Uncharted 3 won't feature dedicated servers

Very few console games offer dedicated servers for online multiplayer. Uncharted 3 developer Naughty Dog went on Twitter to explain why the company decided to stick with peer-to-peer networking for the upcoming sequel, which is currently in the middle of an extensive public beta test.

"We're not going to have dedicated servers," a representative commented. "The cost delta between dedicated & non-dedicated is huge long term.

The Uncharted 3 multiplayer beta entered its second weeks yesterday, now open to all PSN members. If you didn't already get in through Plus, or one of the many code giveaways, you can download it now from the PlayStation Store.

This second week brings with it a couple of new game types to play. Co-op Hunter tasks two buddies with getting treasure back to a chest to score against a combination of human and AI opponents. So far its reception has been a mixed bag, with many citing the competitive difference when coming up against an AI enemy versus a real person. Read more »
