Bought The Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package? Get a Week of Free Xbox Live Membership
Written By
View author's profile

Apparently nothing to do with the ham-fisted launch, Microsoft is compensating day-one buyers of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package by automatically updating accounts with a week of free Gold membership.

By now, you should have received a message that reads thus, "To thank you for your loyalty to Xbox LIVE and for buying the Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus package on day 1, we will extend your Gold membership for 7 more days of adrenaline-pumping action with your friends on LIVE. Your account will be updated by May 1."

You should have already downloaded your free Night Vision Goggles to plop on your Avatar's head too, so consider yourselves fully reimbursed for dropping your 1200 MS Points on the first day.

I feel I made a mistake buying it. I am so used to BC2 that MW2 pace makes me dizzy. I use 8 sensitivity so needless to say I was getting pissed off at how much I moved around. I just enjoy BC2 more though...Crash...they ruined you... ='(

You know what would be an even better "thank you" sentiment? 800 ms points! Also, lowering the price for all others to join in on the "fun"! I dont get it. They obviously know the majority of the public is against the map pack on two fronts: the price and the content itself. So instead of admitting their faults and the fault of Activision (who supposedly priced the pack), they say "thanks" and give you a meager week of Xbox live. Im not even considering the avatar night vision goggles anything special.
Take some notes from better and more generous companies, admitting your faults is a GREAT PR move and apologizing for them openly and correctly can net you some serious respect! If you're going to apologize, dont coat it in a disguise of "thanks" and offer up lame prizes. Instead, address t

@23 - I think people are disappointed because they already paid for those maps.

It's like how the lord of the rings came out then the extended came out. Now they're doing the same thing on blu-ray. The moives are out and they're releasing the extended blu-ray later to get people to buy it all for a fourth time. Pretty pathetic when you take advantage of your customers like that.

I can't say infinity ward is any different. You see ubisoft maps redone on later titles but they're ALWAYS free.

I never cared for CoD, but I gave in to the hype of MW2, and regret it. I stopped playing MW2 after 15 hours online. Its just no fun at all. I have 60 hours online in Bad Company 2 and I have no plans of ever going back to Call of Duty. And why $15 for a map pack? Wasn't this game the biggest selling game of all time? Shouldn't the fans get some respect for giving Activision so much money already?

Why do people have to constantly complain? Obviously people who bought the map pack have xbox live already, but it just gives them 7 more days for free. Sure it's not much but Microsoft didn't have to do anything for you, just remember that.

Also, I didn't get the map pack. I'm not going back to MW2 after BFBC2, and an extra week of XBL isn't going to make me change my mind. Maybe 800M$P would...

They can't admit their mistake and lower it to 800 MP just yet! That would create a backlash of people claiming they're headed the way of Bad Company 2. True story. Imagine how pissed off ALL their fans would be if they lowered it a week after releasing it?

At #36, actually the single-player campaign in MW2 isn't very good at all. There's like two good levels and the rest are all filler. It's way too easy, even on Veteran. But you know, there is one thing everyone is forgetting. PERFECT DARK KICKS MW2'S ASS SO HARD, it makes me wonder why I even bought MW2 in the first place.

If it wasn't for the fact that Crash and Overgrown were old maps, I would of bought this right away. But they are old and while fun are not worth the extra $5. Anyways I will probably buy it later. Back to OT: you guys can look at it this way... you can have an extra 7 days or you can have nothing. Plus MS still has to make money out of this. The fact that so many people bought the Stimulus Package prevents them from make the XL any longer than a week.

It's an opinion. Some people are gonna fall all over themselves for these maps and others will pass thinking they're too smart to drop the $15.00 on it. If you like the game the maps are worth it. If you don't then you should by dlc for a game you enjoy. SIMPLE AS.

