Should Online Console Games Have Dedicated Servers?

Squidgee Tribes Arial Assault (69 comments)

There's actually a player made server (AADS) for Tribes:AA that runs on a PC. it actually fixes a lot of the bugs in the game, too.

This sort of thing really isn't a tricky thing for console game makers to do; they just don't want to let the players have that much control over the server environment.
