Phil Spencer on OS & XBL issue: "We are playing SP & MP nightly. Anyone can post 'stuff' to the web"

Xbox One launch is shaping up to be a disaster soon as rumors of the OS being broken and Xbox Live stability issues are appearing all over the internet. Microsoft's Phil Spencer denies these claims. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

Of Course..
he's going to deny it. Just like he denied the esRAM issues that were being had. With less than 3 weeks to go until PS4 launch, let's hope CBOAT keeps quiet until then.

well, thats one way to not answer a question. would have much rather preferred "there is no problems with the X1 OS" or "thoes rumors are false", anything other than mentioning something unrelated and a indirect response to the actual proposed issue. i hope they eventually bring closure to this, everything including their behavior points to it being true, as well as the resolution issues.

his response is like me asking a NASCAR driver: 'are rumors true that are saying the interior of your car looks like crap and nothing is working properly?' driver: "well im driving it nightly, people can say whatever they want". cool, thanks for answering my question...

@bitbydeath... dude THANK YOU for that link

I've never laughed so hard.. Phil bailed when questioned about the actual os... especially when the dude said if anyone tried to get into the os at the demo kiosk they were booted off the machines..

oh man this has to be the worst unveiling, launch and PR of any console ever..
PoSTedUP  +   322d ago
the smartest thing for them to say is "the X1's OS will be ready at launch". not clearing up such a bad rumor only makes it worse. the truth hurts, but not as much as avoiding it or being caught in a lie.

sorry, I am not seeing how Phil bailed with his tail between his legs.

Is that some special Sony fanboy talent that you have that is required before I can see it?

Looking forward to the launch of PS4 and XBO.

At least in practice we will see which platform innovates, which has the most fun games and which platform is prone to overheating and overhating.

This is only a precursor.
let the real games begin....

@Death: The video you posted shows the UI and a game playing offline. Don't you ind that kind of odd considering the console was touted as an always on machine? The issue isn't when you try to play games or getting to the UI; it's network connectivity as it relates to VOIP and OS-related online features. Basically in a nutshell, XBL isn't playing nice with X1. It's ironic really that the reasons that PS3 users sort of had to shut up when talking about online features now applies to the X1.
JokesOnYou  +   322d ago | Well said
Yep anybody can write on the internet if anybodys behind its sony heres why:
 

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.^^^^

Xbox One kiosk don't "kick you off" for trying to access the OS.

The guy has to a full of sh1t fanboy to make things like that up,

I tried. And yeah, the Dev kits don't have much OS on them. You cant go to try to login, cause they don't allow that.

But that's because the demo kits literally don't have te full OS.
Biggest  +   322d ago
Phil Spencer was asked about the OS and his response was:

There are a ton of videos of games running. The Ryse vidoc from last week... We have SUVs driving around with playables etc.

To which you, BattleTorn, reply that the SUV demo kits don't have the OS. What are you defending here? You can't be defending Phil Spencer. He said that the OS is viewable at the SUV demos. You say that the SUV demos don't have the OS. The question still remains. Where is the OS?
jut420  +   322d ago
@ that youtube OS video

that video doesn't actually show anything in the OS working only the ability to boot a game and back out to the Dashboard. The problem with the OS is all the apps aren't functional which is probably what he was talking about when he said it was buggy. Good way to dance around the question while making it sound things are ok by Spencer.

I'm sure they are playing SP and MP lightly but that's probably all their able to do instead of having features with the OS working with the game.

I get a headache everytime i hear about an OS issue bullshit Both PS4 and XboxONe are running right now on old codes .There's a reason why they both will have day one patches and why your console should always have an online source . MS changes and updates his UI on the regular while Sony patches theirs box almost every month.it's nothing new and not news worthy .if you have an old gen console you should be use to these things . Freeezes,reboots and resets won't go away because you changed your consoles .

