Bungie told it's players to come out between 2-4 PM PST on Saturday and show its servers the true meaning of war. Now, Xbox's party and friends system has broke, and it looks like we've succeeded.
Oh boy Xbox live Party system crashing? and weeks ago Xbox Live core service was limited? I thought Xbox live was Perfection itself jk jk. That's surprising!
Better with the Beta than the final game.
Very true. The Beta factor has to be taken into consideration.
Oh, boy it's the schizophrenic psycho Naruto fan! The difference is this will more than likely be fixed by the end of the night.
And the curse of MS and Xb1 continues!When will it end?.I think Sony is using VOODOO against MS :P
where the online superiority at? where the 300k dedicated servers at? where the cloud at? lmao PSN>XBL ALL DAY lmao xbl down wii u wii u wii u
which one went down for a month :) Sorry but until XBL goes down for an entire month or becomes unstable for more than a few hours, PSN will always have the title of worst online service between the two.
To be fair, its not like PSN just straight up broke for a whole month. They shut down psn due to the privacy intrusion it had from the hackers. Im glad they shut it down to fix the problem so it never happens again. It would be a different story if we were paying for mandatory online play back then but it was still free at that point. You know the saying, "you get what you pay for"
dude, psn never was DOWN A MONTH, PSN WAS HACKED 3 YEARS AGO, NOW IT'S 2014 AND SONY IS SPANKING THAT XBOX ASS
Ummm... http://www.engadget.com/200... http://www.examiner.com/art... "Xbox Live has been through this before as well, during holiday season no less! For nearly 2 weeks the Xbox Live outage raged on and, well, it seems like us gamers still haven't quite learned our lesson. I guess patience really is a virtue. If you thought a weekend was a long time to get a network rebuilt then perhaps you don't remember when Xbox Live was shut down simply from 'expansion pains'." Are you new to this debate? The noobs are the ones that seem to come up with idiotic comments like yours. Just two days ago someone wrote in a stream's chat "Sony is greedy, Microsoft is better." LOL Sad noob right there. 😂 Playstation is now superior to Xbox in every single way!
300k. dedicated servers for xbox one game version , this is a beta being run by Activision and bungie . Not MS so no servers till release.
The full game will still not be on MS servers. Thats only something that XBOX exclusive games get to use. Every 3rd party game will use their own servers. edit. Nope im wrong. MS made their azure servers open to every developer but its their choice to use them. But i doubt a developer sitting behind a publisher like activision will have the need to use them. I wouldnt be suprised if MS charges each developer to use their servers.
Nope it will stay the same. It's the same setup on all platforms - http://www.gameinformer.com... http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... "this is a beta being run by Activision and bungie . Not MS" - In the first place why would MS being running a beta for a game they are neither publishing or have a studio developing. It's not their property to do so.
Yup, beta and all MMO type games are running on game company's server but we're talking about party chat here which would be with MS's server.
It's not being ran on Xbox Live actual servers. Activision and Bungie. Just like EA have their own servers for their games..... Hmmm must be a fanboy
party chat is obviously run through ms's servers. the beta isnt down, party is
Lol fanboy. If they would have used ms servers and the cloud maybe you could say that. And just maybe they wouldnt have that problem. Lol the cloud and dedicated servers, how moronic. You must havent played the beta, its the same game on every console. You fanboys are the reason a multiplat multiplayer game wont use ms dedicated servers. If you know the xone version is dedicated servers, you are so full of hate you wouldnt buy the ps4 version. Thats easy for them to see, i mean look at you. Thus, they loose money, money trumps all when your goal is to make money. Hopefully that doesnt stand true and the devs take advantage of what ms is offering. You boys getting desperate these days i see on n4g. Lol only a matter of time. Clocks ticking. @caprademon i have, fps is a no no on ps4. Have you ever seen a fps that isnt bf or cod succeed on ps? That controller and responsiveness is horrid for shooters. Imo so f n clunky. I just tried to play with friends and my exp was horrible. I wouldnt buy destiny if it wasnt for xone soooooo to each his own. Fps on a ps lmfao. Thats cute.
lol did you really just call someone else a fanboy. that pretty sad. I also enjoyied you saying that " its the same game on every console" then saying your fan boy crap about fps being worse on ps. Are you trying to make an idiot out of your self.
