MW3′s Black Box and Spec Ops Map Release Dates Revealed for PS3

Black Box PS3 Release Date

The latest MW3 DLC, which includes the Black Box multiplayer map and Black Ice and Negotiator spec ops missions, recently released for Elite subscribers on the Xbox 360.  It also comes out tomorrow for non-Elite subscribers on the 360.

But what about PS3 players?

We’ve finally found an answer to that question.  A caption during the most recent episode of “Roll Call” listed the release date for the content on the PS3 as “on or around April 12th”.

This falls in line with the one month delay we’ve seen with other MW3 DLC between the 360 and PS3.  If that pattern holds then we can expect to see Content Collection #1 available on or around April 19th for non-Elite subscribers on the PS3.

PS3 users are still waiting on the 2nd DLC drop, Overwatch, which will be available on March 29th.  This news would put the next DLC drop just two weeks after that so at least PS3 users won’t have long to wait this time.

    read the article properly he says that none subs get it later on but thats not the point the point is none sub players on xbox are going to get to play it a few weeks before the paying ps3 player its absolutely shocking i dunno how you can unsubscribe your tied in for a year thats why they don’t care they’ve already got our money there just laughing all the way to the bank but you wont get another year out of me thats for sure they cant even sort clan ops out its disgusting how were getting treated

      its actually easy to unsubscribe, because if you didnt know already Elite is on auto renewel on ps3 and xbox360 and unless you turn it off it will take funds every year from your card/account

    I’m a PS3 user and I will never buy the maps.. It all comes down to IW and greed.. Because they see it as “shit, MS is giving us all this money for map packs one month in advance.. Who cares about our PSN users as long as we get paid?” I don’t really care much because the PS3 has better games anyway. MS will not be getting Dust 514.. I love how all of the kids on xbox are pissed about that :DD

    Well now Activison is just feeding us bullshit since the beginning. Telling us Ps3 players that we get the elite drops at the same time, now its 1 month later. AND NOW we get them after Xbox non-elite subscribers. If I could i damn a refund, since they just crossed their fingers and fed us bullshit lies, then change their words. PS3 elite members have not gotten the second content drop, and the Xbox non-elites get their map pack already with everything up to black box. I really hope Activision dies from its own greed.

    what the hell activision, we shouldn’t have to wait two months for three maps when the stupid 360 gets maps every month this is ridiculous, you should stop ripping us off because we are gonna stop paying to get things early when we dont non-elite members for the 360 got the maps before us, how retarded are you, seriously, explain yourself next time when you announce new things, and by the way elite is not worth $54 especially we don’t get what you promised us on time.

    the whole DLC tit sqeezing till its purple seems to be a trend with all the software publishers. check out the shafting you receive getting battlefield 3 dlc. but it has to be said. what activision have done with this 15 million contract to go first, is nothing short of a cunts trick. after mw3 and black ops (kak ops) they couldn’t wait to tell us all about the grounbreaking sales figures and still inspite of all that cash they have made they still want another 15 million off microsoft. and worst still , its up for renewal at the end of this year, which means bend over for some of us. what’s really fucked up is that we (PS3 users) tend to vent our anger towatds the xbox community and its not even there fault. and if it happens to them next yeay we will probably think fuck em, when its some activision bean counter that wants spit roasting by 2 porn stars.

    I can understand why many people are pissed of because of the fact ps are getting the map Packs later and they didn’t realise this but TBH elite is still a faster and cheaper way of getting the maps than normal ps members and it’s not as if there holding back any of the other features. Although personally I think it would be good if next time round te dlc arrived on all platforms at the same time

    I’d actually don’t mind paying for online gaming like they do on Xbox so that we could get other than Sony-exclusive deals like this one with the Modern Warfare games .

    “Collection One Content Drop will be available to Call of Duty Elite Premium XBox Members on March 13th and Elite Premium PSN March 20th” MY ASS! >.> Fucking idiots. Can’t wait until the new CoD Game comes out, cause that’s when the contract is OVER! D: I hope Sony makes a contract for 2 years for XBox users to feel what we felt.

    i think its that they have bitten off more that they can chew which is why there isnt any clan ops at the moment and at the same time they are trying to get new maps and missions at the same time, im not suprised that they are struggling

    I Think IW & Activision acepted the contract with Microsoft (Microsofties!) just because the gay workers at IW & Activision grew up on XBox and why cant they make good maps!

    Well, it’s April 12th and all i’ve been able to download are the 2 Spec Ops Missions. I haven’t seen the new Multiplayer Map anywhere. Does anyone know when the Black Box Map will become available to download for PS3? – Thanks

    Is it true that you have to pay for the map Blackbox if you are premium?
