Default Modern Warfare 3 WILL HAVE DEDI SERVERS DAY ONE

Twitter
Confirmed!
Good news 'cause this games seems to feel more like like CoD4 than MW2 or Blops (I've logged over 500 hours on CoD4).

Edit: Only perceivable complaints from leaked info is that there seems to be three weapons based off the AR-15 model... And the "Points Streak" system seems a little weird (the rewards are messed).

Too little too late.

I'm surprised anyone is still interested in this franchise.

Funny enough, I said the same thing about COD, since they've been the same game for the last, what 5? releases?

Its not their fault tho, (gotta milk the cash-cow), innovation in games seems to be on a downward trend for a long time. Evolution vs Revolution.

Black Ops also had dedi-servers day one too. As did CoD4 and WaW. The only one that didn't was MW2...

Sorry, I've always loved CoD so I thought I'd share.
Also, on initial announcement, IIRC, they said they'd implement IWNet-type system again, so to me it's good news.

Only good COD games to me are 1, 2, and 4. All the rest are just bland. Red Orchestra 2 and BF3 are gonna be where it is at.

Could someone shed some light on why it is hard to have dedicated servers? I thought these were servers hosted by other people, as in third parties. Why wouldn't a game support them, its not like the developer pays to run them. On the same note, why don't all games have LAN support anymore? Again, it is just allowing the game to be played on computers that are hooked up to each other. How is that a problem? My favorite games are made even more fun when I LAN, due to the proximity of my friends, and the zero lag.
