Call of Duty Black Ops is looking like my next game purchase. Treyarch will be bringing back the dedicated servers as well!
There is no reason to boycott. Treyarch, the developer behind Black Ops, actually made COD, COD3, and COD: World at War. Infinity Ward was only the company to introduce the Modern Warfare series. Thanks to them, now all FPS games will finally be what FPS should be like. I fully support the MW series and the guys behind Infinity Ward (Respawn Entertainment), but I will not boycott the series. Are you kidding?! Black Ops looks AWESOME!!!!!A Lot of COD Fans are boycotting after MW 2, But I think Black Ops will be fun and of course Dedicated Servers are a Bonus
I am well aware of Treyarchs History, when I said Many are Boycotting: If you read threads and posts at major CoD Sites many fans are still dissapointed by MW2, I own the entire series and Black ops has been on Pre order since May 01, I hope Tek is correct about this one and the ChapterThere is no reason to boycott.

A small catch: The only way to host a private dedicated server is to rent one from one of DICE's "authorized hosts,"
VAC is, to my knowledge, only used in Valve games.VAC should actually work. Just saying you may want to re-think which platform to buy on... It seems as though there is more bang for your buck in the PC version
Thx . I let it download over night and fired it up before work this morning. Unless There is a fair amount of adjustment its not looking good for playability. The graphics were very choppy on my aging PC. I'll mess with the settings when I get home, but its not looking good .Will do. Just gotta change the PW later on tonight or tomorrow morning. Then i'll pm it to you
