New Releases: May 3rd – 9th

May, the hint of summer in the air. And as the warm season ushers in shorter evenings, the period’s weekly release lists also grow increasingly light. This week there is literally only one entry of note, and it’s not necessarily anything new per se. New for PS3 fans of course.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – Stimulus Package

Release Date: May 5th
Platform: PS3
Publisher: Activision
Developer: Infinity Ward

Synopsis: Released on the 360 back on March 30th, considering Modern Warfare 2’s prodigious sales and intense media hype, the Stimulus Package is arguably the most lucrative DLC pack to appear to date. Five maps, including two revivals from the first Modern Warfare outing, the new additions are Bailout, Storm and Salvage.

The Stimulus Package has the accolade of holding the current download record on XBL. With the timed exclusivity arrangement and 360 fans’ appreciation of shooters, however, it’s doubtful the PS3 number will match the heady heights of 2.5 million. Nonetheless, it will still sell oodles when it arrives as part of the first PSN Wednesday this week.
