It looks like price concerns and launch-day snafus haven't had much of an adverse effect on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's Stimulus Package DLC. Just like the boxed game hit new heights for pre-orders, sales, and online activity, Activision announced that the content has "shattered Xbox Live records." In the first 24 hours of availability, the DLC was purchased 1 million times, while the tally after a week on the market came to 2.5 million. For those of you doing the math, that means the DLC has produced $37.5 million in a week.
The previous champion of Xbox Live DLC also wore the Call of Duty banner, as World at War's first map pack had previously laid claim to the week-one record. The number of downloads, according to the World at War blog, was 1 million over the first seven days, a record the Stimulus Package was able to defeat within hours.
