Here is an interesting article:

http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/59957


TimeGate Studios today announced that its upcoming shooter Section 8 will allow players to host Xbox 360 servers on PCs


The servers will support up to 32 Xbox players at once, resulting in one of the larger Xbox 360 multiplayer shooters. Without a dedicated server, Section 8 only supports 16 players on the console.


If these guys were able to figure this out for Section 8, can't others (Microsoft Game Studios, Infinity Ward, Bungie, etc) figure this out for their major AAA games?

Valve and EA do this already. It is just sorta frowned upon by Microsoft as they would be forced to keep them up indefinitely unlike the traditional Ea strategy of 1-2 years.

This is such a cool idea...who would have thought MS would even allow it.

This would be running a dedicated 360 server on your PC, which is a first as far as I know.
