I can't believe it...just totally shocked.

N4G.com : Modern Warfare 2 PC will have no dedicated servers or mods.

Jump to 1 hour 41mins on the podcast to hear Robert Bowling confirm it.

Listen on beyond 1hr 41min....totally in shock...did I mention I am in total shock. After that will come disappointment ...then anger

Video games going big business... thats all it is. Activision and blizzard will be boycotted by me personally and many of my friends and fellow gamers.

This is actually idiotic.

First they kill features PC gamers love.

Then they say "PC game sales are slumping"

No shit.

MF!

I am just waiting for some announcement like:

"In an effort to simplify your gaming experience, not only have we decided to remove dedicated servers, but now Modern Warfare 2 will no longer support the keyboard / mouse combination. We are adopting a Gamepad only approach to the FPS genre. Enjoy your gaming experience and thanks for buying our product. Have a nice day."

I signed it because this looks way too similar to what happened with NHL 10. I would not play MW2, I actually have no clue what it is, but PC gaming is so much better than console in most situations IMHO, it needs to stay.

I also have this feeling that the PC version will be so buggy, it will make the last GTA seem like a perfectly made port.

It's actually quite simple to see what's happening: developers figure that they will kill off PC gaming by destroying everything that makes it unique.
