Is it possible to create your own server on the Xbox 360?


No. There is nothing in place (unless I've missed it) to host a game of BF3 on your own server. This is for the best as hosting one's own server opens up the potential for great abuse.

You can find an empty server sometimes using the server browser, but you need to have 6 players in the server for the match to begin.

They have just added dedicated servers for the consoles. You need to pay though ! Its called rent-a-server.

(this is for anyone still interested to know)


You cannot make your own servers hosted from your local xbox, the reason for this and the six player minimum is because of cheaters. A lot of people stat pad, or find methods of getting points quickly and effortlessly to rank up. It was a massive problem in Battlefield 2 and is still a problem in BF3. EA claims they went through and wiped accounts that showed signs of cheating, but I still see players with rediculous ranks, so they failed.
