On the MW2 Street Date

Noting that they've seen reports of retailers claiming they have permission to sell Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 before its November 10 release date (like this and this), Activision sends along a concise refutation: "Activision has not given any retailer permission to sell Modern Warfare 2 prior to the Nov. 10 street date. The company fully supports the Nov.10 street date." There's also a Tweet from Robert Bowling repeating this, but also saying: "That said, we won't punish players for it."

I don't pay 59.99 plus tax for retail games. I'm a PC gamer. If you pay 59.99 for games you will see more PC games for 59.99 because they will charge what they can and what they can is based on if you buy. I'm not buying.

No dedicated server support gives Activision a stranglehold control over the multiplayer space. PC Gamers want some control over the multiplayer space. They are breaking the dedicated server tradition PC FPS gamers have had for a decade. If you buy it you are voting with your money that 59.99 is okay and no dedicated servers is okay too.

I'm going to make a bold prediction: They are not prepared for the Xbox360, PS3, and PC multiplayer load that they will experience, you will see problems with people not being able to join servers or laggy connections. Let's see if I'm right.
