Forza 5 Only Xbox One Title Using Dedicated Servers

James Black of SpawnFirst writes: "When Microsoft pitched all of the Xbox One’s features way back in October, one of the major selling points that accompanied the system was the promise of free dedicated servers and cloud processing for all Xbox One games that would have some sort of multiplayer functionality...However, with the eventual launch of the Xbox One, eagle-eyed users of NeoGaf began to notice the distinct lack of dedicated server support in a variety of games."

MS lied again. Shocked!/s Then again, MS broke Xbox sales records after saying "DRM is good, sike". Xbox fans actually defended MS DRM plans./sad

ThePope950d ago

Your one bubble, doesn't defend poor grammar!

stuna1950d ago

@ThePope

But that still doesn't dispute the "NatureOfHisLogic"!

TheFanboySlayer950d ago

Well I dont think they lied...it is possible but idk it is up to the publishers I guess. But if no one is using the 300000 servers then thats a huuuuge waste -__-

brich233950d ago (Edited 950d ago )

They lied. They even lied about 360 cod getting dedicated servers.

dsswoosh950d ago

Neogaf wrote the article.

It must be true.

*rolleyes*

shoddy949d ago

I trust neogaf more than MS

Christopher949d ago (Edited 949d ago )

Yeah, I don't think this is true at all.

Battlefield sure ain't using em

KRUSSIDULL950d ago

They are using EA's own but look at that not always good.

Pascalini950d ago

Companies have the choice

Cod etc uses it's own servers

How is this not obvious to people in the industry?

Just delete this article and move on

mikeslemonade950d ago (Edited 950d ago )

Samething as PS4. Companies have the choice.

kickerz950d ago (Edited 950d ago )

So companies have a choice to use Sonys own 300 000 servers ? Man this is news to me :S

Evilsnuggle949d ago

Kickerz@
Well yes SONY has more than 300000 servers. More of m$ propaganda And spin. Xboiz thing that m$ invented and owns every dedicated server In the gaming world. SONY has a partnership with Rackspace to provide dedicated servers to SONY. So yes PS4 and SONY as have dedicated servers.

"Just delete this article and move on"

That's usually the attitude you people have when something you have been shouting from the high heavens gets proven wrong....."delete the article, nothing to see here". So many times ive seen you people say something like "XBL on X1 is superior because of dedicated servers!"...."300,00 0 servers!"....."PSN SUCKS!".

Humble pie indeed. Just the usual lies and deceit from MS.

@Cueil "if a company choses not to use the free dedicated servers Microsoft offers then that's on them..."

I agree, but MS promised their customers dedicated serves for EVERY X1 game with MP functionality....they lied.

Cueil950d ago

if a company choses not to use the free dedicated servers Microsoft offers then that's on them... EA, Activision, and 2K are jokers who use their own crappy servers

DanielGearSolid950d ago (Edited 950d ago )

"Lying to the customer" ?

Are u kidding me?

Are you insinuating that theres a person out there playing COD that feels betrayed because he got 10 kills and 15 deaths on Activision server rather than a MS server?

Edit: Replied to wrong comment

jackanderson1985950d ago

can you provide a story that has a direct quote from MS saying that every game will have dedicated servers? i remember them saying they'll have 300k available for all games but not the actual promise that everyone will

GarrusVakarian950d ago (Edited 950d ago )

@jackanderson

As a matter of fact i can!

http://www.gameinformer.com...

""Can you confirm if the free Xbox compute resources includes dedicated servers for all Xbox One games?""

"To the question, Penello answered, simply, "yes."

I don't know about you but where im from, that's called a lie.

jackanderson1985950d ago (Edited 950d ago )

that just says that they have the resources available... it's up to the publishers and the devs to actually take them up on the offer... can't force it on a major third party

the dedicated servers come in with the buy in for the Xbox Live Compute ( http://news.xbox.com/2013/1... ) doesn't mean they're enforcing it for every game they're just offering them with the XLC

Karpetburnz949d ago

This is ownage to the hardcore Xboners, remember when they all said "XBL will be waaaaaay better because we will have dedicated servers for EVERY game" but the reality is its up to the developers to use it, and obviously many third party devs wont be using Microsofts servers because they will have multiple systems to develop for.

Except that's still funny , i could swear i saw some radical xb1 fans claim they had a better experience and service , in games like cod , unlike the so called "hybrid" for the ps4 .

Hell i can even drop one name , Nukeitall .

But of course let's conveniently sweep everyone's misconception and mistakes Under the rug

Volkama949d ago

I don't see any citation that confirms COD:Ghosts in not using Live's servers. Just Neogaf speculation.

I mention Ghosts because MS and Activision specifically announced that the game would use the servers, so it'd be news if that's a lie.

A couple of 2 player co-op launch titles using peer-to-peer is not so much newsworthy.

PR_FROM_OHIO950d ago

But,But we have 300,000 servers!! LOL Sure Microsoft smh
