Modern Warfare 2's Resurgence map pack fires up PSN

PlayStation Store Update: Shooter's second $15 DLC hits Sony's online storefront; Monkey Island Special Edition 2: LeChuck's Revenge available for PS3, Persona 3 for PSP digital download.

It's another busy week on the PlayStation Network. Last week Sony launched its paid PlayStation Plus subscription service and made Sucker Punch's inFamous available for download. This week might exceed the fervor of the prior, thanks in part to add-on content for Infinity Ward's billion-dollar game.

One of the most prominent digital releases this week is the $15 Resurgence map pack for Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The pack, which was released on Xbox Live a month ago, features five maps, two of which are recycled from the original Modern Warfare.

Modern Warfare 2 DLC surges to PS3.

Available this week as digital download for the PlayStation 3 are two new titles. The first of which is Monkey Island Special Edition 2: LeChuck's Revenge ($9.99). The game centers around the clumsy, yet earnest pirate Guybrush Threepwood. The title originally launched in 1991, and the special edition has been updated with enhanced visuals, an in-game hint system, and an updated musical score.

The second title added to the PS3 download hub was Family Feud ($9.99). Like the television show bearing the same name, the game pits two families against each other, tasking them with answering questions verily. The game also has a multiplayer mode for both local and online gameplay.

Notable batches of downloadable content hitting the store this week include the Aliens vs. Predator Bughunt DLC ($6.99), add-on content for Dragon Age: Origins by the name of Leliana's Song ($6.99), Danny Way's Hawaiian Dream ($6.99) for Skate 3, and a heap of Marvel costume packs for Little Big Planet ($1.99-$5.99).

On the PSP download front, Sony added three new titles this week. The first is Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable ($39.99). This PSP version of Persona 3 was released in Japan in 2009 and made its way to North America this week. The handheld iteration is an updated version of the PlayStation 2 role-playing game and lets gamers play as a female protagonist, among other new additions.

Another PSP title available now for digital download is the film tie-in for this Friday's Despicable Me ($29.99). In the game, players will jump into the shoes of Gru, the supervillian, and attempt the greatest (or possibly the silliest) heist in history: stealing the moon.

The final PSP title hitting the download store this week was Chameleon Legacy ($4.99). In the title, players will match colors on their playfields using "several" characters and a variety of game modes, though the quantitative specifics of either were not noted.

Sony added four PSP Minis to the store this week, including Widget's Odyssey ($1.99), The Mystery of the Crystal Portal ($4.99), 5-in-1 Arcade Hits ($3.99), and 4X4 Jam ($4.99).

On the music game front, Rock Band welcomes a 12-pack from Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Guitar Hero adds a triple shot of Queen songs.

A full list of the week's deals and new PlayStation Store content, including themes, wallpapers, demos, discounts, and add-on content, is available on the PlayStation Blog.

Hope Black Ops will be better than Modern Warfare 2! Also, the Waw map packs are way better than these map packs for MW2! I got to kill zombies in the new waw mps and not sit there and get killed my a camper in a trailer park! $10 map pack with more and better content value is more recommended than a crappy $15 one.

Bobby Kotick is the satan of the gaming industry,plucking every last feather off his golden goose...but I massively enjoy MW2 online so the map packs unfortunately make sense although my wallet's wincing. If you play MW2 a lot, it's probably worth the money, if not, don't bother!

What gets on my nerves is that the games will go down in price...but the DLC NEVER does. I call shenanigans.

All you guys bending down and paying $15 for a map pack are the real culprits in ruining the gaming industry. Bobby Kotick is a greedy sob, but you're the ones giving him your money. Stop buying crappy rushed games and their many add ons, and these guys are going to have to reconsider their stance or go out of business. I personally miss the days of a long, engaging single player campaign, and many multiplayer maps out of the box + free content updates.

@GearsofRage9 It has none, it just gets all call of duty DLC releases before the PS3 does....Microsoft wasted their money on that one.

@Black_Adder_ : Well, I'm one person who won't. I bought MAG on launch, and never looked back. Great game. MW2 isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination either, but when you compare it to other games in terms of content updates, then it's dwarfed. Why pay 30$ for 10 more maps when you could get game-changing updates for free, a la TF2?

