A lot of technical discussion on videogames centres around content and aesthetics -- the visual fidelity of the cinematics, the fluidity of animations, polycounts, framerates, narratives, character development, etc, etc. But despite being a vital part of any online multiplayer game, networking architecture doesn't tend to get much air time.

Bull. S***. The only interest they have is "how can we turn off the service in a year and force them onto a new game, thus making us more money". They don't give a toss how good or bad our experience is.

I know I am enjoying playing on servers that don't lag for once. Multiplayer takes more of my time then single player. Aussies have had a raw deal for years as far as networking goes. Still got along way to go before we have the same experience of more developed countries though.

Errr whoop: I was referrering to the articles exploring what aspects of server tech are in the consumer's best interest. Far from suggesting that goal is shared by games publishers. Reworded it a little if that helps.
