Call of Duty: Black Ops DLC – Map Packs on Xbox 360 first

If you are a PS3 owner thinking of purchasing an Xbox 360 Slim we have some news which may make your decision for you, when Call of Duty: Black Ops DLC is released, it will be coming to Xbox Live first.

This has been the case with both of the map packs which have been released for Modern Warfare 2, the first map pack (Stimulus Package) was first available on Xbox Live on March 30th, whilst PS3 and PC owners had to wait until May 4th. The second map pack (Resurgence Package) arrived on Xbox Live on June 3rd, whilst PS3 and PC gamers had to wait until July 3rd.

Yesterday at E3 2010 Activision confirmed this news, apparently they have reached a new deal with Microsoft which will gives the Xbox 360 exclusivity with all Black Ops map packs (probably for a month or so), which will no-doubt leave PS3 and PC gamers frustrated.

If you missed Microsoft’s Keynote you will have missed Treyarch’s impressive gameplay footage videos from Black Ops, you can see these here and here.

Has this news made convinced you to by an Xbox 360 Slim?

the ps3 is better becuse you dont have to pay twice as much for you internet  bill  becuse you pay for xbox live and also use your other internet connetion

Keep in mind, the PS3 would have less video game freaks then xbox, not because of cost but because more people buy the Xbox then PS3.

Plus how often do you actually use blue ray? You get blue ray just to pay extra money to get a disk with a quality that doesn’t make any difference unles you were to be using a screen the size of a movie theator.

ps3 works perfect, blue ray player which works amazing, no internet bill, and it doesn’t look as awfull as that xbox. therefor if you want class and don’t like to pay for something which is free elsewhere, you buy a playstation 3.

wll the ps3 if you wanna lay it down sideways we have no worries about getting our disk fcked up and ruined like the xbox any ways the reason that xbox is getting it early maybe cuz they pay for the game plus for monthly internet bill plus gold and last the dlc’s ps3 jxt internet and games and dlc   seee the ps3 is for people that are not as much game freaks like the x box bcuz we dont have to pay gold so 1 month is worth wasting fck xbox i had 5 of them and all… Read more »

It sucks that PS3s don't get something similar to red rings cause I'll be laugh'in my but off when your house burns down due to overheating. Plus, I have had my Xbox 360 Elite for about 4 years now with no problems; after leaving my console on for 12 hours and playing it most the time, I felt the button of the consol and it was barely warm; my Gameboy games warmer then that thing! It all depends on location of the console; I have mine in an open area on a table and clean dust every few months and… Read more »

Ive gone 3 years with an xbox and I havent gotten the red rings of death. Not a single one. Who gives a fuck about blu ray? Who really watches it? And for payed online? We do it for better servers. While ps3 has shitty ass servers.

I have a xbox 360 slim. I have never had any problems with it. My best friend has a ps3 and I play it almost as much as my 360 so we can play together. I prefer the xbox controller but thats just a personal preference. I do believe online game play is better on the xbox. I dont get kicked or have connection issues near as often as he does and i have less lag. He has his game on a 46" lcd and I have mine on a 26" lcd. And that could be why my xbox seems… Read more »

I have both xbox 360 and the PS3. Will never go back to xbox 360. It serves as a paper weight on my entertainment center. I do wish they would bring out the map packs to both systems at the same time.

What you Xbox fans don't understand is the Xbox is old high compressed 8 gig holding cds, a blue ray can hold over 50 gigs and the system came out over 1 year later with newer tec. In the electronic world 1 year is like 10 years so Xbox only can compete because the game makers do not make the game different on both systems, they just burn the crappy Xbox copy in blue ray so ps3 owners have to deal with crappy compressed games and small maps until the Xbox is a blue ray and has a cpu that… Read more »

if they want to put it on xbox first let them do it! Stop complaining bout it damn! And y would I want to buy and xbox slim after buying the first xbox 360 just so it can still not outmatched the PS3. but overall they the 360 and playstation r bout to the same so it just bout preference! And the map packs r kinda of expensive buy if ur gonna play them enough then it worth the money! All of y'all r just dumb

Crystal Gail Colvin

i agree with J-Dog34 i have owned an xbox and we had to turn it in 3 times in 1 year… my ps3 has givin me no problems except for with black ops always getting kicked out of rms and stupid crap like that… i dont have to pay to play online with my friends.. not everyone can afford all these monthly bills people keep trying to scrap out of everyones pocket… you dont get better internet service because your paying to play… u get stuff earlyer like the map pack.. ooo big whoop whoop for you

Guest 77077

ok the reason microsoft gets the dlc first is cuz they pay extra because if it werent for them getting it earlier everyone would play ps3 because of its just a better system plain and simple and xbox is scared that thell get pwned if they dont pay extra to get things first

Yup I'm just going to get an x box just cuz they have the map pack first lol who gives a sh!t like relly it's just a month and sorry but I'm paying 99$ for Internet a year plus ps3 has a bleu ray player boom the only thing x box has better then ps3 is there controller's but that's it ps3 is better!

