Big news for Aussie PC gaming Call of Duty fans today, as ISP Internode have announced a deal with gameservers.com to supply the dedicated servers for Activision's upcoming first person shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Previous to this announcement, Australian PC gamers were justifiably concerned that the announcement of gameservers.com as an exclusive provider of Call of Duty: Black Ops dedicated servers would likely see the U.S. based GSP (Game Server Provider) unable to adequately supply sufficient online playgrounds for Australian players.

Unlike, gameservers.com however, Internode's video-gaming contingent at Games On Net have a proven track record with providing quality games servers for Australian players and there's little doubt they'll be able to pull through with this one.

While still far from an ideal situation, this means that at least there should be a decent place for PC gamers to play Call of Duty: Black Ops online lag-free with active moderators from launch day on November 9th 2010.

For Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers of course there is no dedicated server support, so it will be business as usual with the players themselves unwittingly utilising their own internet connections as the game server for their fellow players and just hoping they don't get match-made with North Americans or Europeans.

Check out the full press release for further details on the Internode/Gameservers.com deal.
