Epic Fail

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.

MW2 Stimulus Package

I was somewhat surprised at the results of my poll a few posts ago about the price of the Modern Warfare 2 Map Pack 1. Quite a few people are going to sit this one out for what I believe is a good reason.

First lets talk about the fact that the price will be $5 more than a Map Pack usually costs. They justify this by saying that there are more maps. However, two of those maps are going to be COD4 maps. Why should we have to pay for maps that we can go play in COD4? Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great that IW is bringing back some old maps but the players shouldn’t have to pay for them.

Now lets talk about how IW is ignoring the consumer and just pretending that nothing is wrong. That bothers me more than anything else. When the care package glitch was taking over the game where was IW? It took forever for them to put out a patch! Legitimate complaints such as that or the fact glitchers can just keep coming back by changing a simple code is what infuriates us as players.

A game that was so anticipated, by a reputable company, with a successful franchise really blew it on this game. I, along with thousands of others, expected more from you IW.  While many of us continue to play this game others have traded it in. Frustrated and disappointed.

MW2 Map Pack 1

As of yesterday Infinity Ward released this web page… Click me!

Those of us who are intelligent enough understood this as the official date announcement for Modern Warfare 2 ‘s new map pack.You may also notice that it only lists a date for the Xbox Live release. Back before the game was even released it was announced that Xbox would get the first map pack exclusivly for one month before the PS3. Therefore it is a possibility that the PS3 will have the maps somewhere around the end of April.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m just as excited as everyone else about the new maps. But shouldn’t a few more important things be fixed before DLC is released? Instead of creating new maps IW should have created an all inclusive patch that fixes some of the things the previous one missed.

IW should be working to fix their game not add to the chaos. How many glitches will come with this map pack? Hopefully IW didn’t rush the release of this DLC in the hopes of silencing the angry gamers. Any glitches with this pack will send players into an absolute uproar.

All I can say is that I and many other COD fans expected more from IW. Hiding in your office and turning off everything to hide from the consumers is useless. We will find you. Fix your game!
