Modern Warfare 2 hits 25m players, DLC news this week

As revealed in a tweet by Infinity Ward's own Robert Bowling, Modern Warfare 2 has surpassed the 25 million unique online players mark. That figure includes all three platforms, with Xbox 360 leading the way, followed by PlayStation 3, and then PC.

There's a theory going around that says some people only purchase videogames from established franchises and avoid new intellectual properties at all costs. MW2 just proved it right -- the direct follow-up is "dominating COD4's numbers," according to Bowling.

The last bit of news comes in the form of a tease: we are told to expect information about the first add-on pack (release date, possibly more) during this week. Oh hai, GDC! Forgot you were going on this week.
