[BeefJack]Battlefield 3 PC dedicated servers will charge extra.

Planning to rent a dedicated server for Battlefield 3 on PC? Then you won’t be happy to find out that you will have to pay an extra charge on top of your monthly fee for every player slot on those servers – and on 64 player maps, those fees could soon add up.

Well this seems like a disappointment considering you would need a lot of players for large scale maps eg. Caspian and other large scale maps.

Most of the server hosts I looked at a while ago for other games charged per slot, so there isn't really anything new here.

If it's $1 for every player slot, I don't see a problem with this. Donating is a wonderful thing But if it's more per player, I don't see this game taking off too hard...
