    Finally ,they have realized how much the PC gaming community values the ability to have customized servers.

    Here's a quote from an article at ars technica:

    Modern Warfare 2 was not especially loved in PC gaming circles because of the lack of dedicated servers, the inability to tweak the game's settings, and the absence of support for user-created content. It looks like Treyarch is swinging for the fences with the latest entry in the series, which will include all three, although not at launch.

    "We plan to open the game up for modding sometime post-launch. We do not know yet to what extent you will be able to mod the game. There are some purely technical issues related to engine and internal tool enhancements that do not easily fit the modtools paradigm," a developer said on the game's official forum.

    Right now? They're focusing on finishing the game. "And, dev console: confirmed," the post continues.

    Studio head Mark Lamia talked up dedicated servers earlier in the year. "We do work very hard to reconcile the desire to manipulate and modify those dedicated servers with offering them the persistent experience and benefits that the console system provides," he told CVG. "We're working very hard to marry those two things, so people can run dedicated servers and also participate in the communal experience the console players get to have, given they're all on first-party servers."
    It's time to start saving 50 for this one.

    Don't. Only one GSP, gameservers.com I think, will be allowed to host the private servers. At least according to what I heard from a very reliable source.
    Ellipses go here.

    "...given they're all on first-party servers."

    That doesn't sound like the third-party servers we all love.

    During quite some time Battlefield 2 was running on 1st party servers. Meaning the developers only selected a few game providers to host their servers. That didn't stop Battlefield 2 achieving greatness.

    What I really want to know is if/when users on different platforms will be able to play against/with each other (i.e. PS3, PC, Xbox).