"fanboy" are you referring to yourself leech?
You make me hate my playstation ....
"But they picked on us during the 360 vs. PS3 war and it made me sad, so im gonna be an immature turds too. It's only fair". Sure let's not rise above petty squabbles lets all be turds.
Lol spectre way to rise above. Pot meet kettle
I wonder if you understand sarcasm, seeing as my post reeked of it. Edit: at least spell my tag correctly if your going to try and gain ... well I don't know what you were trying to gain I'm still just trying to figure out how long you've been waiting to use your "pot meet kettle" line.
Lol you fail so hard.
It was a Bungie software error man. I was able to talk and play just fine during the said times with people. I was just unable to invite people through Destiny's friends splash screen. Quit FUDing around.
Are all the moderators on holidays or something. How has this comment not been flagged yet??
We have mods here?
i've personally have had no problems with destiny- On my ps4 lol
Hmmm, that is why we can't log on and play multiplayer games.
Had issues on ps4 also game getting kicked out of games
getting kicked out of "games" meaning matches on destiny? Or do you mean your ps4 is kicking you out of your games? If you are getting kicked from lobbies on destiny, that is not PSN's fault
As in couldn't log on to destiny and couldn't stay in crucible matches
Yeah that's not an issue with psn. that's just a case of the beta bugs. :)
Looks like Great results if that is what it's suppose to measure with the Beta.
Been on since this morning and been in a party
Destiny is cursed. It crash everything. Edit: thinking about it, i think Activision want to dominate the internet... somebody stop them o.o
The chat system on Xbone has been broken since the Beta started. I have voices coming out of the my headphone, out of the TV, out of the Kinect. They DONT however work when you unsnap the party from the screen. It's utterly broken at the moment.
I don't know what you are doing but party chat works fine. Even when you unsnap it. Used it this morning no problem.
I'm not doing anything wrong. it just wasn't working at all last 2 days. My friends were having the same problem.
you have to be in a fireteam to talk
We were. It wasn't working for us. Voices coming out of headsets, and TV. Then it wouldn't let us use just regular Xbox chat.
Party chat is glitched for Destiny beta. In order for it to work you have to do exactly what I say..... 1: Start Party chat with friends in the party. 2: Press the guide button on the controller and highlight Destiny Beta. 3: Press the menu button, and scroll down to QUIT Destiny Beta. 4: Launch Destiny Beta If you do this, party chat will work. Otherwise it will glitch and the only way to hear party members will be to have it Snapped. Hope this helps, been doing it since the Beta launched on Xbox
Me and my friends gave up and started using game chat for the first time in years lol. Better be fixed in final game.
@LAWSON72 Yeah I understand, I had discovered the glitch the morning the beta released for Xbox one. Searched online, and their was already a forum regarding the glitch and explaining a workaround. Anyhow, I agree! It better be fixed for launch hahaha.
if you're using gamechat, its set to play through your speakers and headphones, a simple change of your settings would fix it. also, start your parties before you open destiny and youll be fine. if you open destiny first, go to the home screen, press start on the destiny box, and press quit. when you re-open the game, unsnap the party right away. it'll fix that problem. thats a problem with destiny though, not the party system
Go into settings on destiny and go to audio select your desired preferences there
These are Bungie/Activision issues. Bungie even addressed these issues as their own in the FAQ section for the Destiny Beta on Xbox One.
The party system is running on xbl servers even if the game is running on activision servers for the beta. This whole xbl vs psn thing is kinda old news now. Psn on ps4 has been very stable for me. There's issues every once and a while, but there's issues every once in a while on xbl. Since launch party chat on ps4 has worked every time I've used it. In like 2009 sure, xbl kicked psn's ass, although psn was free. But now there both very stable like 99 percent of the time.
