Activision has announced the Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Pack for deployment on March 30th, arriving first on Xbox 360.
Didn't realize people still played this thing. It's so last month.
It's mostly 360 players that still play this game. Hence this map pack comes out on the 360 first.
Do the hacks/bugs/glitches work in the new dlc too?
^^Mostly 360?? It's the biggest on PSN also. Personally I gave up on this game..I'll be playing perfect dark come next week lol
Once you go MAG you just can't go back. Doing 8v8 just feels like I'm a rat in a box repeating the same thing over and over again. The very least I can manage is 16v16 now and that's even pushing it. 20v20, 30v30, 128v128 - go big or just go home. Games like MW2 etc only get rentals from me (if I even have time for it which I really can't seem to find) for the campaign parts cause MAG has totally "dominated" my online gaming time for FPS so DLC (timed or otherwise) for this game virtually means nothing to me XD
I bought it last month. Regret it. O and I played it about 10 hours and got really bored...
Pffft, who cares about MW2 anymore.
On average I usually see 600,000 to 700,000 people playing daily. The lowest I have seen playing is 200,000 but that's at around 4am. @themyk 2.2 UC2 isn't that hard online. You just gotta get used to aiming quicker and throwing those grenades whenever you get a chance. Also go for the power weapons like the shotgun, M4 and pick up the extra grenades. The Fal was a waste of time for me and the default AK-47 gets it done if you practice what I said. UC2 was one of my favorite games on Ps3. But once I beat the story and the number of online players started dipping below 2,000 I got rid of it. BTW, I also noticed how similar UC2 felt to Gears 2! A fanboy won't believe that, but anyone who has played both know the truth.
10 million just on the 360 alone, PS3 can't seem to put up any eyebrow raising numbers like that this gen.
"expect some servers to be pushed to breaking point" how about, "expect many glitches to be found and hacks to be discovered, and many patches to follow when it is released" now its all about Bad Company 2 (i realize BFBC2 had server issues, but alot of BF games do at launch). i don't care if it is gonna be available for us 360 players first, im gonna be too busy playing BFBC2. but i will probably end up eventually getting it.
"Didn't realize people still played this thing. It's so last month." Yep, more than MAG and KZ2 combined.
I really cant see why anyone would play MW2 over BFBC2 or even COD4. I'd have rather they just expanded COD4's MP than make MW2. Everyone I know whos bought BFBC2 thinks it kills MW2.
I've already moved on to BF:BC2. Although, I hope they fix the lag on the servers.
I play MW2 over BFBC2 because i didnt find BC2 much fun. WHich is odd cause i loved all the battlefield games. Just not my game i guess.
last month? I think you meant last year! or 2007? :)
Been playing Uncharted 2 multiplayer a lot more recently. Now, the kind of improvements and effort put into that game is what I want to see in MW2.
I'm hoping by improvements you are not referring to update 1.05 where they totally butchered the game. I think they have 1.06 now (that I haven't downloaded) that adjusted some of the issues that 1.05 brought but that game was fine the way it was before the health was adjusted. Now anyone who can hold a controller can get a kill and it's ruined the game for me.
i consider myself a pretty good gamer. i've been doing it for 25 years. anyways i loved uncharted. beat it on crushing, part one and two. and i got online with part two and it put me off how hard it was to kill someone. i know i know go for headshots. i try. but it shouldn't take a full clip into someones chest to get that kill. i stopped playing cause it felt like gears. i wanted it to be a bit more realistic. socom even call of duty mw2 has a pretty good 3rd person online both of those had a more realistic feel for killing someone online. u2 just took way to many shots to put someone down. IN MY OPINION.
themyk...but the game wasn't designed to be like MW2 where you go down almost immediately. For me it wasn't that hard to kill people and besides that was the way the game was designed. If they had wanted it to be easier or "more realistic" then they should have designed it that way instead of releasing it and then patching it 6 months later and totally changing the way the game plays. I'm sure there are plenty that like the new health system but for people like me that have been with the game since the beta they have ruined it.
i get what your saying. i do. oh yea and i like how you put ( " " ) around more realistic like it's some kind of joke or something. it only takes about 3 or 4 bullets to kill somebody "in real life" lol. i'm not hating i'm just saying. and if they changed the game it's because enough people asked them to do it. they don't do stuff like this just to piss everybody off. i wouldn't know. i didn't even know they changed the health cause i haven't played it. cause i wanted it to be "more realistic" so maybe i should give it a shot and enjoy it like the majority of the rest of the people that wanted a "more realistic" feel. lol by the way i like your comments. ur not being tracked by me or anything but you usually post pretty quality posts
From the rumored photos of the new maps I saw Crash and Overgrown which were a couple of my favorites on COD4. That's got me wanting to purchase the content.
You want to pay for something you have already bought?
The same way KZ2 owners paid for DLC map packs that were remakes of Killzone 1 maps.
Let the man spend his money how he wants to. You have no right to think that you can tell him whats a good purchase and whats a bad one unless he asks for advice.
Save the money, put it towards Bad Company 2.
Agreed. I gave up on MW2 back in December.
Xbox, Queen of the time-exclusive DLC
LOL yep, pay all that money just to have content the opposition gets anyways in a few months hope they really put out the cash for it cuz now, unlike a 360 owner, i have plenty of games to play and coming soon and i will have no need for MW2, its ran into the ground FPS genre or DLC so peace out and even tho i have GoW GT5 and everything else coming up HURRY UP WITH SOCOM 4!!!!!! been down with socom since s1 baby and its time for a REAL socom game on PS3
you sound like butthurt sony fanboy.. mw2 pack in 360 because this: 1. more players online ( psn is small install base) 2. more copies sold in 360 ( 10 m in 360, 6m in ps3) suc* this ps3 fanboys.
