E3 2010: Xbox 360 will get all new Call of Duty map packs first until 2012

Microsoft's E3 press conference started off with a bang with footage of Call of Duty: Black Ops. A gameplay demo showing you clearing a tunnel and firing from the cockpit of a helicopter was followed by a surprising announcement from Microsoft's Senior Vice President of Interactive Entertainment Don Mattreck. Until 2012, all new map packs for the Call of Duty franchise will be available on the 360 first. It's not clear yet as to how long the lead on other consoles and platforms will be.

Above: PS3 and PC players will get future Call of Duty updates after 360 players. But how long the wait will be is still unclear

    Others have said it but I will too. World at War was not shown at this E3. recaptcha: Gerbil Correspondents

    Huh. Pity I haven't downloaded any of them so far and probably never will since for about the same amount that these stupid things cost, I could get a Mass Effect 2 DLC chapter and any of the numerous Xbox Arcade games ; )

    Oh well I'm not that excited for Black Ops' multiplayer I'm more interested in the coop.

    "Microsoft's E3 press conference started off with a bang with footage of Call of Duty: World at War" Tyler you might want to correct that quickly lol.

    Where the hell does Microsoft get the idea they shouldn't include the PC in these exclusivities? They own the rights to that too last time I checked...

    1. i dont but dlc map packs 2. Blacks Ops will be my last CoD anyway 3. MS are jerks

    MS must be more desperate than we though if they think a multi platform game with exclusive content just 1 month before PS3 version will tip things in their favour now. Wonder what MS paid for this "privilege"
  • db1331 - June 14, 2010 6:34 p.m.

    Oh noes! Now I will have to wait an extra month or more before I can refuse to pay for recycled maps. Whatever will I do?
  • thor0997 - June 14, 2010 6:32 p.m.

    Wait... PC too? Thats odd usually the other way around. PC first then consols. But if Microsoft is willing to foot the bill then they get it. I wonder if this exclusive thing is to put the 360 further into the lead or to just put the PS3 futher behind? BAAH! Corperations are spys that use money to backstab other corperations!
