    I wouldn't be so quick to blame this on Activision when not long ago we learned that Activision actually "forced" IW into sticking with the PC because they wanted to leave ship and go console long before COD 4. So this is IW at work.

    Well I'm still yet to play the original modern warfare, so I guess I can just write a 2 on the box and pretend.

    I was looking forward to Bad Company 2 more anyway.

    I thought it was the other way around, and that IW was always a primarily PC oriented developer?

    They started as PC developer but they wanted to branch out to consoles before COD 4 came out but Activision wouldn't let them because in their eyes they were a PC developer, basically.

    What I find to be the most tragic is that on the podcast I listened to where this was confirmed, it very much sounded like IW thought they were doing a good thing introducing their 'wonderful matchmaking system' to the PC community. From my experience of CoD4's console matchmaking, it's error after error after error.

    I was amazed when I signed the petition, only to find my name about 20 signatures down from the latest the second after I'd hit the button. I doubt IW will be able to fob this one off.

    Thinking back ... I think the last time I was so pissed about a game was when UT3 came out and was a POS


    you guys should spread the word on facebook like I did :D

    As long as they earn their millions with the consoles they don't give two bits about anything else, much less the PC :(

    Oh, and I totally forgot about this, which without a question proves that Robert Bowling is nothing more than a lying sack of ****.

    things sure changed a lot in 3 weeks !

    Although with a name like Bowling... maybe we were wrong to ever trust the man !

    That's wishful thinking, the game is almost released, there's no way they've got time to rework the multiplayer networking.

    As far as players hosting the game, connections are getting so fast now that it's not really gonna be a huge issue, CoD4 works just fine for me on my 360, rarely have a game with terrible lag.

    I don't even play FPSes, but I signed simply because I hate the consolification of PC games.

    ok, so i'm a bit dense about this sorta thing because I don't play CoD4 online so a lot of this goes over my head (shock horror i know)

    from what i gather the result effects is:

    the thousands of private servers will disappear
    the chance of playing with the same types of people of my choice will disappear
    the modding community will deplete quickly because CoD6 won't allow it (let's not forget great mods like COUNTER STRIKE are utterly critical)
    clan matches are likely to go down too....

    this is bad right? what GOOD things are there?

    the only FPS i play a lot of online is Battle Field 2, and I play a lot on the Jolt servers because they play the maps i like to play on and with the rule set i like to play on. are you telling me that CoD6 won't have this kind of feature? if so that's bad. that's very very bad.
