Dedicated Servers

#1MarteenGreenPosted 5/10/2012 3:56:17 PM
Would you pay, say, I don't know... 400-800 Microsoft point to have your own dedicated server for a year or something?

Where you act as the host always and people can join your world even when you're not there?
Of course, you'd have the power to kick someone if the game was full when you wanted to join it.

Would you?
Do you think they'll even offer something like this?

Servers for them, cost money to hold, right? That's why they don't do it?

400 points for a year would be a steal, so yes, definitely, but definitely not until the game is fully up to date with the PC version. I don't want to rent a server only to find that it's obsolute in the next month because of an update.

Yeah I see your point. I'd definitely do it if they ever offered it.

Yep I would do it but one thing I have learned from all these years of gaming is gamers for the most part are penniless, cheap whiners so ..............

I would do if it were about $10 a month, no more. Even then I'm on the fence.

A month??? I don't think I would that Goethe amount of players they let you have.

Redstone Host, a popular hosting company used by Minecraft PC players, their cheapest option (1-16 players) is about $13 a month. So for 8 players, I don't know what would be fair.

I see. :-/

Maybe $5 or $7 a month wouldn't be so bad.
