Microsoft: Xbox One's cloud support will "eliminate unfair advantages" in multiplayer

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Microsoft: Xbox One's cloud support will "eliminate unfair advantages" in multiplayer

@thranx... I was adding to the xgame chat as a feature MS had that sony didn't... Also neither of those two things are a buying point for me personally in regards to a console. Don't get me wrong neat features (xgame chat especially), but not a real strong selling point IMO compared to Blu-ray player, built-in wifi, easily upgradeable HDD, wireless re-chargeable controllers, 8 player support, massive online games, reliable hardware...

Good to see MS is still playing catch up to Sony in regards to features...

How's the in-game voice chat coming along?

I can group chat with my Vita while playing :D



Back on  topic...

How is it going to do this exactly. Say you're playing against someone with 100ms ping, is the server going to delay your response time to equalize it for everyone? Or is it going to boot the slow player. Or is it going to limit matchmaking by ping time, so you only play against local people on a local server.

Server hosting doesn't magically fix unfair advantages, only host advantage in games that allow that to be there in the first place. It's good against cheating anyway, although this sounds a but scary "really cutting edge things that empower the community to actually take a much more active role in that"



I think that will be up to the devs to define the different options or actions of matchmaking.... the servers just do what they are told....

so all of your example are possible if that's how they want it to be...

on your scary quote I think he refers to the rating scheme that has already been talked about I think here on that forum I'm not sure I remember seeing a video.... maybe Nsanity posted it.... it was around E3

Are they refering to dedicated servers? If so then no big deal... Resistance, a PS3 launch title, had dedicated server support which allowed 40 player battles with no host advantage... that was in 2006...


That was in 2006, good point. That's why the X1 will support more than 1 game.

Actually every games :) Yep; kinda different hehe

Except Nsanity wasn't talking about the PS3, he said "Sony".

I hope Sony have the ability and amount of servers to allow every single game dedicated servers. Otherwise Microsoft have a MASSIVE advantage for those who like to play online.


How?  MS will not provide dedicated servers for every game, same way Sony will not.  Be like this gen, only MS may catch up to Sony, since Sony been doing it this gen already.


Didnt Microsoft state at E3 on stage that every single Xbox One from day 1 will have access to 3 servers each of their own?

Im positive they did.

From day 1 Xbox One launches your individual Xbox One has 3 servers allocated to it. And only your Xbox uses those 3 servers.

I doubt Sony has even 1 per every PS4 sold. 



"From day 1 Xbox One launches your individual Xbox One has 3 servers allocated to it. And only your Xbox uses those 3 servers."

so are they only expecting to sell 100k units?
