Modern Warfare 2 Map Pack DLC: Is it Too Expensive?

If you are a fan of Modern Warfare 2 no doubt you will be interested in purchasing the ‘Stimulus Map Pack’ when it is launched, however a lot of our readers seem very unimpressed with the confirmed price.

When the DLC arrives on March 30th you will be able to buy the map pack for 1200 Microsoft Points at the Xbox Live Marketplace, this equates to $15 which is identical to the PC and PS3 pricing.

There were three map packs released for Call of Duty: World at War, map pack one costs $10 (800 Microsoft Points) and consisted of four new maps, three of which were multiplayer maps, another was a new Nazi Zombie map. The Other two map packs also cost the same amount, each featured 3 multiplayer maps and 1 new Zombie map.

As you have probably heard there will be five multiplayer maps in this pack, three of which are completely new maps, the other two are from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, for more details regarding this map pack check out our previous post.

I will buy the download content regardless of the price (within reason) as I play the game at least 2 hours a night, however I do feel that $10/800 Microsoft Points would have been a much fairer price, especially as two of the maps are ported from COD4 what do you think?
