188w ago - Last week we announced news of the upcoming Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package Expansion for PS3, and today Infinity Ward's Creative Strategist Robert Bowling has confirmed that it will arrive tomorrow on PlayStation Network and shared details, as follows:
Tomorrow, May 4th, will be an onslaught of Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer goodness on the PlayStation Network!
First and foremost, the first downloadable content for Modern Warfare 2 – The Stimulus Package – will hit the PSN Store for $14.99 and bring with it five new maps to the multiplayer of MW2.
Included in those five new maps are two classic Call of Duty 4 maps that we all know and love, and three completely new locations that offer a variety of unique locations for your favorite gametypes. The Stimulus Package includes:
• Bailout - An American apartment complex that is amazing for objective gametypes, especially Capture the Flag, but one of those maps that works well regardless of what type of game you're playing it on. Its long sightlines – like sniping from a blown-out wall of a second-story apartment suite – give it some nice spots for long-range...
189w ago - PlayStation Store Senior Manager Grace Chen has blogged a reminder today that beginning next week the US PSN update will be held on Tuesdays, with both a Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package expansion and Fat Princess: A Fistful of Cake for PSP kicking it off.
To quote: As some of you may have heard, the weekly PlayStation Store Update is packing up its belongings and moving... from Thursday to Tuesday.
So, beginning next Tuesday, May 4, I'll be back to share the latest PlayStation Store content updates with everyone.
257w ago - Sega shared today a first look at the special PlayStation 3 hardware bundle it's preparing for the February release of Ryu ga Gotoku 3.
As previously detailed back in December, Sega will release a PS3 hardware bundle pack for Ryu ga Gotoku 3 opposite the game's standalone release on February 26.
Called the "Nobori Ryu Pack" (unofficially translates to "Rising Dragon Pack"), this bundle includes a copy of the game and a specially designed 80 gigabyte PS3 and will be priced at 45,980 yen. Production is limited to 10,000 units.
Both the packaging and system design for the bundle are themed around the game at hand. The packaging resembles the solo version's boxart, with a drawing of main character Kiryu Kazuma looking up to the sky while smoking a cigarette. The system, based off the ceramic white PS3, has dragon tattoo markings on its top.
As previously detailed, the bundle represents a savings of 1,980 yen over purchasing the PS3 and game separately.
Those who pre-order the hardware bundle will qualify for the Kamutai Magazine item that was previously announced as a pre-order bonus for the standard version.
