BOMB: Xbox One OS and Xbox Live issues bouncing about as we approach launch

Pete Dodd:

I’m putting it all out on the line here. I enjoy breaking leaks but if this is wrong I’m fucked. I know this. This is how much I trust the people who have verified (and I hope for a CBoaT appearance).

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. (Xbox One)

Something's up with all these rumors, something in the industry is being covered up and they are playing us like pawns. like adam sessler said "truth to power will win out". ive decided im not going to feed into this rumor (edited my comment), im going to start sending in death threats to everyone in the industry (not really), but im getting pissed now with all this propaganda/rumors.

the first clear sign should have been the lack of 3rd party XB1 game previews, even exclusive marketing games like CoD and PS4 are shown on the PS4 only/first

@Bigpappy

"Very nice. We have quite a lot of anonymous, disloyal Xbox people leaking bad news"

so you would rather consumers were deceived and sold faulty hardware?

yeah i thought so, i said the same thing in the article "IGN former journalist says people complaining about not getting a free ps4 are *****es". sorry cant link it on my vita but its there.

then i take back my edited comment; MS has turned their mess into a ****show and they have no one to blame but themselves. they should have delayed the X1, not doing so has become catastrophic to their position in the gaming industry.

We're only on the edge of the rabbit hole people. According to CBOAT, there is quite a fall and people need to brace for impact. Many people on this site have already stated. Xbox One was suppose to launch in 2014. EsRAM drivers aren't ready, the OS isn't complete, developers haven't much time with the final devkits. With big multiplatform games only being in 720p, MSFT is going to have a hard time convince 360 owners to make the leap.

Just for some clarification, COD SP is 1080p/30fps and multiplayer is 720p/60fps. Titanfall is also running in 720p along with Battlefield 4.

Jeff Gerstmann: Didn’t some French site post a ton of raw, off-screen footage of themselves &#$@ around with a PS4? Could’ve sworn I saw that awhile ago.

Anyway, yeah, they’ve both been a little cagey, I guess. But I feel like I know way more about how the PS4 front-end will look and work, while all the Xbox One dashboard and multitasking footage looks… fake?"

MS have yet to come out and full on deny anything wrong with the console or its services. That speaks volumes and this exact same thing happened before it was spilled that Ghosts is 720p on the Bone.

I just went through and read almost all of the comments on this page and from what I gather, it seems like some people on n4g are more excited to see their opposing console fail, then to actually play the one they've preordered.
JokesOnYou  +   270d ago
Heres why its the ps4 that is the one stumbling into next gen:

Only 1 high profile launch game and its a shooter running on an old engine offers nothing next gen, graphics upgrade cannot run 1080p 60fps whole game and its sonys flagship game WITHOUT DEDICATED SERVERS vs a open world tons of zombies on screen no loading, no streaming, plus a hack n slash @900p with the best next gen graphics and by far the best cinematics in any game launching.

Then we have Driveclub delay but Forza5 looks better and as a sim has more going in regards to tech performance all at 1080p 60fps.

Then we have seen far more about the X1's hardware details with hot chips conferences and other panels talking about the custom design architecture and UI than ps4's? sony lack of details on hardware suggests it off the shelf since they've been pretty hush to say otherwise, sure wasn't hush about the cell/bluray last gen launch.

Then we have seen COD Ghost and BF4 both already running on X1 looking no different than ps4 versions.

Then we've seen X1 at more events not 1 cancellation unlike sony and X1 is in more stores with gamers having hands on while sony has ps4 showcased in controlled sony stores.

All this while having the more robust console that not only is launching standard with a high tech camera but also introducing next gen ideas like cloud computing and is leading with dedicated servers available to all games/Azure.

Now its 2 weeks before ps4 launch micro is still showing more, engaging with the public while we hear of sony not getting ps4 in journos hands setting review restrictions, and just running the same Taco Bell ads a few others but where are the uncontrolled hands on demos of the KZ SF and the system UI at this point?...releasing earlier we should see alot more from sony but we don't.

Only hit for micro is bad PR the system itself has proven over and over again rumors were wrong about die issues, downclocking, fcc certification, no demos, delays, supply and code issues. This latest OS crap will also be next BS rumor proven wrong.

^^^^Its sony who looks far less ready than micro for next gen.^^^^

If you don't work for MS, you should.

Also, just wondering why you mention Killzone running on an old engine and neglect to mention that Forza, Dead Rising, and Ryse were all being developed for the 360 but then ported up to the one so it would have launch games. Its not like they made new engines for those games.

The point of the argument is this, if your using CoD: Ghosts as a basis for defining next gen graphics. Then you are utterly and truly grasping at straws in finding ANYTHING negative Xbox One.

