This isn't a problem with the console vs. pc gamer market. As much as I hate to say it, this is a misguided response to piracy.

The Call of Duty Devs know exactly how many stolen / cracked copies are around for COD:MW, http://kotaku.com/344848/piracy-makes-call-of-duty-4-devs-sad. So their thinking (behind closed doors) is if you lock down the servers so people can't pirate / mod / customize servers you make more money.

Reality piracy != sale. All of those people who crack / share cd keys are not going to go ahead a buy a copy of the game. Especially if it is crippled so only pirates can mod / play on outside servers.

So Lather, Rinse, Repeat 6-13.
