After statements during online chats hosted by Infinity Ward and Activision's public statements, members of the hardcore gaming community are feeling slighted by a dearth of features in Modern Warfare 2.
PC gamers have been most shocked by the relelations to come out of Infinity Ward. During an online chat session, the following new news about the game was discovered:
Of course, people understand by now that PC players will not have dedicated servers. In addition, however, Modern Warfare 2 will not have the ability to vote-kick players from a match. When pressed about the issue, Infinity Ward has stated that they'll be taking action against hackers that make their way past VAC (the anti-cheating system). Infinity Ward has confirmed that gamers cannot opt-out of hosting matches, a concern for those players that are on ISPs that don't allow dedicated servers. With all of these limits, it's hard to imagine more, but... Modern Warfare 2 is also limited to 9 vs 9 matches, only 18 total players on a map.
One last kick to the PC gamers is the lack of a Console Mode (a mode where PC gamers are able to enter commands directly into the game). When asked if Modern Warfare 2 was simply a console port, Infinity Ward said "No, PC has custom stuff like mouse control, text chat in game, and graphics settings."
Apparently, they have absolutely no idea what was meant by the question. And the real answer is "Yes, why the hell would we develop 2 games, when we can just make one and get the same amount of money?"
But the suprises aren't limited to PC gamers. Xbox 360 gamers are being locked out of features as well.