This comment on the article:

The Sony Droid army is just pulling out all the stops now. I guess its less than a month away when every one lifts up the Ps4 skirt and realize its not carved fro gods toe nail. You know its only launching with 2 major exclusive games made for it.

Now all of a sudden XBL doesnt work,come on. To top it of we have a major figure from MS saying there is no issues. In the real world i will be going with the word of a officer of the company.

In the Sony Circle Jerk they listen to any random village idiot as long as his comment is negative of the X1. And they treated like prophets as they all gather around in the sony circle jerk and handle each other.

Funny thing you got some clown on Twiiter trying to heckle the a high up official then he clowns him. Ryse looks so good they just can believe it is running on real consoles.
-END COMMENT-

-Get real people, I'm getting the PS4 but come on, this is pretty sad. If the "PS4 is really so much better and will outsell the Xbox One by such a large margin" then why are all of these RUMOURS coming out of nowhere.

Microsoft bans consoles for accessing games early. You don't think they would notice XBox Ones hit the online service that aren't registered for online use? I'm not sure how much I can disclose, but Microsoft does not allow early access to Live on any console unless it's pre-authorized.

I guess the best way to respond is no, I don't think it's odd we haven't seen footage of Xbox Ones on Live. The consoles online to this point are under heavy NDA. What we have seen in the vids to this point are children of people under NDA that are getting in a lot of trouble.

- Xbox One SKU without Kinect in March / April 2014 MAYBE
- Exclusive Xbox One title made by Platinum Games to be shown NOT YET / FALSE
- Microsoft will talk about DRM at GamesCom. There will never be a "rental" strategy. FALSE
- DRM plans are actually worse than what they've [MS] stated. FALSE

Prior E3:

- Mirror's Edge 2 at MS conference. FALSE
- Prince of Persia (reboot?) at MS conference. FALSE
- Dead Rising 3, and exclusive DLC for another Capcom game at MS conference. 1st half RIGHT, 2nd half wrong
- No online paywall for PS4. Unconfirmed. FALSE
- No DRM info for PS4. FALSE

Somewhere in between:

- Xbox One will see a downclocking FALSE
Kayant  +   322d ago
- "No online paywall for PS4. Unconfirmed. FALSE" Obvousily that's false that said he didn't know anything about online paywall.

- "No DRM info for PS4. FALSE" - There was that #DRM campaign which made Sony decide to highlight DRM stuff in the E3 conference. There's also the fact like above he is just stating that he has no info about DRM on PS4.

These are things he has got right/partially right so far.

That's great, thank you.
CBOAT has been lauded as an unassaillable prodigy of truth on the neogaf (Sonygaf?) phenomenon.

In truth, he gets it right about 50% of the time which is the same as VG chartz and Pachter and many other 'reputable' sources.

It reminds me of the old saying 'even a broken clock gets it right twice a day'.

In fact he gets it right about as much as tossing a coin for heads or tails.

With odds like these he should be a stock broker...

It's disturbing how many users on neogaf (sonygaf?) and n4g proudly proclaim his successful predictions, while completely disregarding his concurrent failure predictions.

This is a feature of modern economic and financial behavioural theory:

Off of your list and Kayants, Cboat has been correct 18 times vs the 11 times he was wrong according to your list.Thats a 62% average meaning he is getting most of his predictions right. Now if we look a little deeper into your list its easy to tell you are taking predictions out of context.

For example your fourth one under the Prior GamesCom/TGS column stating quote:
- Microsoft will talk about DRM at GamesCom. There will never be a "rental" strategy. FALSE
Ignoring that Microsoft ditched DRM plans after the huge consumer backlash.
Your fifth claim under that column is also fishy since you don't go into detail of how that was wrong.
As for your Prior E3 column there is even more half truths like this one.
- No DRM info for PS4. FALSE
This implies that there was no info for Drm for the PS4 when in fact that original post from Cboat states : ^_^ sonty rapped up tighterrea than Virgin mosquito when on drm istuf. Frustartin!g myinfogloves!
Translation: He could not get any info on the PS4 DRM info no that there wasn't any

Think about that.

