15 * 20 = 300

that's 300 million dollars in case you didn't understand and that only from map packs
well form the looks of things i don't see COD dying any time soon

300 million dollars of profit just went strait to Activision's wallet
this is a very very sad day in gaming

and the fact is this game is no longer fun, its about people trying to increase their k/d ratio. I've went in a room with everyone just camping (no jokes either)

Not 20 million of the MW2 map packs. 20 Million map packs across the whole franchise.

I'm out.
I bought the packs for COD4 and I had a lot of fun. I grabbed 2 of the COD WAW packs and again had a blast (Zombies ftw). I grabbed the first pack for MW2 and was very underwhelmed despite the new $15 dollar price tag. MW2 multiplayer just isn't up to COD4. Too glitchy, too many cheaters, too many problems, too unbalanced. My friends and I used to play COD4 religiously on the weekends. We'd arrange a time, we'd all meet up online and it was a blast. Although each of us bought MW2, we haven't had a single match where we've all got together because we all are in agreement. MW2's multiplayer just isn't as good.

And Activision wants to charge us for multiplayer in the future? There are plenty of better multiplayer shooters out there. Activision needs to get off their high horse and realize that.

Contribute to any of that. Just bought the game, beat campaign and sold it back.

Unbelievable. People are that stupid. Marketing, kids. It's all marketing. Activision and EA are both masters of it. COD is the most generic FPS I've ever played. Well, Disrupter, Resistance 1 & 2 withstanding. How people can choose one fps over the other is lunacy. They are all the same. And look at all the money wasted there. 20million + whatever they cost, I don't even know because I wouldn't be caught dead playing another COD game. I played like part 5 on my ps3 with a buddy and now I can't get the trophies off there.

Why bring R1 and R2 into this? Wait don't answer that.

SO let me get this straight

R1 is generic
R2 is COMPLETELY different to the original in every sense of the word but is still generic?

Halo hasn't changed and involves space marines, Gears again space marines type people... Resistance a 1950's Alien invasion.

I can't believe this, MAP PACKS? PC had free maps for ages, it should be free for fans. Thanks you idiots who buy this crap.

A fool is soon parted with his money.

And how much of that money went to IW? Probably none.
Non_sequitur  +   1603d ago
I bought the map packs just play with all my friends who have it and send me an invite. The map packs are only great until people find the best places to camp. Now MW2 is boring again. Well, playing different modes helps a little.

Don't hate on them. They're smart by business standards! Keep them CoD fanboys coming for more and they'll eat out of your hand! Unfortunately that's me included =/

P.S-Seeing as I'm a secret CoD lover (even though I hate it at the same time, it's weird), I pounced at this article when I thought it was something Black Ops related!
