I'm just curious, everyone seems to be really excited about the multiplayer part of these games. We are talking about the PC version, right?

Every decent PC shooter that I know of seems to go through the same cycle. First, they come out with a good multi-player shooter. Then, after a while, a few cheaters are on line, killing everyone and trying to get ridiculously high scores. Then more cheaters show up. Then it gets to the point where your team doesn't even have a fighting chance unless you have at least a few cheaters on your team. Then it gets to the point where nearly everyone's cheating and the whole game is pointless. And Punkbuster is a joke, it takes them months to come out with a fix, and a day or 2 for the cheaters to crack it.

Is this game really going to be any different?

I've been playing Treyarch's previous CoD game World at War on the PC lately and I absolutely love it. There are cheaters but if I end up in a game with one I just back out and join another game.
There's still plenty of servers running that game and I find it to be a lot of fun to play it still.

So based on my own experience, I am pretty sure I will have a blast playing Black Ops, because even if they just release World at War with modern weapons and new maps, I am sold (which isn't the case based on what I saw from previews and videos of BO so far).

There are cheaters and hackers in just about every online MP games, but with dedicated servers and admins I think most of those little punks will be banned and kicked before they will ruin your MP experience. If no admins around then just back out of the game and find another server I am sure there will be plenty with this game.

As far as sales, the preorder numbers passed MW2 numbers a couple of weeks ago already, so I think this will be a lot more popular on all platforms then MW2 was. I am getting this for the PC of course, and I can't wait to play it.
