Hey all,

There are 68 votes to date and I think SKYMTL expects 75 to take the results seriously in his decision process, so get some more votes in (either 'Yes' or 'No') it's all cool.

On another related note, I think this image sums up the litany of anti-PC aspects of MW2 as well as the newly discovered "Unreadable Istall Disks" issue.

Cheers!

Hmmm...

Pretty close to being a legit "Decisional Aide" for SKYMTL. We're just short 3 votes to make it a "relevant" poll. Let's go! Vote away *Yea* or *Nay*, it makes no matter! All voices are welcome and requested!

Cheers!

Should have made it 100. ;)

Getting other forums involved with this one may be something to do.

I say several review/forums sites should get involved and effectively boycott this title. Infinity Ward can no longer call themselves pc game developers, because this is NOT a pc game.

+1 to that. Don't give them a damn penny.

This isn't my genre of game but I still voted no based solely on the feeling that the PC version of this title was released as an afterthought just to squeeze a few more dollars out of the title, and as such it doesn't deserve special mention on a website dedicated to PC hardware.

That said... it does open up a slippery slope of the review process being biased by editorial decisions which is never a good thing. If this title were ground breaking WRT current (and/or older) hardware performance then I would have bit my tongue and voted to include it. In this case, it doesn't sound like using this particular title for benchmarking is going to provide more/better information than a different (more PC friendly) title, so nothing would be lost by not including it.

Well, we've hit 75 vote now!

But by all means, continue adding your voices to the Poll so that Hardware Canucks *who ultimately are free to make whatever decision they want mind you... it's not like this is legally binding or anything* can make the most informed decision possible with the help of our lovely Canadian PC Community.

Cheers!
