Those with a paid subscription to Call of Duty: Elite can grab two new maps--Piazza and Liberation--on February 28. This is the same content that was made available to Xbox 360 gamers last month.

Activision did not mention when the maps will be made available to all PS3 Modern Warfare 3 players. However, the publisher said the first "content collection" will arrive sometime after its Xbox 360 debut in March.

Looking ahead, PS3 Call of Duty: Elite premium members can expect new Modern Warfare 3 content to arrive through October. For a full breakdown of what to expect, and when to expect it (relative to its initial launch for the Xbox 360), check out the Modern Warfare 3 content calendar.

The Call of Duty: Elite subscription service reached the 1-million-paid-users milestone within the first month of its November launch. Elite provides players with gameplay statistics, video sharing, and clan support features for free. Those who shell out for the $50 annual subscription will also receive all downloadable content released in the year, as well as exclusive video content and other perks
