This won't be pleasing to the hardcore.
Are you a COD4 fan just frothing at the mouth waiting for Modern Warfare 2? Many of us are too. Those of us who are looking forward to playing it on the PC have been given small frights with the rumored delay (now found untrue), and the sadly true news of the lack of dedicated servers.
Now those who are extremely hardcore into the PC versions of Call of Duty may find another slightly disappointing bit of news to do with Modern Warfare 2 – players won't have access to the console for advanced settings and options.
Vince Zampella of Infinity Ward confirmed the news in a community chat when a player asked if it'd be possible to change the FOV, weapon damage, perks, graphical debris, breathing sway, etc.
Zampella simply replied, "We would like you to play the game the way we designed and balanced it."
Other interesting Q&A bits from Mackey McCandlish include:
Mackey-IW: Players do not control who hosts.
Mackey-IW: Only players capable of hosting will be host.
Mackey-IW: Games cap out at 9v9. The software has great latency tolerance. See above!
Mackey-IW: I've been playing mainly with around 100ms ping and it was great.
