One posters comment got may attention it was as follows:
Activision has abandoned the PC market........
not completely since they are still raking in a bunch of idiots cash with their COD BullOps......and selling map packs at like 20USD ? even on steam ,
My opinion is it has some merit , I think with time your going to see a sharp increase in the price of consoles and at the same time less computer games being in the market place. It's going to easier to develop game for standardize consoles than it will for the PC gamer thus less time and money for development.
That would cut the cost and time for updates and patches , but not meaning they still wouldn't be needed.
I have to agree with him about continuing map packs coming after the launching of the game tho , making the game over all more expensive in the long run
