Update: It’s still unplayable. Nelson’s just said we’re going to get an update in the next 30 minutes.

Update 2: Oh dear. Microsoft’s Dan Maher just tweeted that the title update that’s preventing people from playing the content is “currently being prepped, but could take four hours to appear everywhere once it’s ready.”

Update 3: Nelson and Inside Xbox UK ed Andy Farrant just both tweeted that the update is now ready to download, although the former states it’ll be a couple of minutes before the update goes worldwide.

Original: Mapathy is over: Activision’s released the Stimulus Package, Modern Warfare 2 first PDLC. No one can play it yet, but still.

The download comes in at just under 330Mb and will set you back 1,200 MS points.

The Stimulus DLC includes five new maps: Bailout, Salvage, Storm, and classic maps Crash and Overgrown.

Last time we checked, it wasn’t on the Online Marketplace but it is on the actual console Marketplace. It seems people are having troubles with it so far, though.

Various reports are claiming no one can access the content, thanks to the fact that a promised title update hasn’t yet been released.

Nelson’s just tweeted Microsoft is “pushing it out” right now, so you won’t have long to wait, hopefully.

Get the skinny on the release here.

To also celebrate its launch, Microsoft’s sent us a 250Gb 360 Super Elite MW2 bundle. Get the lowdown on that here.