Bloody fanboys, yes I agree BC2 is better online however MW2 isnt a bad game i enjoy both although I put 90% of the time into BC2. I have complaints for both; BC2 is too slow, both games have bloody noobs and campers and then MW2 isnt well balanced. As for the little kids its because on MW2 you cant do PARTY chat, game types like ground war are fine as you cant hear then. All games on PS3 and Xbox 360 have anoying little kids with no balls.

now that's a dilemma, am i happy waiting till it goes down to 800points for a week
or should i have bought it for 1,200 and got a weeks worth of gold for 400points effectively
let's see for 1 years gold subscription it's pretty much the same price as around 4,200points or 11MS points a day
aka 77points a week
to be fair i'm kind of glad i waited, and seen as the NVG's are free for everyone whether they bough the map pack or not that just sweetened not buying it

PPL get over the price of it, halo 3 charged 800msp for 3 maps and no one moaned, but when its 5 maps for 1200msp ppl moan?
Also the double xp just looks to be staying on the new maps what is good as when u look at it on the playlist it says double xp below whilst on other game modes it doesnt wven though they are double xp this week.
if the double xp stays i will b happy, also my dog is happy with the new maps as salvage has a house for her.

Let's do some math...

1 year of LIVE: $50
Per month cost: $4.17
Per week cost: $1.04

MS just gave everyone that got it on day one $1.04. How sweet of them.

I did 50/12/4.
If you do 50/52 (52 weeks in a year), it's actually $0.96 MS gave everyone. Even sweeter of them.

let me see if this makes since. They put out an online MP map pack for online MP play which requires a gold account already. They realize it was shit quality now they give u a week of gold even tho they are already Gold makes no since.
If Microsoft and Activision really cared they would give everyone who bought the pack ever 400 points back and lower the price to 800 points for any one else after this point.

i swear to your pathetic god that "not buying 3 new maps and 2 old ones" is the dumbest and most moronic logic i have ever heard - if you enjoy the greatness that is MW2 multiplayer (despite all the modders and glitchers best mp available for console gaming) then 1200msp was a steal (and i absolutely hate overgrown). Crash and the 3 new maps are without contention the best dlc maps ever made in any game - and you battlefield scrubs who like laggy game play and campfest bores, you didnt even get a new map pack so get over urselfs - i am so sick of this websites community, it is an achievement website, yet we have every loser and probable modder on here complaining - this used to be a good website too

There are no extra challenges or spec ops. So how does this DLC provide more hours of fun? Simple... It doesn't.

But anyway MW2 is a good game and 1200MSP is not alot. I can afford that and I am a student... I would have paid 1200MSP for crash alone. Those of you who say that it is not worth it for 2 old maps and 3 new are blind. Overgrown and crash were two of the most popular maps on COD4. Any fanboy or simply an avid player would know this. Most of you who complained most likely dislike MW2 so saying that the DLC was crap is kind of stupid. If you dislike the game then why would new maps make you change your mind. Some people need to wake up and stop bitching about the biggest selling game ever. If it was crap then why have 20+ million copies been sold?

Answer: Because it is a kic

Everyone complains about glitches and hacking...
Yes it is annoying but how about you make a game with no exploits? You will see how hard it is. Some of these glitches are ridiculous. Do you really think IW would check for the care package glitch? No they would not... Yes testing does happen but as if they would pick up on an exploit like that.

@25 - Seriously, more maps? There MW1 & WaW map packs had 4 orginal maps and were 800mp. How do you reason adding 1 map (technically it should be 4 maps considering two of those maps were exact copies of maps in the first) equates to raising the price to 1200? Hell, GoW2 last map pack was 1200 mp and it had 7 original maps and a deleated chapter. I just hope that all these idiots who bought the 'Infinity Ward/Activision stimulus' map pack don't make other companies start thinking they can charge $15 for maps.

On topic: I am pretty surprised that Microsoft is giving a week of Live for the DLC was broken for a few hours. Those who bought the game and are still playing it obviously do not have a problem playing a broken multiplayer game already

On topic: I bought those maps, I got no message, probably not a second of xbox live added to my account, and still don't regret it. =) Those maps are awesome, and I really love crash and overgrown. They didn't change squat about them so I don't know why you haters say they were ruined.

PS: Yeah I hate campers, I hate running double shotgun, adn I hate even more anyone who uses Danger Close, but there are lots of matches and you don't need to stay in one with any of those guys.

My friend and I both own MW2 and he got BC2, which i'm currently borrowing.

Guess what?
I LIKE BOTH
MW2 is more short, run & gun crazy fast-paced stuff
BC2 is more strategic, long-lasting warfare

MW2 > BC2 = has splitscreen multiplayer, killstreak rewards

BC2 > MW2 = has vehicles, destructive environment

???MW2 Perks = BC2 Specializations???

