Call of Duty: Ghosts

CoD: Ghosts' dedicated servers aren't Xbox One exclusive

8:30 PM on 10.07.2013 // Jordan Devore

Hybrid system will attempt to find the best matches

Up until this point, there's been little if any talk about dedicated servers for Call of Duty: Ghosts outside of such support being confirmed for Xbox One. The game's coming to platforms other than Xbox One, as you surely know, and so are dedicated servers. "[They] will be used on current gen, next gen and PC," said executive producer Mark Rubin.

"And, in order to make sure that people have the best possible experience regardless of platform, location or connection, Ghosts will be using a hybrid system of dedicated servers and listen servers. So no matter where you are the game will always be trying to give you the best online performance possible. There is also some great new tech in the matchmaking system that will place players in matches that have the best combined overall connectivity performance."

If you're wondering about the lack of specific platforms there, Rubin went on to say that "[Infinity Ward] can't call out any other platforms by name." Well, that doesn't leave much to the imagination. On a more positive note, he did say the team is "Hoping to add server browser and rent-able ranked server once we get through launch crunch."

Not especially relevant, but screw it. Still cracks me up:

Steam rejected the DP refund. Meh, It's been a long time between when I bought and played it, don't care anymore, heh. Decided to play more MGS4 on PS3 and start replaying Rayman Origins on PC. Fun games that actually work.

Being an asshole, watching this Star Citizen debacle unfold and seeing Cloud Imperium's meltdown about the whole ordeal is incredibly entertaining. Even if the allegations ARE false, CI's official statement comes off as wonderfully bitter and petty.

Alright. Playing off of the Avatar question, why did you choose your username?

I tried playing Deadly Premonition on Steam from my backlog today and it's a GODAWFUL pc port. I bought it forever ago but I requested a refund. If anything I don't want it in my library....

Why is it that Sundays always feel so lazy? I always tell myself I'm going to get things done and then...well....

So, I plan on using my GameStop Power-Up Rewards points (yes) to buy all the eventual P4DAN DLC. Even though the practices are very suspect. I am so not made of stone. Moreso blubber and Dr. Pepper.

Having a puppy and trying to play legend of grimrock 2 somewhere the puppy normally doesn't get to hang out is a futile effort.

Shafts of light emanated from Robo Panda Z's eyes, illuminating the intricately engraved obelisks looming impossibly above him. A whispered voice spoke from the obelisk. Do you pay too much for your Internet? Comcast. Like you have a choice.

I miss Kill la Kill - I think mostly because it was so damn entertaining to have a bunch of people drawling, "Nuuuuuuuuudiiiiiiiist Beeeeeeeeeeeaaaach" at each other.
