scope of depth of run and gun spray & pray camp-a-thon-till-you-get-strik es-nade-spam-fest. An arcade FPS to play with friends will always be fun, there is no level of fun you're getting in MW2 that you wont find in any co-op mode that actually puts a slight effort forward. Its a popular game for children an adults alike. FPS is just great easy pick-up and play gaming. Its universal, tack on 20 million dollars in advertising for any FPS and you'd get the same results. As far as the boycott goes, No one does a boycott to put a company under. Its to at least go on record to not support a Company like Activision. I dont think that me not buying a Britney Spears CD is going to ruin her. I don't buy the cd because its garbage. The direction that Activision wants gaming to go, with Higher priced titles and single game consoles isn't a gaming world which I'd want to participate in as a gamer. Paying top dollar for minimum effort is also something that I don't pride myself in doing, especially for an entertainment hobby. Giving them money for their products just emboldens their decisions. Luckily, the world has seen the FPS phase in PC gaming come and go, and when this gen of gamers mature they will want more than just the same basic FPS with different models. So I feel like its annoying to deal with now, but it has a lifespan hopefully and others titles aren't big enough to warrant such huge advertising budgets. So again, hopefully it will just be isolated Series like Madden/Guitar Hero/Halo/COD. There is no pay off for trying to push gaming forward anymore it seems. But being "more of the same" is rewarded greatly.
Didn't PC hackers already find the DLC for MW2 printed within the disc itself?
It would be weird if they weren't working on it. This is next in my GameFly cue, but I still have to beat A Crack in Time (great game by the way). I really want to get my hands on this, I love COD4, but I refuse to give Activition my money. So, I guess I'll wait for the Game of the Year Edition that will have all the DLC on it next year, but of course I'll be buying it used.
More like their ready to unlock the DLC already in the copies on the games.
More like... no matter what they do you're going to bash them. Last time the FBs bashed them because Treyarch made DLC Map Packs and IW only made one. Boo hoo. Now that IW is making DLC, the people will say, "Oh, of course, so they can make more money." Nothing they do from this point on is going to be viewed positively.
@kaveti6616 The reason that people are bashing them about DLC is because there is a 90% chance the data is already on the disc and they are going to charge you 10-12$ to unlock and use it. When you BUY a game you should have everything on that disc ready or able to unlock threw playing not having to pay more for whats on the disc.
"The reason that people are bashing them about DLC is because there is a 90% chance the data is already on the disc and they are going to charge you 10-12$ to unlock and use it.

Is it from your misconception that you formulated from the Resident Evil 5 incident? Where do you get the 90% statistic? Did you just pull that out of your ass? Do you have any concrete proof? No. Do you have a bias against Infinity Ward? I think so. I'm tired of reading people's fallacious posts on this site. Have some self-respect.
i agree with your post but pc hackers found out there are other maps on the disk. There was an article about that yesterday. No nobody is sure if those just got canned or will be used for DLC.
So quick to judge other people, proving yourself to be a fanboy with an unmistakable bias for Infinity Ward. Some people choose not to be sheep and question things when they appear suspicious. Most likely NotSoSilentBob is basing his speculation on the fact PC gamers have read the directory files (or whatever) for MW2 have discovered locked modes and content on the disc, not knowing its purpose. Sure, you could ignore it and put all your faith in almighty Activision/Infinity Ward never to take advantage of such a devout follower as yourself, or throw up an exclamation point over your head and find out why it exists. If it turns out the DLC is already on the disc, are you going to feel stupid for calling other people whiners when they made a valid point, or will you just shrug it off and graze with the other sheep? I'm glad other gamers are making a fuss, as you should too, so you won't have to face the possibility of being screwed in the end.
