Infinity Ward is seeing backlash due to their decision to forgo using dedicated servers for the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Here's why gamers are pissed.
im waiting for the pc leak:D
They don't put some type of virus in it
PC and PS3 owners don't settle for low quality like others. We demand we get what we pay for (and we pay a lot for our games).
Pc games and PS3 games seem to be cheaper than the 360 version... but yeah. I'm not buying this one, on any console. Screw them for screwing us.
Please resist this once and give IW the finger. We are the ones paying them! We are the ones putting food on their tables and a roof above their heads and they should treat us with the respect we deserve!
Prob wait for a used copy for PS3. Dedicated servers don't really affect me much (although it does suck for PC gamers), but I've got way too much to play right now and I haven't even grabbed R&C yet. Dragon Origins looks like must buy for me not to mention AC2...
"Hopefully They don't put some type of virus in it " Hopefully they do. Saaking, who is "we"? You have an xbox...
It's not a question of why PC gamers hate MW2. It's a question of why MW2 hate PC gamers.
Who cares about pc gamers,pc gaming is dead.Just get a ps3 there
PC+PS3 FTW. No failbox needed.
Ignorance is bliss. You're not getting any full experience if you own only a PS3. As Saaking said, PS3 + PC FTW.
...just like you're not getting a full experience with only a PC and PS3...you need the 360 and the Wii in there.
What are you talking about ps3 owners dont settle for low quality like others.. Cod 4 had the same peer to peer matchmaking as the xbox version and it sold better than killzone and [email protected] xbox and ps3 games are the same price.
true ps3 & xbox games are 75usd where i am at. pc games still cost between 35-49usd. console gaming just is expensive. its reason why i get all my mulitplats on the pc. now ps3 exclusives thats what i wont mind paying for at launch even if its 75usd for games like uc2.
The reason why look at all the low quality ports getting bashed because it's not up to par because it's a port. It's getting bash by PS3 owners more then 360 owners bashing the PS3 version.
"Flame shield on" What good is a pc? You gotta get a new pc and graphics cards like once every year. Nobody wants to do that that's why they purchase a ps3,360, or wii for that.
If you are that much of a money waster then yeah, go spend thousands on unnecessary parts for your PC every year. All I did was upgrade my graphics card on my 2 year old PC and I'm pretty sure it will last me for quite a few years considering it already spits on anything that the consoles offers graphically. Games running at 1080p with 60FPS and 16xAA seems like a gigantic leap over consoles. Why must so many console games run in sub HD resolutions, can barely handle 30FPS and screen tear so damn much? People who blurt out ridiculous claims such as "lolol you need to upgrade your pc every year lolol" are morons who have probably never even switched hard drives. People who know absolutely nothing about PC hardware. Build your own PC. It's cheaper and will last you for a long, long time.
if you upgrade your pc every year then you wasting your money I still have Nvidia 8600gt ima just upgrade my CPU thats it for another 2 years
@playstation123 you obviously have no clue about pc gaming. while i agree ps3 has some good exclusives. multiplats are just better on the pc, while gaming on a pc can be much cheaper and superior to a console. the extra price you pay per game on a console more then makes a console much more expensive then a pc. my older rig has a 8800gtx in it, i made it when then ps3 launched @ 600usd... the rig cost me 800usd at that time. even today it will handily outperform the ps3 or the 360 in any multiplat game. while the ps3 or 360 will be playing the game at 600p, my older rig will play at 1080p everything maxed out close to 45-60fps.. not bad for a 2 yr old rig. Plus its more then made up its cost due to games being cheaper on it. lastly the 2yr old rig really does everything from burning my music cds to editing videos, web browsing, work yada yada. not to dish the ps3 its got awesome exclusives but it possibly cant do everything a pc can.
i dont mind disagrees when they have a good reason behind them.. Cany any of you two explain why you disagreed.
bigrud,Pc games and PS3 games seem to be cheaper than the 360 version.. thats what dirthurts actually said he said nothing about the ps3 having same quality as pc owners he was just talking about price.
