i like the part where the maps cost $0, cause they gave them the "well go to ps3". haha fuck you microsoft
you've got millions from live and want to nickel and dime.

12? And free? I think I just got a little bit hard. CliffyB and Epic rock.

Wonder when the release date will be.

Heh... I sent him an email about when the maps are supposed to come out so I just hope he responds so I can get ready to jump on gears or play Forza 2... It's an iffy situation. I like it that the maps are free though. Thanks for sharing cosmo wink.gif

Hmm, now when I try to visit his blog it says "User is banned. Blog is disabled."

Anyone know whats up?

[edit]I'm getting a bad feeling about this. CliffyB's website has it's own blog and makes no mention of this. Is anyone sure that the IGN blog was official? Could all be one big hoax.

I'm noticing that too. You may very well be right.
I guess we'll have to wait and see WTF is up. dry.gif

Yeah, I read somewhere that they were going to charge 10 bucks for the new maps. I hope thats not true but I wouldnt expect anything less. For a rich guy, Gates sure is a mooch.

Oh well, its still a great game.



They will be released this Thursday. 4 maps, $10.

While I like free stuff as much as the next guy $2.50 a map isn't all that much considering how much use I'll probably get out of it... certainly more then $2.50 a song in Guitar Hero dry.gif

I don't think this would have bothered me as much if I wasn't reminded by many internet posts that we already pay $50 a year just for Live and we get nickled and dimed to death still. I'll wait on until the later months to try these out.

It's not the cost that bothers me. I can totally justify $10 for 4 maps, given how much I tend to play Gears.

My real problem here is that the developer (Epic) isn't free to exercise their own business practices as they see fit. Cliffy wanted the maps free. Epic wanted the games free. M$, the big money meanie, won't LET them release the maps for free which is, IMHO, telling the gamers, "F YOU!".

My understanding is Epic was given a choice--charge gamers for the maps, or you don't get to release them. M$ would rather deprive fans of the game than give it to them for free. Remember, the only reason the 2 maps released earlier were free is because the Discovery Channel payed for them.

Like I said, I couldn't care less about the price. It's the principle that gets me steamed (the older I get, the more things like that get to me).

Yeah, I completely agree. I guess I'll just wait and see how many people get these maps. If it becomes impossible to stay on a server for very long because it's rotating to new maps all the time, I'll buy them. If not I'll just wait.
