I honestly wanted to believe in Activision, but that optimism ended today, as Infinity Ward revealed yesterday that the first DLC for Modern Warfare 2 will set gamers back $15.
Infinity Ward’s Robert “FourZeroTwo” Bowling appeared on Xbox Live spokesman Larry Hyrb’s podcast last night and confirmed the March 30 release date of “The Stimulus Package” exclusively for Xbox Live and that it’s going to cost and arm and a leg. Translation? 1200 MS Points/$15.
Now, that’d be fine and dandy if the DLC was a robust piece of multiplayer joy, but it’s five maps and two are remakes.
I’m boycotting it on the argument that if I throw my money at it, $15 could become the new norm.