You are an idiot. Read people's comment histories before you call them fanboys. I don't like Infinity Ward or Activision. I have not purchased either MW or MW2 or WAW, and I don't plan on doing so. But those facts are besides the point, right? You're calling ME a sheep? As if you aren't being one? You idiots have absolutely no idea how easy you are to manipulate. You're hating on a company because a large group of people are hating on a company. It's easier for you to side with the collective rather than just be yourself. Do you really think you formed your opinion of Activision and Infinity Ward on your own? Are you that pathetic? You hate them because it's vogue to hate them. As soon as a great developer becomes mainstream you guys start calling them sellouts and start saying how they always sucked, and their games were never good. That's just the way it is, and you SHEEP are always gonna be like that. I'm completely indifferent to Infinity Ward and Activision. I don't buy their games because I don't have the money, but I'm not gonna bash them just because they make ruthless business decisions. So GTFO with your finger pointing.
why did you choose to bash him instead of responding to the fact that pc gamers have found things on the pc disk that could indeed be dlc to be unlocked later? Instead of wasting your time name calling someone, you should have addressed that. The article was posted yesterday i believe I agree with you though that quite a few fanboys are too quick to judge this game and the company when some haven't even tried it yet, its really irritating how some right it off without any hands on time with it.
"why did you choose to bash him instead of responding to the fact that pc gamers have found things on the pc disk that could indeed be dlc to be unlocked later?" They keyword there is "could". Too bad you haters don't understand that, and always take everything as guilty until proven innocent. Those maps could always be something that they didn't want to implement for one reason or another. So until that prediction becomes true, stop embarrassing yourself and just let it go.
There are ALWAYS hidden files and unused files in the discs. The developers leave those in for personal reasons. Instead of immediately bashing IW and saying that the DLC is already on the disc, the community can reserve judgment until a later time. Am I wrong? If the DLC happens to consist of maps already available on the disc, then by all means complain. But until then, stop being biased towards the company. Kotor II had a wealth of hidden content on the game disc that modders eventually used to patch the unfinished game together. It happens. Maybe the files found on the MW2 disc are only fragments of maps that didn't make it into the final product and will never be part of the DLC. For all you know, I'm right. So why pass judgment already? Is it because you guys are being biased?
kaveti6616 Vitua Fighter V the first few DLC were on the disc and only required a 100Kb activation DL for 10$ I think it was.
Yes, I am a sheep for forming my own opinion on the matter. I am an idiot for having a different perspective than yours, which yours is quite obviously tunnel vision. I neither attacked Activision or Infinity Ward (in fact, if you are so fond of people reading others' comment histories, you'd see I recently called IW a great developer). However, I defended other peoples' opinions that you were so quick to dismiss and make blanket claims that we are all fanboys. A sheep does not question. A sheep gives the benefit of the doubt regardless of something being suspicious. You are everything you accuse others of being. You will now lose a bubble for attacking other members, judging them for having an opinion different from your own. For something you have no personal stake in (you don't own the game or care about either company's offerings) you force your opinion down our throats and refuse to respect ours.
Activision has one hand on my wallet and IW has another tearing out my heart. Oh "great" IW, how you have fallen.
Not this time, IW, not this time.
Sad to see you guys turn on a great developer because the media and fellow "gamers" have told you to. Start thinking for yourselves. This is how Obama got elected. : (
Perhaps they are thinking for themselves instead of just grazing along in green pastures? No one is denying Infinity Ward is a good developer, however, one should wonder why there is locked content on the disc.
People are just wondering about a possible unlock code which is a practice that needs to go away. People are aware of the DLC controversies and do not want to be taken advantage of. Being well informed often times means deviating from the masses which is a good thing. As for the Obama comment: People were so put off by Bush and his cronies that a Republican winning would have been nearly impossible. The fact that the Dems put a ticket together with 2 capable and intellectually sound candidates made it that much harder a fight. Besides I think people had enough of Bush's embarrassing representation of the people of the US that they only saw the continuation in that embarrassments in Sarah Palin. Palin is cut from a similar cloth as Bush and not in a remorely flattering way.
