European PSN Store Update – March 19th 2009 – “Where’s the COD?” edition
With SOCOM finally coming to Europe along with survival thriller “Silent Hill” from the PS1 days (and let’s not forget that, if you’re PSP enabled, Resistance: Retribution also hits today) this update is sure to impress most Europeans.
The DLC is abundant with the FIFA Ultimate Team pack emerging (thankfully free) along with Sackboy getting some Helghan themed duds (obviously not so free).
Sure to keep PS3 Attitude resident Street Fighter fanatic Danny happy, there’s also a SFIV “Shadaloo” pack.
But, alas, something is amiss. Though UK shoppers are presented with the opportunityÂ to download the new Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack, for some bizarre reason, us non-sterling sporting Europeans have been denied the same chance.
Something is afoot. We detect a strongly worded email to SCEE being formed in the background here at PS3 Attitude Towers.

As mentioned in the opening paragraph, we can’t find the COD:W@W Map Pack anywhere outside of the UK store. It’s not unusual for each of the European stores to get a separate list of content each Thursday but the omission of something so popular and sought after as this new COD Map Pack definitely raises an eyebrow. Or two.
In fact, if we had three eyebrows – consider them all raised.
