    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for PC Neutered?!?


    Breaking (and seemingly devastating) news concerning Modern Warfare 2 and the PC version. Via a BASHandSlash podcast (which you can listen to here) comes word that the online experience for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be a drastic change from previous games. Specifically, matchmaking based off of an InfinityWard.net backend will replace dedicated servers. There's supposedly a whole host of other changes, including full Steam integration, VAC support (instead of PunkBuster), and questions concerning server modifications and future DLC.

    I'm listening to the (very long) podcast, and I'll try to update this post with key points and/or minute markers.

    Again, I just saved 60.00. I'm also disappointed that they are saying they are doing the PC community a favor by doing this.

    I'll save this rest for a upcoming editorial piece.

    I barely played sp so the value for me is in multi. Playing with your friends in multi is just too much fun. playing with your self is well you know playing with yourself and playing with random idiots well just sucks.

    I don't think this is going to affect the gameplay to be honest.
    Edited by Teck:
    did you really just ask if Bo has his cwp?

    he shot his name into the application form from 1000 yards... while on a Segway... One handed with his USP in .45ACP... While doing pushups AND eating his sandwich...

    Why are you guys saying it wont effect it? you can't join servers you friends are playing on. There's no server browser. its matchmaking which means they turned into halo.
    look at flash point /fail.

    saving my money.
