Modern Warfare 2 'Stimulus' DLC Breaks PSN Records

By Brian Leahy, May 18, 2010 11:00am PDT Much like it broke the day one and week one sales records on the Xbox 360, it appears that the "Stimulus Package" DLC for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has become the fastest selling piece of downloadable content on the PlayStation 3.

Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling dropped the news via Twitter, saying that over one million users "helped the Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package break day 1 & week 1 download records on PSN!"

It is not clear how many users grabbed the content in the first 24 hours or within the first week, but it has sold at least one million digital copies at $15 each.

On the Xbox 360, over one million users grabbed the pack in the first 24 hours with an additional 1.5 million snagging it in the first week. The "Stimulus Package" DLC includes five multiplayer maps, two of which come from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

A second DLC pack, the "Resurgence Pack", is on the way. It include another five maps (two from CoD4) and will be released first on the Xbox 360 for $15. PS3 and PC versions (via Steam) will follow, most likely one month after the June 3 Xbox 360 release date.

  • IWNet is a joke just like this new stimulus where you dont have an option to play the game type you like. That was a big waste of money just like MW2 is turning out to be. Steam is just as bad and I thought I was done with it till MW2 decided to go with it. Im now searching for a replacement game so I can once again get rid of steam and the wonderful easy to hack VAC. If Mw3 or the next call of duty is apart of steam or does not have dedicated servers then they lose my money. Its real sad with such a great franchise to ruin it this way.
