32 players will be PC only, I think.

32 Players may be true.. I remember RB stating that were putting some new Stream lining tech into MW3 to have bigger maps... the bigger maps could be needed for a bigger player count.

But im not getting my hopes up.

I think the 32 player count on console is running on the build at CoDXP because its gonna be running on a LAN connection.

I hope its 32 players that would be deadly

How can p2p connections deal with 32 players? If this info is real and no dedicated servers, it will be lagfest.

A "war" game mode where max ppl is 18 is often much more laggy then "normal" games, 32 is really excessive for p2p.

Maybe we miss something... ?

I agree. There's no way the average person that connects to XBL will be able to handle 31 people on their connection. Anybody remember Ground War in MW2? The game didn't know if a potato or somebody with a fiber optic connection was a better host. Every other host was laggy and nobody could walk except the host.

Don't get your hopes up, that 32 players part is for the PC and its dedicated servers. As for the consoles and P2P... I HIGHLY DOUBT 32 players will run smoothly... Sure, the Xbox could have 32 players in one game, but there is no guarantee that it won't be laggy.
