As promised, here is AusGamers' Q&A with Infinity Ward Creative Strategist Robert Bowling
Unfortunately due to questions having to only be relating to the new Stimulus Pacakage downloadable content map pack we were unable to push for any more broader (read: dedicated server) type questions, but we did nonetheless manage to get a few tasty bits outside of the scope.
Well for your audience [Australians], your audience will probably see the biggest change. There is stuff that will affect everybody, like we're tweaking the one-man-army perk and how that works a little bit - balancing that a little more. But we're also adding in some match-making functionality for the 360 version that will help our international players quite a bit in finding more locally hosted games for them and I know that's a big request from our Australian players. That will actually be going in on the patch just prior to the DLC.
No doubt those still plugging away on the Xbox 360 version will be pleased to hear that.
