Saw this on the COD site. Looks like we only get 4 MP maps and 1 Zombie map for $15. Not sure if I will be buying these or not, guess it will depend on if they get all the issues fixed first! Didn't we get 6 maps with MW2?
Here's the link:

We got 5 maps in MW2, three new and two from MW1 in each pack. I will not be buying this until they fix the PS3 version.

Yep same here. Looks like based on what they are saying, maps will be out on the PS3 sometime in March. If the online isn't fixed by then, then it will be a mute point for me as I will in all likelihood moved on to Killzone 3. ;)

Homefront comes out in March, too. I will keep play Black Ops, but I will not be spending any more money on it until everything is fixed.

Agreed in that I'm not giving Treyarch a dime until other people are the Guinea Pigs for the new map packs. I'm really looking forward to KZ3/Homefront/Resistance 3. The videos I've seen of the campaign play in KZ3 put all CoD games to shame. Amazing graphics. I'm also happy that Resistance 3 will have multiplayer game play that's based on progression and unlocks like CoD.

The PS3 version seemed better to me this weekend....I'll probably buy it.

I still think this price point is too high. Look at the BC2 Vietnam expansion in comparison for the same price. Same number of maps. However, BC2 maps are epic in comparion. Also, BC2V comes will all new weapons, vehicles, challenges, a new look, etc. BC2V is well worth $15. BO map pack is not worth $15. If I could play the game without the freezing, diconnects and other issues I would think about it.

I suppose...as long as you don't have to pay for BFBC2 twice.... ;)

Killzone 3 comes out in February. It will likely be better than both BO and Homefront.

The Wii and PC will definately be getting the new maps, too. Some of the pics in the link are real, but others I'm not oo sure about. I can't get too excited about these yet.

Well, if I were to bet on which will have the best multiplayer experience for a PS3 owner at the end of the day, my money would be on KZ3 ;)

As long as M$ bribes developers with their bottomless pockets this will continue to happen. Guess it is one of the perks for having to pay to play online. I can wait for a map pack if that means I continue to get to play online for free. Besides, this way we can also hear if the packs are worth the money from the 360 peeps first.

I haven't had any disconnect issues in about 2 weeks for CODBO for the PS3. It seems to have worked itself out. Am I the exception? I also switched from a wireless to a wired connection as well.

I think you mean "moot" point but I understood.
Hopefully all the kinks will be worked out by the time PS3 gets it.

Someone know when this Map pack will be availbale on PS3? I did not play COD since hollidays (God of Wars trilogy kept me busy and I was a little bit tired with all those disconnecting issue we experienced on PS3). But those new maps could bring me back!

I'm still not sure I'm going to be buying the new maps. I can hardley play the maps they have in the game now!! This has to be the most inconsistant game I have ever played. One minute I'm kicking butt, taking out three guys in a row, then next round, I'm dead before I can even lift my gun up. I'm not sure I'm ready to throw more money into a broken game...havn't decided yet.

Received an e-mail from them informing me about the release of the map pack on the 360. I sent the below reply, I don't expect anything to come of it but, what the hell why not try.

To Activision,

A) I have a PS3 not an X-box. Paying extra for online multiplayer, no thank you.

B) The Online multiplayer portion of your game on the PS3 does not function properly.
There is no way I would consider paying more money for this game or any add-on features until it is fixed.

C) It would be a nice gesture if you were to offer something in compensation to your PS3 users.
Perhaps releasing the new map pack for free or at a discounted price. Maybe a free PS3 exclusive map or something to make up for all of our trouble.

Thank you and have a great day,
Kyle

- Hit detection
- horrible lag
- poor frame rate on the PS3
- connection problems
- flat maps
- unbalanced weapons
- crappy spawning system
- game freezing
- leaderboards and stats incorrect
- many glitches like being killed by someone shooting your dead body as soon as you spawn back in

I am sure there are more.

- gun jamming in zombie mode when lots of zombies on the screen

Not to mention being turned on by a 12 year old when clearly he should've been killed by the 6 or 7 shots you put into him on your screen and you end up dead.

I was/am.....sort of still on the fence.

The KZ3 rental went back Sunday, so Blops is my current #1 game and BC2 is #2. Not too many people are playing either game, although we did have a party of 5 playing Blops last night. While I do want the MP maps, I really want the Zombie map.

I will probably buy it and just "share" the download with a friend for a couple of beers.

$16.04 after tax. I got it, it's pretty good and the new patch seems like a winner too! Only thing I dont like is I had to buy 25 bucks in store credit.

Did you buy a PSN card from a store?

I think mine came out to $15.96 with tax, but I was able to only have that exact amount charged on my credit card.

Obviously I got it.....and proceeded to get my butt kicked last night. :(

No I used a credit card. Last year when I bought the MW2 map packs I was able to just charge the exact amount. I got my ass kicked last night too! Things seem a little different since the inclusion of Mercenary Mosh Pit, which I think was a bad idea. I thought it seemed clear that the community wanted Merc Domination not mosh pit. Plus I think the Xbox guys with ps3's were waitin for us like we were Christmas noobs!

I guess I'll have to get the map pack. I haven't played in a week and got my ass handed to me for about 6 straight matches. These were on the old maps, it seemed something in the game play changed with the patch or else I just got really rusty in 5 days. I was able to Prestige to level 4 and in one match of search and destroy (what ever mode is where you alternatively defend and plant 2 bomb sites) moved from level 1 to 8!

I took 5 days off when Killzone came out and I played Killzone exclusively. Ever since then I've been struggling....even with a hardwired connection. :(

I'm getting it back slowly, but something needs to give. X(
