Subscribe To Modern Warfare 3 To Have Dedicated Server Support Proving Activision Does Care Updates

Hey look, PC gamers have been asking for dedicated server support since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare back in 2007 and it never happened, until now. We may all consider Activision to be a collaboration of the greediest head-honchos in the gaming industry today, and that they would probably prostitute their own mothers if it meant making a billion dollars and then bragging about how they prostituted their own mothers with a press release saying that they made a billion dollars off of said prostitution, but they did something honorable today.
Today, Activision wasn’t about making headlines by milking a franchise more than it’s ever been milked and they certainly weren’t out to cause controversy…they wanted to give back to the people, to give back to gamers.
Activision has done the unthinkable and they have announced that the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will have dedicated server support! Can I get a “woot”? Well, it gets better…Activision is also working on a customized version of Call of Duty Elite for PC gamers. Now can I get a “Woot, woot”?
In a report by Eurogamer, one the biggest (and greediest) gaming publishers out there wanted to certify that they still think about PC gamers (every once in a while) and that the dedicated server support was essential for regaining the trust that they had lost over the years. Beachhead Studios' Noah Heller told Eurogamer at Gamescom that…"The big announcement today is that we're supporting dedicated servers for PC, which is really cool,"
Also, let’s not forget that there’s millions of gamers ready and willing to buy Modern Warfare 3 off Steam and Activision wants to capitalize where EA kind of screwed up with Battlefield 3. The announcement of dedicated servers and Steam support gives Modern Warfare 3 a slight leg-up on the competition when it comes to PC sales. And even though Battlefield 3 will have dedicated server support, a lot of people are being extra leery about the mandatory Origin account and installation that comes with the PC version of DICE’s next-generation shooter.
As for the customized CoD: Elite content...there was no word on what that might be or how it might be handled, but at least PC gamers won't all be treated like pirates anymore.
