The next step will to charge to use the dedicated servers.
Pay to play. Does not take a rocket scientist to figure that one out.

Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding... We have a Winner

The more I hear about the newer games not having dedicated servers, the more apparent it became that, the next logical step for them was going to be... Charging the PC users just like they do the Console counterparts.

Have they made a demo out of it? I am a single player so, if the porting is half as good as the Porting UBIsoft do... I may be in.

I am jonesing for a good shooter game and OFDR did not make it for me.

Picked up the game yesterday and jumped on MP and had a great experience. I haven't had any problems with graphics like some. I'm running everything maxed out 1920x1200. Steam doesn't seem so bad.

I also agree that the obvious direction will soon be pay to play

Hope to see someone online

I won't be buying the game until they reinstate dedicated servers. Absolutely asinine.

Not to mention... 60 bucks? Are you farking with me? Why is your game that much better that I have to spend 10 more bucks than I would a normal game?

No thanks.

I don't have it, so I cannot say anything experience.

I want to try the Campain mode, I heard that was good. No interest in Mulit-Player, especially not without cheat banning. Of which there is none.

I will stick with CCP, they know how to make a game.

when I heard the news about no MW2 dedicated server support because IW was going to control the MW2 servers with IWNet the first thing that came to my mind is now this opens the door for IW/Activision to charge for PC DLC like maps, new guns, skins, perks, etc.

I am literally crushed as to the greed and D Baggery of Infinity Ward. They ruin a game for 1/3 of its buyers. O well.

They traded everything on that spreadsheet for more money, and a slightly true version that the game will be pirated less. Which also = more money.

Try it first

Er, what is this honest Johns website or something? Use Giganews and have yourself an evaluation. If it works as I'm sure it will then buy it and go online with it too.

To be honest, Steam and its anticheat system is extremely good. The game should not have many hackers etc. I've played about 3 steam games in the last 2-3 years VERY competitively, the latest being L4D, and I actually have had a ZERO percent hacker problem. Not one.

The only reason it costs 60 dollars for pc is because PS3 and Xbox use blueray discs so they need to be 60 dollars instead of 50 to make up the difference in the quality of disc. They decided why should PC get a break? even tho PC does NOT use blueray discs for install. They figured easy "justifiable" 10 bucks.


I too am boycotting MW2 however. The fact that they took away the dedicated servers for no good reason besides the fact that they want CONTENT CONTROL just hurts me. I literally feel backstabbed by the company as they try and milk me for money when I was anticipating this game AND ITS MODS for so long.

But one of the main reasons they decided dedicated servers was out is content control. They want you to have to pay for their DLC, and they want you to get bored of the game ASAP so you buy the next one they produce within the year. It is quite literally that simple.

It's the depressing truth. Also "leaning" was one of the key parts of the game i used on a regular basis, and for them to take it out, was downright wrong.