Other games has already put Xbox One as truly next gen from the get; Ryse, DR3 and Forza 5. Then you add on to that third party games that run games equal to if not better than PS4 (gameplay).

The coincidence in the rise of these RUMORS are very suspicious, because they started popping up right after the new release of VGchartz next gen pre orders as of week ending Oct. 19th:

http://www.vgchartz.com/art...

Which CLEARLY shows CoD: Ghosts pre-orders of Xbox One outnumbering PS4 (US).

Remember, these are RUMORS! These are not FACTS!! So I don't see the point in admitting to something that doesn't exist and only an assumption ANYONE can make and be DEAD WRONG. Once this blows over as just rumors, what would have been the point aside from scaring your fanboy sentiments?!

Newmonday... which rumor you going to believe? You believed the one that said MS was paying 3rd parties not to show of the PS4 versions of the game... and not that that's not happening, you believe this.

Do you also believe Proelites news that PSN is having big issues too? And that the PS4 might not even have online play for PSN at launch?

Why aren't those rumors from these same people about the PS4 big news? Is it because it's Sony bad news nobody wants to talk about?

Or because that's FUD?

I'd imagine the Sony fans will say it's FUD.

Edit.. funny how anytime Jokes on YOu or anyone that is a fan of the Xbox... and talks good about it is automatically working for MS. That's so stupid. You can't be an Xbox fan and make pro Xbox statements without that tag. But you can talk up Sony and the games and go off the Richter and nobody bats an eye.. That's just being a fan. The Playstation 4 can't even play movies or blurays out of the box without it's day one patch. But no.. it's not rushed or anything.

@PowerVR.
I like how you brought solid numbers into it. Seeing that cod has 329032 pre orders, that is a clear lead. It accounts for 68% of the totals for launch window fps numbers for the xbox one. Clearlyn cod still reigns strong on ms consoles. Sony on the other hand only has 298180 cod pre orders for the ps4, 52% compared to 3rd party launch window fps games. However, kz:s is also a launch fps and changes the picture. With it, Sony's fps pre order totals = 822101 compared t MS' 482253. Cod now only accounts for 36% of the launch window fps games for ps4. So MS has more cod pre orders, but you have to consider that has something to do with Sony' s base spread across 3 games vs MS with 2. Its good that ms has so many, but there is a logical reason.

If the console comes good people will forget all about any rumoured problems and buy the thing.

If the console is bad then acknowledging it wont accomplish anything.

in previous generations we didn't have things like twitter, facebook, etc.

also something to take note, consoles hardware/software increases in complexity with each generation so more things can go wrong. and let's all be honest here, Microsoft doesn't have the best reputation when it comes to these things (consoles).

Dude, Missing features!? You're grasping at straws
a 300mb patch that enables the feature set for the console isnt adding missing features. again what dont you understand about the Hardware being finalized and in production months before the Software is! thats why the small patch "activates" the features. Lets not forget that The PS4 can still play games and log into the PS store without this patch. You cant even do that on the XBOX One without downloading that UPDATE that turns the console from unusable functioning. and they haven't even fully detailed the full details of that update in itself, and the console is less than one month away from launching.

Yet Sony comes out and details the contents and clarifies that your console will still do what it's main function is which is play games offline and you want to make it seem like PS fans are hypocrites.

The internet doesn't have to sell you lies because microsoft is already doing that and you're just buying 'em right up to.

How many times have they openly confirmed something to be true and later down the line changed it?

Right from the start "The system is built around always online, you can't just take it out with the push of a button". Three days later "The system won't be always online". lol

Ryse is 1080, wait, not anymore. Used games won't work, oh nevermind, they do now..

It's been a constant back and forth with them, and they've been tripping over themselves the whole time. Every time they talk they just end up putting a foot in there mouth, it's like they're not capable of just communicating properly. I'm honestly shocked that so many people follow and defend them with so much blind faith.

At the end of the day though it's just a game console, and they'll each have their dedicated fanbase. The best thing microsoft can probably do at this point is just keep their mouth closed, because nothing they ever say ends up benefiting them.

Regardless of all the rumors and speculation and people pawning off opinions and rumors as facts these machines are about to be released in the wild and people will be getting their hands on 'em soon enough and find out for themselves.

Either way, people on both sides are still gonna have fun playing their games on whichever platform they choose. Game on!

Trust is huge, and I just don't trust Microsoft anymore.

They can still create a good console with great games, but, I still don't trust them.

