Forums - Gaming Discussion - NeoGAF: Xbox One OS and XBL having issues that will take months to fix

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=705280

 

The short story is that Xbox Live and the OS, especially in functions that involve XBL, are a complete fucking mess. One source says we aren’t talking weeks until it works correctly but “months.” Things like parties dropping people when moving from one thing to another. Connectivity issues. Missed invites. Friend requests not working, etc.

“Let me get into some technical detail regarding it – on 360, the OS handles all of the party and chat functionality. All you do is hook up the XBL VOiP OS API into your game, and it does most of the work for you. With it results in is a shared experience across multiple entertainment. If you’re watching movies or playing games, you can do it together. However, this system is entirely different on Xbox One. So, lets say me, you, and Thuway have xbox one’s that are online. We are signed in our profiles. Sitting at the home screen, we are considered to be in a “Xbox Party” on the server. There are no more ‘party leaders’. With that said if any one of us decide to start a game, the party is shifted over to that game’s party system. Each game now has their custom written VOIP.” (Pete note: shoutout to thuway!)


I asked if could be fixed soon. He said that anything is possible and Microsoft is obviously working on it but he thinks it will be months, not weeks. Getting online launch games certified is taking so long that it’s pushing games after launch back.

 

 

 

UPDATE: “The system OS and network integration was written by a group of people who do not play games. They don’t understand why things were set up in the ways they were designed by J Allard back in ’05.”

 

 

 

This guy is a legit source and has inside information. His track record is proven at Neogaf, but still take it with a grain of salt for now. 

We will all find out in a few weeks anyways!

Can we just start calling VGC NeoGaf 2.0 ???

@Op - If true then all is good.  Launches usually have a few technical difficulties.  Though i do want to point out that Skype replaced party chat (Unless im mistaken)

NeoGAF leaks have been mostly accurate for the entire year, so give them a bit of respect.

Its the only forum that has legit insiders.

"fucking mess" seems like an hyperbole.


Damn. Now this bullshit rumor??? Holy shit. Everytime something goes bad for fucking Playstation, a new bogus Xbox rumor shows and everyone hops on the dick sucking tour that is Xbox bashing.

Don't go bitching and crying when it happens on November 12th. THAT is the key date. THAT is when the dam breaks. I personally cannot wait to feast on Sony ponies.

 

Moderated - Kresnik.

How do YOU know it's a bullshit rumor? GAF has a few legit insiders and this is one of them.

 

Sounds like U MAD.
