For those of you who are PC gamers, you should wait on buying Modern Warfare 2 from the retailers. The PC version comes with 2 discs but it seems that only the actually game is working and not the extra content.
I'm glad that mine wasn't effected. I feel sorry for those who have this problem. This reminds me of the Halo 3 limited edition tragedy lol.
This also reminds me of the Halo 3 Limited edition although, this has nothing to do with the case. But very similar problem.
FFS IW get a grip!! Your destroying your reputation with the community who MADE you. I know I'm crying into lonely wind, but Jesus Christ show some respect you fúcking goat fisting donkeys!
Well at least the game is working, you'd be pissed had it been the other way around.
Yeah, if the game wouldn't have been working...probably a protest. Honestly, it wouldn't surprise me.
9v9 online multiplayer, NO dedicated servers, no console, no custom maps, no mods, no ability to kick players, etc. the list goes on... Nope... I'd say the game doesn't work either.
It sounds like a new copy protection scheme to me (EDIT) scratch that. If it was a new copy protection they would have done it with the main disc not the one with the extras
They would've definitely have done that to the first disc if the second disc had that.
The problem could be from a disc defect cause the game is using Steamworks dev app to sync with Steam, therefore there's no reason to use a disk afterward. Though I wonder if retail purchase would still be lock on Steam because the Steam store stated the game to be unlock on the 12th, a few days after retail launch. Hopefully Steam unlock it for those who bought from retailers.
The game works just fine. It is the bonus content disc that isn't working.
Why is there a bonus content disk? I thought the PC version was a no-frills box containing just the game? And how do you know how the game works? It's tied into Steam activation. I smell bull made up to get hits...
I knew a fool like you would come along. We put the game in the drive that is it. We didn't say we played it...learn to actually read the article. Thanks. Also this is about the bonus disc not the game...
What's on the bonus disk, then? I assume they have it written down somewhere. Because this the first time I've heard of a bonus disk in a standard boxed copy of MW2. Usually, Activision isn't that generous.
Yes, I think it's true, the german website bignside.de have the same problem: http://bignside.de/modern-w...
I'm not boycotting it, I'm pirating it :)
Iw does something so stupid
Eh...I wouldn't say that. They didn't mess up on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. So we have to wait and see.
Getting it on Steam, frequently get updates across all developers, also disk based issues will be non existent on Digital download
