Default Modern Warfare 2 PC: no dedicated servers, mods

Kinda sucks, it takes away most of the incentive there was to buy the PC version.
Quote:
We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there will be NO dedicated servers or mods for the PC version of Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 (also on PS3, Xbox 360). Community Manager Robert Bowling, aka fourzerotwo, said so himself in a podcast.

It's not just the dedicated servers or mods that'll be missing from your MW2 fix. Said Bowling, there will also be no server lists and matchmaking features. They've got a lot of explaining to do, so why don't you hear out what he has to say for yourself by checking out the podcast linked below. You'd want to jump to the 1 hour 41 minutes mark for the relevant portion.

In the meantime -- take this as a bone thrown your way or what -- but here's a new batch of screens from the yet-unnamed new Multiplayer map that's coming.

Doesn't appear that way.

Weird, perhaps they haven't been getting the revenue from the PC market to make it worth it.

I'd lay down some PC smackdown but this is the game room... Unless PC smackdown is allowed in here for some reason. >_>

No mods? That's pretty bad.

No server lists or matchmaking? So how the hell do you play online?

I guess peer-to-peer? You would have to set it up yourself?

It basically going back to stone age in multiplayer terms.

By no dedicated servers they mean no private dedicated servers. IW will be providing it's own dedicated servers for players to use. This is ostensibly to prevent people with pirated copies of the game from connecting to cracked servers.

no private servers is a deal breaker for me.