Who cares about the box getting the maps first as a old 360 owner and now a ps3 owner i can say id rather wait and get them a few months after than having to play on screwed up maps with bugs since no amount of testing can provide the results you want untill you stress test it aka send it live.

Finally the DLC comes on Xbox live first yeah okay no problem, Microsoft is wasting money because in about 3 hours after release there will be vids on youtube showing people how to glitch out of the map. Since MS own the contract for the PC aswell as Xbox Live it would seem there neglecting half of there income, which means there not as shít hot as the fan boys make them out to be.

I own both Consoles multiple times and trust me PS3 has just as meny issues s the Xbox does, but while i'm here let me correct a few misunderstandings. 1) The Xbox has RROD BUT the PS3 has YLOD. (Both caes practically fixed now) 2) The xbox doesn't need Blu Ray Player as it still uses a HDMI cable. (Still HD) 3) The Xbox controller is big but the layout is better in my opinion. 4) Sony IS NOT making the users pay monthly. Instead… Read more »

Yeah well i owned an xbox once and i had hell with it had to send it in 4 times finally got rid of the P.O.S. but i dont understand why Activision is releasing on xbox first and not Ps3…. Ps3 has by far better graphics and presentations of their games and systems than microsoft. Sony makes you want to buy their systems/ merchandise. To me its pretty sh***y not to release at the same time. But the “Pro” for it is that by the time it comes out for Ps3 it will be a better debugged version than what… Read more »

i have a ps3 and an xbox 360 and me personally i think that xbox is alot better not only cuz you get the online map packs earleir but also cuz the online gameplay is alot more smoother so pretty much you pay for what you get with the xbox but you also pay for what you get with the ps3 cuz it doesnt cost to go online so you cant expect the online to be as great as the xbox's online

i have a PS3 and iv played xbox 360 before it sucks compared to PS3 and the mw2 pap packs did NOT come out first on xbox 360 i went to school not knowing that their was a map pack out and my friend has an xbox 360 and he said he got on his xbox b4 he went to school and there was a pap pack that wasnt there the night before and when i got home i had the map pack in ps store same thing with both they came out on the same time

Adam

Its the same game, releasing the same map pack… why does Xbox get it first? Is it because your fail rate is so high and you charge for network? But don't the Xbox users still have to pay the same amount of money that the ps3 users do for the pack? Did treyarch get a cut fof xbox live sales… i think not, so the fact that you pay for a network means jack shit!

I have both systems and they are both awesome in there own special ways. First would be the online experience is better on XBOX due to the better operating system and user friendly interface. Everytime I access the Playstation network and Dpad my way through the cross media platform I feel lost and never trully get anywhere. XBL strives to change and be as user friendly as a MAC computer ;D. I’d say that every year to year half they update and totally revampe there interface.

Ok fanboys listen up correction 1: both systems have 1080p and the blu ray in the ps3 has virtually no effect in the graphics because the games are the exact same format if there for both consoles. I have both and they are the exact same, very little difference. Correction 2: xbox live has many more features than psn, and is a richer online experience, xbox clearly wins here. Correction 3: the new xbox slim is a lot more durable and have a very low failure rate and also the ps3s disc drive tends to break down so in my… Read more »

This is just the way it is, and your complaining about it won't change anything. Get it if you want it, or don't. I, for one, am getting it the first day on the 360, no matter the cost.

Most people with xbox 360’s are people who had ps2’s and wanted to get a ps3 but did not have enough money for one so were left with xbox. They were then jelouse of people with ps3’s so they started to become xbox fans. Online services for ps3 are not as good as xbox but the difference is not worth the money you need to pay for xbox live.

You are argueing over different opinions. People expect and appreciate different things relating to both machines. They both have strong points and weaknesses (nothing is perfect). It is a matter of personal taste and experience, neither of which can be called wrong or right. To tell someone that their personal taste in something is wrong, is futile and will be met by defence. People are different and it is better to embrace this, rather than argue and hate someone because of it.

