Incognito's Dylan Jobe is the man behind Warhawk and over at the PlayStation.Blog, he wants to share with you some details on the tech behind the game's dedicated servers. Sure, Warhawk is going to offer players the ability to host matches straight from their own PS3, but they're also offering "Ranked-Dedicated" servers which are powered by – you guessed it! – PlayStation 3s! Sony's IT team has apparently built clusters like this "all over the world," providing gamers with an ostensibly reliable backbone for Warhawk fragging while providing the tinfoil hat crowd a compelling reason to unplug their PS3. They can talk to each other you know ... can't you hear them?!
