Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is to feature dedicated servers on PC, following a community backlash that resulted in fans signing a petition to boycott MW3's multiplayer component.

Today at gamescom, Activision confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will indeed feature dedicated servers for the PC version, as part of an effort to show PC gamers that the Activision is serious about the platform.

Activision is, however, concerned by the open nature of the platform, which could render cheating harder to manage than on consoles.

According to Activision, the platform may also interfere with its upcoming subscription-based hub Call of Duty Elite, which award players with prizes in official contests.

If you don't win a prize, you'll likely know someone who has, admitted Activision - meaning that players may be able to cheat the system to obtain free prizes at present.

Activision did, however, confirm that the company is actively working on solutions and that it will not bring Modern Warfare 3 to market without ensuring a quality experience for all PC gamers.

Can people cheat at Black Ops on the PS3? I'm still unsure as to whether this is true. :s
I only want to know because I'm coming to the beginning on level 2 prestige. If people can cheat and become the highest prestige level without working their way up then I'm not going to bother restarting from the beginning with Prestige 3 and just leave it on level 50 on my current prestige. :)

I think this is great that MW3 is getting strong PC support. I am actually buying a new computer this Fall that can support the big title games so this is good news for me. I'm going to get the game on PS3 and PC just for different level of competition online. I saw at modern warfare 3 43 new HD screenshots of the game. Looks CRAZY good. I can't wait to buy the game and I know the PC version is going to have ridiculously crazy graphics. Looking for that detailed and hopefully it matches Battfield's PC version.

If they were so concerned with cheaters then they wouldn't be using VAC as the anti cheat system considering, it failed to stop them in Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 which didn't have Dedicated Servers, and it failed to stop them in Black Op's which had Dedicated Servers.

Only way to atleast be on top of it, allot faster than currently is to bring back Punkbuster instead of VAC atleast on all the games with Punkbuster you don't see anywhere near the amount of people using cheats as you do in VAC secured games.
