Oh... for sure! This would be the slap in the face right back at them from the PC gaming community.

I officially call on Hardware Canucks to BOYCOTT Modern Warfare 2 for any of it's benchmarking tests.

That way, individual people are free to purchase the game if they wish on either consoles or for the PC, but the PC Gaming Community should not legitimize this game by including it in official benches.

I also encourage others to invite TweakTown, Overclockers.com, etc, to boycott MW2 as well.

SKYMTL, what's the point of putting in MW2 into reviews when the engine itself has not been updated from MW to support newer technologies and details? That right there pretty much says that there's no point to waste $60.

And you're also right on the fact that it will be constant 60 fps throughout, hence a console port.

Borderlands, here I come!

Now waiting for BFBC2... DICE seems like they're not gonna disappoint the PC community. Hoping for a good game.

Hole shit that is awesome. DICE knows what they're doing and are just rubbing it in IW's face with that cheque scan.
And the first game was amazing, and that's hard to say considering it was on a console. Unless they try something really new and retarded, I'm pretty sure this game is locked in for me. Now, lets see if they release in March like they say (and said for BF:BC1), or pull the BF:BC1 move where it got postponed to the end of June.
Nonetheless, it looks amazing and DICE deserves our money if they don't mess it up, just for the fact that they know where their roots are.

I was sitting on the fence but now I know I'm going to skip MW2. I'll probably end up getting Borderlands or something else this week.

I just read they had 28 million copy's sold and they are expecting $500 million in sales the first week.
Thats unreal numbers even if it is across all platforms. Imagine if people weren't pissed off.

that..and take the factors that (at least min requirements) are only a MILD improvement over MW1 (1 gig ram in xp as opposed to 512, 3ghz p4 as opposed to 2.4, x1600 from 9800)..so, unless they've really unlocked a WHOLE lot of graphics capabilites (I doubt it)...I'd say..take MW1 charts and minus a few FPS
