Microsoft is no stranger to timed exclusives. Major downloadable add-ons for games like Grand Theft Auto IV, and Fallout 3, came to Xbox Live first, and then PC and PS3 at a later date.
Looks like the same is happening with Modern Warfare 2‘s first batch off downloadable content, as Microsoft today said the DLC will be exclusive to Xbox Live for 30 days.
Talking with Eurogamer, a Microsoft spokesperson said “We have a 30-day timed exclusive on the Modern Warfare content packs, so it will be available on other platforms, but you get to try and play on Xbox 360 first.”
As for the DLC itself, developer Infinity Ward has yet to detail the content, but it has been promised for Spring 2010, so we’re likely to learn more very soon.
