    those videos didnt look anything more than what an experienced player could accomplish, aside from the player markers. I have seen professionals shoot better than that. Also, there are no wall hacks, you can shoot through walls of a certain thickness, and there are unlocks that you can use to shoot through even thicker walls.

    MW2 on PC makes up just 3% of sales

    After reading a cupple of articals on sites i see the console versions of MW2 are out selling the PC version by a ratio of 97:1

    Dispite this the PC version of Modern Warfare 2 has outsold the PC version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in its first week !

    IW official says:

    Not a fan of these games anymore, too much violent war torn game style, I prefer battlefield bad company series, it actually has humor to the game, and explosive environments and just plain fun!

    I got it for the PS3 and finished the game in like just over 5 hours, damn short game :shadedshu:eek::roll:, not interested in the multiplayer cant be bothered plus, the game looks blurry as, looks like infinity ward went with the 600p path again and lied about it on the back of the game case, douche bags!!!:banghead::mad::banghead:

    Oh yeah, Im selling it on ebay already, not my type of game!

    TBH it shows that pc gamers dont take bull crap and that most of us did actually follow through and not buy it so i think a few people can eat humble pie and take back the boycott failed. While it wasnt as successful as it could have been obviously.

    Console owners are daft edjits who tend to just buy popular games franchises brands that sort of stuff. Doesnt make it a good game just coz it sold millions.

    Look at Titanic i dont care how many oscars it won it was still boring as fuck, the whole way it made money was to pull in the same people over and over again to the cinema.

    I got this game for the PS3 and its tons of fun and I prefer playing it on my HD TV at 1080p then on my 17 inch monitor despite having it on 4xAA. Left for Dead 2 on the other hand is game that should be played on PC since it has VAC and gets constant updates for free you would be a fool to pay for those on console.

    MW 2 on the PS3 is hack free vs its PC counterpart and its just fun with a controller and this comes from a guy that plays nothing but PC games. Its just some games are better off on console, especially if they were designed for console to begin with.

    IF the exact same game is shit on pc how can people act like its much better on consoles?
    Same game its not like FIFA 10 on pc vs FIFA 10 on consoles where the graphics engine is older on pc, MW2 is the exact same game on every system so how can it be said to be so much better?

    You can hack in the ps3 by hacking the controller for macros, but that's arguably not an unfair advantage :rolleyes:

    I can't believe you said some games are better off on the console... I mean controllers for consoles use USB as well. The consoles are just oddly dressed PCs that break a helluvalot more.

    on a console tho mw2 was a step in the right direction for mp compared to the older ones but at the sametime it was a massive step backwards for pc mp gaming.

    How about its Hack free on consoles? Split Screen with friends.

    And another big one for me is that I can play it on my 65 inch although that could be done on my PC I don't feel like carrying the 40 Pound Beast Down Stairs.

    It says 1080p on the box and when I hit format on my TV it says 1080p standard. I did notice how I had to scale the game to fit my TV, I thought that was nice. It does that so you can make use of all the space. I don't like Split Screen though.

    Shocking - they take away the PC support and then blame it on the market being too small.

    Wow... who saw that one coming.

    A$$hats.

    Personly i feel its less to do with the dedi server scandle & more to do with the fact theres just not that many people gaming on pc's. As far as pc game sales go MW2 is selling quite well. After all the 1st week sales have out sold cod:mw 1st week sales.

    And whos the daft ideits really? Console owners for buying games like MW2 or pc gamers who shell out daft amounts of money to build a gaming pc & then use them play console ports !

    Also console owners can play their copy of MW2 for a bit, get bored of it & trade it in on another game. Try doing that with the pc version.

    I'm no console fanboy it just p*ss*s me off how pc gamers have pay so much more for so little extra !

    Loads of people still play games on the PC. This has everything to do with them taking away a VAST amount of PC support to make a quick buck on the backs of console gamers. The fact that they are too lazy to even put the effort in to make the PC game better, which it would be if they tried, is just a trend in developers currently and most probably into the foreseeable future. Mailman constantly states this bit until he is blue in the face and no one listens

    PC market is "shrinking" because developers are being too lazy to make the games for them.

    Let's face it. This has nothing to do with lazy devs.
    The console market is huge compared to the PC market. Anyone with good business sense is going to cater to the market that brings them in the most revenue.

    You can fuss all you want, and trash the people who like console games, but the truth is that in order to stay a viable company you have to follow the money.

    Also, MailMan's comment is no more odd than usual. :D

    How many people here were looking forward to playing the game and then finding out that paying £/$60 to play for 6 hours and a poor ass excuse for a multiplayer was just not worth it?!

    Hell even Mailman was looking forward to it.

    The devs are lazy, make the game proper for the PC gamers and that "world-record" selling figure would have been MUCH higher.
