Who here is NOT buying MW2?

No dedicated servers, 9v9 player limit, no console commands... All of the benefits of PC gaming are gone! How long will it be till they remove the support for Mouse and Keyboard?

I don't understand why IW would do such a thing... Either way, I'm going to let them know with my wallet. Sadly it seems PC gaming is dying.

I'm not buying it either, on top of what you listed Activision has dictated that the PC versions price be 59.99.


Apparently John Carmack recently said there probably won't be dedicated server support for RAGE either.. pathetic.

I hadn't heard about those things, but it does turn me off... I probably will not get it. Maybe if it drops in price but who knows.
I'm not a fan of console FPS, I don't really like using analog sticks and such.

I know, right! I seriously don't see how they can be remaining calm about it all, considering the number of PC gamers who don't agree with it.

PC gamers actually have the brain capacity to choose a server. We don't need any of this matchmaking tomfoolery.

Also, forgot to mention the removing of mods and custom maps. They're killing a big part of what made COD4 fun!

I was looking forward to playing it and considered pre-ordering, but decided against it after hearing about the lack of dedicated servers. Really unfortunate, but I can't support them after doing something like that.

I too was looking forward to it. I was even planning to line up for a midnight launch.

On the bright side it means that the money can be put towards other releases.

Huh?? 9 vs 9 limit?? I did not hear about this until you brought this up.

The CoD series are now officially consolized...Along with so many others *Cough* Rainbow Six *Cough* Flashpoint *Cough*

And the best part, they want $60 for the PC version.

Did they seriously take away the ability to choose our own servers? I am shocked right now. Looks like I am going to stay with CoD: MW1.

I have to add that IMO, casual gaming is literally downgrading the business as we speak. Looks like I am going to have to find a new hobby here soon...

Yay for slow adsl [RIM] so this actually prevents me from the online experience. Who plays COD for single player anyway. So tata MW2.

I find that the single player experience in the CoD games is often better than the multiplayer. In this case it certainly will be.

I will definitely acquire it somehow for the singleplayer.

I instinctively think this every time I see MW2.
