This is amazing. You thought that PlanetSide’s ‘600 players’ fight was awesome? Wait till you see this new, 1K fight from Man vs Machine, a browser-based FPS that is created by the Swedish developer MuchDifferent. Contrary to other MMO’s, Man vs Machine has managed to support 1000 players in the same game session as they were giving their best in a single FPS battlefield. This is just awesome and there is also a video from that fight after the jump, so be sure to check it out.
What’s really important here, is that there was no lag at all, even with that insane amount of players. You’ve seen a lot of MMO’s crawling at their respawn places due to various latency issues, so when a browser-based game comes out, supporting 1000 players without any lag issues, you begin to wonder how those triple-A studios haven’t figured out a similar solution about it.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
