Modern Warfare 2 DLC – Who says 1200 points is overpriced?

55 second read

Modern Warfare 2

When the Modern Warfare 2 DLC was announced and priced the Internet exploded with complaints about the price, everyone and their mother refused to pay for it and we all declared this to be the end of the MW2 phenomenon.

I still think 1200pts for a few extra maps is insane and if you agree it puts you squarely in the minority.

Microsoft has announced today that over 1 million people downloaded the DLC in the first 24 hours and 7 days later that figure had grown to 2.5 million.

To put this into some perspective… 1 Microsoft point is worth about 10 cents (if you buy the 4200 block), so the map pack costs R120.

So in the last week gamers have spent R300 000 000 on the map pack, somehow I don’t think we proved our point about it being to expensive so expect the next map pack to be the same or even higher while they try and find the maximum amount we are willing to fork out.

    COD-MW2 is an awesome game, no doubt.
    But this is typical case of Milking it for what it’s worth.
    And theres no way in hell I’m paying that much for DLC.
    The game costs R700 and they charging R120 for 4 maps.
    Which is about 1/5th the cost of the game (17% I think)

    So much for voting with your wallet. As long as gamers keep supporting it, they will keep charging such high prices.

    This kind of reminds me of the folk who were going to “be voting with their wallets” with regards to Left for Dead 2 (and COD MW 2), and like the sheep that they are (most of them on the Steam petition sites) bought it and were playing it.