Everyone quit bitchin and play whichever you like.
I play one until i get on a bad streak (multiple matches with less than 5 kills and more than 5 deaths) then switch games and usually do well in that one to start...repeat process:
MW2, BC2, MW2, BC2, MW2..etc.

Now quit arguing on here and go whip some ass in the game :D

#60. . . . I would feel really bad for the fucker who bought the 5 maps as a silver member so they can play with themselves instead of just buying XBL before so the fact that the maps could be bought regardless of XBL status is irrelevant.

On a side note. . . unlike everyone else on my friend's list I wanted. . . I dont have $20 to spend to just get used to some new maps. . . lets face it the concept of MW2 as with all shooters is to point and shoot. you dont need to find good vantage points to get the edge on your opponents that will come to everyone in time MW2 is great and I want to get all my "personal" acomplishments done before moving to BC2 both have pros and cons neither game is perfect and neither is completelly broken.

their ass for charging the population of the world this amount this of course is not the problem. . . .the problem is that people are buying it, falling for this trap. Same with Activision's other CoD games MW1's map pack should be free. There was a GotY edition but then they quickly took all the maps out of that package leaving people THINKING they were getting something extra when really they weren't CoD WaW is another fine example. 3 maps and not one is free or reduced in price I dont care WHO you are on this planet Activision are crooks and they know that. There is no defense for their actions.

In regards to the free week of XBL its a waste for your "loyalty" thats bull there have been more loyal members of the Xbox community who have been shit on and that excuse makes me want to sp

My brother bought it the third day and he got the free week.

@anyone who is complaining you have the rights to do whatever you want and here were your options

1 Buy the map packs cause you like the multiplayer
2 Avoid it
3 Go play some other games if you dont like it

you ar complaining for no legit reason. If you don't like call of duty multiplayer go find something else.

If you guys wouldnt pay 1200 ms for 5 maps why would u play 800 for 3?

At least microsoft gave you something. If they didnt give the week no one would be here complaining about how a free week of xbl is just a stupid thing to give.

if you hate microsoft go buy yourself a PS3 download the maps there for the same price, get nothing for free, but just play online with other people for free.

@129 Has it not dawned on some of you peeps that the 7 days gets tacked on to your current subscription? Are you seriously dim enough to think the 7 days are wasted because you already have a subscription? The 7 days are an EXTENSION of your current subscription. You had 5 days left now you have 12, you have 40 days left now you have 47, you had 300 days left now you have 307. It's really NOT THAT HARD to figure out.
7 days is really an insult more than a bonus, at least you get something worthwhile out of that overpriced extension of a game that (let's face it) a child with down syndrome could succeed at. Modern warfare 2...No skill? no taste? No Problem!

If you guys feel sorry for others who bought the game, you are just trying to keep your tears!! We bought it and its worth it, if you do not have the money why are you playing games?? Ok 1200 is a little too much, we all expected it for 800 but 3 Euros (your way 5 Dollars - most probably you do not know anything but dollars!!)

Do you smoke? do you stop by McDonals? buy coke & chips, they are all gone in minutes but the map pack remains, now go cry for the 4 maps you get with BC2 and keep on believing DICE as they give free stuff!!! Idiots!! They are just faking you with adding the maps which had to be on the disc after you bougth the game sealed!! how much did you pay for that 60 Euros (ok 80-90 dolars??) is that not a big difference while you could buy it on ebay?? thought about that?

I don't own this game, but I'd never spend $15 on 5 maps. In theory, I guess it makes sense ($3 per map), but it still sounds like a bad idea. Especially for a game that costs $60 or so, and you need to pay for online to begin with.

Regardless of if I can get a pizza, breadsticks and a drink for just over that and have it gone in 15 minutes, at least food is something you need to survive. Levels in a game, you do not. And even then, yeah, you keep the maps, but you have to pay again to renew Live, so you still need to pay more every once in a while to play them again.

And $3 is not reimbursing at all (especially when the NVG were for EVERYONE; at best, it makes up for 1 map- so you bought 4 for $12), and one week is cool, but I don't think that anyone's like "OH MAN, I FEEL SO MUCH B

Mate you can play the maps offline with friends if you do not want to renew your Live account.

If live account renewal/costs bother you (you are right, shame it costs but) then better get a ps3.