His first part was for Saaking, second part where he says his name was for the other guy. I kinda thought that would be obvious to follow. Either way he is right at least in the US. Both 360 and PS3 games are 60 and PC games are 50... Also funny to hear someone compare the PC and the PS3 as if both are top of the line. The PS3 is what a poor guy buys instead of a top of the line PC. It just doesnt compare to what a PC can do.
Fvck Activision. I'm voting with my wallet.
misleading title i say they don't hate the game they hate IW poor choice. If they do hate then why bother pirating it?
Valid point. We don't hate the game, in fact we want to love it. Infinity Ward and/or Activision Blizzard made a horrible choice that affects us all, though. I'm not going to pirate it because I don't support piracy. There's better ways to make my opinion heard, I.E. this article. :)
Sorry, I was also misleading on the pirating generalization. I've read certain comments concerning pc gamers who would rather to pirate it instead of buying it,thats why that statement pop-up my head. And yes like you said here's better ways to make my opinion heard
even if it sells a lot, ill still get it used
If you pay for it, you want to play online. If you don't pay for it, you don't care for multiplayer. When the dedicated servers are gone, we don't want to play online. When the dedicated servers are gone, we won't pay to play the game.
what's the point someone will figure out how to make their own servers soon enough. "Also funny to hear someone compare the PC and the PS3 as if both are top of the line. The PS3 is what a poor guy buys instead of a top of the line PC. It just doesnt compare to what a PC can do." lol really though someone stupid enough to say that doesn't know what a pc is.
At ps3ftwin your wrong, PC hardware is still expensive & who give flying f*ck if PC has better graphics. 1. dev don't give a f*ck about PC anyways, they only want money & someone them are very smart since console are aim to make moeny when PC, well PC is like aids, no one want it or want to have it. the real reason why people don't own a gaming PC is because company like Nvidia or Ati keep milking hardware like crazy, let say Geforce 200 has 1.0ghz & 500mhz but then 280 has 1.1ghz & 525mhz & guess what, $600 for something is 6% faster meaning if you get 20fps you going to get around 25fps so $600 you going to get 5fps more LMAO.
i was an exclusive console gamer like 1yr ago.. i bought my ps3 @ launch when it cost 600usd. around thesame time i made a pc which cost me 600usd.. though it didnt have a good gpu. 1 yr back i bought a 9800gtx which cost me about 170usd. so in total my pc cost 770usd. its been a year i buy all my multiplat games on the pc. every game costs me 25usd cheaper then the console version, thats cause console games cost 75usd per game here, pc versions cost 35-49usd. so the price of my gpu was paid up just after afew game purchases. you dont need to constantly keep changing your gpu. my 9800gtx saves me so much money as compared to playing on my ps3. i bought about 15games on my pc last year.. do the math 25usd difference per game.. after 7 games purchased i covered the cost of my gpu.. after that the gpu has saved me about 200usd compared to had i bought the games on the ps3. also the fact that the multiplat games run at 1080p close to 60fps most of the time.
I actually think its cheaper to go with the PC compared to a PS3. Spend $600, you got a PC that will run games 10x better than a PS3 and 360. I mean 10x because, at a price of $600, you'll get really high resolutions, really high anti aliasing options and even options in some games that go and add the maximum quality of graphics to the game with the options to change, so you get more of the game. Plus for single player games that have no multiplayer or games that have suck multiplayer, you could simply just pirate the crap since it aint worth no one's money to buy crap quality.
I agree, also a pc could last you a lot longer than the trey(or any console for that matter). I don't game on a pc but even I know that pc's do offer more. But to be honest I just like using a controller & the portability of a console. Also, I first started to game on a console so I just like consoles haha. Will there ever be a day when a console trumps a computer as far as gaming goes? Who knows but I doubt it.
Nvidia isn't really ripping anyone off because, like say the GTX 280 which was like $600 back in release is now off shelves but, it's mere equivelant is $200 which is the GTX 275. There is no problem, the problem lays in the hands of those who want the card so badly that they spend when it comes out instead of waiting for half a year. Prices for graphics card's drop fast.