6 million possiple DLC copies is still high :P believe it or not.
Sony must be broke this gen after they spent it all last gen going against Sega.
"6 million possiple DLC copies is still high :P believe it or not." you fail in your statement.. the base install of psn is small and not buy dlc. 10 m of copies sold in 360= around 8.0 m dlc sold ps3= 6.0 m 1.5 m sold dlc... :)
let me quote yourself: "in a few months"
Microsoft buys timed dlcs while Sony uses money to acquire studios and fund first party games. Yeah go ahead and keep giving MS your money.
droids get so wound up.. i dont even care abouttimed exclusive things.. no matter how annoying it must be for them.. when we are bored of it they have seen it all.
In my opinion BC2>MW2 it's shame that reviewers fell into the hype of Modern Warfare 2 and gave it 10's for a lackluster at best singleplayer a flawed unbalanced online and a fairly decent co-op
Still play every day. And I have a blast! Hope these map packs are done better then the DLC map packs for COD4.
You probably own a 360, ps3 has way too many variety of games to choose from. I sold MW2 for MAG & never looked back, it's the best thing i've ever done & accomplished as a GAMER. Life is so much better now, knowing that what i payed for will work as long as its not something from ACT!V!S!ON's G!MM!CK B!N.. the spelling with the upside (i) is a glitch from having there name in this post. THEY'RE VIRUS TO THE INDUSTRY
I own a PS3 and I play MW2 on my 360. It's fun! Plus I like getting good at it. I tried the Mag beta and I thought it was ho-hum. The BCB2 demo is good, but I'm just used to MW2. What's the deal with people on N4G? MW2 is the most played game on PSN and one of the most played games on Live, yet they're convinced that it's from the "GimmickBin." Quite honestly, I could care less what you guys think. I have fun with my friends playing MW2 and that's that. For some reason instead of being happy that I'm enjoying gaming, I (as well as others) get criticized for having fun. If you don't like it, then maybe it's just not for you. Last night when I played on Live there were over 750,000 people logged on at the same time. So it's definitely for someone. Shuttup with the "broken-game" "glitch-fest" comments. They're littering the comments sections and not allowing us to talk about a game that many of us still have fun playing.
I agree. MW2 is still a good game. You can tell it doesn't get a lot of love from the devs but none the less, as far as games go it's still one of the best out there right now. I don't plan on buying the maps, because I'm getting burnt out on the game, but as far as maps go, MW2 does maps far better than any i've been in in a while.
for a game that is still broken? no thanks.
I gotta say, timed dlc is probably the gayest thing any developer can do.
I think what Capcom is doing with Mega Man 10 is worse (March 1st release date for Wii, March 11th release date for PS3, March 31st release date for 360).
Keep your map pack that comes out on the 360 first. I have BFBC2 to play.
no thanks when they ban all the hackers and cheaters i'll buy content...
i laugh at your pity attempts , why play more of your crap when i have better. FFXIII, BF:BC2, AND SOON TO BE GOTY GOWIII!! sry the ppl have spoken we've moved on.
Look at how many people are playing MW2 right now.
gives a good reason for buying Bad Company 2 instead of MW2 for my PS3. bc2 looks amazing
xbox gets it first cuz they only play cod and halo while ps3 has all its exclusives this last month, this month, next month haha
Yes, Activision. Scare away even more customers with your timed BS. And then keep whining about how you want more console price cuts because your games don't sell.
I thought due to the court case, they were forbade from doing this?
SSSSSLLLLOOOOOOWWWW NEEEEWWWWWSSSSS I knew the release date in fecking january,
who cares about cod moderndisaster 2.its a f%%kin glitch fest and highly over rated.my advice to xbox fans is to waste ur money on actuall games.yea sounds good right. ps im a mothsf$$kin realist
Thanks for the beta test guys,
Thanks for your bubble.
You people are sad...ya know that? If all the gaming news wasn't in a central place like this and easy to find, I would never visit this place. Just because someone doesn't like the same game as you, they're idiots and have no gaming (or real life for that matter) knowledge. Just because someone doesn't drool over MAG or BFBC2 (personally I've played it and think it's a little too slow...good game but just not for me), then they have no idea what they're doing. I'm convinced 90% of the people who are "interested" in gaming on this site are either: A) A person with no life or friends and therefore their sole existence is to try and tear down other people for their choice of game, console or franchise that they enjoy B) A person who is A along with thinking that there is some console war going on and if they tear down a game or console, then they get royalties or favors from the company who they support. It's kinda pathetic if you ask me.....I would love to have objective conversations about gaming but all I can find is a measuring contest going on. Could care less whether you agree with this or not but the first step in rehab is admitting this is you. I remember when this site used to be respectable and a good place for news and discussion. Now it's borderline not even good for news anymore since a lot of it is blogs and flamebait.... Anyway, carry on because let's face it.....90% of you have nothing else to do
Go to the forums if you want an intellectual conversation, the front page was taken over by ignorant fanboys a whiles back.
xbox people make sure u do a good beta test on those maps and find as many glitches as possible so the ps3 owners will get the less buggier version of the maps
PS3 MW2=7 million 360 MW2=10 million
They haven't fixed the damn game yet! People who shell out 60 bucks deserve quality gaming experiences. MW2 is NOT that game. Of course, the hardcore fanboys will fork over the cash for this POS game. BAAAA! My fellow intelligent gamers, do NOT buy this crap. Expect and DEMAND quality first and foremost!
