Modern Warfare 3 “Looking to Support Dedicated Servers” says Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling

GameFront, "Out at E3, our away team just walked out of a very interesting interview with Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling. In the course of the 12 minute chat (which we’ll be posting video of as soon as possible, so check back for it), the talk inevitably turned to the topic of support for Modern Warfare 3 players on the PC. Here’s how that went."

Abandon IWNet for the love of god. At least in Black Ops I could join games without getting Xbox Live errors.

CoD MW3 "looking to support dedicated servers".

Dear CoD MW3, please look harder.

Dedicated servers for Elite Members.....maybe!

MrGunny942744d ago

IW NET was a huge fail just confirm that IW...

How about Dedicated Servers for consoles?

LilDeja932744d ago (Edited 2744d ago )

It's Activision, we're lucky we don't get charged for getting free updates and patches off them.

As long as it isn't a Black Ops fail for the PS3, i'll be happy.

"Connection Error", Oh ello.

I'd love to see dedicated servers for the console versions. I've grown tired of the numerous host migrations caused by rage quitters during a single match. Gears of War 3 is even getting dedicated servers. There's absolutely no excuse for it. Activision needs to stop being so fucking greedy and give back to its fanbase a little. Despite regurgitating the same shit, we still support their game for some reason. It's the least they could do.

Hicken2744d ago

But that's exactly WHY they don't give back: because people keep buying the same regurgitated stuff. There's no real reason why Black Ops should still cost sixty bucks. Activision's more than made their profit off it, but the price hasn't dropped. And despite this, people STILL go out and buy new copies. It's no wonder they don't let up.

Our assumptions are merely subjective. One thing's for certain, however: Kotick is a stupid son of a bitch.

blumatt2744d ago

They really SHOULD do this. It's beyond ridiculous that they can't shell out a little of the millions of dollars they're making to give the console community dedicated servers. There should also be dedicated servers for the PC as well. Stop being greedy, Activision. Both Resistance 2 and Killzone 3 both have dedicated servers and they don't make nearly the amount of money that CoD games make.

Keep treating your fans like crap, Activision, and you're going to end up losing alot of fans.

jukins2744d ago

with the amount of ppl that play call of duty running servers for that many ppl, more than world of warcraft probably total and daily. it just doesnt fit into activisions plans maybe with the elite monthly fee but i seriously doubt that.

Skizelli2744d ago (Edited 2744d ago )

During peak hours, I see about 500,000+ on Xbox. Last I checked, WoW had over 8 million subscribers. Not only is your math a little off, but there's a big difference between running MMO servers and a FPS server.

Dedicated servers for the consoles will benefit everyone.
