The upcoming Gears of War 2 patch that we told you about last week is going to have a nice bonus in it. Well, I should clarify it's a nice bonus if you forked over some MS Points for the available map packs.
The seven new achievements available all require either the Combustible map pack or the Flashback map pack to obtain. The Flashback pack was available at launch for free, but if you didn't snag it then, that'll set you back 400 MS Points; while the Combustible pack will set you back 800 MS Points. Doing some quick math that's $15 for 175 extra achievement points.
