My thoughts.   It comes as no surprise to me that after all the hype and the "listening to the community" blurb, Activison / Treyarch have effectively ignored the potential customer feedback re COD:

Starting to believe VAC and PB are not much different for hack detection. I've been playing MoH and the amount of high skill players is just amazing. They are too good but guess what you can't do fu*k

And what has been totally mind-blowingly creative in the last 2 CODs? They still run on DX9 ffs. Gamers don't get mad a something truly creative. They get pissed off when their games are stripped d

It's shaping up to be something worth buying unlike the rest of what's coming out. I just hope they listen to what the fans want and not try to cut features and tell them they don't need it.

If they have the ability to make your own servers I will be a very happy person, getting very sick of the trusted provider crap.

cod:black ops will allow US and EU to play MP together.

Scroll wheel - yes.

Prone - yes.

The good news is that the pc version of cod:black ops will allow you to play either way so bring on the kb+mouse vs controller matches!

-pcdev-

 

cod:black ops will run on XP, Vista, and Win7.

We decided to have dedicated servers for this title from the very beginning of the project. We have not wavered from this for a moment. CoD Black Ops PC has dedicated servers. Definitely.

-pcdev-

 

You will be able to lean, here's a teaser...there's something new about prone in this one.

... come on PunkBuster and Public Server Files...

 

*fingers crossed*

 

If that happens, I will cancel my BC2 server for good. My BC2 server at gs.com still crashes like each day or so when server is full. Not going to miss BC2 anyways.

Agreed. If this pans out the way we hope I'll turn off our BC2 servers and will finally be able to have full access to our server again. Stupid ranked restrictions.

Actually CoD never had public server files. The ability to run a server was included in the client which is why you have to upload gigs of data to run a server where other games that have server files the files usually are much smaller.

 

The reason for no files is security reason in BC2 / MoH is security reasons which also means they won't release any server code in the client to make onslaught P2P for example. Looks like CoDBO will have co-op modes etc so the server code has to be included for it to work:

 

# Improved matchmaking and server browser.

# Modern Warfare 2's host migration will be included.

As for PB I have a feeling it may use VAC. Just looking at a possible trend with Activision developers that have used PB in the past who have now switched to VAC. IW for MW2 and Splash Damage for Brink have done it so far.

 

Honestly if PB is the only think missing I will still buy it. Gameplay is always #1 with me over PB or DX11 eye candy.

Anyway...

PC details:

- Dedicated servers and the developer console returns. -pcdev: "demo recording: confirmed"

Okay, I might have been wrong... :/

OP is making an assumption on that.

Host migration and matchmaking was all I needed to see to say no.

 

that is for co-op, right?

 

dedi servers for MP would not need matchmaking and host migration....then again, lots of weird stuff in games lately

It will be similar to Medal of Honor where you can have the game choose a server for you or you can choose through a server list. Yes, MP will have dedicated servers.

I agree; just because host migration and match making is in the game it doesn't mean we won't see the true dedicated servers we're use to.

 

This is where MW2 went wrong, they did a complete replace instead of introducing "new" "easy" features for the apparent demand for those features.

 

There's no doubt that MW2 could survive with both.
