Currently playing PUBG on Xbox One places Aussies into the Asia server queue, and as expected wait-times are pretty much non-existent. Thanks to, you know, PUBG being the most-popular-thing-in-the-world-right-now. But international servers no matter what the distance can mean one thing - lag. In a response to AusGamers Microsoft notes that it is monitoring the region.
Even though this is in marketing-speak it bodes well for local players if sales hit of the still early access PUBG take off on Xbox One. Not that there's any reason why they shouldn't.
“The PUBG Corp. team has selected the server structure that best meets the needs of each region and provides the most optimal wait times and gameplay experiences available in each market. In addition to the servers available immediately at launch and with the opening of the Asia server option, the team will continue investigating the need for new servers in different regions to better serve the growing PUBG community on Xbox around the world.” A Microsoft Spokesperson told AusGamers.
So yeah, local servers would be great. As would a number of fixes ranging from simple stuff like a brightness slider and bigger performance patches as PUBG on Xbox One is still a pretty choppy experience. Fun though. A lot of fun.
