Still More on MW2 Servers

A post to Robert Bowling's Blog has further follow-up on the uproar over the absence of a dedicated server for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. He lists several areas they feel will benefit from their new approach: Matchmaking & Smoother Gameplay, Playlists and Private Matches, Party System and Friendslist, and Cheat / Hack Free Games. On that last topic, he seems to believe IWnet will eliminate aim-bots and such: "The biggest benefit of using IWnet by far is the fact that you donít have to worry about joining a server full of aim-bots, wallhacks, or cheaters. Or relying on the server admin of the server to constantly be monitoring, banning, and policing it. Modern Warfare 2 on PC allows us to control the quality of the game much more than ever before as well as utilizing the VAC (Valve-Anti-Cheat) system to keep games clean of hackers and cheaters." Also, there's an interview with Bowling on IGN that discusses the game, but none of the recent controversy.

And remember, in 2007 industry analysts determined that the average profit of a PC sale is double that of a console sale, so a lost PC sale (theoretical as it may be) hurts twice as much.

Depends on who is making the profit, but I believe it.

PC games aren't tied up with the same agreements console games are. Doesn't a large percentage of the retail price of a console game go to Microsoft/Sony/Nintendo depending on which system the game is release for?
