299w ago - Call of Duty 4 is now officially the biggest game on PlayStation 3, according to the latest Chart Track information - and Activision plans to celebrate with a high profile consumer event and new downloadable content.
Alongside a renewed marketing push that will include online promotions with The Sun, SkySports, FHM, Kerrang and the MSN network, Activision will be inviting gamers to a special Boot Camp event where they can play the new downloadable multiplayer maps and compete for prizes.
"Call of Duty is now one of the largest video game franchises worldwide, and this has been achieved by combining a truly groundbreaking game with creative marketing campaigns that reach out to casual gamers as well as to core FPS players," said Activision marketing director David Tyler
"A whole programme of Call of Duty 4 related activities are in place for spring and summer. The Boot Camp event and refreshed marketing campaign are two examples of our ongoing commitment to this astonishing game."
Activision also recently revealed that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare had sold over seven million units worldwide, including over a million in the UK. The new downloadable multiplayer maps will be available on both Xbox 360 and PS3 early next month.

Hey I just found something out. I was cruising gamestop.com for release dates for some big games coming out when I spotted a title called "Call of Duty 4: Game of the Year Edition" On the gamestop site it is posted at 60 bucks and has all the features as COD4 but lists no new features.
I was poking around the internet and one site said that for the 360 version the game of the year edition comes with a token for a free download of the map pack soon to be released. It also said that the map pack was to be released the same day as the Game of the Year Edition hits stores. I think this means that the map pack will be a purchase download instead of being free.
And according to both these sites we can hope to see the map pack hit PSN on 4/23/08.
