Forums - Microsoft Discussion - MS is shutting down Mixer, and partnering with Facebook

⚠️

Yeah, unless we can back up any claims about lies/being misled (and it pertains to a situation like this), the concern trolling needs to go.

And how many times has MajorNelson lied about stuff?

Hes a PR guy that probably doesnt even know the inner workings of the deal or the outcome,
and just says whatever he thinks people wants to hear, as part of his PR job.

I bet you facebook or facebook gameing in some way shape or form, shows up on xbox.
Otherwise it doesnt make sense, unless MS is handing over bags and bags of money to facebook for it.
(which again could effect gamepass and its price)

Its more likely since they call it a partner ship that access to each others platforms, goes both ways.
So they both can temp people into useing their services from both sides.


Maybe Nelson is just useing word trickery.
Maybe the "current" implimentation changes, and in the new changed way, it has it.



You clearly have a pre determined narrative. Even when there is evidence to the contrary you can’t just be like “Nuh Uh”. It isn’t even a vague statement. He confirmed Facebook won’t take your info nor will the Mixer tab be replaced by Facebook. Of course you will have some kind of option to link between the two, but it won’t be mandatory. Xbox has been all about choice these last few years and going forward. 

Facebook won't take your info.  Lol that is fucking hilarious.  I'm sure they won't just stuff a tracking cookie or some other bullshit they have been doing since day 1.

Well if you don’t have a Facebook account and have a Xbox account, no, Facebook won’t get access to your information unless you authorize it somehow. Came right from Major Nelson. The quote is pretty black and white. 



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

Rumor was Sony removed Facebook for that reason since Facebook had access to your friend lists etc. But sure, I guess if you don't link up to stream anything or share videos or screenshots, FB won't have access. Anyway Sony, not the best at keeping user info safe, thought FB was too risky to get back on the system. The removal was supposed to be temporary.



I thought it was strange and sad. I did notice that not many people were watching though. Still surprised as online gaming has a big future and they invested a bunch of money capturing expensive streamers.

I preferred Beam! I thought it sounded much more interesting. With Mixer I didn't really know how to search for games - don't make me brows or I will just leave.

Facebook Gaming? Nah, I don't even use facebook anymore. It's just so sad and creepy.



 

Really not sure I see any point of Consol over PC's since Kinect, Wii and other alternative ways to play have been abandoned.
