Thumbs down Really Activision?

Got the internet hooked up today expecting to download the new map pack for CODMW2. Launched the game expecting STEAM to have downloaded it...nope...main screen had a "Stimulus Download" button, clicked it....$15???? Don't see why the just don't put it on a disk and ship it to stores for that price. Sounds like a joke to me.

Any one agree with me?

A little late to the rant party on this one. The Stimulus Map Pack came out a while ago and yes...for $15 it's definitely not worth it even though some of the maps do look pretty good. The only wallets that pack is stimulating is Activision and Infinity Ward.

A lot of them are Call of duty 4 maps so you know they put little effort into it for major profit

The maps are amazing. They are totally worth the $15!
I actually have a video of me doing some TDM on the new map "salvage"

No maps are worth $15.

Especially since 2 of the 5 maps are from the first MW.

New maps are always worth money to the console players. I think Activision just decided to dip that idea into the PC market...

This. I shouldn't have to pay for add-ons to an already overpriced game.
