What does 75 PlayStation 3s get you?


Why, a huge amount of official Warhawk dedicated servers -- of course! In the most recent post at the official PlayStation.Blog, the game director of Warhawk, Dylan Jobe, posted pictures of their Ranked Servers data center and talked about online/server details for their upcoming Sixaxis-friendly title.

According to Dylan, they have PS3 clusters like the one above scattered all over the world to make sure you you have access to a fast, latency free server -- no matter where you live. Also, since you can host your own servers, even if you don't find an official server you like, it shouldn't be hard to find a player server that fits what you're looking for.

Players can create their own dedicated Warhawk servers for up to 32 players at once, but they won't be able to play on their PS3 while the server is running (to longtime PC gamers, this is nothing new). Players can also create their own servers that they can play in for up to 24 players at once, offering a ton of flexibility for clans and hardcore players. Between ecstatic previews, an accessible price point and strong server support, Warhawk is looking more and more like it could be a major hit. Only three more weeks until the Game Drought of Summer is over!

[Thanks everybody!]

2. If that pic is accurate, there are 90, not 60.

3. JL they didn't say that there 60 servers, but how 60 ps3 gets u a lot of servers. Can wait

4. I would be very surprised if this game was a hit. It is fun for the first 2 hours or so, but it just doesn't have lasting appeal.

5. Warhawk is like Battlefield 2 with easier to control planes...what's not to like???

7. @Bob.Davey: You say that, but unless you've participated in the Beta, you can't really know. Every one of the beta testers I've talked to have said it's awesome. 4 player simultaneous split screen means it'll be a fun party game also.

8. i got in on the last round of beta invites and loved the game. maps are big, flying is fun and the combat was great. should be a fun summer.

9. @4, Bob.Davey

There's (many, many) people on the Beta with over 80hrs played. ;)

10. This game is DAMN fun and probably has the most depth a multiplayer game can have without being an MMORPG.

Regardless, I think even the online price is too much. I would pay $30 CDN for it, which is like $28 USD. I'm not going to shell out $50 or $80 (which is probably what the Canadian prices will be).

11. I was really hoping for up to 32 vs 32 but I can easily settle for 16 vs 16.

I can't connect to my PS3 online anymore and it sucks.

Posted at 4:53PM on Aug 8th 2007 by Andy

12. That is awesome.

I had a blast in the beta and I cannot wait to play the final product.

13. Ok if we're being anal about it.... there's 15 consoles per cabinet...the pic shows 6 cabinets... That'd be 90 consoles... but the last cabinet is missing a console or two... Now the cabinets look as though they hold one on the front and one on the back...but the back is missing the top console... I'd guess there's around 172 consoles there(88 on the front, 84 on the back) That equates to a lot of money...and me spending way too much time on this

14. I'm a beta tester and this game is amazing to say the least. I've been looking forward to it over every other 2007 release for the PS3. It DOES NOT lose any lasting appeal at all. In fact, the better you get, the more fun it becomes. I came home every night wanted to play it as much as the 1st day I got into the beta. This game will be a hit and I suggest everyone buy it.

15. They should give you rewards for putting your console on "server mode"... maybe a free psn download or something. Your reward would be based on the number of games played.

Posted at 5:46PM on Aug 8th 2007 by phattie

16. This just in. Warhawk is being delayed till 2008. It seems the company that designed the game realized they had more PS3s dedicated to the server than the general public even owns. Sorry guys!

Posted at 5:51PM on Aug 8th 2007 by Dave

17. I counted 75 PS3's on the last 5 racks. I don't think the rack on the left has PS3's.

18. This game is definitely going to get purchased day one! Between this, Lair, and Heavenly Sword this fall, I am going to be going in hibernation mode early.

Posted at 6:21PM on Aug 8th 2007 by AG23

19. @SteveMB: You may be right about the last rack

Posted at 7:25PM on Aug 8th 2007 by KeVil

20. He is right.
Good to see that Sony is making quality servers all around the world.
