World at War Map Pack 3 Surpasses ... One Million Downloads

And that's in its first weekend of availability. Activision announced yesterday that Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 3 registered more than a million paid downloads through Xbox Live and PSN from Aug. 6 to Aug. 9.

The seven-figure weekend brings to 6.5 million the worldwide downloads of World at War map packs, Activision said in a news release. At $10 a pop, roughly, that's some nice jing in their pockets.

The statement didn't break out the number of free downloads of PC versions of Map Packs 1 and 2, or specify whether they're included in that 6.5 mil total.

Map Pack 3, in a story last week in which I royally screwed up community manager Josh Olin's first name, has been confirmed for the PC, along with a version 1.6 patch. No word yet on when that arrives.
