Microsoft just released a quite interesting video showcasing the new multiplayer features of xbox one.
The guy with the glasses at the start has an uncomfortable stare
thanks for sharing?
@egg you are very right however.... its a very awkward stare
You think honest gamers who you have played will stop to go and rate everyone? No, the people who you "owned" as well as immature kids will go and downvote everyone for the "lols", that's why a system like that will never work.
Lol.. Yea when he's talking to the girl at the end it keeps panning back to him. The way he's staring looks uncomfortable. Any great features if your an xbox live fan. Gonna be exciting generation for both consoles.
Equating a good reputation to people who want to just be there to have fun is misleading as it really doesn't mean that. It also means that new players, who have a medium reputation, will be matched with more lower rep players who are less likely to improve a gamer's rep than not. Also, it's misleading to think that "dedicated servers" mean less "cheating". Current CoD is on dedicated servers and cheating happens on that all the time.
Current is not on dedicated servers
Private matches are P2P. Other matches on CoDBO2 are on dedicated servers.
And this is why Xbox LIVE will continue to lead the forefront in online gaming on consoles. Can't wait for November 22. We have to pay to play online on PS4 now yet we have yet to see or hear why. What features, improvements, etc has Sony made to PSN that we need to pay to play online now in a comparable price to Xbox LIVE? That's what I really want to know. I know PS+ offers rewards, discounts, early access to stuff, and free games but I honestly don't care about any of that. Chances are if its hot, I bought the game anyway. Not interested in a glorified reward system. I know theres cross game chat this time but thats all I know. Has voice codec improved audio quality? What about matchmaking? Dedicated servers? Etc etc. Come on Sony
Everyone know's PS+ is 10000X better then Xbox Live. You get free indie games. Who wouldn't want to play a game that some guy made in his basement? Playstation online in general is 100000X better because you can use Netflix to watch terrible old movies without needed PS+. See? Isn't PS+ better?
Ha..Blaze you answered your own question with things you don't care about,but millions of others do.Here is the Blaze way of asking a question.What makes the PS3 a better gaming system then the 360.And don't say exclusive game support because I don't care about exclusive games.A very tricky but silly way to ask questions.Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians today!
great video showing what to expect with the new xbox dashboard. just today i was wondering when they were going to release this. one feature i am really excited for when i do purchase one is the smart match bye bye annoying screaming kids.
I like the smart-match and the reputation system.
Smart match seems pretty cool. Definitely a step up.
That fake smile towards the end lol. Everyone interviewed looked miserable. They also looked under duress by MS.
nice one ms....nice one.
love it...Still dont care much for the DVR stuff.
I wonder how there working the pings for the dedis compared to country's. Say I'm in the UK playing someone from the states where will the dedi be based that is being shared over the cloud. Hence if its US side will i have a 150+ ping making the game unplayable for me are if its UK side will the game be unplayable for the US player, those closest to the server get best ping. They still haven't explained this in competitive play on the PC we pick a midway server so each player takes a mid range ping both players will come in with around a 80 ping given the servers hosted in the right place. If this is not taken into consideration you will have a lot off unfair games online. End off the day your only as good as the ping you can achieve online.
Reputation system is terrible...everyone is offended by different things...be it racism, sexism, fat jokes...sounds like garbage online gaming...if you can't handle all these things you shouldn't be using chat....or really on the internet at all....the internet was made for porn and trolling
But you are missing the point. If you don't mind all those things you will be grouped with people that feel the same. While others and myself now don't have to deal with you. See it's win win.
My point isthat their are to many tthins that offend everyone...everyone will downvote everyone for something that offends them specifically... You may be democrat and I may be republican and get downvoted for crap talking obama...and end up playing with racists and 10 year olds.
Dhampie you are still missing the point not everything is a down vote. Smack talking is not down voting someone. Now a 10 year old yelling on a microphone yelling racist remarks is not the same thing as some one smack talking during a game.
... edited away ...
I agree, the reputation system is flawed. If you drive backwards, you should get negative rep. But if you dominating online and your just really good at a game, people will hate on you and give you negative rep too. So the person who drives backwards and the person who dominates will be matched together...makes perfect sense **sarcasm**
Neither XBL or PSN list you as good or bad. It is a complicated system that looks at smack talking and performance/skill level. The only place you see the good or bad is in the front end of the system to give players a simple overview.
Great walk though with clear and useful info. Theses are the kind of things MS needs to do more of. Now waiting for the Sony vid about the OS coming out soon :)
Did I understand it correctly that if you download Forza to your hard drive, then go to a friends house, you can play the game on their Xbox as long as your signed in to your profile? And access saves? If that's right, that's an awesome feature. But I'm sure I misheard it.
Where have you been the last 6 months? That's exactly what you can do.
I'm sure the new reputation system is already broken. What's to stop "jerks" from just creating a new gamertag when their reputation gets bad enough; they already do this. "So I'm not going to be able to blame getting beaten on by host advantage anymore?!" ... True, instead you'll get beaten into the ground by everyone with a shitty connection. #lag compensation I am not loyal to one console or another, but how can anyone continue to defend microsoft at this point?
