MS has Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood DLC issues
Three days since the new Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood DLC release and still no answers to why people are paying for something they can’t download.
Thursday was a big day for Xbox Live. Map Pack 3 hit for Call of Duty: World at War. But that was not the only “Call of” game that received DLC. Fans of the Western first-person shooter “Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood” game were treated (or so they thought) to a new Map Pack that cost 800 Microsoft Points ($10). That Map Pack contains 4 new multiplayer maps. The problem is we never got to see those maps yet.
This whole mess started on Thursday morning when the map pack was released for “0″ Microsoft Points. Microsoft later fixed this and slapped a “800 point” price on the download. But that was just the start of what has really pissed many gamers off.
If you buy the DLC now you will go to the download screen after purchase. The download will stop at 1%, resulting in a error code (Status Code: 90070570). This problem started on Thursday, today is Saturday… still nothing is resolved. How do I know this? I am one of the many that bought this map pack for $10 and still not able to download it.
Who is to blame? Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood developer Techland and publisher UBISoft claims it is the fault of Microsoft. Gamers have tried to contact Microsoft and the results are not very good. The Xbox and Call of Juarez fan forums are lighting up with anger over how this situation is being treated. Gamers are paying $10 and receiving nothing in return.
