I think this is only in Europe.

It also kind of sucks that Activision decided to charge $59.99 for the PC version. I guess they realize that this is going to be a hot game so lets jack up the price.

No dedicated servers for PC version. No mods. No clan servers. Fucking fail.

Pre-order cancelled.

Here are the snippets:

We're doing a lot on the backend to make the game accessible for everyone.
There is no delay for the PC version of MW2
There's prestige mode
Jason West at the MP event, said that he was dead on, on the matchmaking servers. We've been building a system on the backend called IW.NET.
You are completely reliant on IW.NET. There are no server lists. There are no dedicated servers.
You have private matches where you can customize the game
You cannot put MW2 on a dedicated server.
This is the first time we've ever done something like this and the team has huge plans for what IW.NET develops into.
Customizing your game...you have quite a few options in a private match
You're getting same game (as in Console), plus matchmaking and private match.
Server admin point-of view, NO DEDICATED SERVERS
I've summarized some of my own thoughts from the cast here:

General

IW partnering through Steam is what you will see in the future. Matchmaking is not through Steam, but IW.NET is run in conjunction with Steam.
GSP's will no longer be renting out servers.
No PunkBuster. VAC will be used as an anti cheat.
Retail distribution: Pre-orders will get a disk. Or you could order from Steam.
DLC may now need to be paid for - not confirmed.
Piracy was only a small reason for going to IW.NET - not the whole reason.
Clans:

No more clan servers. Private matches, replace clan servers.
Listen servers will connect to each other.
IW.NET/Steam will replace the community server admin
Competitive Gaming

Competitive gaming has changed forever.
It might be possible in the future for IW engineers to load a "competitive" setting on IW.NET, but it is far from a guarantee. It might also never happen.
Modding

Modding the game is now very much in question. Fourzerotwo had no info on modding. However, it appears that there will be no mods or maps for MW2.
Modding in SpecOps? Unknown.

Thats fucking terrible, fucking train wreck...failed...

I know a lot of game companies are moving towards consoles, but to completely lose touch of any sense of reality to the PC market is just a tragedy.

I hope IW gets so much shit over this someone gets fired.

I bought COD4:MW and never once played MP, the SP was just too awesome. Therefore I will still be buying the new one and not caring about MP.

That being said, I can see why some people are upset.

Wow. That's pretty fucked. I'll be holding off on MW2 for sure. L4D2 will be all I need for a while anyway.

Yup, that pretty much moved this game to the "wait for the super Steam deal" list. Next thing we'll hear is that you can't shut off auto aim and the FOV is stuck at something console-riffic like 60 degrees.

MP was (imo) the bread and butter of CoD4. The single player was ok at best, and mainly because of it's story/presentation and a few notable missions (Death from above, the sniper mission). However the gameplay of single player sucked imo, it was the same generic formula of CoD with scripted guys coming in waves until you cross the magical "don't spawn anymore enemies" line, it made your actions feel worthless and pointless and gave the gameplay a cheap quality.

Jesus christ, who the fuck came up with these ideas? Did they take all the gamers out of the dev team and just replace them with accountants?

At least I won't really be affected since I'm on the PS3 but that is really out of order to fuck the PC crowd like that. I think I might just concentrate on AC2 instead, this has left a bad taste in my mouth.

It's weird, I don't find MP that fun for whatever reason... I got bored of TF2 months ago and stopped playing all together, its weird.

A good SP game will keep me coming back it seems though, like fallout (I know, different type of game but still). I defiantly should give it a shot but I'm so lazy hah.
