The Xbox One's online service will offer players a more dynamic and malleable experience, including features for screening other players and sharing content among members of the same household.
The follower reputation system is a great idea. It allows you to follow everything that the ever self-important Major Nelson is doing...
I agree, I have never really got into twitter (this is kinda how I see it) however in a gaming context this is awesome, being able to follow the likes of Justin Wong and seeing his million hit Killer Instinct combo's from the dash will be pure awesomeness!
at a fraction of a price ??
"Xbox One promises feature rich Live service." Yeah but... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
This is a much more fitting video: http://www.youtube.com/watc... It's feature rich because you're paying for 95% of FREE features. - @ DragonKnight Haha. Agreed. That should be the Xbone startup screen.
Yeah I saw that one. I chose the video I did because the laugh is incomparable and yet appropriate, as is the message behind the theme.
You mean features that you have to pay for to use that can be used for free on your computer, cell phone, tablet, and every other device?
dont forget you also get to pay to watch and see advertisements
making an already great service even greater...damn..xbx live alone is a good enough reason to invest in the console.
Already good service? If XBL is so great that I have to pay 60 dollars a year, then why does Halo Reach still lag online when it comes to playing co op campaign? When I used to own my PS3, I remember playing through the campaign of Resistance 3 with some random guy online, and it never had any lag whatsoever. Why is it that a company like Sony is able to provide a valid experience for free, while Microsoft can't do the same, yet I have to pay 60bucks for their service? Hmmm...
i guess the millions of xbx live users would beg to differ..we get the value of our money in the service we use...and mind you ive used both sony amd ms services and i must say..i ended up sticking to xbx live ..its great and thats the simple truth..i dont know how else to explain it but you could read up about the service and that of sonys on the net..tired of explaining the differences..but then again why do you guys always have issues with other peoples preferences and opinions? just asking..
well I have issues because you guys set the precedent for paying to play online with the 360. If you guys had any kind of back bone and said hell no, you most likely still would have gotten cross chat and online play for free. But all you 360 supporters were so quick to bend over and throw your money at MS. Now there is no going back, so thanks for that. They even increased the price and you guys still smile and pull out your wallet like a puppet. So yes, your preferences has affected me.
dude i dont get you at all..you blame us for your unhapiness..dude get a life..and if paying for xbx live makes us boneless then i must say im glad to be a part of a happy and merry boneless community cos we love the service and the cash we pay seems to be put into good use..come next gen we the boneless ones will joyfully pay again just like you will be doing with your console too...if you still got any problems with my opinions i guess you will have to deal with it from your ends..and it seems your trolling now dude..and iv got a zero tolerance policy to that so learn to deal properly with peoples opinions ok.....chris out.
The point here is that, you can give me all the information and tech-talk about how Microsoft has a better service than Sony, but the problem here is that I (as well as many others) didn't experience that. I bought a 360 for playing the Halo series. I wanted to play the co op campaign with different players and I couldn't because it kept lagging. Thats really scary because I paid money to use the service. If Microsoft had such a great online service, then why are people still having legitimate problems? You see, that's the problem. When people say things like "Microsoft's online service is already great!", it makes my ears bleed. Because I felt ripped off as a consumer. The truth of the matter is that XBL is overrated, and nowhere near as good as people say it is. I have experienced that first hand
i dont know what to say...i cant apologise for your experiences with the service cos all my pals and i have a blast using xbx live you happen to be part of the few who have had issues with the service..its growing daily and ms keep improving it..if something was that bad you,d expect the momentum to reduce but its increasing yearly and its cos people actually like the service....anyways all the best..
Let's be realistic Xbl is pretty much a rip off and way behind of what psn offers big time. say all u want but the truth is Xbl is a rip off and psn is much more worth 4 ur bucks then Xbl and like people say u get what u pay with psn but hell no with Xbl. I could explain y psn is better then Xbl but I'll just tell u to read and watch YouTube videos of the differences between psn 50$ a year and Xbl rip off 60$ a year.
You can say what you want about the quality of the service, but to say that Live alone is good enough reason is pure BS. I say this because XBL Gold is one of the biggest rip-offs/scams in the history of gaming, and this isn't just an opinion. 95% of the features you get that are behind a paywall are FREE everywhere else. I understand you like the service, but like people have already said, your choice to support Microsoft over the years for Peer 2 Peer connectivity has been nothing but a detriment to the rest of the industry, and provided a green light for Microsoft to do what they want to get more dollar, without a second thought towards the consumer or the gamer. Their anti-consumer plans with the Xbone says it all. You guys even allowed them to raise the price by $10 a few years back for no tangible benefits whatsoever. Would you pay for air to breathe if Microsoft told you it was the best and most pure air you'd ever breathe?
