Could get a single MW2 map pack, featuring:
- 3 new multiplayer maps (2 old maps)

Or

Blacklight: Tango Down:
- 12 multiplayer maps
- 7 game modes (what you would expect, deathmatch and objective type modes)
- 4 players co-op missions
- full weapon customisation

How can people justify the price of the map packs now? It's a joke.

Oh, and Blacklight Tango Down was said to come out on July 7th by Major Nelson (but then it wasn't on the press release).

EDIT:
Confirmed to come out on July 7th now, 1200pts.

I never bought the MW2 map packs (such a ripoff in my opinion- especially since I don't really play that game anymore) and I'm going to wait for the reviews to come in before choosing whether to purchase Blacklight: Tango Down or not :P

I expect good things after the E3 previews. I sold MW2 long ago and just a fraction of that could have paid for Blacklight. :P

How could they before? Ultimately people will buy what they want. Thats how alot of gamers seem to work, throw value out the window.

It's not up to Microsoft, it was Activision's decision. They want to make as much profit as possible, as if normal copies of the game didn't make a crapload already.

But but but the words "Blacklight Tango Down" don't contain 'Call of Duty'. Oh my, whatever will we do. We gamers will shell out lots of money for anything with Call of Duty in the title. They should have called the game Blacklight Duty: Call of the Downed Tango. Then it would have sold millions.

I think the MW2 map packs would literally be at the bottom of the list for valued things to spend $15 on on Xbox Live.

I don't know.. that 1200 msp Stranglehold map pack is up there. It has more maps but literally has no online community and the rare chance you find someone won't have the map pack of just wants the 250G from it.

Also another fps on the arcade that is looking good is breach. No release date confirmed yet but I wouldn't expect it to be to far away. To be honest really there is ALOT of games on the arcade that are well worth the money you pay for them. A lot of people overlook the XBLA.

Yes, that was looking good too, but they said early summer, now I think it's due late summer. I hope it comes out sometime soon, but it wasn't even at E3.

I bought it for PC because my friends wanted some more maps and we enjoy them all except for overgrown, which is awful. It's expensive but I play enough to have gotten my money's worth.

Blacklight: Tango Down looks good to me and I will be getting it.

One of the best deals for $10 is the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Onslaught Mode which is alot of fun if played with 3 others that you know and have played this game online with before, because teamwork is really needed on this especially on hardcore.

They only fix glitches (after a long time), not the broken gameplay.

I'm was fairly hyped for Blacklight until I found out it was MP online only with no SP. My first priority would be to get DeathSpank then I'll get around to Tango Down. Thanks for the info though.

Well, you can play the co-op missions on your own if you want :P

Oh yeah, instead of waiting for reviews, people could play the trial. I forgot :P

Why is this out on a Wednesday? You'd think it would be a Tuesday or Thursday release like most other marketplace content. Nevertheless, I shall check out the trial version and see how it fairs.

I don't know. It's not just this coming out on 7th of July though, Major Nelsons press release showed about 4 things coming to XBLA on that day.

XBLA always updates on Wednesday and has since maybe a year after the 360 came out.

Games looks ok, I don't know why they are showing so little gameplay against human opponents and using that stupid third view around the map instead of showing it in first person. It looks like a bad Call of Duty, maybe with more weapon upgrades.

How can people justify the price of the map packs now? It's a joke.

That's a pretty bad way to compare things. Why buy any game add ons when you can just buy Castlevania SOTN, Battlefield 1943, Monkeys Island, etc?

Not really, it exposes the greed of Activision more clearly.