Perhaps you could compile a list of all CBOAT's precictions on 1-2 year's time and we can then use his confirmed track record in analysis of future industry predictions.

At present, CBOAT's stats are none too good, for a self proclaimed insider that has no track record. even in the future, we would need to scrutinise his performance in much the same way that Maddoff's performance was not scrutinised, unfortunately.

There's a lesson in that.

Good stuff Dirty dont forget about the "yeild issues" and "downclock" BS. Also for those saying hes right "sometimes" how stupid is that #1 yeah understandably anybody could be wrong because companys make changes to plans but for a so called "microsoft insider" should be spot on almost everytime....with his record 25% of the folks on n4g are insiders too. #2 The things he gets right are vague common sense predictions that will most likely happen if you follow gaming and have just a bit of deductive reasoning skills. Hell heres how it goes both consoles will launch with OS and game bugs and glitches that require patches. Both will have launch day problems for some trying to connect. Both will have some surprise features we didnt expect or that work differently than 1st thought.= Now write that in half azz cryptic lingo= BAM! Im Nostradamus.

Somewhere in between:

CBOAT never mentioned about downclocking. It's cam right from MS mouth. You remember that MS was said that bandwith is 204 GB/s, a this happened :

http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...

Suddenly 192 GB/s. And those who know about RAM and bandwith technology with simple math came to downclock.

- PS4 will launch in late October FALSE
No online paywall for PS4. Unconfirmed. FALSE
- No DRM info for PS4. FALSE

CBOAT said before that he is not Sony insider.

Have you consider that MS does not need to download Day One patch to remove DRM from XO? XO OS is unstable because removing DRM. But DRM is very deep in XO system and it will be hard to remove that thing. Maybe MS will not be able to remove DRM entirely.

@JokesOnYou

The yield issues are real expect you want to them me how they can go from 23 countries pre DRM to 13 after their 180s. This obviously means that they knew demand was not going to be that high with their initial policies which is why they launched in so more countries to gather good sales but suddenly after removing all their policies (No DRM/kinect required) with 3x the interest they obviously cannot meet demand now.

The evidence is there with the PS4 having a bigger interest & more demand they are able to launch in more countries(32).

Expect you have an explanation as to why MS scaled back from 23 to 13.

The downclocks were obviously wrong.

Also how is he a Sony fanboy when most if not all is info on PS has been wrong but his info on MS has been right often.

This isn't a PS4vsOne thing, and I sincerly hope they get things running smoothly for the One before launch for all the Xbox users. I'm starting to wonder if MS announced the XOne to soon to try to keep pace with Sony.
Sadly in this day and age a new peice of Tech always launches with issues. What the hell is going on with MS and Sony??? SNES,Genesis,PS1,PS2,Xbox all those older systems launched just fine, but now we need day one patches for EVERYTHING, even our brand new next-gen systems.

I physically played for over 4hours on the Xbox One last Friday. While I can't comment on Xbox live, I can say that out of 9 Xbox's that I played on, all booted into the OS and back to the game without a glitch. I saw people pissing around with menus and trying to get into every screen much to the annoyance of the reps. All real xbox's, all real games, all real fun (except zoo tycoon).

I came away VERY impressed and totally confident in the ability of 'The One'.

So an internet rumor pops up from unnamed sources and a direct MS representative shoots them down as false and N4G claims they don't believe MS and of course they would deny it.

And yet N4G always are the first to demand MS make a statement to other rumors from unnamed sources....Why?

When none of you will believe anything MS says. This is the true "SMH" moment I find with these comments from sony fanboys.

"And yet N4G always are the first to demand MS make a statement to other rumors from unnamed sources....Why?"

I guess MS fanboys are just perfectly happy to bend over and blindly accept anything MS offers then, eh?

But I don't know if you noticed, but it appears it was an xbox fan demanding answers. N4G are just posting the story.

