Microsoft’s Biggest Challenge For Making Crackdown's Multiplayer Destruction Work Is Your ISP

Since the Xbox One was announced, we’ve been hearing about the power of the cloud. In the upcoming Crackdown from Reagent Games, it manifests as completely destructible environments in multiplayer.

Isn't all online games dependent on the user's ISP? David Jones already said you only need 2-4mb/s of Internet transfer speed to make this work so for the majority of the popular, this won't even be an issue.

*click* "gotcha!"

Have u ever played a mp fps at 2mb/s? Gtfo. 2mb/s!?!? That's bs.

For all intensive purposes u can not play a mp fps or tps at 2mb/s or 2mbps.

That's laughable to think a more Internet intensive mp game can run well at 2mbps. A game with massive destruction and fast paced action that uses server based physics and requires a solid connection for transfer data. Goodluck at under 10mbps.

I wouldn't feel comfortable unless i had at least 25mbps, can u imagine the competitive disadvantage someone under 5mbps would have? Lag city my friend.

Current mp fps should be played at no less than 10mbps, definitely not anything under 8mbps unless u want a slide show and u like dying. Ideally u want 25mbps or more. Surely Crackdown will require more mbps than the common mp fps/tps. 2-4 lol.

i got 2mb/s and never had any problem in any MMOs unless the server had issues, it works perfectly fine.

Yeah dude they are going around telling bold face lies just to piss you off. Did you not know that's how the world works now? Everything is about you?

remixx1161073d ago

@tyler, I died laughing when you said slideshow.

@cartoonx1, yeah I can play ffxiv on ps4 pretty well at 2mb/s.........right up until the Odin fate pops and the server damn near crashes from the players tryna crowd the area.

I used to play CounterStrike lag-free on 56.6Kbps (that's a massive 7KB), stop spreading FUD.

2-4Mbps is more than adaquate to transfer text based location data, do you even realise that 250-500KB holds 256000 to 512000 characters? Half a million characters per second not enough, really? LMFAO

Also, just to educate you a little about 'MP gaming'... if you had a 100Mbps connection with a latency of 100ms and I have a 2Mbps connection with a latency of 20ms I'd have a significant competitive advantage over you. Google PING and gaming.

So in other words.... if your Internet is down it won't work? Lemme guess.. it won't load Web pages, downloads, streaming music or amazing articles like this? *shocked*