I didn't hear a single person talk the whole time I was playing the Destiny beta. lol Of course, I wasn't playing with friend, but still, not one peep. I'm not complaining though, silence is better than cursing and idiots.
you can only hear the people in your fire team
Must be a localized issue. It worked fine for us.
I tried to change to different party, and was unable to. Party chat just died at that point, for me anyways. My friends were still in theirs.
And yet it worked just fine on PSN. Have proof XBL is better than PSN? Then show it. And please don't mention the 2011 hack. If the government can be hacked into then ANYTHING can. Codes and numbers people. That's all it is.
Party chat is far different from the actual game. There were no hiccups in the game.
Xbox Help on Twitter said there were log in issues. In fact, if you go and look at that Twitter feed, you'll see Live on XB1 has had many more issues than PSN on PS4. From the horses mouth too
Oh perfection that is xbox live. I guess nothing if perfect after all just say in!!!!!
this the reason why developers should stop gimping the xbox one version...please make your games using MS dedicated servers.
The party chat was affected on the 360 also. I hope we hear what caused it. Game play wasn't affected.
at least xbox doesn't get hacked for a month
Yeah, it just has the Red Ring Of Death for a couple of years :-)
A lot of cheering from the PlayStation faithful over this one; Well, good for you. The key element that you all are missing, blinded by your joy, is the fact that the XBL network itself did not crash, it was just the "Friends/Party" aspect of the service. You could still play online games, including Destiny, and use all of the other online apps and services. Now admittedly, not being able to talk to your friends and join their game, is frustrating and can cause your gaming experience to less enjoyable. The good news is, it will be fixed :)
Talking while gaming online distract me. I prefer not to talk while in a match. Even when in a party.
There goes the mighty/coveted/acclaimed 300,000 servers the Xbox team and xbone supported loved to brag about. Azure might be impressive but it ain't all mighty like they want us to believe
well this is starting to tick me off. while you can play online fine no party system, few weeks ago we couldn't sign in. what is going with microsoft servers this gen you would think after so many years of xbox live they would have it down. someone is getting fired for sure, while i doubt the beta had anything to do with it. that beta needs lots of work theres times when my team has all the points and the game says they captured all points we are being overrunned. or when the other team has all the points and says we have all the points or they have two points and still says they have all points. I've also noticed some people are starting a match with their power all ready charged up. some issues with the titan smash sometimes player take no damage from hit. titan super punch not much stronger than a regular melee
Live is still down...it's been down for over 7 hours now...
thought xbl was superior to psn and never crashed? power of the cloud, dedicated servers, azure etc. So what happened?
What happened is a lot of fanboys got together to upvote and agree each other into ignorance. Of course everyone is online agreeing because anytime Xbox does anything wrong its the end of the world. Anytime Ps does it. Its just part of the plan and they are doing it because they are for the gamers. I have both consoles and I can tell you PSN still has a long way to go. PS4 IS A MORE POWERFUL CONSOLE. Just like XBL has better chat and dedicated servers. Here come the disagrees. :)
You do have alot more people on xbox live than psn so this is no surprise.Plus destiny is gonna be huge on the xbox systems compared to the playstation systems.I would say there are about 5 million people playing the beta.I know titanfall had over 2 million for their beta on xbox live and everything went smooth.Also you have to think since the X1 hit $399 its doubled in sales more people jumping online now
I was playing last night and was having problems. I must admit I did think, so this is what its like to be on the psn network, minus the credit card information hack and down for months, but still.
I bought my Xbox one the week it came out and the party chat system has barely worked at all. Half the time your party joins and can't talk or can talk but you cant. I'm not certain how you can mess up the awesome system you had on the Xbox360 but mission accomplished. At least Skype works well. They seriously do need to fix the horrendous chat though. It is terrible.
@Geist You might wanna check your NAT settings in the network settings. If they are set to strict or moderate instead of open it will definitely hinder your ability to chat with a lot of people on Xbox live, including in your party. Just a thought, may or may not work.
