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!

Mr Pumblechook1728d ago

Better with the Beta than the final game.

MysticStrummer1728d ago

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.

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

IcicleTrepan1728d ago (Edited 1728d ago )

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.

dontbhatin1728d ago (Edited 1728d ago )

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"

"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.

dontbhatin1728d ago (Edited 1728d ago )

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.

Kayant1728d ago

Nope it will stay the same. It's the same setup on all platforms -

"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.

ThanatosDMC1727d ago

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.

DoubleM701728d ago

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

wsoutlaw871727d ago

party chat is obviously run through ms's servers. the beta isnt down, party is

FanboyKilla1728d ago (Edited 1728d ago )

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

@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.

wsoutlaw871727d ago

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.

are you referring to yourself leech?

Specter2291728d ago

You make me hate my playstation ....

Specter2291728d ago (Edited 1728d ago )

"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.

BlackTar1871727d ago

Lol spectre way to rise above. Pot meet kettle

Specter2291727d ago (Edited 1727d ago )

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.

DLConspiracy1728d ago

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.
