News – Microsoft announces exclusive Activision deal for Call of Duty add-ons

At their E3 conference, Microsoft announced that they have secured a deal with Activision. This deal is in regards to the hugely popular Call of Duty series and will involve all new downloadable add-ons appearing on the Xbox 360 before anywhere else for the next three years. The Treyarch developed Call of Duty: Black Ops (released in November) is the first game that Microsoft will benefit from in this deal.

I just wonder how much it cost them to secure such a deal. I’m pretty certain that it wouldn’t have been cheap.
