I prefer the halo 3 model. If they come out free, thats great for me, as I will get to play them. Those who want to play them early can pay...

yeah i've always held off on halo 3 maps. But i might buckle eventually on the cod4 ones, if they are never to go free.

I have no interest in buying the Halo 3 maps since Circuit City is giving them away with a Ninja Gaiden II pre-order. Yay for being cheap!

... I pay for maps is if they offer more to me as a player. I like how Warhawk includes new vehicles for the new maps, as well as options to use the new vehicles in the old maps.

One thing I have learned is that digital distribution is still being figured out. (more like groping in the dark actually) As the consumers in this new game, we have the power to shape the future of DLC. Companies like Bungie, MS and Activision are all watching what we do with DLC. If a majority are happy to buy it as soon as it comes out, then they will continue with that model.

I personally waited for the Halo 3 map pack to come out for free, no need to rush.
