Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Content Season kicks off on PlayStation 3

The first two pieces of downloadable content for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are now available to Elite Premium members on the PlayStation Network, but not everyone is happy about it.

The new multiplayer maps, Liberation and Piazza, are the first of 20 DLC drops scheduled during Call of Duty’s 9-month-long Content Season. However, due to an exclusivity deal with Microsoft, PS3 owners have been left waiting for an entire month to access the content, even if they’ve paid for an Elite Premium membership.

Many CoD fans have voiced their displeasure over the situation on the game’s official community site. Some say the delay isn’t fair, while others say paying for Elite and not getting promised DLC at the same time as Xbox users is a scam. One member called Creeker writes, “I play on PlayStation and I paid just as much for my Elite as anyone on Xbox so I don’t see why they should get their map packs a month before I do.”

Patrickrh7 adds, “What I don’t get is, why the eff did you guys sell this Elite with the promise of not waiting so long for new content! When PS3 users are pretty much now waiting almost four months for two maps that we already know all about!!! This Elite package is a joke!!!

Community site member D3TON1C sums it up with a simple, “this is bull ****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -_- [sic]“

The latest Call of Duty Elite content drop, a multiplayer map called Overwatch, is scheduled to land on the PlayStation Network on March 29.
