MP1st - "There are only two days left in your life without Battlefield 3, or perhaps more if living overseas. Either way, it’s almost here. For now, we have a look at the brand new server browser function on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3."
Awesome!! more games on console need a server list IMO
Dedicated servers make for a much better multiplayer experience. I hope Activision will wise up and implement them in the next cod.
They won't Activision is too cheap to do something like that. anyways, this is an awesome feature, I never thought I'd see the day where a console game has a server browser option. Other companies take note!
they should but they won't do it.
You must not have played Warhawk?
All games should have ranked custom games with server browsers. There is no excuse not to have it. And I don't see why anyone would not want to have it.
So nice to be able to choose region!
this means clans can finally rent theyre own servers on consoles :) HELL YES no gimme custom server rules and i a happy chappy
No it doesn't mean that, private matches will not be on the game on launch, and servers will only be hosted by EA on Battlefield 3 on consoles, so yea...
darkgoon i know but THIS is what keeps a communit going, unlock the servers further into its lifespan and people WILL adopt and continue the game. this is the right direction thats all im saying not building any hype here
Custom server options are in! Hurray!
It's actually quite impressive. Something console games have been missing for a while.
This is good. The absence of server browsers in ANY online game is inexcusable IMHO. I hope Activision got off their arse and added this to MW3 as well.
It won't happen. Cod doesn't have servers, it is peer to peer.
Most definitely... I believe Frontlines: Fuel of War was when I entered the server browser experience being a console gamer only.
Yeah it's great knowing that you can search by region so you don't get randomly put into a laggy game because you're in Australia and the host is in the US.
Aye :) but their all copying socom confrontation 8-)
f***k yes sorry, dice knows what we need, and they deliver. DICE i love you, serisouly i do ever since BF nineteen fourtetwo :)
I really respect DICE; they have a hands-on approach when it comes to the community that many other dev houses should learn from.
this should be a requirement for all games.
Both matchmaking and server browsing would be good in halo. Server browsing for custom games and matchmaking for ranked/playlist games. That's a good idea actually *lightbulb appears above head. :)
PC online games have done this kind of thing since the dawn of time. It's the main thing I miss when I play these games on consoles. Hopefully this sets a standard.
many games have done this before too. hell, the original CS for xbox had this.
I wonder if I can hack battlelog to let my PC version join servers for console gamers.... lolz They probably use the same networking protocol and provide some kind of version ID... packet capture ftw. Consoles have deserved dedicated servers for too long, P2P networking is just bad most of the time.
Looks pretty slick. :] I'm very pleased they have the ping showing on the main browser. Also the filter options; it'll be like I have a PC again.
Great news! I have no doubts that it will be successful, I wonder what COD:MW3 will do now.
MW3 will have dedicated servers on PC, and the usual P2P on consoles.
UNRANKED dedicated PC servers for MW3.
@SP3333D-O Yes Unranked, I forgot to mention that.
awesomely DONE!!! anyone that says DICE doesn't listen to its community needs to slap themselves rignt about now.. and yes all FPS consoles shooters should have dedicated servers... if ya don't, you're not playing with power..
THIS...is how it's done. Play it your way.
Now the PC versions needs it, instead of the retarded browser browser
The Battlelog browser is awesome.