Nothing makes me laugh more than little kiddes crying about how much MW2 sucks and that $15 is too much to pay. MW2 is a quality product and if I can prolong the enjoyment for $15 - that's a steal and a great value to me. I'ld rather be playing a great game with more maps, than putting that $ towards an OK game. Good for Activision for putting out a great product - they earned that $15. You think it's too much? Fine. Why cry about it? Just move on. So much whining, jeez.

I can't believe that activisions CEO is really trying to ruin the gaming industry, I saw a interview and this man is really trying to ruin gaming over his greed for money. Its truly sad mate...

I'll be flamed, but I really think MW2 is garbage (without even playing that game). If you really want to have good FPS experience on PS3 - go for MAG (I live in that game now). It's a game where devs thought about gameplay, not the graphics.

Yeah it sucks they charged 15 bucks for 3 new maps and 2 that have already been in modern warfare but if your not buying it then why are you b!tching to other gamers about it? write a letter to Infinity Ward about their pricing. dont cry about it to the same people who are pissed about it.

I have MW2 on my PS3. I'm 8 prestige and fully legit. Yes, i play a lot. But i didnt buy the first map pack. I will not buy this second one either. Case close.

@Gelugon_baat: You won't find any - publishers rarely release sales data on digital downloads, because they're trying to force the DD agenda and fear negative publicity when it transpires that it's not doing nearly as well as they claim.

I own a xbox 360. i have MW2. HOWEVER, I REFUSE TO PAY $15 FOR A MAP PACK. LET ALONE BUY 2 @ THAT PRICE EACH! ESPECIALLY WHEN THE GAME HAS SOLD OVER 20 MILLION COPIES! map packs for a game that sells so many copies should be free. I WILL NEVER PAY MORE THAN $10 FOR ANY DLC, AND IT BETTER BE GOOD FOR ME TO BUY IT! i bought 3 map packs for COD WAW that came to a total of $30 and was worth the price. MW2 two little map packs ain't worth $30.

I was foolish enough to buy the 1st map pack, but I will NEVER buy a map pack from Activision.NEVERR. My MW2 game disc broke, im glad it did! I would hav never boughten these maps after I found out wat the 1st one were. ANYONE WHO STILL BOUGHT THE 2ND ONE AFTER BUYING THE 1ST ONE IS A TOOOOOL

Just curious how many people already bought the map pack even though they said they won't? I myself didn't buy any MW 2 map pack. $15 too much to waste on few maps full of boosters and cheaters.

I went to PSN to see how much each map pack would cost. $15 dollars is A LOT of money for just Five maps, I honestly would rather Spend that on any cheap game no matter how horrible. Why is a little map Pack so pricey?

The map packs are just way too expensive. Bring new game modes instead

In March, the game's Stimulus Package map pack debuted exclusively on Xbox Live and sold 2.5 million copies at $15 a pop in the first week. Now I see where most of the suckers are and it's pretty sad if you ask me. How long before more companies see this and think it's ok to charge $15.00 for crap. I see the next map pack costing $20.00 just as long as the sheep keep paying for it..

@gogly I agree completely, a full fledged expansion pack would be worth the money, plus it would add a ton of new stuff like guns new maps etc.... guess ill go back to playing rainbow six 2 again. god bless the days when we had a actual expansion for the games we loved. @aaronfhff123 Your completely right on that one...

sk8oridie44

I had literally, 23 people (Yes I counted them) ask me when the maps are coming to the PSN yesterday... I was so furious, I told them you guys are idiots to get these maps and just making it okay for Activision to charge for overpriced DLC. Their response? They didn't care. As soon as it came out, people started buying it. These are the SAME gamers that will destroy the gaming industry by helping Activision... BTW, nice new release on the PSN, love extra content for plus users, and loving Patapon!

@gogly They did give us an expansion pack! It was called Modern Warfare 2. It had new guns, perks and maps for MP and 3 new acts for the campaign! People often think MW2 is a full length game because of it's price and IW claims it is a full length game...don't be fooled though because MW2 is just an expansion of MW. If MW2 was a full length game it would have a longer campaign, guns would be able to paint people red like in W@W and you would see gore.
