    I agree. Also, why aren't gaming sites investigating this? It seems at least somewhat important to some gamers.

    I have never been less confident in a gaming news outlet than when I saw "realgamernewz.com"

    @psylah:

    I'll give you that. But regardless of their credibility, the fact remains that Mark Rubin promised dedicated servers on current and next gen. It has been confirmed that they do not exist on ps3, ps4, or 360.

    I played a few matches yesterday. Haven't encountered any serious problems, don't know if that's because of the patch or not.

    The reports of no dedicated servers is really frustrating, but if you're not hyper competitive with the series it's still fun to sit down for an hour and play a few matches.

    I'm not a big multiplayer gamer but I did play some CoG Ghosts over the weekend and everything was smooth sailing. I just wish Battlefield 4's online was the same.

    @zachmorrissey--DEF:

    I agree with you. But when matches are player hosted, you get things like Killcams that make no sense and being shot around corners. Because what is actually happening on the host is not what you are necessarily seeing. If you play for long enough, you notice it and it becomes a bad experience.

    Worse, it becomes an experience that is inconsistent. You then come to expect it and it becomes less and less based on your skill and more on luck of the connection.

    When they announced dedicated servers, I was ecstatic because I felt I might actually be able to have consistent fun.

    I know people are excited and were giving Sony so many props, but I was standing back and thinking, people are cheering not because it is better than the Xbox One, it is just better than the PS3. Download times, friends communications, UI, online gaming. Seems like the basics are now catching up to Xbox Live circa 2008. They added the twich/ustream support and sharing, but that doesn't affect gameplay.
