Internet communities are ablaze this week, as Xbox and PC players decry Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare exclusivity deal with Sony. The deal gives PS4 players access to Survival Mode for an entire year before opening it up on other platforms. But that’s not the only controversial platform restriction surrounding the upcoming title. Although not present in last weekend’s open beta, upon its release, Modern Warfare will require its PC players to perform all the game’s graphical computations by hand.
PC players are understandably worried about the effect this disparity will have on the game’s performance and the potential disadvantage in cross-play matches. Having to solve billions of calculations per rendered frame may have a negative impact on the frame rate.
Infinity Ward has weighed in on the subject and assures the community that there will be a fully robust computing environment, complete with a tutorial presented by an enthusiastically emotive paperclip, built into the PC version of the game. This would at least allow players the luxury of leaving their paper and pencils tucked away in their desk drawer bunker, where they haven’t seen the sun since the Bush administration.
