Hackers Make Modern Warfare 2 Ded. Server?

When news came that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 would come without dedicated servers for the PC version, gamers were upset and disappointed at the removal of one of the advantages of the PC platform.

Some PC gamers even decided to boycott the game. Of course, that didn't seem to hurt sales too much as Modern Warfare 2 went on to become the fastest selling game in history. Clearly Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gamers weren't fazed by what was happening on the PC front.

Interestingly, and perhaps not too surprisingly, it appears as though some crafty PC gamers have been able to hack together a dedicated server for Modern Warfare 2, complete with mods such as superjumping and grenade spamming galore. So far all we have is a video of it in action, but we'll let you know if we hear more.

    This may be worth it if, but only if it becomes widely used, +1 for the developers.

    What do you care Marcus? You can't play it on a Mac anyway.

    Modders making IW look like a joke. On top of this you are able to play online, on IWnet, and with whatever lvl/pretige you want with a pirated copy. Excellent security... right. All this within a week of release.

    "Hackers Makes Modern Warfare 2 Ded. Server?"

    Pluralize either Hackers or Makes -- not both.

    Or better yet use a decent spellcheck. How damn hard is this for you to do?

    It was bound to happen. I hope IW isn't so dumb as to think they can control this kind of action.

    You should note that, since "Editor" starts with a vowel, you should use "An", not "A".

    Since when is 'makes' a plural and how would a spell checker have helped here?

    What is this, English class!? Thank you Marcus, for this relevant news post.

    I hope you are taking great pleasure out of fragging your haters from your Mac running Windows/Bootcamp on this modded server. Cheers!
