Honestly, they have done enough already to piss of the PC crowd that I made up my mind months ago.I'm waiting to see the official response to the shit storm that is coming up around this.
Monday morning should be a fun day for all IW employees.

Aside from the interesting Steam-related news, the latest I have heard related to dedicated servers was a comment from a GSP (anonymous source as he wanted anonymity) that dedicated servers will in fact be available. Apparently, he was contacted by IW on this topic recently.
