First Modern Warfare 2 Map Pack Hits Xbox 360 On March 30

Try not to get all... mapathetic?

Fresh off of the SuperTwitter Hotwire 8000 (our proprietary device that lets us read Twitter posts and turn them into something resembling "news") is a post from Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling, which points people to mapathy.com. Image below!

So in case you were wondering when that first Modern Warfare 2 map pack was going to hit on 360, there you go. March 30. Unless I'm reading this wrong, of course. I mean, it could be anything, right? Right? Jeff Gerstmann on Google+

I can't decide if I like this or hate this whole Mapathy thing.

Posted by OmegaPirate

Is there any word on when the ps3 / pc releases of these maps are coming out?! either way great news for some new maps (even if some are cod4 ones xD)

Image speaks truth. Those crane lovin' fucks...

Balance the game a bit maybe?

Posted by ArchScabby

Hey thats my birthday, and I probably won't buy this!!!!

Posted by superscatman

Yeah, I'm curious about the Pc version. I bet you will have to pay for it.

agreed. I guess you could say we're mapathetic towards mapathy?
Posted by supermike6

Huh. Kinda clever. I might go back to MW2 if these new maps are good. Heck, even if they're shit I'll still go back.

Posted by Scooper

Actualy the cure to mapathy isn't to add more maps but to make the maps better in the first place.

Does Microsoft have to buy everything?Oh well.

@OmegaPirate: I read somewhere that IW confirmed that it's exclusive to the 360 for a month, just like the cod4 maps were, so ps3'll get it late april dunno about pc.

That's my birthday. Looks like I'm celebrating with some CoD

you always right
Posted by ArbitraryWater

I have been suffering from this Mapathy for a while. Hopefully this cure will be better designed than most of the MW2 maps.

Posted by jkz

Haha....wait, did they just suggest people may be getting tired of their game? That seems like poor marketing, but oh well.

Posted by MarkWahlberg

That's... an excellent marketing technique. 

Posted by lemon360

I've seen leaked vids of what appears to be legit maps from the upcoming map pack. Overgrown included.

NEVER!
 
Had to be done.

Lol staring at that image for about a minute and i only just got it. I'm such a moron :)
Posted by Daryl

This is great for all the mapathy suffers out there, but what about the same old crapathy sufferers who gained this condition from this franchise?

Posted by Whisperkill

I'm not so sure I want to get this. 

Posted by Forcen

I wonder how long the exclusivity lasts.

Posted by stephengotlost

Activision is mapathetic!

Does she come with the map pack?

Posted by Yzzerdd

So sick of map packs!

Posted by SlashDance

That ad is kind of stupid.

Posted by Rhombus_Of_Terror

looks like I'm well and truly mapped

"When will my Mapathy be cured?
 
NEVER."

Posted by ArchV1le

Pumped, so sick of most of the maps

Posted by AnEternalEnigma

The maps will be exclusive on Xbox Live for two weeks. They'll be on PS3 on April 13.

Posted by Cheapoz

I suffered from Lagathy, also Lack-of-a-region-filterathy.  
 
How about Glitchathy?
 
The cure? Trading in MW2 for BF:BC2. 
 
Also, since IW's job cuts, their marketing budget went from $800,000,000,00 to $8.

Posted by DeadDorf

I'll stick with the BF:BC2 multiplayer.

Posted by Milkman

I've already got my cure to mapathy. It's called Bad Company 2.

Mapathy is supposed to be funny?

Posted by Yzzerdd

I suffer from utter apathy for stale DLC like multiplayer mappacks.

Posted by Sarumarine

Aw crap. And I just prestiged. I'm going to have to play until I get the P90 and Marathon Pro back. No better way to explore new maps by running around with an SMG handy.

This is why I no longer play the game and will never buy ANY of the map packs.

In before
SHOW ME YOURE BOBIES

Posted by iam3green

cool, hopefully it is true that it is a map pack. people will probably have to wait a while for it to wait for it to come out on ps3 and PC.

Posted by Mooshu

I really hope we get more Spec Ops map.

Posted by addictedtopinescent

I quite like this mapathy thing

Same here. And it's gonna have free map packs so i don't ever see myself buying any call of duty maps.