Oh i'm thinking for myself .. COntent hidden in the game ( check ) Dlc coming ( check ) Remember soul calibur 4 ? ( everything was already on the disc ) Remember resident evil 5 ? ( everything was already on the disc too ) i never bought dlc for theses games .. Heck even the hidden games modes are playable ! we got a video for it .. So please ... i think enough to not pay for the same things twice ( never bought street fighter 4 dlc either ) Iw ? what they did with MW2 is the lowest of the low ... ( no improvement of their engine , short campaign , abominable multiplayer lag and NO custom at all, thief of pc COD4 mods ) and you want me to think for myself ? i 'm already doing that ... And what's with the political comment ? was that necessary HERE ??
perhaps people voted for Obama because he was the better choice between the 2 candidates? Just cuz they voted for him doesn't make them blind sheep, thats a horrible generalization that needs to be put to rest, i wouldnt say that about people electing Bush 2 times in a row and i won't do it for Obama also. ON TOPIC: I hate to see some who loved the first game start hating IW now but really, for what was done tot he pc version, i can't blame pc players at all. If any group of players deserve to be pissed of at IW, its pc gamers
I got their COD4 Mappack and was not impressed with half baked attempt. I hope this better be good as i hv 400MS points spare and want to put it to good use.
I can't wait for some more content. I'm hooked.
After playing the Battlefield beta I don't think i'll be buying any DLC, might prove myself wrong but I just dont think I can get back into MW2
But after playing the JAGGIE bad co 2 beta i cant wait for MW2 DLC
It's a BETA. The aliasing is not going to be that bad in the final version. They're not going to polish up the game by adding anti-aliasing yet when they're not even done creating assets for the game.
yeah talk about jaggies and pure glitchness Bad company 2 is the way to go...the beta was so clunky and not smooth one bit. MW is way to go. sales number prove it for both ps3 and 360....majority of gamers will prefer mw2 while the other cry about mw2 sucking and playing BC which the beta....was just all fd up
Suck their balls!
...like the one that's already on the disk and will be unlocked once you shelled out $9.99 to IW. Yeah....they already planning on counting the $.
everyone is entitled to an opinion, which is fine. I am just saying i own MW2, and haven't touched it since playing this BETA for BFBC, I think it is excellent, much more of a dynamic game, but I guess you like what you like - and yes, beta means it's being tested and is unfinished, so save your criticisms.
Some Zombie action would be greatly appreciated. COD Zombies was the best addition in WaW for me as I personally prefered COD4 to WaW in every other way. I don't get why so many people are running their mouths about MW2. If you don't like it just don't buy it. Almost every single person on my friends list has it so obviously alot of people like it. If you don't like it then just buy something else and leave the people who do like it to play it. I don't like Hannah Montana the game but I don't spend my days looking for threads about the game just to tell everybody that.
BUT IW HAS SHOWN THEIR TRUE COLORS. (TO ME, ANYWAY..) After seeing how they treated the PC gamers, I wouldn't be surprised if the some extra "DLC" stuff was already completed (When the game was). IW is just waiting to "gouge" MW2 gamers with some more money. Doesn't matter to me, because I have never (And never will) pay for DLC. For $60 bucks...it should be free. (At least the 1st couple DLC MP's.) BUT HEY...I'm an honorable person, who thinks with integrity and ethics. And please....don't reply to me about that "developers need to make money on DLC, because they don't get that much from the game" crap. PC was not given it's customary dedicated server right because IW/MS/Activision wanted to catch them on the "Come Back". (Meaning....that They wanted the PC and console gamers to all "Grab your Ankles") (lol) Jerks won't get me though....15 maps are good enough.
When it comes down to DLC on the PS3, there are ways of spending a few bucks or none at all. First of all, either wait for the price to drop or not buy it at all. Second, cheapest way is to game share with a few of your friends. Better yet, support the company who made it by shelling out XX.XX amount of money.
cause I am bot.
Shouldn't this DLC be already in the game? A couple of weeks after the release and now there's a DLC coming? Why not put them on Blu-Ray disc. There's a lot of space. I guarantee that MW2 on PS3 only uses 6-8.5 GB of the Blu-Ray disc. That's the same amount of gigs a 360 game uses. Seriously, multiplats r holding back Blu-Ray cause of M$'s DVD9 (Tekken 6, RE5, Devil May Cry etc). I want a great game like MGS4, KZ2 or Uncharted 1, and not a port on the system that's capable of doing so much more. Seriously, most 3rd party developers today just care about money instead of praise and love.
