Despite the fact that PC gamers were delighted to hear the rumors of a Modern Warfare 2 delay on PC were in fact false, information being released over the past week have upset many.
First, a 10 dollar increase from 50 to 60 dollars. And most recently, on the latest Bash and Slash podcast, Infinity Ward’s community manager, Robert Bowling, has notified everyone that there will not be dedicated servers for Modern Warfare 2 on the PC.
What does this mean? Well, matchmaking will be reliant on IWNet server technology.
This will allow for a more controlled environment for those that are looking for more balanced matches. However, many PC gamers have grown fond of the amount of replay value in games with dedicated servers hosted and managed by players.
This is a big game changer for the large community of modders and custom online match players, as doing such will now prove to be a lot more difficult.
What do you all think? Does this make you think twice about picking up the PC version over the console version? Are you one of the 33,000+ people upset about this?
