When I first heard about this I thought WTF this has gotta be ahuge prank.  I'm so glad it's not. 
 
In 2011 i'll finally be kicking ass and chewing bubblegum.

Burnout 3: Takedown was an awesome game for playing online and is still the best in the franchise.

I'm in awe, not of the game but of the beard.

Last night while playing Quake 4 on my 360 the screen started to flicker, it did it twice and then the screen went black.  I can hear the console startup but get no display or red ring.
I've just ordered an x-clamp kit of Ebay and hopefully that should fix it otherwise it might be a new 360 for me.  Worst still Saboteur arrived this morning just to rub it in.

@Driadon: 
 
You should still be able to play the ST version with an emulator like STEem or SainT and a ROM.  Automation CD14 or Pompey Pirates CD2 both have a copy of the game on them.  I used the Pompey Pirates version back in the day.

@ooeloo1: 
 
If I remember rightly you get Elite ranking after 6400 kills so depending on how you play the game it could take months.

I've seen the petition link on several forums and on the IW forums as well so I guess someone at IW knows about it. "
IW already responded to it. I can't believe you missed it. They basically bullshitted their reasons for dropping dedi servers in an insulting way and then said the people who signed the petition were just shills. "
I've read the community managers blog post and well it's the answer I expected.  The reasoning given for the change seems a little bit superficial to me.

" Being as it's three weeks before the launch there is no way they are going to reconsider dedicated servers, simply because it's too late.  They might be able to patch it later but I doubt they'll do that without some serious pressure from the fans. "
I'm afraid that you are right... there is not much we can do other then voicing our disagreement by signing that petition. One of the biggest FPS games there are pulling of something like this looks like the start of the end of what PC gaming stands for, I really hope I'm wrong. "
Hopefully lots of people will sign the petition and IW / Activision will listen.
