    But you perpetuate the situation and next time IF will just go "No PC version because 300% of players warezd it". Here's the stats to prove it.

    Crytek claim that for every legit player online of Crysis, three more were playing with warezd versions. It also encourages them to lock it down with GFWL.

    This is not a porn convention, it's a GAME.

    "Bowling said that the up-side of IWNet though is that it allows Infinity Ward a lot more control over the community and the way players get updates. Won't help them roll out a demo though."

    So they put in a socialist IW server and restrict the individual freedoms of the users. Do you guys not see a parallel here!?

    Cant really say as i was all that bothered about the game tbh. But i think what they're doing is disgusting really, and whilst kicking up a fuss probably wont achieve anything in this case it may serve as a warning in the future to anyone else who might think the idea is a good one.

    Socialist? What is this, 1965?

    Should we check IF staff for little red books? :p:p:p

    They sure know how to piss on there fans which brought Call Of Duty. Glad i haven't ordered it to be honest I'll just borrow it from a mate when he's done with it. Surely it would be easier to keep dedicated servers but use steam to authenticate??

    I nearly gagged when i read about this news. Insta signed that petition. nothing has made me this upset gaming wise in a very very long time :miffed:.

    What really upset me though was the fact that this system is just so they can put a price on their damn dlc which they are making now for release in January! Utter greed. At least Treyarch tried to release their dlc free for PC players...hell, they even threw in prestige; which cod4 didn't even have.

    Also, does anyone else really hate 420? He's like the new cliffy b. i personally think he's the new tw** on the block.

    As I have said several times, KEEP the people wearing the suits (yes the moron with the MBA) AWAY from any decision regarding PC Games.
    Some moron in IW wanted to make a "new revolutionary, and money making way for people to play online". Moron-boy doesn't realize that this system is none of the above. Maybe he will if IW has the wisdom to fire him for G.W. Bush-level stupidity!

    "no LAN matches"

    That really kills it for me as I play LAN matches alot with the other CoD games. Plus I have my favoured servers, and I often play at the same time as my mates, so how on earth would be able to join the same server if it just dishes it out any way it wants. Absolute rubbish decision.

    Now watch as they blame poor PC sales on pirating...


    I bought and loved COD4 so much that I was definitely going to buy MW2, despite the guest appearance of 50cents. However there's no way I'm going to be paying for this tripe now. I'm going to pirate the s**t out of this game.

    LOL

    Scenario: game A sells extremely well on Xbox and PS3, sells 2 copies on the PC.

    Developer is most likely to
    a) Spend millions making the next game exactly the way the smallest market share want it;
    b) Cut their losses, drop the PC as a platform and roll around in their millions.

    Boycotting/pirating will do nothing to help in this situation, and the lesson other devs WILL learn is that perhaps the PC isn't worth developing for.

    Look what happened with Crytek, 3/4 piracy on Crysis and bang, solid gold PC only awesomeness gets farted round the consoles.

    Well done, you've solved the problem. IW are definitely gonna treat the PC community as a serious consumer group next round...

    They aren't treating us seriously already...

    There probably won't be a next round for us.
