    We've waited this long, a little bit more won't kill us.

    I just hope they don't have some awful anti-piracy measures strapped on.

    Seriously, are Activision actually wanting people to pirate this game or are they just stupid? Whatever it is, the only thing they're succeeding in doing is pissing off their customers. A pirate would wait the two weeks then get it for free, not pay £50 for an inferior console version. I would write a letter, but clearly reading is above their intelligence level...

    Thinking about it, it would probably be better if they made PC games being released two weeks after the console version a standard for all games, at least that way there would be less outrage when a publisher decides to rape its customers for all they're worth.

    I already pre-ordered this, and it gives me more time to play Dragon Age, but I'm sick of the PC gaming industry getting the shaft on release dates.

    The hole point of buying modern warfare 2 is the multilayer, that you can only play if you buy a original copy of the game.

    So why worry about piracy then?

    Without PC gaming, there wouldn't be console gaming.

    Get your priorities right.

    Well, it's basically common knowledge that it's easier to develop for the consoles and then come back to tune any games for the PC platform, due to it's inherent flexibility and creating a few more demands on the developers. For the sake of a 2 week delay after all the time any game has already spent in development is hardly worth worrying about and if it gives us PC users a better tuned and more polished end product then at the end of the day we win.

    As for the price hike to try and limit any supposed piracy has on their expected revenue is surely to back fire, or will make people wait it out until the price drops.

    Just think of all those consol-ites out there as PC beta testers for PC players, lol

    I am probably reading way too much into this, but I really do think this is nothing to do with piracy or bugs etc. I think it is just to make people who are both console and PC gamers buy it on the console, I get the feeling that they are trying to move people over to consoles, so they have to support the PC less.

    Development for consoles is easier, and I guess keeping servers up and running for consoles is a lot easier. It makes sense for them to want more people to play it on consoles rather than the PC.
