Release date is 11-13-09 (just doesn't have as nice of a ring as 11-10-09) but you can now pre-order Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 2
on Steam. That is if you're not boycotting the game because of the whole dedicated server issue. Yeah, I'm disappointed by the dedicated server thing but I guess we'll see how well IW.NET works out.
Also, the game is selling for $59.99 so there's the Activision price bump they were talking about MW2. The norm has been that the PC version of the game sold for $10 less than the console version but Activision's bucking the trend here.
I've never played a Call of Duty game on the console and that includes Call of Duty 3,
which I never played. I was happy to see Modern Warfare
and World at War
(another one that I didn't play yet) come back to the PC so I'll be picking this one up over the console version.
