We are well aware of the gun attachments that are available in the market for Wii, for the upcoming PlayStation Move motion controller and few more paid or free war games. Now, it is also being discussed about the shooter game Modern Warfare 2.
The company is on the way of offering to gamers a gun controller that is juat a replica of the functionality of the regular DualShock PS3 controller.
Well, it is of course a neat way to play Modern Warfare 2, but without any real aiming and shooting in fact in it beyond the use of the thumbsticks.
Not to forget that plastic guitars can take off for music games so why not the same can happen with plastic automatic weapons.
The attachment will cost $65 and it runs on two AA batteries, making shooting noises.
The first success of Modern Warfare 2, released on November 14 last year, was that it sold astonishing 14 million copies across the world till date. Well, most of us knows this. Here comes one more milestone of this modern military shooter. The “Stimulus Package” map pack has been downloaded 1 million times in its first 24 hours of its availability nine days before. Till now it has been downloaded more than 2.5 million times. Isn’t that too great?
Released by Activision and time-exclusive to the Xbox 360, the map pack is price tagged $15. It adds five multiplayer maps to MW2.
For the PS3 version owners the “Stimulus Package” will be made available April 30 onwards and we hope that on PlayStation Network also it sets a record. What you all say? Surely will agree with me. Put your comments.
Let us talk about lucrative. At $15 a pop, Modern Warfare 2 garnered a sales of $37.5 million and it is estimated that out of it about $26 million went to Activision.

Activision Blizzard said recently that for fixing a Care Package Sprint, Sentry Guns, Model 1887 Tweak and more of Modern Warfare 2 a new patch is being released to console hardware. At present the patch is available for the PC.
It is quite unfortunate for the owners of PlayStation 3. The brand Modern Warfare has become synonymous with the Microsoft’s Xbox 360 for past few years. Now after Modern Warfare 2’s release, this relationship has been cemented.
Developer Activision has worked with the Microsoft in creating a hardware bundle for XBox 360 with its game. They also announced it at the E3 last year that the DLC would his the Xbox 360 first.
Now, at last, the window of exclusivety has been numbered.
Microsoft representative while speaking to the media recently made it clear that the DLC would have a month headstart on the Xbox 360.
He said, “We have a 30-day timed exclusive on the Modern Warfare content packs. So it will be available on other platforms, but you get to try and play on Xbox 360 first.”
Still the DLC has not been dated for any platform till now, even though the earlier CoD titles are representative of the pattern. They will be hitting by the next few months.
