      PS3 and hosting issues

      Hi all,
      I host regular Far Cry sessions on PS3. They are always private rooms. I have issues with people connecting to me. I can have 7 or 8 people in my lobby who have connected ok. But others cannot join the game. If someone else re hosts the room then they connect no problem. My PS3 has a static IP and is within the DMZ of the router (black sagem) Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

      At a guess I'd say your limited by your upload speed.
      If you take the bandwidth needed for each player as 100kbps or there abouts it works out at about 7-8 players, based on your upload speed

      Hmmm... I dunno Billy. The other guy who takes over the hosting only has an upload speed of 0.30Mb/s and he has no problems with 16 in a room
