[cod] Sorry have to vent, Modern Warfare 2 on the PC

That with less then 1 month to release (Nov 10th 2009) there has not 
been any official mention of the PC platform and what to expect.  Other 
then my rushed 3 and a half minute PC talk at the "Xbox360 event" there 
has been nothing out of IW or Activision's mouth regarding our platform 
of choice.

No screen shots, MP related info, Server related info (other then mod 
tools, server tools and Linux bits will come later - again from my 
interview) nothing in regards to what Anti cheat will be supported if at 
all and most concerning there has not been any min or recommended system 
specs released.

402 is on a world tour talking 100% XBOX 360 and has not had the decency 
to sit down with a PC guy to talk our platform. Hell they can't even 
confirm the game is delayed or on time.

So again with less then a month to go, we have no PC related information.
