    According to the minimum requirements the host needs (at least) a 2.0GHz dual-core processor. It's going to be ugly...

    if the host lags (internet, FPS, etc) then the game will lag for everyone.


    And trust me on one thing... 99% of players out there will host with either a shit PC or shit internet, or they'll ragequit as soon as they start losing.
    Nick89, rampage, jmcslob and 2 others say thanks.

    good word bro!

    I think they actually are having host migration for this game so if they ragequit then you'll have to wait like 2343 minutes so someone else with shitty netz or pc will host

    unless by some freak accident all this information is actually about the console version, yes - they're stabbing themselves in the face with sharpened CD's screaming "FANS WILL LOVE US FOR IT!"

    I think it's all a ploy to have an excuse to get out of PC gaming to focus on the consoles. They're gonna site shit sales and increased piracy as the reasons, then use MW2 as they're excuse.

    ... all the while ignoring the fact that it was the Xbox version (not PC) that leaked weeks before release and was torrented to hell.

    Ah, ignorance is bliss, isn't it IW? You screw us over yet it is the console players (whom you love so much) that back stab you every time.

    This might be a bit of OT but dont you guys think we are being seriously banged with FPS nowdays ? I mean I didnt play a fkn good FPS ever since I started playing RS:RavenShield/BF2.
    And I dont mean these penny worth arcade style shooters like COD4 from which you wanna puke after 2 months of gameplay.
    What ever happend to gameplay from Q3,good old UT,OPF or even BF2 which was a shit load of fun for a long long time even tho it was buggy like hell?
    Now EVERY fkn game is a shit port from console. RS:Vegas,OPF:DR,COD,Bioshock.
    I remember Q3 times how I was surprised with the ammout of skill ppl had. I was like "WTF how the hell can they strafe jump aim crouch change weapon and scratch their nuts at the same time".
    I really miss those games where you had to do a bit more than prefire,jump/prone and camp to own a server.

    Quake 3 is my fav game of all time i think.

    I remember having it on Dreamcast and PC.. and on certain servers you could play console vs pc... in which i did both.

    It was hell of alot of fun.

    If they are promoting console gaming then they should come forward with these types of servers (Console v/s PCs).

    And I am sure PC gamers will Kick :nutkick: Console owners cleanly.

    Back in the dreamcast days the console had broad band, kb/mouse support. it was a pretty even playing field. some of the controller users were top players.

    and a simple dedicated server setup on a home pc would host a console vs pc experience.

    I met many cool people in those days.

    there were 3-4 of us that played there religiously and sometimes we were the only ones and it was fun because we were cool with the server admin and we'd hang out all night just waiting for people to join so we could play map 19 and the instagib mod. one shot one kill. was incredibly fun. map 19 best map ever.


    I want a DREAMCAST again!

    thats 67k on 360 that most likely will skip purchase and probbaly 75% of the names on the petition will skip too. and iw will still make a gooche load of loot.

    and what is ms gonna do, ban all those users? and potentially dump future revenue into the recycle bin?

    Oh and did I say that that was posted on the IW forums and promptly DELETED? Even though it broke no rules ;)
    They were just protecting their poor loyal shee...er... fans from the horrible trut...err... lies, yes, that's it.

    How funny would it be if they just didn't release it on PC. Knowing they'd lose more money than gain at this point.

    I am actually playing Q4 again for about the 10th time. Just once in awhile,
    but I really like that game. Great graphics and game play for its generation.

    One of the best multiplayer i ever seen is also my first game Medal of Honor Allied Assault. The same quality level as call of duty series.

    Well. Remember its not that other ports don't pirate its that other ports are controlled better. Your console can get banned from playing games online anymore if your cought. With PC's it's just harder to control, I'd say Pirates/crackers/hackers know there way with work arounds on the PC more than console.
