Bobby,is laughing at all us call of duty haters.

Its ridiculous but its been done worse... COD BLOPS.. SIXTY dollars... for MAPS

Istanbull2747d ago

Whoever pays 15 bucks for 3 shitty maps for a shitty game is a moron, no offence.

Bnet3432747d ago

People that make a lot of money and don't care. For example, Ice T is a Call of Duty fan, you think he's going to be pissed off about $15? Nope ... BTW I never bought maps for any COD game. I wouldn't buy them if they were 800 points either. 400 points I would think about.

badz1492747d ago

after last year, and people still buy it...Dear God, WHY?

"People that make a lot of money and don't care"

Incredibly sad to see the game industry where it is today. More people buy map packs for a broken, unbalanced game than some great games.

This just show shit on NGP will blow LOL

LoaMcLoa2747d ago (Edited 2747d ago )

1.4 players just wasted 15 bucks each. You can actually buy good games with those money, like Metal Gear Solid 4 or Gears of War

DoomeDx2747d ago

Or buy an entire new game from that 15 bucks.
like Breach / Modern Combat

kramun2747d ago (Edited 2747d ago )

Some would argue you would have wasted 15 bucks on Metal Gear Solid 4. Who are you to judge?

EDIT:What strikes me is the hypocrisy. I didn't see the same outrage over Little Big Planets DLC, and there was loads.

How much DLC was there for Little Big Planet?

BlackTar1872747d ago

note im not anti the map pack.

but the LBP DLC didn't kick you out of the room if you didn't have it. Like this does. Your not missing a huge part of the game with the LBP DLC that i can rememebr like you are with this DLC.

kramun2747d ago (Edited 2747d ago )

LBP is like a sponge for DLC, probably the worst. Get a child who loves LBP and you forever get asked if they can have this DLC or that DLC. Don't think that Sony are Angels, they aren't.

MGS4 was crap though. You spent most of your time watching the game. When you could actually play the game it was a relief.

I don't even like COD and I would rather play it than put myself through playing MGS4.

Spitfire_Riggz2747d ago (Edited 2747d ago )

So this is your argument... NINE dollars for MGS4 used or GEARS. Over FIFTEEN DOLLARS for MAPS. WASTING 9 dollars on a full 10/10 AAA game is impossible. I spend more at mcdonalds. Even if you hate mgs4.

trounbyfire2747d ago

see why after MW2 $15 maps many more games a $15.

thanks people for holding us back. instead of getting online games prices down because no shipping, no stores, and yet we have full price games on consols stores.


blumatt2747d ago

I would never buy anymore map packs from them. They should cost at MOST $5 for a map pack. The game is crap, and they expect us to buy these overpriced map packs too? lmao
