Any reason, or just to take the chance to hate on MS?


Honestly just exhausted after reading comments of ZOMG game changer brah 

Pretty much the same as the COD Ghost discussions before they came out and said yeah it's for all platforms 

So all Xbox One first party titles will have Dedicated servers. That's a good thing. But there is this...

"This is pretty big news and could give Xbox Live a huge advantage over the competition if they're unable to match it."

My head hurts from this lol. 

I am just exhausted from all the comments. It's ok to have an opinion. But it doesn't make your opinion... not wrong lol



how is not a huge adavantage ????

yeah COd was a bad exemple it's a blockbuster of course it will try to offer the same on every platform.... now for smaller title that can mean a lot and that's where the thing could be huge.... it means no need to calculate server cost for some projects from smaller dev studios... how can you say it is not better than not having the option and not being a big advantage.... ????

Panello huh.

His track record is less than pristine, but if true it's fantastic for gamers. Paying for p2p is totally ridiculous. Hopefully Sony encourages dedicated too.

It's Penello :)

Which goes against what devs have said...

"Most importantly to us, Microsoft priced it so that it's far more affordable than other hosting options"

Nobody calls free 'more affordable'.

I'm sure will be some kind of indirect 'price' for this though, like need do something exclusive, be it timed release, DLC, whatever.


I think I have the beggining of an answer to that.... pretty sure what it means is... servers space, compute time etc is free for devs.... but they pay for bandwith use and data volume transfered from said free servers to users....

not sure I'm right but that's the only explaination I see that would make both statement true....

Perhaps it is free to a certain level. Certain number of servers, number of vcores, etc are free and above that you pay a very affordable rate.

This makes sense to me, as it offers smaller devs and indies with likely smaller user bases a free option and perhaps the bigger games end up buying more space/power for the much larger user base.

Not an advantage because multiplatform games, like COD, will use same setup on both consoles.

Just like PS4 power isn't an advantage when it comes to multiplatform games since they will look and perform the same

thats some very weird logic you have.  free IS more affordable, its very simple.



I'm not really here!

Same people who makes a big fuss about the so called secret sauce are people like you. Dumber and hypocrites.



Most of the shooter I played last gen on the PS3 had dedicated servers, Warhawk, Resistance 1 and 2, Killzone 2 and 3, MAG.... I really do not see how this gives xbox live an advantage... It doesn't...
