I pre-ordered it on steam, when it opened on PC, it had lots of problems with connecting to EA online. I knew they were working to fix the problem. But because the game had such a good SP, I did not mind.
Commenting on the health of the industry tended to fall on the investment from developers. That there's a greater disconnect coming forward right now from companies like Ubisoft and Activision with the community imposing things like online authentication systems and peer to peer multiplayer. DICE took it a step back to where everyone was actually comfortable.
There was a neoseeker article two weeks ago (?) that said PC made something like 13bil in 2009; sounds like it's doing fine to me.

PC gaming is doing okay. Steam and more people understanding that Newegg is a far superior choice over Dell and HP are probably the most obvious reasons why. I really hope PC gaming doesn't actually die. As long as some of the good and most of the great titles come out for PC, I'll remain here. A lot of people buy a console because they can't get X, Y, or Z game on the PC, but that's just one or two really expensive games if that's the only thing you're buying it for.
The review was good, the videos posted really give a good insight onto the game's dynamic. It looks reminscent of Battlefield 2142, which I liked, but admittedly has some flaws. I'd like to buy this once I have made some dough.

That's awesome news. Guess it says a lot about the Modern Warfare and Battlefield audiences -- the former is primarily on 360, the latter on PC. Between this and Dragon Age, seems like PC gaming is doing pretty good now. Kinda reminds me of the 90s.
