Is it enough to win back PC gamers?

Last week we learned that the PC version of Call of Duty: Ghosts would be a thing of beauty, getting its own assets instead of reusing those made for the console versions. And now, thanks to a partnership between Nvidia and Activision announced at Gamescom, we know that the PC version will have other additional benefits.
Best among those is surely the dedicated servers being developed for the PC version of Ghosts, as developers have thankfully admitted that matchmaking is not the golden child they spent years claiming it was. Stat fans have more to look forward to however, as Call of Duty: Elite – Activision’s social networking and stat management system first implemented in Modern Warfare 3 – will finally be available for PC players with the release of Ghosts.
Naturally there are Nvidia specific features for Ghosts too, like the integration of TXAA (Temporal anti-aliasing) and hardware accelerated PhysX support allowing the developers to create significantly more realistic smoke. It’s difficult to make that sound exciting when you lead with dedicated servers though. You can read more about the partnership between Nvidia and Activision on the Geforce site.
