DICE introducing server rental for console Battlefield 3

DICE introducing server rental for console Battlefield 3

Finally allows console players to live like PC gamers.

Console players of Battlefield 3 will shortly be able to rent their own dedicated servers, DICE has announced.

DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson announced the initiative during an evening event at GDC 2012.

"We almost see [the Battlefield 3 community] as a family," he said.

DICE works with, and approves, dedicated server providers for the PC version of the game. Whether these providers will support console, or even how DICE will manage dedicated servers on console, is currently unknown.

Once a user has paid for their own dedicated server, on the PC at least, they can fiddle with its various options to their heart's content. For instance, they can set it to be a private or public server, choose what maps and game modes are played.

Server owners can also kick, ban and mute players.

This sounds really good and definately worth looking into once its launched. Maybe we could all chip in to rent a server for the site, depending on what the cost is.

Consoles can only handle a maximum of 24 players, anymore and the
hardware would strain. Usually, it's an initial $1.50 per slot for BF3,
so $1.50x24 would end up being roughly $36p/m. So I'm going to push it to
$45 just incase there's a little increase on it being a Console server.

Hope this is informative. Smile
