Interesting update from Mark Rubin, Executive Producer:

http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1rpgkjd

GHOSTS ONLINE CONNECTIVITY UPDATE: I wanted to give a quick update on some of the work that has been done to improve everyone’s online experience. We’ve already mentioned dedicated servers as part of the overall plan to improve connectivity. Dedicated servers will be used on current gen, next gen and PC with Ghosts. 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. Again these are just some of the things that are going into Call of Duty: Ghosts to give players a great online experience. Can’t wait to see you all online.”

He also basically admits that MS paid Infinity Ward/Activision to only speak about the dedicated servers on Xbox1:

I've just also realized that he could just mean 360,Xbone,and PC

but by not stating them specifically he could just be under some marketing contract

Ha, all platforms get dedicated servers, but they can't explicitly say that the PS3/4 versions get dedicated servers because of some deal. NDAs are weird.

How embarrassing that Microsoft specified in their contract that Infinity Ward can't publicly state the Playstation versions have dedicated servers. So we end up with this nonsense.

I thought the servers that Microsoft was using wasn't a xbox only thing and could be used for literally anything(including PS4)? I could be wrong but that's what I remember reading on gaf. I also read that the dedicated servers for xbox one aren't free but they are cheaper than any alternative. So if ghost PS4 is using dedicated servers, is it the same one XB1 is using?

Still no specific mention of WiiU though

He said 'current gen'...so WiiU is in.

I kid, I kid.

wonder if MS has asked devs to withhold other game related information?

I see no mentioning of the word "cloud" anywhere. No unlimited power for you PS4.

Well I know a few people who switched their console preorder from PS4 to Xbone due to COD having dedicated servers. Mission accomplished I suppose.

Would have been nice for them to do this with past versions. the lag compensation and general connectivity problems that I had with the last couple CODs really turned me off to the series. Doubt I'll pick up Ghosts unless Killzone SF and BF4 are huge disappointments.

remember when dedicated servers for MW2 PC was a pie in the sky dream by whiny entitled PC gamers who couldn't accept IW's gracious superior P2P vision

That quote makes me think Killzone SF and Ghosts has the same thing going on....
I had the same feeling when I read.

It is dedicated server but most of the processing will be done local.

Good, that eliminates a possible advantage for the xbone. Xbone Cod having exclusive dedicated severs would have been huge.