Sony have been looking after themselves and their shareholders day one, if Sony though that having their console online only would benefit the shareholders and gain them market share, they would do it. They arent out to look after you, that just comes with running a customer centric business, but at the end of the day, its the shareholders that matter and the bottom line.

@falviousuk I don't think anyone is under the illusion that Sony are a bunch of philanthropists, it's pretty obvious that profitability and the shareholders are the priority.

Did you even own a PS2? I highly doubt it as you were probably in nappies. These rumours are all over the Internet and MS had said nothing to it consumer base. I guess that's how much they "care".

Anyways the 360 was released in a vaccuum... i.e no competition for a full year as the PS3 was delayed. The only HD, online console. Yet the PS3 has sold the same worldwide and us still more expensive. More games, better quality exclusives and free online. Not to mention Bluray.

Go but your over priced proprietary Hard drives and pay to access services you already subscribe to... Wake up! I didn't even mention RROD. Plus exclusives are still coming out for the PS3. When was your last 2 on the 360?

There lies the problem with you people. You really believe every rumor concocted on the internet is news. The X1 has not been release yet as far as I am aware.

I think we can safely say with your comment here that it's a case of 3rd comment same shit in this thread. Yea we get it, there are more Sony supporters on this site than MS supporters. That is simply because MS have drilled themselves into the ground.

What you fail to realise is the amount of these so called 'rumours', that have eventually appeared to be true with the XBone. Do you not find any of that disconcerting? Let alone the fact this rumour actually holds some credibility as this guy has a pretty good track record.

I don't see it as a case of wanting a one console entertainment business as we all know competition can be beneficial for the gamer, but i cannot stand MS's stance on this generation, and towards the end of the last gen. They are sly, manipulate the truth, have horrible hardware history with consoles, have horrible paywalls, and don't invest in 1st party development as much as they buy rights for 3rd party games (almost just denying Sony), and even then, don't support the entire stretch of their consoles lifespan (Xbox and 360).

If you don't like the clientele on this site (favouring Sony), then you know where the 'door' is.. Stop moaning about it.

lol I think you'll find that a gaming forum/site that actively allows open free discussion is waaaaay more credible than an anti-sony conspiracy blog run by the dictator 'Misterx' and his band of fake insiders. Think about if any of this was brought up there? There would be no reasoning or even arguing it would be shut down immediately, and that goes for ANYTHING negative Xbox comment.
Xbox fanboys still thrive on Gaf even if public opinion and the way things have evolved this year has led most to 'seem' pro Sony.

You can scream sonygaf from the rafters by all means, doesn't change the fact there are numerous insiders and game developers(the moderators are game devs, some third party too) that post there who have been through the verification process because if you make claims on gaf and can't back it up then your ass gets banned FAST. It would seem obvious that some of them still reside there because their credibility is proven and they have a decent track record, or else they would have been dumped long long ago.
Even 'thuway'(a reputable insider) got temp banned for jumping the gun with a rumoured leak about Thief being 900p on Xbone because he didn't have enough sources. Hell even thuway & proelite are saying Sony is having major OS troubles too, and you know what? I believe them! because it's Sony! which is why it's so much worse for MS, a software designing company, to be screwing up in this area.

The top tier insiders on gaf are also chiming in and are pretty much backing everything up. Why do they leak bad news for MS? because there IS bad news to leak from MS, some people obviously cannot accept this or fathom that Sony was much more prepared for this gen than Microsoft, that's pretty much all it comes down to.

Misterx's blog on the other hand has 0% credibility or any success rate and is still driven by the hopes and dreams of secret sauce. The damage control has actually doubled too because there have been more 'insiders' cropping up over there, and they all say different things(even contradict each other lmfao). Sometimes you just gotta wonder why a deep insider in MS who only spouts good news about massive software and hardware advantages only talks to a random foreign dude on the net who types in broken english(a lot like the insider :x) that creates sometimes illiterate blog posts about sh*tting on Sony and how they 'lie'.

I'd take Gaf over misterx's wet dreams any day.

1. No suspend/resume feature at launch
2. No bluray movie playback at launch
3. Delay of DriveClub
4. No uploading to YouTube at launch
5. Online Multiplayer isn't free anymore
6. Not all headsets will work with the PS4 at launch
7. Not all driving wheels will work with the PS4 at launch

See there are plenty of bad news about the console but none of them are as bad as Microsoft's.

Its not whether bad news is valid for one system or another its how bad the news is that's really important.

Hicken  +   270d ago
I'm curious: why do you never try a rational argument against this stuff?

When any of these rumors pop up, for either system, rational people use actual, available evidence to support or help disprove them. They point to the proven track record of the people breaking the rumors, or existing, consistent evidence to the contrary.

