Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling:
The Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package DLC will hit PS3 in North America on May 4th, everywhere else May 5th. PC gets it worldwide on May 4th
we’ll have double XP and playlist updates on PS3 and PC as well. I’ll post details and dates on those when we get closer.
The exact price of the DLC pack as not been confirmed but the Xbox 360 version was criticized for having a high pricing point of $15, despite only adding five new maps to the game. It is expected that the PS3 version will retail for the price.
