    Yeah...

    Not too long after releasing The Escalation map pack, they decide to crank out another. This one will be called Annihilation and will be available on the 28th of June for the 360 first(of course). Making it very clear that they just want our money -_-

    [​IMG] EDIT: My brother says that in addition to Annihilation, they're gonna pump out yet another map pack before the release of MW3.

    this is treyarch, they make craptons of map packs, less and less people buy each one as they keep adding more, fragmenting the community

    Wow, if people buy this that is pathetic. They announced a new game a while ago. What's the point of getting a map pack if it is going to be worthless in November?

    Many people skip one years worth of FIFA; I won't be buying FIFA12 this year because I bought FIFA11 last year, etc, and that's how a lot of people buy them. But not with CoD.

    Main reason is that the whole mass does it. If all your friends buy FIFA 12 and play that game, you're all alone with FIFA 11.
    Also another reason is the whole transfer market business. I for one will download FIFA 12 for sure, ASAP, because my favourite team has made a lot of transfers this season and in FIFA 12 they will be a lot stronger.

    the whole mass buys CoD map packs, and you're left out because everyone wants to play nothing but the new maps


    (i know this contradicts my first post, but for the social, active CoD players that have friends they play with all the time, they have to get the maps, just like for the active, social FIFA players)

    This map pack looks a fuckton better than the previous two. Especially the Zombies map. Jungle/Ruins theme? Hell yes!

    But in FIFA the updates (wintertransfers are an update, don't know any more) are free. But also less substantial than a map pack. I see no reason why to complain if people would buy this map pack. There are what, 4 new maps? Surely your friends won't play them forever and leave the original maps? You can just wait a few minutes or ask them to join your game.

    depends on your friends, some of them are just "so bored" of all the old maps and only want to play nuketown and the new ones, and everyone hates when you can't play the new ones because you're that one guy who doesn't have the map pack
    and then there's the zombie maps, only 2 came with the original game and this is the 3rd DLC map, which is just ridiculous, and again, people are bored of the old maps and want to play the new ones

    I don't know man, I'd rather have a solid fun map than some shitty new map. Like Carnival in MW2, it's from a DLC but it completely sucks. I much rather play a map from the original game that I've maybe already played 50 times than a crappy level.

    I can decide by myself fine if I want to buy a mappack or not. I've been unable to play with my friends loads of times because I didn't buy the game or I didn't have the console. I just decide on my own if I want to buy that product just to be able to play with my friends.

    Completely right about the Zombie maps, that's just clever/cruel marketing of Treyarch....

    I'm pissed, only because it hasn't even been two months since Escalation came out. I just bought the first two.

    i know, and it wears off eventually but there are always a few legitimately good maps in the map packs
    and that's pretty much what i'm saying, the whole map pack business model works because of peer pressure, if u want to play with all your friends, you're going to buy the map packs (or gameshare them [​IMG])

    And they're releasing another map pack about a month after this one!

    that brings the total to four. Which means people who have bought this title on launch day and buy all these maps have an acumulated a total of $120 on this game alone.

    and that''s not counting the people who bought hardened and prestige editions.

    I really think there should be a new rule or something, because all this hate for CoD when it's just talking about the Map Pack, it's nothing but spam. You can say the same thing about every little thing.

    "Oh new Mario? They just came out with one."
    "New Halo? They just came out with one"
    "More God of War? sigh, MILKING"
    "Ocarina of Time 3D? What was wrong with the first one?"

    Seriously guys, it's getting old all the hate that the series is getting. We get it, you don't like the games or anything, don't post in the thread then. Because posting the exact same thing over and over and over in every Call of Duty thread, is nothing but spam.
