Treyarch community manager, Josh Olin, has announced on the US PS Blog that until November 1, Call of Duty: World at War Map Packs 1, 2, and 3 for PS3 will be half-off through the PlayStation Store.
Sorry to say that this is for the US only.
Also, between now and November 1, you can earn Double-XP playing online.
Along with these announcements was a list of changes to the playlist, which are outlined below:
- Hardcore HQ: The addition of Hardcore Headquarters to the Hardcore playlists has taken effect, by popular demand.
- Team Flags: In the MAP PACK category, the old “Team Objective” playlist has been removed, and replaced with two playlists; Team Flags being one of them (CTF, Domination, and War).
- Team Objectives: Also in the MAP PACK category, the counterpart to Team Flags is this new playlist, Team Objectives (S&D, HQ, and Sabotage).
- Also, all 3 map packs are now in the MAP PACK rotation. So if you want to play only new content, but are tired of the same 3 maps, this will hopefully be a happy medium for you.
Hit the linky.

Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling has told GamerZines that Modern Warfare 2 will “not take a page out of World at War’s book”.
The subject was posed when the online magazine asked if Infinity Ward would be returning the favor to Treyarch after the firm admitted its multiplayer was influenced by the original Modern Warfare.
“We’re not taking any pages out of World at War’s book,” he told the site. “We’re crafting a special and unique experience for Modern Warfare 2 players that I don’t want to spoil too much.
“Definitive numbers like max level cap, complete weapon lists, and number of new perks is something I don’t want to ruin and save for when the player ranks up and sees they’re constantly receiving new rewards for it, whether that’s a new weapon, perk, killstreak unlock, or item for their callsign.”
Game’s out November 10. More through the linky-poo.
