If you're going to take the time to comment, at least read what you're about to bash first.
This article mentions GEARS OF WAR nowhere.
It specifically states "commenting on multiplayer lag issues on XBLA."

haha bill gates son has chosen to edit his post, nice, cmon billy boy, keep your kid in check

Firewire4192d ago

So now MS blames lag on developers!
What a load of crap! Those same dev's build games for PSN & PC with no lag!
Its called dedicated servers you little xbots!
Your paying $50 a year for garbage "live" and you don't even get dedicated servers! MS is in serious denial mode!
For shame xbots/MS, for shame!

Hate to tell you "Bill Gates", but both Sony and Nintendo have a LONG way to go before they can rival the Xbox Live service. I'm not saying that they won't get there, because quality will come with time, but it's not going to happen over night.

"Bill Gate5" with a 5, you rule.

darkdoom30004191d ago

co-operating with/encouraging fanboys will probally mean you are a fanboy yourself...
All bill gates' is not cool...

He seems allright to me, from that snippet anyway, He didn't kick dirt on the competition. Whenever I hear about an interview with a Sony exec I get Mad nervous, praying that they don't say anything retarded.

I mean its bad enuff the PS3 costs a million dollars, don't need dumbass comments to make anything worse.

The Title is more exciting that the article. : (

Good one drtysouf21

that XBOX live is the number 1 online choice so far this generation. There will always be lag wether it be to a server or P2P.

Actually P2P is one of the biggest advantages bc as games get older they will be taken off of their respective servers for new ones to replace them.

This has already happened with EA games that are old. With XBOX live all you need is 2 people to have the same game and to get online. Whether it be a new game or a game that is 10 years old.

suffers from lag. Makes me wonder where that $150 million a year is going towards, especially when compared to the reliable, free networks provided by Nintendo and Sony.

Boink4192d ago

he is saying that the bulk of the time, the lag is coming from bad/inneficient programming, not from the actual network.

I mean how can halo2 run flawlessly 95%+ most of the time on the same network, but contra that send's like 1/10th of the data oe less on the same network doesn't?
