Destiny’s Public Beta Stress Test Just Crashed Xbox Live’s Party System

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. (Destiny, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

In addition to what the title say below is also affected. So PSN didn't crash even with many more users?

"Xbox Live Core Services Limited"

Signing into Xbox Live "7/26/2014 5:29:30 PM CST"

To be fair, more people use the party chat system on Xbox Live. There are a lot of silent lobbies when it comes to Playstation multiplayer games. Just sayin.

@opproject

I'm not damage controlling anything. Idk the exact cause of the crash, I was giving a reasonable guess as to why it could have happened. Or would you rather have me make a snark comment about Xbox live being unstable and PSN being better? I'd choose to be civil, thank you.

When you use party chat, then it means that you have a private chat with your party! Of cource the lobbies are silent if everyone uses Party Chat.. You just proved that everyone on PS4 uses the Party Chat, since the lobbies are quiet.

I use Party Chat all the time with my friends, instead of Game Chat.

@Rock Lee, I should have clarified, more lobbies are silent on PS because people don't use their headsets or they don't have one. More people use the party system on Xbox compared to Playstation, thus resulting in the crash, that was my original point.

Wait so you know there are more people using the party chat on xbl for this beta than there are for the ps4 based on what? Just so you know there is no proximity chat in destiny. Only fire squad and party chat. That's on both consoles. I don't know why you felt you had to give an excuse for xbl party chat breaking lol
BX81  +   55d ago
Can't argue with that. I agree more people use chat on xbl than psn. Now if that would cause a crash? That's different

"There are a lot of silent lobbies when it comes to Playstation multiplayer games. Just saying."

I've never noticed that at all, even on PS3 where no headset was included. Just saying.

Voice chat causes problems for the infinite power of the Cloud, apparently. It is a beta though, after all.

Party chat is broke in destiny unless you snap it you can not hear anyone! Just use the in game chat works perfect.
RichardDawkins  +   55d ago
@Everyone

I made a mistake with my wording.

More people have headsets and use them on Xbox Live/ more people used the party system on Xbox Live during the Destiny Beta, THAT was my GUESS as to why it could have stressed their servers out.

The "silent lobbies" was in regards to most PS users not having or using their headsets while they play their games. It's definitely more quiet when you play a PS online game compared to an XB online game.

And it's funny,
people would rather mock or use insults to get hollow agrees rather than come up with a logical alternative answer.

@Thrust

Doesn't mean people will use it.

People need to calm down! it was a guess! lol

Spotie  +   54d ago | Well said
@Richard: Since every PS4 comes with a headset in the box, and there are more PS4s in the wild than there are XB1s, what you say doesn't seem likely.

You're not pushing this as am educated guess. You're insisting on it, as if there could be no other explanation. But it's even more likely that PSN just isn't having problems.

I can only guess you're basing your assumption of party chat use on the PS3, which wouldn't make sense for a multitude of reasons. The most important one there is that it's a different console, entirely.

More important than that, though, is that you'd have no freaking clue how frequently party chat was being used in Destiny. Unless you were in a party, you wouldn't hear other people. If you weren't in a party, you'd hear nothing, voice wise.

Unless you've got Sony or Bungie-provided numbers, toffee really got nothing.

That's why people are "attacking" you.

This was true of PS3 chat systems.

It's not true at all of PS4's party chat.

PS4's party system is incredibly popular and streamlined. When you play in 64 player games of battlefield, almost everyone is in a party with pals. It's maybe slightly worse than the Xbox system.

Most of the people I was on with at the time of the test (2pm PT), were using mics. Don't know how that affects the server as the game is already designed to have multiple people using chat.

ShinMaster  +   54d ago
@ RichardDawkins

Let me tell you exactly why you're WRONG:

- You can't cite "silent lobbies" as evidence for lower private Party Chat activity. I doesn't make sense.
- Every PS4 comes with a headset and many PS3 owners are able to use previous headsets with it as well. What you said is nothing more than an assumption based on an older biased opinion by others.
- Party Chat is free on PSN, so more people are likely to use it than on XBL.
- There are millions more people who own a PS4 than an Xbox One.
- And there are more people playing the Destiny Beta on PS4.

Strange wonder what problem is. I don't think the game is using dedicated azure servers. It does seem that other games are also affected and doesn't seem tied to preview program.
If it is tied to the bungie beta of destiny it might be that there is a problem with some of the (friend list data) send between servers to and from at Microsoft.

I had issues with the beta on my ps4.. was unable to find a match in the crucible. It would just say "searching for guardians..." and would be stuck at 1/12 players.. Also the tower was completely empty... no other players.. it was weird.. happened at about 2:15 PDT.. so most likely due to the flood of players.

apparently the ps3 was affected... but I was also affected on the PS4... I signed off after about 15 minutes of trying to find a match.. so I can't say how long it was an issue.

Edit: Sorry it was only the Iron Banner tourny that i couldnt access.. didnt try regular control matches..

The crash was there and it was around 15 minutes no more. Do we need an article each time something is wrong with XBL for 5 mins? As for problems with party chat in destiny it has nothing to do with XBL but with Destiny itself. You just need to launch party app before launching Destiny and everything will be fine. Game chat from destiny is crap compared to xbox live group chat which has much higher quality and response time.

This article makes people believe XBL was down for a long time. Another click bite to make ps hardcore fanboys have something to talk about. THe person who wrote the article has no idea what it's all about and makes two completely separate issues into one to make it more believable.

Loool! This made my day!

Another Xbot myth exposed that Live is better than PSN.

Yes it was in the first years of last gen but Xbots were paying and PS3 owners weren't.

Half as many people and the first test of the amazing Cloud and its gone disastrously wrong like everything else Microsoft have done in the past year.

When will you Xdrones get it through your thick heads that MS not content with trying to ruin gaming have just told lie after lie?

Even last month they dumped Kinect which they said they'd never do and which Xbots were saying is brilliant and totally makes the console, it would not be good without it, but as soon as it gets dumped its all "oh great decision Microsoft, its what was needed" now the sales will pick up lol.

Constantly grasping at Stacked GPU, DX12, Tiled Resources, the Cloud etc straws.

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

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

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

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.

This wouldnt be happening if the Ps4 wasnt holding back the X1. This would be nothing but a flip of switch on the Azure network. But sony gotta keep their BS last gen online system messing it up for everyone.

HA HA HA HA HA... just adding some balance to the sony fanboys talking smack.

Even though this pretty true I am just kidding. This is what Betas are for. They wanted to test it. I think Azure can just automatically detect usage and spin up more servers. With Bungie they need to know the load or at least and idea of what the full load can be so they can get the servers they need up.

From the horses mouth too

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.

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?
DLConspiracy  +   54d ago
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.
