That quick resume viewer sounds pretty neat. I have not yet experimented with QR as I am just too used to quitting my games when i am done playing. I even do the same when switching between streaming apps.

Some nice updates! They really need to addd HDR to the dashboard. It’s so annoying when playing a game and it switching back and forth from HDR to SDR when accessing the dashboard and going back the the game.

Would also like background music like PS5. Doubt that will ever happen though.

To be honest with you, once i start a game, the only time i go to the dashboard is to turn the console off.

Switching of game/apps is done through the mini guide.

It’s a habit most people have been doing for years, it took me some time to adjust.
Quick resume can actually save your ass if you exit a game that doesn’t auto save.

You might be surprised to find you have suspended titles already when the update is out.

Quick Resume is both fantastic and fantastically disappointing.

Yakuza 0, Ninja Gaiden 2, The Medium, Call of the Sea all gave/are giving me zero issues.

Halo MCC after a day forgets how to refresh matchmaking servers. Halo 5 after a couple days fails to connect to any & all dedicated servers. Doom 3 and Falconeer acted like Quick Resume didn't do anything despite the icon showing. Skyrim FPS Boost and performance hits the shitter after a few hours once it falls into a QR state (like the game clock doesn't stop or something). On Reddit, people also have reported the same issues in Far Cry 4 FPS Boost and QR.

It's awesome not needing to quit a single player game to play some Halo, but it's so damn unreliable. It just baffles my mind that MCC still has this issue too - it was the very first post on their main feedback thread on their forums for the *January* seasonal patch!

I’ve had the same issues with Nier Automata. I had one time after a month not playing the game broke. Then after a few days in QR I tried it was fine. Let my niece play fort nite and then it had the most awkward break where the screen had white speckles then it just crashed. Had to quit the game.

Only thing I can compare QR to is rest mode and I’ve never had issues like this with rest mode. So, really hope they fix this as I leave a lot of my games on pause only to come back to them broken.

Common sense, you can not suspend a server based connection in any game.

Tacoboto32d ago

lol, it only needs a connection to the server when I'm in a game or searching for one. After differing lengths of time, MCC just stops searching, and 5 does successfully search, but fails connecting to the freshly created server.

And Microsoft has the switch to turn Quick Resume on or off for a game.

I’m really digging Xbox’s OS. It’s solid and fast

I honestly love the feature! It’s so useful for when you decide to take a quick half hour to a hour break and then boom you are right back into your game.
