    Is this article implying that there will be next-gen games that won't have dedicated servers?
    We know and that was the jist of my post.
    I remember when it was first revealed (2009) there would be no dedi support people went nuts because they and I knew it would be inferior and were right.

    No it doesn't imply that, at least from my reading of it that is.

    I'm thinking all next-gen games will have dedicated servers. The indie mp games will probably just rent servers from Sony for cheap...not sure how all that stuff works but I think since online play requires money on both consoles, both have cloud, cloud means dedicated servers, why would they not all have dedicated servers?

    Why would anyone want to put up their own servers when you can just ask Sony to do it for them?

    So the point is, IF all games will have dedicated servers, should we proceed to make a thread about every game saying that it will have them? Unless again, this would make more sense if other games did not have them or not all had them.

    We just came off of a generation that for the most part didn't have any. And we also don't have confirmation that EVERY game will have dedicated servers on Xbox One.

    it would be cool if they ran dedicated from the get go, then as time goes by and the game isn't played as much, they could drop it back to p2p.
    i like how i can play some der riese whenever i want to no matter how far down the track it is

    There's no doubt in my mind that every game will have dedicated servers. You have the technology, why not? For developers to have their own servers, they will be incurring more costs to themselves (which is especially highly unlikely on Xbox because MS had set up their own servers last gen) or they'd charge you for it (which we know will never happen).

    So maybe for games that don't have dedicated servers, it's likely that both Sony and MS will provide those as I think Sony is also done with giving away free server support. Either way if you have cloud then it's likely better to just go that way rather than setting up separate servers, probably won't be good when you think of economies of scale.

    It's still possible that not all games might (small indie ones) but more than likely all normal games should have dedicated servers.
