    I take it the free download of the Maptacular pack is the ones that were released for sale a couple of months ago?

    I have just donwloaded themn and not had a chance to try them but I thought the ones released were not going to be available to download until November?

    Yeah, it's the five maps released a couple of months ago, so now all 9 new maps are free and available to download. I think everyone has to download them sooner or later, as they'll be added into the playlists soon...

    Go back to it and you will find yourself enjoying it again. I played a bit last night after a 6 week break and it was good.

    Just wondering guys - does your £15 get you anything that wasn't in the £5.99 and now free downloadable content? £9 for manufacture, packaging and a supply chain seems pretty steep... There must something on that disc surely?

    You can use the disc on as many Xboxes as you like, used it on 10 so far - but now they're free online anyway.

    I bought mine for £9.99 from Gamestop when it first came out, so it's seen £60 worth of value from it. On the disc is the auto-update as well so everyone can system link fine with weapon balancing in tact. As well as two videos.

    To be pedantic, wasn't there 2 lots of downloadable content? There were another 2 maps released in June ish weren't there for £3 or something? So it was £9 of content on the £15 disc.

    I think it was always in the open about the maps becoming available free in line in the very near future as well. So anyone who bought the map pack knew that if they waited they would be able to get them free (except for the ones who were not on Live of course).