Seriously? I used to be a play station fan but there games… SUCK !!!! I guess thats just a matter of opinion. I must agree on the fact of Xbox over pricing and charging their customers for rediculous things but none the less i still choose xbox over playstation. I played a PS3 and to be honest i didn't like it. Just for the record to i didn't notice that much of a difference in graphics. Besides i heard (whether true or not) that with blu ray discs once scratched cost heaps to repair or they just don't work.

I have an XB 360, and a PS3. Kinect is *OK* youll disconnect from its camera every few hours, and the XB 360 overheats, there graphics are nice though.
PS3 has just amazing graphics, and amazing CoD players. ive seen Xbox live hate mail on vids, you can't do that on the PS3. they have a mod that censors things… so as a PS3 gamer: Microsoft, **** you.

i once was too a PS fanboy until i got in depth with the 360.. now i love them both pretty closely but for the most part the 360 does have better graphics for most multi platform games and the online game play varies between the time and day and most of all your internet connection.. it sucks that xbox charges but to me its worth it for what i do and the amount of people i talk to.. unlike the PS u can only text unless ur playing the same game and even then some PS games dont allow… Read more »

sony charging for psn and online gaming is jus a rumor as of now. as far as i know you pay for the premium thingy for demos and stuff. and the host migration thing is the same on ps3. that damn patch screwed things for both systems and i know this because i watch my bro in law play on his 360 slim and it does the same thing on his that it does on my ps3. i haven't had any problems on my psn that my bro in law hasn't had on his 360 slim

y is everyone getting so defensive over both consoles? lol some games come out earlier for a particular system probly because that company shelled out a bunch of extra money. i think it only makes sense to argue over who gets what map packs first is if ps3 and xbox players could play eachother. if xbox gets it first it's not like ps3 users log on and you pick'em off every chance you get while they learn the map. and you can't really say things like "on paper ps3 is better because of this" and then come up with this… Read more »

All I know from reading just two pages is that PS3 people do not know how to spell worth a damn and the XB360 people do know how to spell. I'm a PC Gamer so i get the map packs later than EVERYONE but I know my PC is better than your PS3 Or Xbox.

It's really sad how quickly people get defensive over a console when they both do the same thing… I own both, however I get on my 360 more due to friends. Maybe seeing that little blade of grass outside the map because you have a blue ray player makes the PS3 better can be your arguement for the fanboys of the Ps3. And the 360 fanboys can say that you pay for a better service. I'm just saying in my opinion they both do the same shit.

On paper, the Playstation 3’s Cell engine is more capable than XBOX 360’s triple-core Xenon CPU. However,the XBOX 360 is much easier to develop for. In other words, a lot of the Cell’s power is going to waste. Although that is expected to change eventually, as always seems to happen with Sony’s consoles (compare early PS2 games to current games, and the same goes for PS1), one year later we’re still waiting for someone to fully exploit the system. Another indication that the PS3 is harder to develop for is the fact that almost all multiplatform games arrive weeks –… Read more »

Xenos simply has more power – higher fillrate, higher pixel processing power, higher vertex processing power, and better memory architecture. If you look at multiplatform games and contrast the graphics on the two consoles, XBOX 360 almost always leads. Whether they use a higher resolution or higher quality antialiasing, games often look better and/or play smoother on the 360

A very common argument in most flame wars is that the Playstation 3 simply “has better graphics”. I’m not sure where that argument came from; Sony obviously did a good job of marketing the system. However, the argument is entirely false. The Xenos GPU on the XBOX 360 is superior the RSX on the PS3. And thats a fact

and as far as the arguement of why it took like three revamps of the same system to finally get rid of the rrod and actually put innate wifi connector. wifi speed is based on your internet provider. and if you wanna pay for three of the same systems to finally get everything in one. it's there money. i'm sure alot of people have paid for the original ps3 and the new slim for one reason or the other.

from what it sounds like. some of you are jus making up things to make the other system look bad. both systems are good systems. i have seen more than my fair share of friends who's xbox have had the rrod due to software problems and overheating problems. and i have one friend who's ps3 went to crap. on black ops i get on matches jus as fast as my bro in law gets in matches on his 360 slim (he's in the room above mine). both have had problems due to the shitty patch which we had to download… Read more »

I’m going to set things straight. I own ps3, xbox, and wii. First off, wii sucks. Now that we got that out of the water, let’s move on. Ps3 costs more because it’s worth more. It’s not that complicated. Blu-Ray, better graphics, better hardrive, perks like the Sony Bravia connectivity or free online. Xbox makes you pay for online why? Because microsoft can. They know that xbox owners will still pay for it, regardless if there’s another system that doesn’t make you pay. It’s called today’s market. Those of you who think one is obsolute to the other are wrong.… Read more »
