A Free Map, Thoughts?

Hey everyone, I think I have a fairly decent idea for all HD gamers. If you're a long time Call of Duty fan, you would remember way back when World at War was around that Treyarch gave a free map, Makin Day, for the Xbox360, PS3, and PC. Now, we all know that Sony's PlayStation Network is down, and has been down for quite some time. So, in the back of my head, I was wondering if Treyarch could throw out a free map for us. Even if it is a Night time to Day time map or vise versus, it's still a map that we as Call of Duty fans will enjoy.

Now, I am a PS3 player myself and I'm not going to be greedy and say "Oh, Treyarch I think the PS3 should get a free map because we couldn't play for like a billion years! >:O!" No, I'm not like that. I 100% agree that every console, including the Nintendo Wii, if possible, should get the opportunity for a nice free map.

So what do you guys think? Post it up.

    Why would 3arc even re-do a map just because PSN is down?  I could see giving you a few days of double XP since you are missing it.

    he backed up his argument with evidence for the idea......for W@W treyarch released makin day, which was for no reason, so maybe they could do it, and it would be nice to show they cared instead of releasing overpriced DLC all the time, but i doubt they will waste time/money on a free map when they can charge money for it

    and they might have to do something, its been down so long a few people may lose interest in it, so they need to get those people back. its a good idea, i would like to see it happen even if it is a night map (although makin day sucked, i didnt like makin but it was cool because it was at night, makin day was just a rubbish map with nothing interesting about it)

    No, I'd hate it. What a horrible idea. /sarcasm

    Of course nobody would disagree to this, it's just Activision are far too stingy to allow them to do this.

    Thanks for the back up sir. Also, I think it's a great idea for all consoles and even you Xbox360 players will still be able to enjoy a new map even though your network wasn't affected. If I were you, I'd totally agree with this.

    If this happens, for the love of God do a Nighttime Firing Range.

    I'm pretty sure it's really easy to do this too. All you gotta do is change the lighting, I don't know if they have dynamic lights or anything, but just remove the "sun" and add some streetlights, or maybe moonlight. I know in even the overgrowth alpha you can just drag the sun around wherever you want.

    That's why a night time Havana would be pretty cool. Add some street lights and such then you got a sweet map. Back in World at War, Treyarch pretty much "re-did" Makin. They made it day time also the made the tide low-tide, which made the game play change with broken boats and such on the bottom where the water used to be. So, it can be done.

    But I don't really think any maps in BLOPS would require a complete overhaul for lighting changes. Just remove the sun, add a moon, and then maybe streetlights or something.

    Yeah, that would be the one they would probably remake. Makin was night then they changed it to day time so... Who knows.

    Yeah, because it was very annoying how IW pretty much made us pay for 3 maps and 2 old COD4 ones. Maybe if Treyarch slipped us like 1 or 2 for free from World at War, I'd have no problem.

    I don't see a point Treyarch should give us 1 or 2 free WAW maps. It is all in past and it is time to move on to entirely new maps. Something to inject gamer's excitement to getting spanking brand new maps, not some recycling maps like WAW or MW2.

    I know what you mean man, but do you really think Treyarch is going to make a BRAND NEW map and give it free to the public? I highly doubt it. If anything, they'll turn a map into night or day, or bring a World at War map pack.

    I wondered why you never actually needed night vision in CoD4, I guess a useless button on the D-Pad was okay tho.
