Probably bumps up the complexity of play spaces (Destiny)

One other point:

Due to Destiny's kind a crazy architecture you can basically become host at any time. I think that's far less likely in PVP, but fairly common in PVE. Because of this, your box has to reserve cycles for hosting duties, as you box can become host anytime. According to bungie Destiny is CPU limited, so every cycle they free up can go to more enemies or friends in the space. Moving physics hosting off local boxes can in theory help increase the size and scope of battles in game.

Exactly!
