No official announcements of player count change and reading the posts underneath it seems they already had to edit the PC player count cos of a mistake once so i think this is just a mistake too.I'm not 100% though but seems more likely than 32 players
They flirted with the idea of 32 for consoles. But that talk was like 6-8 months ago. Thats swept under the rug and forgotten now. Even though a weaker system as in ps2 had 32 players for Socom Navy Seals 3 and Combined Assault. It was choppy some times.
But that was like 5 years ago when most DSL was like pathetic and cable was ok to decent. Now I think we could reach on it. But probably be lousy when a ton of scrub dsl connections pile up in the room.
