Dedicated Server Question

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just bought this since it's on sale on the PS Store, and this is bugging me: is the only current way to host a dedicated server to buy another PS4?

I get that Sony clutches its pearls when it comes to any kind of crossplay, but this isn't crossplay by any stretch, it's literally the same as these server hosting sites like G Portal, just using your own computer to run a server program.

It's 2019. What gives?

Basically, the same way g.portal and the others do.
I have a g.portal server now, basically the idea is that, instead of using a service (which runs their servers on *drumroll* a server computer, not a PS4, you'd run it on your own server computer.
Since Sony hates crossplay so much, even though Wildcard has crossplay working fine between PC and PS4, they won't even allow a person to host using a non-PS4 system, forcing players wishing to avoid paying for a service to dish out $300+ for another game console.
