Battlefield 3 Can Handle 256 Players, Goes Intimate Instead

Battlefield 3 details continue to leak and while the human-rumble-pakwas impressive, certain multiplayer details are a bit more meaningful.
Speaking with reporters DICE CEO Patrick Soderlund said that the upcoming sequel is capable of MAG sized matches:
A lot of people ask us about 64 versus 128 or 256 players. Technically, we can go to 256, we've tried it. We play tested with 128. You've got to make a game that's fun to play and, arguably, we think that the most fun you can have is when it's between 32 and 40 players.The current multiplayer specs for Battlefield 3 still fall below DICE's "fun-zone," but patience is a virtue. I doubt we'll have to wait very long for server-side mods to open up the battlefield to much larger matches. Dedicated servers are a wonderful thing, aren't they?
