So, remind me how many quallity Steam Sale games could you buy for the same price as the four new maps?
As it's Treyarch not IW I'm hoping they follow the old pricing and put these maps up for under a tenner rather than just under fifteen quid like IW did although only time will tell. Even if they do come up to around the fifteen quid mark, they're all new maps (take note IW, I don't like paying for the same thing twice!) and if you play a lot of COD, they do tend to be worth picking up in the long run because you get many, many hours of play for your money.
I question how much influence Activision have over pricing rather than the dev's.
They milk it for however much they think they can get away with. Sadly MW2 seems to have set the benchmark very high for map packs.
They're 1,200 MS points on the Xbox 360, not sure what that equates to on the PC and PS3.