What I want to point out was for 400 points - 3 euros millions of people are whining, it will not go down within a week like some expects, WAW maps went down for a discount after a year, I did not want to wait for a year for only 3 euros.

Its a rip off - yes
how big is the rip off? - 3Euros/5Dollars
can I survive it? - hmmm, yes
are the maps great? - well not, I still like terminal the most but there is at least something new
do I care about 1 week free? - nope, but if they want to add it up I won't say no

**READ**
MW2 DLC = 3 New maps, 2 old maps that has been updated with new graphics, props and to fit the MW2 game engine. Free NVG's, Free 1 week of xboxlive. ALSO, MW2 HAD 3 MAPS TRANSFERED FROM OTHER PLAYLIST TO HC HEADQUARTERS WHICH IS WHAT BATTLEFIELD DID ONLY BUT WITH ONE OTHER, and an update to fix thngs. AND this game is the biggest entrainment launch of he decade so it should be dearer. 1200 msp

BFBC2 DLC = 1 map from rush transferred to conquest and vise-versa. new character skins and camo for 4 guns.Free BUT IT IS 1200msp if you bought pre-owned.

So whos DLC is better value, ill let you decide lol.
Battlefield fan-boys do your research first please

Also all you battlefield fanboys ranting about MW2 campers, battlefield have them too, but i dont see you complaining about them. on mw2 you can easily spot a camper because the maps are not fucking 84 miles long like BF and you can simply get a default class with noobtube or bazooka and fire at him, camper gone, simple as f@ck.

On BF they hide in bushes and kill you no matter were you are and they snipe and camp in groups so you cant kill them, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOO, its all ffine, dandy and perfec in the nancyboy world of battlefield for you gay ass fanboys.

If your notice there are hardly and MW2 fanboys on here because they are too busy actually PLAYING THE FRICKEN GAME unlike ou lot who are board of BF that you decide to come on here and talk bullcrap, and it is indeed bullcrap, yo

and i just got up from bed and came on to X360A like i normally do and voice my opinion, which i can actually back up by the way. MW2 is not broken they fixed all that gay stuff the broke it but now its fixed and if you noticed its not IW fault, PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND ME HACK INTO THE GAME, therefore not a IW fault and you dont see hackers wasting there time on BF, they do it for the best games. MW2 has a better life, with hundreds more ranks than BF, more weapons more perks, or specializations and more maps, oh and more people playing it because its better, it has better sales and ratings, yes i know it has more fags online and gay 10 year old kids than BF but still, it stills outweighs battlef

How can you complain about $15???? Did your moms not give you all your allowances this week or somthing? If you cant afford $15 then you shouldnt even be playing an xbox, hell, you shouldnt be playing video games at all. You should be at work earning a paycheck. All you kids will learn that someday when you grow up to be adults. BC2 sucks btw.

You all seem to be forgetting that Playstation doesn't get this map pack for another month yet ... Microsoft paid Activision for 1 months exclusiveness ... They need to make the money back + profit somehow right? Isn't that what a business is?

Stop all the whining and complaining please yeah? Microsoft have gone out of their way, and payed out of their pockets to bring you something no other console has ... and all you can do it bitch and moan? Even when they give you free stuff to go with it ... more moaning? ... Really?

Grow up

You sir are the idiot. I stated facts and you go and call me an idiot for what reason? Can you not face the facts?

Like alot of people said...
Microsoft owe us nothing, I do not purchase their console to recieve 1 weeks worth of live. I purchase it because I love the console and it is very fun. If you want free handouts turn to pc gaming. All pc DLC is free... Or if you are going to constantly complain then stop gaming...

The main point here is that they gave you a freebie be happy...

It´s not about "omg $15 is so muuuch money"!
It´s about what you get for your $15! And 3 new and 2 old maps is not enough.

Would you pay $10 for 2 maps?? C´mon, $10 is nothing, everyone can spend $10, thats not the probleme, but not for 2 maps... got it??

Microsoft giving away a week is not reimbursing you for buying the map. You can't expect to get the maps like for "free". Yeah $3 a map may seem like a lot but people can do a lot worse with that $15. If you like the game and want the new maps get it and keep playing. If you think call of duty sucks go play something else. If you didn't buy the maps on the first day and you think one week is a stupid thing to give go get a PS3 then.

