Epic Fail

30 Mar

If you are attempting to download the new Modern Warfare Stimulus Package, might I suggest putting it on hold.

IW did their part with the pack, MS dropped the ball with the patch. Here are a few of the latest updates from the MS crew…

The Stimulus Package needs a Title Update and it didn’t go out properly. We’re pushing it out now – it won’t be long.

If you’re getting “Can’t download the update” that’s us putting the latest update in place. Excuse our dust, we’ll be done ASAP.(via @thevowel)

So sit tight kiddos and keep an eye on your twitter screens.


Thanks for the feedback! I’m going to be sitting with production & giving you updates as they come regarding when you can expect to play. ~(via @fourzerotwo)

Right now the team (and @thevowel) is getting things in order so this will be fixed VERY soon (within hours.)~ (via @majornelson)

BTW: When I say hours, many of you may have it fixed before then. That’s a worst case scenario. Thanks to many of your for your patience. ~(via @majornelson)


Alright, thanks to @thevowel and the team over at #xboxlive- the #MW2 title update is now live (just downloaded it), the DLC is good to go. (via @fourzerotwo)

Ok peeps systems should be a go as of now. For those who are still getting errors or can’t join games, be patient. They are still working on it and you are NOT the only on that has issues. Remember there is a world outside your own bedroom full of people just as pissed as you.

    I’m at work and probably won’t be able to download it until tomorrow anyway. Sure it sucks for the people who are able to plat and are waiting, but at least this one’s on Microsoft, not Infinity Ward.

    Now lets just hope the maps aren’t a waste of money.

    My mate called to say its ‘screwed’ so I guess its wait and see.

    A bit frustrating that they knew the release date and should have had it sorted but I’d rather them get it right now.

    I too am at work so if we have to wait a bit longer – so be it

    @keohane15 Yea I’m at school all day, so hopefully its fixed by tonight/tomorrow when I will actually have time to play

    @dvotee you couldn’t be more right! All the time they had to prepare and now this!!

    @Marc Twitter is full of pissed off MW2 players that just want to play sans new maps. If I was at home I’d be one of them. Sucks that everyone has to suffer for this one issue.