And I guess you have very bad reading comprehension because Phil did NOT debunk these rumors. He only mentioned the games were running fine, but the issues were the OS and some of the online interactivity, which he completely skipped.

It seems like every time you open your mouth to defend MS you say something stupid.

Yesterday I honestly though these rumors weren't true. Now after Phil has skipped the question and bailed when the questions got even more tough, I think there might be some truth to it.

I feel bad for anyone that had a good thorough look at all the facts and came to the objective conclusion that the xbone is right for them. I don't feel bad for you though.

What are you going to do if all these bad rumors are true? Keep blindly defending MS I presume?

They are sticking to their word.. No disclosure on 3rd party games

Even when this rumor first hit, they stayed quiet while other Deva came out and said their x1 games are at 1080..

I know my view might not be the best route.. But I feel they don't need to dignify these stupid rumors with a response

Edit for below..

Your twisting facts... He was told HE didn't need to know by his 3rd party manager.. Penello never said that to the public.

"I know my view might not be the best route"

I'll say! How easy would it be to debunk this via twitter with actual concise wording that addresses the concerns? Not long, they've been using twitter to provide info or gloat features or game announcements ever since May.

I agree they don't want to dignify EVERY rumour with an answer but the reses of games and OS issues are pretty big 'rumours', which are consequently causing more ill thinking. Why would they want to suffer more 'negative opinion' on top of what they already have experienced? That makes literally no sense what so ever.
"Xbox, are such & such 720p? Because that's not ideal :(.
Consumer, no need to worry that rumour is false, the games are confirmed native 1080 :)!"

They either 'don't know' or don't want to say. Either way it just indirectly confirms concerns.

Take the Driveclub delay rumour, Sony said nothing on the issue, the dev 'Rushy' said he 'didn't know' and it ended up being true and Sony came out and confirmed it not long after. Ironic actually because the same dude who leaked the OS issues is the same dude who confirmed the Driveclub delay ;) and I bet you believed that one.

People are also claiming Sony are having OS issues from the same sources, and I believe those too.

The COD rumour can go 2 ways

-It's true, the game runs at 720p.
Microsoft confirm it, the internet runs wild with confirmation that the PS4 has the best COD and the news may even reach people that play COD (that "non-core gamer" Rubin talks about).

-It's false, the game runs at 1080p
Microsoft confirm it, a few 'insiders' go quiet for a couple of minutes before finding something else to speculate on.

It is quite possible the rumour is accurate, it's come from numerous sources hasn't it? But the way I see it they're better off keeping quiet in either case, unless the rumour threatens to hit a bigger audience than the confirmation would.
black0o  +   322d ago
it's more like 1st scenario i guess or MS is hopping for IW to improve it to 900p or get it to 1080p
abc1233  +   322d ago
No it's not best if they keep quiet in the second scenario. If these people are making stuff up then MS keeping quiet isn't going to stop them making something else up in the meantime. MS is allowing Sony to score some PR points which is stupid. Its very likely now that COD's resolution is lower on the X1 but they're still trying to improve it before launch.

Tired and worn out argument/complaint.

If you are paying to play online on either console a pay wall doesn't exist. If you only want to play online with your friends on PS4 and didn't see the value of Plus, the only thing you get with your $50 is online multiplayer unlocked. Everything else is "free", but you pay $50. The only thing behind the "paywall" is online play. It was free for over a decade, but now it's $50.

On Xbox One if you want to play online it is $60. With that you get all the bs that is "free" on the PS4. If you are an online gamer and subscribe to the service you get much more than online unlocked.

I'm fairly certain free access to Netflix isn't going to sway people over to the PS4, but if that helps you sleep at night I guess there is no harm in it.
Stick89  +   322d ago
Considering of course that the PS3 is one of the most widely used Netflix streaming devices.

http://www.ign.com/articles...

