273w ago - Heads up that this weekend from Friday the 12th - Sunday the 14th on Xbox Live (PS3 event will be later, closer to the 18th), we'll be having Double XP all weekend long on every playlist.
In addition, we'll be doing some DLC promotion on the Xbox Live Marketplace that will allow you to download the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Variety Map Pack for 50% off, which means you'll be able to snag all four maps for just 400 MS points.
That's not all though, thanks to so many of you who have written in and requested; we've been able to work it out to get the Prestige Gamer pic pack back on the marketplace for download for all those who missed out on it's limited offering during our last LIVE fire weekend.
So you'll be able to grab gamer pics of every prestige rank after downloading the discounted Variety Map Pack.
Some of the IW crew and myself will be jumping on this weekend to prey on all the new Variety Map Pack owners wandering lost in Chinatown, ripe for the picking. Be sure to add the following Xbox Live gamertags so you can join in on some of the games:

Should the team manage to get it done, and certified by both Microsoft and Sony, we could see some of the following playlists next weekend. Be aware, though, that Bowling has stated that the following list is far from final, and there's currently no telling what we'll receive.

I'm currently working on getting everything organized and together for an upcoming Xbox Live / PSN promotion we have coming up the weekend of Sept. 13th - 14th.
Which isn't this weekend, but next weekend. I will have exact details on what it is in the near future but...
