This IS a pissing match. It's very much a pissing match of that type. The feature set for MW2 on PC is now that of the consoles, which is NOT the correct option. Why would the PC industry honestly allow consoles to influence them when PC has always been the leading platform of innovation in gaming? It's everything to do with business. I'd be perfectly fine with having to pay for the damn map packs on PC...so long as I don't have to deal with matchmaking and can instead have the option of dedicated servers and modding.
" This isn't about some console vs. pc pissing match. Do we really need to rehash that battle here for the thousandth time? "
I'll be honest: Gearbox has to be jumping for joy at this announcement right now! LOL Their PC community just grew a little more! "
Seeing as i now am going to preorder L4D, i bet valve is really happy too. (A 45 dollar game with good multiplayer and PC support., or a 60 dollar one with nothing but matchmaking, hmmmmmm)