I think that is a huge point in PS4's favor.
Death  +   322d ago
That was a year ago. Smart TV's are saturating the market very quickly and Netflix is easily accessed straight from those tvs. Just about every Blu-ray player and new DVD player have the same functions. You can get a Roku player for under $50 that does it too.

How many people do you honestly think have high speed internet, an HDTV, are buying a new console at launch and don't plan on subscribing to either service? You think there are many hardcore early adopters that don't play online do you?
Stick89  +   322d ago
"one of the most" and yes I do realize the article is a year old. It doesn't make what I said any less true.

To counter your point earlier though, a paywall does still exist. Believe it or not there are people out there who couldn't care less about multiplayer gaming but would like to be able to access other online features a console has such as netflix or game streaming.

""one of the most" and yes I do realize the article is a year old. It doesn't make what I said any less true."

- No, but it does make it less relevant.

"To counter your point earlier though, a paywall does still exist. Believe it or not there are people out there who couldn't care less about multiplayer gaming but would like to be able to access other online features a console has such as netflix or game streaming."

- And many of those people are simply going to watch Netflix on other devices, like PC's and the ones mentioned above. I have been subscribed to XBL since the original xbox, and I never utilize any of the apps, like Netflix, or the radio streaming apps or anything else - I use my PC for all of that. Even full movies both downloaded and played from my blu-ray drive, are played on my PC and watched on my TV.

And before you go into the impracticality of using your PC for all these things, do a Google search for "HTPC."

Things can no doubt go wrong during a build up to launch...that's why it's an R&D phase...thinking that Sony has no hiccups is just as dumb. Other than the Sony fanboy trolls that WANT MS to fail with the XB1...everyone else sees that the trolls are just trolls, and if there are no issues...after the system launches...what will it matter??? Watch...ironically all these issues happen on PS4...that'd be hillarious. The only thing that is annoying about this is how ignorant and hypocritical our younger generations keep proving themselves to be. Factless rumor based on incomplete information from a nameless souce....FACT!!! As long as it makes PS4 look good and XB1 look bad....An actual Dev/Exec says something good about XB1 or bad about PS4 (or that they are just similar) "they don't know what they are talking about, of course they would say that...it's a cover up" It's so pathetic...it's scary that these kids will vote someday.

There are too many rumors for MS to clarify each one. Most of these lies are made up by people who really want to see the X1 fail. There are too many "insiders" who claim things and can't prove it. If they were really "insiders" the would have more concrete proof. Most of the videos I've seen of the X1 look great. But MS will still be working out kinks nonstop up until launch. I honestly didn't think that Battlefield 3 would be ready when it released based on all the glitches on the beta but they pushed hard and got it done. Rockstar is still working out GTA 5 issues online. That's how it goes. Sony has their own issues too I'm sure. MS has almost a month left to go and plenty of resources. They'll quadruple their workforce if they have to. Now it's too late to make most people who preordered a X1 or PS4 back out now. But look at how desperate fanboys can get.

Once again, these two guys post rumors to offset anything negative about Sony...yes there has been a trend. I bet at best, both of them are GameStop employees.

If there is a rumor, there is no need to defend yourself against a rumor. I know I wouldnt respond to it..cause all it does is feed the trolls who then twist the words you have given, so why give yourself a headache over it.

You would never buy any smart phones, computers, or consoles if you saw what is happening in the background to make them work.

Why do you think that every X1 and PS4 are slated for day one firmware updates? These companies will work until a day or two before the actual release to squash every bug and issue possible. And then they will continue squashing bugs and issues for at least 3-6 months after release.

To me, this shows that MS is not satisfied with XBL success to date and they are pushing to the next level.
Gamer666  +   322d ago
You have to be nice to Sony fanboys. Since they are just getting re-releases of PC indie titles, a bunch of multi-platform releases, and Killzone, Knack, and Resogun as their only true launch exclusives they have nothing better to do than surf the net and jump into Xbox news articles and try and raise fear, uncertainty, and doubt.

