    Kicking off the Microsoft press briefing with a medium-sized bang, as executive Don Mattrick announced a three-year deal with Activision that guarantees all future Call of Duty DLC--including map packs and other add-ons--will launch first on the Xbox 360.   
      
    Do note that this deal does not make all Call of Duty DLC exclusive to the Xbox. It merely stipulates that all future add-ons will launch on the Xbox 360 before the PC and PS3. 
     
    If you're going to continue paying for Call of Duty DLC on the 360 before the PS3, you'll be able to start this fall with Call of Duty: Black Ops--the first title to fall inside of this timed "exclusivity first" deal.

    So harsh to PS3 owners.  Although I do wonder how they actually define "exclusive" as they have had pretty shaky definitions of that in the past.

    I loved how they included CoD as one of the big Xbox "three" because it gets overpriced DLC first.
     
    Mappack DLC splits the community, it needs to stop.

    Kind of shitty. Could be worse though. Could be xbox 360 exclusive and to make up for the lost sales they could charge twice as much...Oh shit, I shouldn't give them ideas.

    As if this really makes much of a difference. 360 users can't play against PS3 users, so It doesn't really matter.

    I don't really mind if they're exclusive or not. I don't buy much DLC for games anyway, so even if they are exclusive I don't see a real need for me to be buying it. Unless it's truly amazing I'll stay away from purchasing DLC.

    This seems like a really bad idea. I doubt it will affect sales much at all, but it definitely will piss off PS3 owners.

    This does not strike me as a necessary move on Microsoft's part.  If users do not have both the PS3 and 360, then it doesn't really matter to them when the map packs come out.  If they want to get their COD on in the newest maps, it is going to happen on the platform they bought it on.  If people are like me and own both, are they seriously going to be a FPS on the Playstation?  Obviously people like me have more money than sense and have a Gold membership on Live.  I am going to go out of a pretty firm limb and say that there are more dudes on the 360 playing online than on the Playstation Network.   And so, you'd likely buy it for the 360 anyway. 
     
    I'm just saying, Microsoft should have published a few more new and interesting Arcade games than bought the ability to say "And the first map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops will be exclusive* to the 360!"
