Will PS4 have dedicated servers

12 replies 8524 views Edited Jun 13, 2013

Will Ps4 have dedicated servers to help with all the lag. MS has announced they will have over 300k and really hope that PS4 will be able to compete especially with the bigger name games and large multi player ones as well

I'm hoping so. I have a great internet connection and I never lag. I'd say they will since we are paying to play PS4 online now

Only time will tell. Since PS Plus is required for online play, that money will inevitably used to improve the network.

That's exactly what Sony said, Since multiplayer requires a PlayStation Plus subscription, they mentioned the money would go into get better, more reliable servers and improvements to everyone's overall online enjoyment. So dedicated servers are probably a given. Plus with everyone paying to play online, servers will stay on much longer. PS3 servers cost Sony large amounts of money and with us playing for free on them cost Mag, Socom, and other Sony property titles  to shut down their servers due to the cost to keep them running is too much. With us helping to fit the bill on PS4 everything online is going to be loads better than what we get on PS3 currently...

My only complaint with the ps3 system as a whole was with the download speeds. One of the reasons why I don't download much games on psn. It's easily twice as slow (or even more) than other services such as Steam or Xbox Live.

I really, REALLY hope that is the first server that gets switched on.
