    Really? First $60 and now no dedicated servers? This is going to suck. HARD

    EDIT - Can someone add DLC somewhere in the title? Thanks

    So it's actual matchmaking now (I didn't look at the article)? That sucks, because I was planning on getting the PC version as well as 360 version (Since I'm getting 360 version for free from a friend when it's released), but now that I know there won't be any dedicated servers, I might pass on it.

    I'm sorry, but does this mean there aren't going to be any cracked servers available?

    Exactly. I believe that's their main reason to do that.
    Although.. pirates always find a way [​IMG]


    I'm curious if that means the game will have no LAN mode.. since that's what I've played the most in MW.

    Well, I'm not buying it anyway..

    Yeah, but it will probably be with Hamachi or so. Way more work and much more crap then with The All-Seeing Eye method [​IMG]
    Ah well, we'll see.

    That's just pure fail. Watch it not sell, and then they'll blame piracy, not their greed (raising price in uk) and then this stupid move.

    This means... No online play? Or does it mean, no cracked servers?

    If there is online, I will still play... But I am hoping it is the online type of how CoD4 was done (go multi, then Find Server) and if it isn't like that, I am not gonna buy it anymore...

    I will just get MW for PC so I don't need to be a pirate... Sigh... Gay.

    Call of Duty is just becoming one big joke because of Activision.

    Anyone else see Guitar Hero 6 not working with any plastic guitars other than the one that comes with that game?

    I read a while back that Sony and Microsoft were putting pressure on Rock Band and the Guitar Hero developers so that they make their Guitar's interchangeable. I don't think they're allowed to do that... I can't find the article though.
