    "So how does it work when we have a CEVO match worth $3,500 and we have players from Oregon, Florida, and New Hampshire in the server and no players that live in a central location? Not only would the host get close to zero ping but the players that live 1,000+ miles away would get 150+ ping which is unplayable in a league match where money is on the line. You said that it will connect you with people in your area to achieve smooth gameplay and while that's all good and fine it simply does not work for scrims or matches."

    As to the PC gaming haters, the PC also does about a thousand more things then a console. It is a different system. It does cost more, but you get better graphics and upgrades as you go. I love my PS3 just as well, it just isn't the same. Oh, and a keyboard and mouse player will beat a controller player every time. That last bit is just my opinion, but I'll openly put it to the test any time.

    The PC community is getting screwed on this deal though. The so called gaming news is glossing over a petition a few hundred short of 170,000 against it, the anger from the PC community on the lack of dedicated servers, no mods. The mass cancellation of PC pre-orders, and to put it best, the re-interpretation, of the truth from the Infintiyware PR guys when talking to the PC community regarding the game come up?

    PC gaming isn't dead yet, we are strong and thriving. In what other community can you get 300+ geeks to all haul $1000+ systems across the pacific northwest to play games for three days four times a year. Where else can you get a single community to support not only a software market like the console players, but a hardware market that is basically the proving ground for the console market hardware. Yes, we are your test pilots.

    pc gaming is a waste of money, to play cod:mw2 at the same quality of a 360 you would have to spend 4X as much money, not everyone can spend 1500 dollars and build there own pc, pc gaming is going to die within the next 10 years (exept for mmo's such as wow)

    wow i love how in every interview with the infinity guys none of them ever bring up the PC multiplayer only the 360 version. guess their too afraid to mention it cause things would go nuts since not everyone knows about the matchmaking. i feel bad for the guys that buy the PC version and see they cant play it with anyone they know.

    makes me laugh when he says "help the community grow", by killing off one community to preserve Activisions money stream. man i hate hypocrites.