For example, CBOAT and the others leaking the XB1 news have been extremely reliable in the past, and not just for this generation. And despite the rumors of widespread heating and crashing issues for the PS4, only a very small handful of instances have actually been reported.

Why is that, rather than try to use something logical or sensible to break apart the argument, you opt for pure disbelief. For you, it can only be people trying to smear the XB1 and Microsoft. It can only be fanboys making shit up. It's as if the serious, negative rumors that have already turned out to be true don't exist, and there's no way in Hell that any current such rumors could be real, either.

In your mind, at least.

There's a word for that sort of thinking. It gets tossed around a lot on this site, usually incorrectly. But when there's blind following for something, to the point where you deny or outright ignore truth and facts, the word fits.

Fanboy.

"issues about party chat and dropping friends"

HAHAHAHAHA! this is hysterical, this shows who actually plays on XBOX LIVE. If anyone on this site actually played a game, while being in a party chat on XBOX LIVE. Then you would know that issues such as.....

PARTY CHAT and dropping friends, occurs occasionally now on XBOX 360. To try and say it's some new connectivity issue only for XB1 is reaching.
iceman06  +   270d ago
According to "insiders" on GAF, the old version of the Xbox LIVE API was just a simple drag and drop program. However, with Azure, it works differently. Instead of just having the XBL client, there are game specific clients that are running VOI. THIS is the issue. Once again, rumored, but according to them the newer version is more like the PS3 where each and every game has to have VOI programmed specifically for it. They also said that this was an oversight because the programmers that created the new version didn't work for the games section of Azure. It's all speculative, but thought I'd put it out here in response to your XBL comment.
fei-hung  +   270d ago
According to the leak and thread on gaf, the set up on x1 is completely different.

360 worked where one person in a group led. On x1 everyone leads. Meaning if one guy decides to switch from film to game, it will take everyone across.

Second issue is it hasn't been designed by the gaming team and therefore the issues that are causing problems were never thought about.

Thirdly, the 360 ran on 1 OS, the X1 set up has to work on 2 OS and work with the hyper visor and it's complicating things.

All that being said, if you are just playing games on your own, you need not worry.

It definitely looks like the xbone is being rushed, but I personally don't think these rumors are completely true.

These are quite major issues and I highly doubt MS would release the console in such a condition. I know MS are one of the most stubborn and arrogant companies, but even they know they would have to delay the console. And since it's too close to release to delay, I think even if these rumors have some merit, MS will most likely fix the problems with a day one patch.

If things are as bad as rumors such as this would suggest, then the only thing which will either deny or prove them will be day to week one launch.

Though really, what everyone needs to do is stop reacting to "news" like this. Just step back and wait for launch.

@MRMagoo:
One thing I just read from another article suggest that the issue is removal of the original DRM. That it indeed wasn't as easy as flipping a switch.

Though as far as Sony's concerned about all this, don't they have systems out in stores now in displays? Had thought MS had done likewise.

I think its pretty much MS fault , would it take too much for them to confirm or deny the resolution on games and things like that , i mean Sony seems to be having an easy time doing it yet MS dont know what the games on their own consoles are doing.
I can only come to one conclusion and that is MS are hiding for a reason, because they cant come out and say yes the games are 1080p native when launch is so close and they know they will be found lying.

@below unclegermrod

"They wouldnt wreck their image as the leader in online gaming" they dont have the image of online leader the only ppl that think there is a difference when playing online games on the 360 compared to the ps3 are lying.

This new rumor may be true it may not, launch will tell that story but the games performance is a different story, they must be gold by now i would think.

UncleGermrod  +   270d ago
I knew this would come up. I know what they are capable of, but the 360 launch is what leads me to think they would at least learn their lesson with that type of thing. They do not have a 1 year lead as a buffer for all their issues this time. but what i really meant was that i do not see how MS could drop this system with these types of issues (even if it's just a few weeks or so) and expect to remain even close to sony going forth. I know i for one will drive to gamestop in reverse at 4am in a top hat and bang on the glass, and demand they take it back. I will not have ps4 till say, march...so this thing better fucking work brah!!

Well they did knew that 360 had an overheating problem and still released it.
True_Samurai  +   270d ago
That was hardware not software

Now Microsoft messing their os up is something I hardly believe since they're one of the top software companies in the world

No matter if it hardware or software. If it's not ready don't release it. Microsoft have released products that were faulty and they knew it before hand.

