    Seriously, and what a shame it is. I remember sitting down around Christmas time, I was still in school at the time and we were on winter break. I had just gotten the original Call of Duty as a gift, and I remember being completely blown away by it. The level of intensity, the sound of the MG42's firing overhead and the explosions were something on a completely different level.

    I played it all night until I beat it, and it was still one of the best experiences I've had gaming. Then they went and ruined it with the CONSTANT gunfire of the Modern Warfare series, and now its just a console moneymaker. Really sad :(

    I guess all the people running leaked copy of Skyrim on Xbox 360 didn't get the memo (no PC leaks, steamworks).

    It is only as insecure as they let it be. They could only keep stats of people playing on their approved servers for their purpose.

    This.

    The PC isn't an insecure platform, only their software solution is.

    It's like companies still making use of punkbuster to "secure" their software in this day and age.

    If they'd want to, they could implement it without any real problems. Just have Rated servers which have to pass through authorization and have unrated servers which anyone can set up and run. You don't even have to have people do it, just create a server-side DRM. Reply

    "We can’t give away prizes when people can easily cheat their stats."

    So they admit it's really their problem with regard to the software. Then do a better job making it secure from cheats.

    Typical industry move nowadays - make something for the consoles then try to port it to pc. That just doesn't work. So stop trying to do that! The process should be the opposite. I would imagine it would be easier to dumb something down for a console than try to enhance something for a pc with hardware that exceeds the typical console.

    I work with a guy that plays x360 games on live from his laptop. Cheating isn't hard for people like him. Reply
