    You're diverging from the matter here.
    Ever played a multiplayer PC game like Counter Strike or Battlefield? Ever seen the column detailing the latency (ping) of every server listed? How come there can be such huge differences? Aren't they still basically using CAT5 cables?

    Ok now I am pissed. Arg I am glad I did not buy it for the PS3 =) but, c'mon I bought a damn system expecting something great considering what I invested in it. Oh well guess 360 is what I am going to buy the game for. Damn going to have to get gold now.

    Gold is less than $1 a week.
    Just keep the small change that tend to fall off.

    i don't play much online, but while ping isn't really important for MMO or FPS where reactivity isn't as crucial, it is for fighting games (at least that is the impression that i have, good timing and reactivity being super important with fighting games).

    As for the problem with CS/other servers, i guess some of them are just overloaded, or the network is locally overloaded, or they are just more distant.... (or the numbers are put for fun at random )
    I guess that even if it works smoothly with people in the same area it may screw up for international connections... <= please tell me if it works well or not when you will have the game, with local and international players

    Ah, so you are talking without knowledge on the matter?
    Please know that there's more to internet connections and online multiplayer than the wire that goes into your NIC.

    Compare the average fan-run server (for a game like Counter Strike Source) against a server set-up by an experience clan. The latter will be better because they can afford larger bandwidths, better hardware and better knowledge on how to set it up right (tickrate, cvars, etc).
    The same goes for Xbox Live where it's an environment that's properly administered.

    Im just here wondering if this game will run at its absolutely necessary framerate of 60fps over Live. I'm very skeptical.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    This doesn't solve my problem, as the server only serves to put the client preparing to fight into contacts (for this game it would be stupid otherwise), and thus only the connection between the 2 clients fighting each other is important (and you can have the best server out there, even with green aliens technology it won't work faster than a direct connection between the guys fighting)
    And here is the problem : i think that even if they are directly connected their ping will be too high for a good fluidity/reactivity, at least for people who live far apart from each other.

    This said, i'd like you or other people playing to this kind of game online to confirm if the lag is too important or if it is unnoticeable

    Instead of pointing fingers at the technology, blame people whose internet connection suck.

    lol sure, but they should blame their ISP then ^^
    Even with good internet connections on both end, i'm not sure someone will be able to play smoothly with another one from the other end of the globe though... ?
