People should be taking a hint. I think IW doesn't really want people to focus so much on the MP, so they keep trying to gimp it so people will pay at least some attention to the single player. Atleast that's my opinion on it.

I also think they should be grateful it has a multiplayer component at all, that it's available for PC in the first place, and shut the hell up accordingly. IW doesn't have to include MP, IW doesn't have to release it for PC. If the PC gaming community can't be civilized about their concerns, I can easily see IW not bothering with PC at all. I know I would if I were in their shoes and saw PC gamers acting like a bunch of whiney 3 year olds over the worse half of the game. But that's just my opinion.

I could have sworn it was. Here I was, inputting commands via keyboard and mouse into Boot to the Head(A PC, if you must know). Hell, I even have it modded to the point it doesn't remember how to shut down without freezing.

I don't remember putting a 360 inside that Rosewill case.......

Can't be civilized? I missed where the PC gaming community isn't civilized in this situation...

Also, it wouldn't bother me if IW dropped out of the PC market. The only thing keeping them in the PC market is Activision anyways - they've said they would rather develop for the console.

Try comparing games that are actually comparable next time. Two completely different genres doesn't work too well in a comparison.

Yes but you don't HAVE to buy the DLC, they aren't forcing you to pay for the extra maps. They have just made it the only way to get extra maps.

When I first heard about the dedi servers I was really pissed but the fact is CoD MP sucks, and I wouldn't probably play it anyway. Likely I'll still be playing Op Flash MP and L4D 2 when that comes out.

Uncancelled my pre-order when I realised I was just getting swept up in the IW hate. I still don't like the removal of Dedi Servers and I have lots of friends who do play CoD MP so I'm upset for them although it does mean I won't loose everyone to CoD MP and be all on my lonsome n Op Flash

Um, or just don't buy the maps/DLC? No one is forcing you too, it's not necessary to play the game. So no, you don't have to buy the maps.

I know the lack of dedicated servers should be an incentive for me to not purchase this game but every trailer I see just makes me marvel at the creative talent of the developers. The recent 'Infamy' trailer was amazing because a fight on 'home' soil is something the war genre is almost devoid of; we're always in France, Korea, Germany, the Middle-East or something. Furthermore, there seems to be a heavy emphasis on the enemy this time, making them seem more sinister (the optional mission at the start is an example of this)...a force to be reckoned with which means you have a sense of danger. This will make winning that much more enjoyable.

Agreed, to be honest, the series seems to want to focus on single player first, and multiplayer second. In the past, the campaigns were too short, unfulfilling, and had people asking for more. I bet we see a lot of positive reviews for the single player.
