Xbox 360 wins MW2 update shoot-out
Microsoft console to get DLC before PS3
The Xbox 360 has trumped the PlayStation 3 again, following Microsoft’s announcement that its console will be the first to secure a downloadable update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Microsoft – speaking on Major Nelson blog – stated that “the first Modern Warfare 2 content packs will be available exclusively first on Xbox Live” this Spring.
Robert Bowling, Creative Strategist at Infinity Ward, Modern Warfare 2’s developer, announced in November that a downloadable content update was in development for the must-have game, though Microsoft’s reference to “packs” suggests that at least two updates could be delivered to the Xbox 360.
Or are we just reading too much into it?
This isn’t the first time that PS3 owners have been short-changed. Two downloadable updates have already been released for Grand Theft Auto IV on the Xbox 360, while PS3 users haven’t received any fresh content for the game. ®
Yeh yeh yeh, whatever pal...... you keep telling yourself that :-)
and Infinity Ward have already said
that Microsoft are making a huge deal of a 1 week exclusivity deal..
Personally as a PS3 owner, I am happy to see Sony invest in good developers that deliver games like Uncharted 2 and Killzone2, rather than waste Xbox subscription money on timed exclusivity deals that are likely to do nothing more than attract the eyes of European and US anti-competitive regulators..