I agree seriously this BF vs MW argument is getting old. Some people need to grow up. BF is better there's no argument there but there's no need to go on and on.

1 week of free xbox live gold, I could have done so much in that time frame!!! I'm so jealous!!!

First off all, most of you need to realize that almost all DLC is a rip off because developers decide to NOT put this content in the game to charge people later. DLC that comes out only a couple of weeks later after launch doesn't that seem suspicious? Resident evil 5 for example. They had multiplayer all along in the disc but charged you 400msp to unlock it. This is just one of MANY examples.


You all need to realize something. If you want DLC to be cheaper demand it and NOT buy it when you think it to expensive.

Some of you here need to grow up. Your legitimately angry because you think your favorite game is better than someone elses. You use childish responses like "your a fanboy or do your research or your stupid" You people are the reasoning why i NEVER wear a microphone when i play video games. Comment #160 is a perfect example of this.

You get upset when you don't win and use the internet as an excuse to say things that you would never in a million years say to anyone in person. Maybe Im just getting to old to understand online gaming. But Im sure i still fit right in with the rest of you by just yelling the word faggot or nigger at people when i play online.

#171 . . . . whether you realize it or not. . . . your feeding the fucking flames. . . .

like I stated each game has its pros and cons it all matters what YOU like the individual not what the populus thinks. So just move on people this conversation is getting old. 1200 MSP is a whole lot of cash (though. . . I shouldn't be complaining I shelled out over half a grand for the game alone lol) I just have my sights focused on other things at the moment like I said. . .if you have a personal goal in the multiplayer why would you want to do that and try to enjoy new maps at the same time? Just wont happens gents and ladies. The price will go down in time just give it a month you'll see a price drop alebiet a small one.

Can everyone just simply shut the **** up about BC2 and MW2? If your respective game is so good why do you keep taking breaks from playing it to come here and try to convince us so?

And as for the free week of Live? Well, let's put it into a metaphor. That week of Live would be the lube they use while they're assfucking you for 1200 points, but shitty for you, it's the cheap lube that only costs a buck.

@105 and 111 - Where are you getting your information on Bad Company 2? At this point, I've put in about the same amount of time with each game's multiplayer and I've only ever had two matches in BC2 where lag was at all a factor and even then, it didn't last the whole match. MW2, on the other hand, was worse than a bag of rubber bands and that more times than I can count. You can have your opinion about whether one is more boring than the other, but you're just plain wrong if you think that Bad Company's multiplayer is a lagfest. The free "new" maps for BC2 were based on maps that we already had, but the different game mode on each one drastically changed the way the maps played. Not having given it a try, I can understand how you wouldn't have picked up on that.

Shit, since everyone else feels compelled to comment, I will too. First, to the jerk offs who claim BC2 is a "campfest", all I can do is LOL. Really, it's meant for that. You've got a team of 12; some need to camp to defend objectives. There is no real reason to camp in TDM aside from being a nub. When MW2 came out, I was ecstatic! It was so fucking fun...until glitches and hacks became so prevalent, that I felt robbed for having spent money on a busted ass game that I felt was made quickly just so they could cash their billions of dollars. I don't care how anybody feels on the subject, a consumer should never feel this way about a game - never. BC2, for the most part, is excellent. Dedicated servers allow for smooth gaming, teamwork is emphasized. My only real gripes with BC2 are the leve

My only real gripes with BC2 are the leveling system and the "epic" kill cam. MW2 used to be amazing, but time has ruined it thanks to hackers, glitches, assholes who think they're the shit and fucking suck nut sacks, and poor map design. BC2 FTW.

@166

you pay $60 for a game, at least $200 for the console, at least $8 for your month of live, at least $25/month for your internet connection, i dunno say at least $400 for an hdtv (give or take but i think 400 is generous), hmm about $20 for a decent hdmi cable no? and im betting that your on a computer reading this now that also cost a chunk of change, yet $3 for a map that is exclusive to your console is not worth it? are you telling me that you dont get ripped off every time you buy somthing at suggested retail price? HUH? i must be missing somthing....nothing in this world is free and m$ did you a favor, the opposite of robbing you.

and btw, the only reason MW2 has more glitches and problems then BC2 is because there are more people playing it to discover those glitches and problems. If BC2 had a fraction of MW2's fanbase then im sure there would be just as many people complaining, if not more. silly people.
