then why don't all 3rd party developers use it?
games like Destiny, BF4 and the Division will use their own servers.

MS think they can force dependency on 3rd parties and then use that to call the shots, but publishers are wise to that.

Dobgamers1106d ago

Because they already have dedicated servers, but games like cod ghosts or Minecraft etc... will use Microsoft's servers.

Sitdown1106d ago

Man, according to N4G...everything Microsoft does has an evil story line or plot behind it.

Mr_Nuts1106d ago

@Sitdown

Maybe because they have done so many times in the past that you kind of become skeptical when they state something new.

People learn from past experiences you know.

georgeenoob1106d ago (Edited 1106d ago )

@Sitdown
Welcome to N4G.

@Mr Nuts
No, actually it's because this site is infested with fanboys that feel threatened by competition so they feel the need to oppress it any way they can. The hate for MS on this site is without a doubt extremely unjust.

n4rc1106d ago

Name one...

Evil plots you construct in your head don't count..

Its become very apparent as the fanboys let it out... They are pissed off that Xbox fanboys gave them shit 7 years ago so now its payback..

It has nothing to do with facts or truth..

HammadTheBeast1106d ago

@Sit down

If it's your first time on the site, note that georgenoob and nr4c are two of the biggest hypocrites on the site. Most of their comments attack "fan boys" when they pull off the exact same ***t.

NewMonday1106d ago

MS lost our trust and they have to earn it back by actions not PR

they lost it it when they tried to spin the DRM policy, again they try to spin dedicated servers as an infinity powerful "cloud", they lost the trust with the TV TV TV sports TV talk, they lost the trust with "prism"

you have to excuse us for not putting up with BS call us fanboys if you like.

"MS lost our trust and they have to earn it back by actions not PR"

Sums it up perfectly for me. My faith in them went after the kinect unveiling. My trust in them went after the Xbone controversy.

Put up or shut up.. can talk a good talk but walk a good walk. In five years time if they are still as committed to gamers as they were at E3 this year, my trust in them will be somewhat restored.

EXVirtual1106d ago

@georgeenoob, I honestly thonk all the 'hate' going towardds MS is well deserved. As for fanboys feeling threatened by MS as competiton, what are they threatened by? A company that has to damage control on reddit and use high end PCs at E3? Face it. M$ were so butthurt that they had to raid the Nintendo Best Buy E3 thing. I also think a lot of xbox fanboys have migrated here, especially since MS took out the DRM.

Docknoss1106d ago

Mr. Nuts maybe Your Flocking nuts, don't be so schitzophrenic and maybe one day you Will have the social skills to plsy online gaming with a mic. Make a few friends and realize the government isn't watching you after all.

FITgamer1106d ago

@Dobgamers i doubt COD Ghosts will use M$ dedicated servers, they probably just continue using crappy P2P.

Bluepowerzz1106d ago

i really dispise the new swarm of nutrals and xbox fanboys who support a company who is trying to ruin my hobby exuse me for supporting a company who is doing the consumer good rather than one who isnt go to hell .

The_Con-Sept1106d ago

It just occurred to me that Microsoft is the new gamespy! The whole watcher kinect charade aside Microsoft is just trying to squeeze a bit more money out of the developer.

Again let developers make a better decision. Then watch Microsoft charge you for using a different server.

Most third partie companies will use it because they dont have the money to build their own cloud infrastructure. The Division may have their own cloud servers but Watch Dogs will be using it.

Eddie201011106d ago

What makes Xbox live the best online gaming story?

Cross game chat. That most people don't even use.

Why it's not.

Charging to use services that you pay for by putting them behind Xbox live pay wall (Netflix, HuLu, HBOGo, and many more)

Having lots advertising on a service you are already paying for.

Havng the same problems that all other online services have, lag, being offline, cheaters.

badboy7761106d ago

@Eddie

you took the words out my mouth.

I bought a 360 last year just for black ops 2. Come to find its the exact same as PSN. I played it a few times sold it after 2months. I'm glad I bought everything used on craigslist.

nukeitall1106d ago

Let me see:

* first console to require broadband connection and essentially made online gaming mainstream on consoles
* brought gamercard, achievements and socialness to consoles
* still the only console to offer cross game chat and party chat! After all these years too!
* first to bring Netfix and it's slew of apps to consoles
* first interactive video viewing on console
* as far as I know, MS is the only one hotpatching their servers during maintenance i.e they don't take off servers and shut down access needed

I could keep going, but yeah, Xbox Live is still the king and the competition is just at best starting to get "some" feature parity.

Now, I could only imagine what would have happened if the original Xbox had an outcry about requiring broadband. Would we still be gaming dial up on Xbox 360?

thedon8982z1106d ago (Edited 1106d ago )

Another trick from M$..to try some way to make the industry become dependent on them(so they can become a necessity rather than a competitor) and get easy money..just like what they did with [email protected] M$,next they will be telling gamer's they invented TEAM-DEATHMATCH!!!

TheXgamerLive1105d ago

Dude! Why are you and many otber sony fanboys on here whiney little bitches? Grow a pair put on some big boy pants and stop all the crying and constant lies. Report away. Someone has to say it.

Gaming is a fun beautiful world that we all get to immerse ourselves. Shut it and enjoy.

look at that tittle: "Xbox One Has Best Online Gaming Story Ever"

They are murdering the English language.

aiBreeze1106d ago

If only the Queen's English was the only thing they were trying to murder.

abzdine1106d ago (Edited 1106d ago )

if you say so Microsoft.. they are very good at words! and even if X1 had the worst online gaming story ever they'd still say opposite.
They for sure won't get the gamers with these cheap words. Fanboys? probably!

Dobgamers1106d ago (Edited 1106d ago )

@Mr_Nuts

No, you're wrong, because when I go to any other forums like Gamespot, Neogaf etc... when they see any microsoft statement they don't "become skeptical", It's only here on N4G like he said.

Oh, before you reply and say that I am an xbox fanboy, no i'm not, i own them both xbox and playstation.

NewMonday1106d ago

I visit Neogaf and other gaming sites regularly, the sentiment is the same everywhere.

n4rc1106d ago

They don't even understand the term fanboy..

Anyone that doesn't hate Microsoft is a fanboy according to them..

Real fanboys are these idiots.. The ones that don't get excited about their product, only bashing competition..

They ignore facts and spread misinformation when they know it isn't true..

But biggest of all.. A fanboy talks shit about a console they have never owned and knows nothing about other then what the read in the comments section.. Because god knows they don't actually read the articles or maybe they'd get their facts straight

InTheLab1106d ago

And you are the first in line to call out these alleged fanboys when you are one of the worst.

How do you know these people don't own an Xbox console?

And it seems like you jump on anyone with a negative opinion of Xbox and immediately call them a fanboy as if your comment history isn't available for all to see.

Criticism =/= hatred
