Good. What I dont understand is why didnt they include it in the first place. The only thing I am thinking is time constraints.

I think maybe they didn't plan on having it. Because of the demands of the community they added it later.

Well its good to find this out. Someone on the IW Nation forums did a comparison between this game and Quake 4. While both have been out almost the same amount of time and both are Activision games Quake 4 has gotten all the support. With its various patches and even a mappack including modding tools. They have gotten everything for their community while all of us COD 2 players get nothing. Seems to me that Activision is playing favorites. Oh Well at least its coming!

I dont think that has anything to do with Activision, these are two separate games with two separate teams so I dont think support for one or the other intertwine at all. Unless Activision is the only one that can authorize stuff of this sort.

bout the only thing pb is good for is stopping the n00b cheaters and hardware banning, while costly, most just go out and buy a new hd and nic anyways and are right back at it. im sure it will cut down a percentage of cheaters, but for the most part im a left with a big whoopdee fricking doo.

PB does hardware bans? AFAIK it doesn't do hardware bans... and plus, if they cheat with the new HD, they will be banned again. PB is good at catching most of the cheaters.

hopefully its not as gay as PB for BF2. It seems to always update when im playing and kicks me out of the game to update .. gay gay gay! It should update while you sit idle browsing for servers or wait till the round is over at least.

But if the Babe thread could get us in trouble with some conservative forums out there...just imagine what a Playboy thread would do to our rep :eek:

Hopefully it is legit and they do come through. I honestly could see them saying this to sell a few more copies just before Xmas. It would be great for our server, clan and the community should this be true. Should it not... (mikec)

PB's site has announced the news that PB will be included in a patch for COD2.

However, IW is being very cryptic regarding which patch and when said patch will be released.

They state early o6 for the next patch release, but don't exactly state that PB will be included with this patch... go figure.