Im just not confident in anything they do anymore. For me personally Ive had it with them. I just keep thinking of the huge sale they had on the HD-DVD players right before they announced that HD-DVD were no longer going to be produced! I still dont understand how they didnt catch a lawsuit on that. I had a family member call them and ask for their legal department and his account was immediately suspended! Wish you Xbox guys luck, no one deserves to get screwed when they've paid hard earned money for the console of their choosing. I just wont be in that camp this gen.
badkolo  +   270d ago
screwed like what, like when my ps3 died and i had to pay 200 bucks to get it fixed, you mean screwed like that or screwed like when 2 of my 360's died and ms exchanged them for free.
iceman06  +   270d ago
Did you see how long it took Sony to crawl out of the hole that was a year delayed release and they had a larger consumer base than MS does with the 360. It would have been tough, if not damn near impossible for them to pull off. Having said that, how many companies have you seen that openly state that they are having issues. Transparency is not the high point of many companies...let alone companies that have direct competition releasing with a highly competitive product. That being said, it's only a rumor and should be taken as such until further clarification. It doesn't look good for MS to have all of these rumors floating around, but time will ultimately tell the true story.

They released Windows ME, Vista, and 8. They release broken crap all the time.

Thank you. I bought a new computer this week with Win8 and I don't like it. I got no choice but to get use to it.

No offence, UncleGermrod.....

But I think you are being awfully foolish to be buying an XBONE day 1, or even Month 1 when you know how failure prone XBOX 360s were.
dodo101  +   270d ago
We should see if this true in couple of weeks.
But Since the reveal of the xbone it all been a complete mess!
I really reall really have no fucking idea why people are still playing fanboys and most of them are in complete denial!
Is it really the launch games and xbox live what people are believing in?

Yay, another fanboy rumor!!! So far none of them have been proven, but they still keep coming out. How about this...you were smart for pledging allegiance to Sony from the beginning, you won't have to worry about how much the XB1 is going to suck cause you aren't getting one...let the "retarded" XB1 faboys figure that one out. I mean since you clearly don't "care" about the XB1...you can stop letting yourselves stress about it.
I know that you guys are just being true gamers and looking out for other guys that just want to be "cool" gamers like you and letting them know how stupid they are for liking something different...but you can stop now. Spreading all these fact-less rumors just looks insecure and pathetic...it'd be one thing if ONE of these rumors had some actual fact to support it, but so far being that nothing has been proven and it's all rumors...looks kinda weak. Then when actual Devs say the opposite you guys dismiss it as stupid...it looks kinda odd....how about we just let it all play out and we can make better decision at launch when all the facts are out. You can stop slandering MS now...it just looks like the pathetic bandwagon now.

So far none of them have been debunked by microSoft.
MasterCornholio  +   270d ago
Yep that's realky worrying.

Remember how fast Microsoft debunked the production issues?

Why are they taking forever to debunk the rumors about live and the operating system?

badkolo  +   270d ago
why would they need to debunk every stupid rumor coming out of some turds post with nothing to back it up. my insider just told me that the ps4 crashes 10 times a day and every game has been downgraded. i cant prove it but its a insider rumor, spread it around like its true
Kayant  +   270d ago
The COD is perfectly much confirmed at this point if not they would have debunked it by now. The fact COD was shown on IGN on PS4 considering the long standing deal with COD and Ms or the fact that all new footage of COD as always been on Xbox. BF4 is also likely but its very hard to tell atm.

This i have a hard time believing because OS & online intergation is MS's bread & butter and I don't see how they would have messed that up this badly if true.

Wait Xbox Live.

WTF happened to it being a flawless service made vastly superior because of 300000 dedicated servers?

I actually find this hard to believe because I don't believe that Microsoft is capable of screwing up Xbox Live. On the other hand I can believe the problems with the OS since they ripped out an essential part of it not to long ago (DRM)

For Farrrrkkkkk sake N4G...... Yesterday it was doom for PS4, today doom for XB1 OS...... Ohhh boy!

MS and Sony are launching consoles around the globe in under a month..... Those that think that there will not be teething issues for both are delusional !!!!

Agree there is always teething problems, I will be playing kz4 and bf4 while the teething problems are sorted for both companies.

It's not really an article. It's a damn blogspot post. He's not a journalist, either. He's an insider.

But to hell with that, right?
Kujii  +   270d ago
After reading a few posts from apparent leaks on both sides. I think everyone should prepare to have online problems at launch. If you have pre ordered either console it would probably be best to invest into some SP games that will tide you over for the first couple of days while each company works out teething problems.

Why isn't old crazy nelson debunking any bad xbox news lately? Maybe he's working hard on a resume to hand in to sony.

This guy is a joke. I have yet to see one of his 'leaks' that have ever been proven unless it has been common knowledge prior to him 'leaking' it. Let the consoles come out and prove it.
