Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Pack day – win a branded Super Elite!

Tuesday, 30th March 2010 10:32 GMT By Patrick Garratt


To celebrate the release of Modern Warfare 2′s first premium map pack, Microsoft’s passed over a branded Super Elite 360 to give away.

Want it?

The pack includes a MW2-branded 360, two wireless controllers, a 250HDD and a copy of the game. Whichever way you cut it, that’s pretty much awesome. There’s a pic of it below.

Let’s play a game. Draw a picture on the theme of “stimulation”. Stick a link in the comments. Best one wins.

We’ll announce the lucky artist tomorrow. Get to it. Note that you can live anywhere to win this. We don’t care.

Modern Warfare 2′s Stimulus DLC includes five new maps: Bailout, Salvage, Storm, and classic maps Crash and Overgrown. It’s releasing today at around midday BST.

The DLC is exclusive to Xbox Live for at least 30 days, and will be coming to PS3 and PC down the line, but no exact date has yet been given for both platforms.

    Even though I couldn’t draw if my life depended on it… this is still a much better way of doing competitions than the usual “post until the server falls over” method.

    Edit – I really like guarrior’s one. Very colourful. :D

  94. macholara

    you can download it… but it still won’t work, as once you go to “play the game” you get a notice that you need an update which… (ding ding ding) is NOT available yet… so those of us who bought/purchased the map pack

    1) can’t play the new map pack
    2) can’t play ONLINE at ALL, as we “need” the new update

    Not sure if everyone else can’t play online even if they haven’t bought the map pack… but anyways…

    #94 5 years ago
  95. orlandoMW2

    I’ve downloaded the pack…fired up mw2 and gave me an update option…while dling update it fails with a ” can’t download update”…guess you’re right…

  104. macholara

    Some of these look nice… but I still don’t get how most of these are “drawings.” I tend to look at things literally… drawing, in my eyes, means “grab a pencil or a pen, and draw.”

    But we’ll see what the powers that be decide.

  112. orlandoMW2

    Yea I would say the literal definition for drawing would be the pen or pencil kind of deal…I didn’t know whether to submit an actual drawing or a digital photoshop drawing or painting…I went with the photoshop option because of what everyone else seems to be posting…I guess the term “drawing” might somewhat be used loosely in the internet world as creative digital illustrations designed by the user…

    They did say ” drawing “…however, they did not specify what tools to be used…a pen, pencil, brush are tools used for drawings and paintings in the real world…where software suites which include pens, pencils, and brushes can also be used for digital forms of drawings and painting (i.e. photoshop, paint shop pro)…

    Just like you said it is up to them to decide…I am also looking at the terms literally but tools specifications of the ” drawing ” were not defined…

    #112 5 years ago
  113. macholara

    @ orlandoMW2

    True… but, (just opinion here), cropping/pasting/putting together images that are online doesn’t seem like drawing.

    I would argue that the software suites would count… but putting together cropped images over backgrounds is a little bit of a stretch for me.

    In other news… it sucks that in the map pack, you HAVE to play all the game modes… you can’t just do Team Deathmatch on the Stimulus maps… you have to go through all of them..

    I guess I thought my $15 would at least give me better options.

  117. endgame

    “Want it?” well, unless it has short-race keys and a razer mouse then no, not really. not even if u pay me to play on it.

    #117 5 years ago
  118. orlandoMW2

    I dled the update but it won’t let me play a match…guess they are still working on it.

    I draw with lead myself so I can see where you’re coming from.I think it depends the level of work that is done when you are cropping and pasting images together.When you have a simple image that is obvious that it probably took no longer than 2 minutes to do then I would ask questions even myself though the idea for some of them is actually very creative and funny.

    For those who are dealing with more complex images there is an artform to it.At this level I would say cropping and pasting would be just skimming the surface (my opinion) because it involves more complex use of layers, blends, lighting effects and formatting. Overall with complex digital images there is a little more of an effort made to “capture the spirit of…” as EJ puts it than just cropping and pasting.Alot of people who are into digital image editing usually began with pen pencils years prior to be able to express their ideas and visions.

    I think because the tools weren’t specified there should be open game for pencil and lead artist as well as graphic artist…I’m probably talking all of you to death so I’m just gonna leave it at that lol…

  131. macholara

    @ gearskin… that’s exactly what I’ve been thinking. I have seen few “drawings” and a whole bunch of cut&paste…

    Is photoshop art? Yes… of course it is… but if they specify “drawing”, then that’s something else.
