Dedicated servers ? Didn't they say every console would get them ?
Well that sucks
This sounds like good news for PC, but I'm still not sure I will get the game :-/ I'm surprised they forgot to mention higher graphics settings, Full HD, and AA and such... MW2 on PC blows the console versions out of the water.
Ahahahha the words console and dedicated should never and will rarely ever be associated, keep dreaming though.
@ColdFire "MW2 on PC blows the console versions out of the water" yeah, but it wasn't optimized enough at all, neither WaW, and I guess this one won't be any different, bad porting with their engine sucks donkey balls.
Really, seemed fine for everyone I know. I think most of my friends have above average PC's now however :-)
@nbnt The PC version of MW2 worked on pretty much any PC that could play MW1, the tech was very similar and the graphical improvement not that much.
Not optimized? http://www.guru3d.com/artic... A $200 GPU putting up over 100 fps at DOUBLE the resolution of the consoles version, what are you smoking?
@Conloles Your trolling gets worse and worse. Just terrible. Consoles had dedicated servers back in the friggin' PS2 and Xbox days. Hell, the Tribes: Aerial Assault game is still up to this day. Killzone 2, MAG, Resistance, Metal Gear Online, etc. have dedicated servers. I'd just quit if I were you. You suck balls as a troll. I feel bad for even giving you attention.
Its funny because its true.
Hopefully the PS3 fanboys dont see that second image below the master race.
Or I can just use my PS2/PS3 to play games that don't bore me after two seconds and just use my tricked out PC for multi-media. Actually, my PS3 is also great for media. My PC is good for some things, I guess. Still, I use my consoles for gaming and my PC for everything else, although emulators on PC are a win and a handful of PC titles are great. tl;dr fanboys of any type are idiots.
How much % of gameserver revenue will go to Activision? Is it really that hard to allow users to have their own dedicated servers.
and i hate cod
Wow, they are going to have gungame for COD:BO? I'm really surprised with this.. I remember a couple years back I use to play these big gungame matches as a mod in some Counter Strike:Source servers.. All they need is a zombie escape mode like Counter Strike:Source and I'm sold first day :D Note: Yes, I do know these are mods from the community..
"COD: Black Ops - PC gets even more features" I already had decided it was the PC version for me. You don't have to convince me :)
Available on Steam from day 1 ? Nice.
Kinda meh after reading that they're still using VAC but at least we have Rcon to use...
=/= what it had before MW2
ill get on pc 40+ players domination is pure awesomeness
the console versions seem shitty.. no mods, no dedicated servers, are there gonna even be more then 18 players per match?
sometimes i wish i had started gaming on the PC, i would not get worked up about features.
'Steam Exclusive' is a feature now?
