    I still think these map packs are ridiculously overpriced. Just content wise it's a horrible bargain. You gain a few new multiplayer maps and that's it. For $15. I can go buy the Borderlands DLC for $10 a pop and get tons of new areas, weapons, quests, enemies, etc. Just saying.

    You think Activision care that their products are massively overpriced? They always sell and make them easy money, just imagine the profit they made of the DLC's alone [​IMG]

    I've seen several quotes in the past where Bobby Kotick said they would raise prices higher if they could get away with it, too. One of the many reasons I stay away from any game with an Activision logo on it.

    Once they start with the "Online subscription plan" i guess the CoD series would die a quick death.
    Long live Battlefield and Medal of Honor! xD

    I didn't buy any of the map packs. Didn't play much after the first map pack came out.

    And yeah, they are way overpriced, and the game is full of killstreak campers.

    I'm rather looking forward to Black-Ops, especially if they'll have another horde mode. Nazi Zombies was a great idea., really fun too.

    I wonder how many people would have bought the two mw2 ones if they wasn't overpriced? [​IMG]

    I bought none of the map packs. Good thing my brother is such a schmuck. He buys them day one, and I just use his PSN account to download them on my shit.

    Bought one, shared it, then someone shared back with me the 2nd maps , 1 for the price of 2 (Ps3 i LOVE you)

    this subscription fee (if it exists) would suck balls, if they make it optional then that would be great (as in subscribers get like more double XP weekends, and maybe a weapon or 2 more) something of the sort, but a subscription to actually play the game , well Activision can go fuck themselves for all i care.
