Well, that's that then... I won't be buying CoD MW2 nor any game that doesn't support what the community actually wants. Don't listen to what they tell you we want, a question on a poll can be asked in a way where you get the reply you want 75% of the time.
I suggest none of you buy this game unless they release a dedicated server. The game manufacturers continuously thrist things to market the users don't want because it's easier for them.
Tell them what you want. Don't buy the game, don't support this "PC to Console" crap they keep pushing on us. The PC gaming experience is dying, force them to bring it back....

Well folks now you see why ATVI raised the price of the game by 10 bucks. Did you all really think that ATVI would foot the bill for this all new IWNet play system. LOL

ATVI at its best, lets scam even more money and oh yea lets make the PC players pay for the play system and lets NOT give them dedicated servers ( forced use of IWNet ).

Exactly.  Cancel all preorders and don't buy the game.

They think it will help profitability and we will prove them wrong.
Who wants to buy a game that you can't play?
