The last Call of Duty likely did not please PC players, largely in part because of a lack of dedicated servers. But Treyarch chief Mark Lamia tells the website Computer and Video Games expect them to return for Call of Duty: Black Ops when it releases November 9. "I think dedicated servers are excellent," Lamia tells CVG. "I don't see any reason not to see them unless... well, I just don't see any reason not to." Black Ops will also be available on Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Blizzard has posted some details on the official World of Warcraft website on how to opt-in for the closed beta of expansion Cataclysm. According to the post, players need a WoW license attached to their Battle.net account, upload their system specifications to the beta profile settings page and "have expressed interest through the franchise-specific check boxes." No word on when the closed beta will start. Cataclysm is expected to release later this year.
