Comment I'll just wait longer... (Score 5, Insightful) 418

If I really want the movie on dvd I'm gonna buy it anyway. If I was just gonna rent it when it comes out on dvd what makes you think I'll want to buy it instead of waiting 28 extra days? Or at worse one could always pirate it since I'm sure there will be dvd rips on the net. Anyway, this isn't all bad... more streaming stuff :)

Submission + - Uproar as MW2's IW announces No Dedicated Servers

An anonymous reader writes: Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling (aka fourzerotwo), in an interview with BashandSlash.com on October 17th has announced that one of the mainstays of PC multiplayer gaming, dedicated servers, won't be in IW's upcoming sequel to Call of Duty 4. Instead, players will use the unknown "IW Net" for matchmaking purposes. No dedicated servers means no player mods, no player maps, no organized competitive play, no clan servers, etc and strips away from what makes PC gaming unique from console gaming. Many vocal gamers have cancelled their preorders. IW has deleted most of the threads and petitions on IW's forums, however one petition lives on. As of the time of this writing, there are over 76,000 signatures and counting.
