The modern military shooter that's sold an astonishing 14 million copies worldwide since November 2009 can check off another record-snapper: Fastest selling downloadable content pack. Released just nine days ago, the $15 Modern Warfare 2 map pack, dubbed "Stimulus Package" by Activision and time-exclusive to the Xbox 360, has been downloaded over 2.5 million times, 1 million of those in its first 24 hours of availability.
With the first downloadable add-on for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 due on Xbox 360 in under a week (Tuesday, March 30 to be exact) publisher Activision is continuing to detail its contents, this time in the form of five screenshots--one for each map.
Priced at 1200 Microsoft Points / $15, the appropriately named "Stimulus Package" will first be available on Xbox 360, with PC and PlayStation 3 releases to follow.
Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling maintained an optimistic tone when addressing morale at the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 studio following the dismissal of its top two executives and a subsequent lawsuit against Activision.
The first batch of downloadable multiplayer maps for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will hit the Xbox 360 on March 30, 2010.
Developer Infinity Ward revealed the date today with a satirical self-help site, noting that the Xbox Live download should help ease the symptoms of Mapathy: "a state of indifference to the same old maps on has been playing for the last several months."
Microsoft has begun issuing temporary bans to players taking advantage of an exploit in Modern Warfare 2, while Infinity Ward works on a patch to fix the issue. While the servers may be kept slightly cleaner for the efforts, the amount of control Microsoft holds over owners of their consoles, and the arbitrary way they are able to wield it, is troubling.
AMD has started shipping C3 stepping Phenom II processors.
The new stepping should allow for some lower operating voltages and power consumption, however, the TDP rating has not been changed.
The new Phenom II 945 and 955 Black Edition are still rated at 95W and 125W respectively. Bear in mind that AMD already reduced the TDP in previous revisions of some Phenom II CPUs.
No price change is expected for the C3 stepping models, and they should sell at the same price as C2 versions, around €120 for the 945 and €130 for the 955 BE.
