Just as we thought, Activision has confirmed at E3 that when Modern Warfare 3 is released the Xbox 360 will receive map packs before the Playstation 3. This has normally been the pattern for Call of Duty games and it seems that Activision is going to continue with this process.
The news came from E3 after a live demo of the game was played to an audience which showcased exciting new features for the series such as underwater gameplay and fire fights in a submarine, you can see a video showing this here. It was after this that the news was revealed about the DLC.
It was at last year’s E3 that Microsoft had signed a 3 year deal to Activision for DLC to come to Xbox 360 before Playstation 3 says Playstationlifestyle, so we can also expect the similar pattern to follow when the next generation of Call of Duty games arrive.
While many Playstation 3 gamers may be a little frustrated that they can not get their hands on DLC when Xbox 360 gamers can, they can still, for now, keep the excitement for Modern Warfare 3’s release like the rest of us have. We will wait to hear more details about the game in due course but for now tell us what you think about the Xbox 360 gamers gaining access first to MW3 DLC, let us know in the comments section.