Meanwhile X1 buyers will be experiencing the many exclusive games of DR3, Forza 5, Ryse, Lococycle, Crimson Dragon, Fighter Within, and Killer Instinct 3 as their launch exclusives.

Really it is quite sad... Seeing them so passionate that their purchase is the only one that could possibly make sense. I don't know what Sony does to brainwash the Sony Nation but it is very effective.

And before people go and call me an X1 fanboy... I buy every console and play the games on them... I have no loyalty. I just like to play great new games. Of which Sony is really lacking at launch.

My gosh. MS fanboys like you are the absolute worst. Don't kid yourself that just because you're getting all consoles you're not.

Don't know if you realise, but there's this little thing called 'the next few years after launch'. I find it quite pathetic how so many MS fanboys focus on the launch games when they literally account for less than 1% of the games that are going to be released in the consoles lifetime.

I'm still going to have plenty of true, quality exclusives to play at launch, but I'm also going to have many more after launch.

I can't say the say thing about the xbone. MSs track record says they will abandon the core customers halfway through the generation.

I guess when ms fanboys finally get some exclusives it's such a rare event thy want to shout it from the roof tops.

I find it truly amazing that anyone could blindly defend MS after trying to destroy console gaming with DRM. I guess some people just have absolutely no standards.
Gamer666  +   321d ago
@jessupj

Why wouldn't I get a PS4? I am a gamer. I will still enjoy Killzone, Knack, and Resogun... I won't bother with the indie ports because I've already played most of them on PC.

As for the DRM thing. We are already seeing MS was on the right track. While music and video enthusiasts have adopted DRM to the max, and Steam has had DRM since inception, console gamers seem to think this is an unviable, foreign concept. By the end of this generation anti-DRM folks will look like fools.

As for abandonment. Sony abandons gamers at generation starts and comes like a knight in shining armor midway through. MS starts the generation and continues steadily from there. Sony's launch lineup is Dead on Arrvial. And Sony is already up to their old tricks of "stringing" gamers along with the delay of DriveClub. Remember, way back in 2003 before this last gen started and they showed the awesome graphics that would launch with the PS3 on Killzone 2? Then, it got delayed, and delayed, and delayed... By the time it launched Killzone 2 was on par with Halo 3 and CoD... It is a sad, sorry, story they constantly tell and blind the Sony Nation with. By the way, how is Last Guardian doing? Oh yeah that one has been delayed for what; 5 years now?

Exclusives are rare for XB? MS' console is a year older than PS3, so while the perception is they are shipping less when you align console years and game IPs they are fairly equal...

Sony had Unchartered, XB had Gears of War, Sony had God of War, XB had Alan Wake, Sony had Killzone, XB had Halo, Sony had No Ni Kuni, XB had Lost Odyssey, Sony had inFamous, XB had Crackdown, Sony had GT, XB had Forza, Sony also had Last of Us, Ratchet/Clank, etc. but XB had games like Project Gotham Racing, Blue Dragon, etc. as well. And so it goes... Sony fanboys believe XB owners starved last gen, while in reality they enjoyed just as many new and quality IPs as Sony fanboys.

And lets talk about company morales for a sec... X360 had RRoD. MS fixed/replaced those consoles no questions asked for a cost of $1.1 billion dollars off their profits they reaped from gamers. That is customer service. I had to RRoD's, sent both back in a white coffin and they were fixed in 5 days. Then, Sony promises the moon and keeps moving or taking it away... Home was going to be the future of social networking, dual-boot was a required feature but got removed, they abandoned BC after just a year, only to start re-releasing collections of old games as new games on the PS3... And remember the 3 weeks every Sony gamer spent without PSN? No wonder they don't want an online console, Sony can't keep their network consistently up for the whole generation.

You have to realize that they are two different companies with two different styles. While Sony fanboys don't look out and see the whole world like people in the 18th century thought the world was flat, XB, PC, and Nintendo gamers don't care... They buy games and consoles of all types because they care more for the games than the console's brand.
