Xbox 360 wins MW2 update shoot-out

Microsoft console to get DLC before PS3

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

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. ®
