Infinity Ward Points Finger at Activision For Modern Warfare 2 Pack Pricing

Set to hit the Xbox 360 next week, the downloadable Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Pack brings with it five new maps and a just a touch more controversy to a studio recently embroiled in discord.

Unfortunately, the Stimulus Pack has brought with it its own bit of controversy, with some claiming that the price tag is too steep for what is being delivered.

While Bowling disagrees with those who say that the 328 MB map pack is over priced, he also pointed out to Kotaku that it is Activision, not Infinity Ward, that set the pack's price.

Because guess what? They JUST basically got away with that £50 game thing Activision and Bobby wanted to bring in last year.

And the sad thing? People would be happy to pay it.

Eh I won't get it. I have money to spend in other areas and on other games. I see my friend who can't stop playing this game getting it and the more attached members of his clan getting it as well.

Why do gamers on this site only attack IW and Acti in this regard?

What about Pokemon?

or World of Warcraft?

Anyway, although I don't like MW2 and don't like the business practices of IW and Acti, I don't feel sad for people who like MW2. They like a game, so they pay for it. It makes them happy. I can only be envious.

I`m not gonna buy it (cause dont like MW2 multi) but this map pack is simply overpriced when 2 of 5 maps are old from previous game. And about Bowling bullshiting - he is just poor salesman and he should sell Bible door to door - dont like this guy and his attidue to sellin bullshit.

Made my day with that comment, man.

LOL @ Xiphos! That was pure win. And for those who skipped geography class:

Anyway, I'm surprised we still haven't seen a petition to boycott this thing. In my opinion it's more justified than the one people made for dedicated servers. The price for this map pack is just outrageous and no one should buy it. That would surely send a message to the entire industry.

ACTIVI$ION. And they see the money in your bank account right now.

""Things like (Modern Warfare 2's) Marathon Perk could destroy the balance of a Call of Duty 4 map.""


I'm sorry, I didn't realize CoD was balanced.
