[Metro]Chris Lewis confirms Xbox One Live Gold fee for online gaming plus ‘we will support second-hand games’. - Page 22

post #211 of 220
I will be playing XBOX LIVE in the nude with my junk right in front of the kinect for anyone to enjoy if they care to tap into my kinect. Otherwise I will just turn it towards the wall or cover it with my skid marked underwear.

With how many posts you have you sure have a hard time setting an example for the rest of the community. Hope you cool off instead of vomiting on your keyboard rolleyes.gif

Please, go preach elsewhere. The Xbox One is no more a gaming system than it is a PVR.

If your content paying up to £600 for this new Xbox all the more power to you, ive already got a PVR in my SKY Box thats im quite happy with.

When or IF PSN equals or surpasses Xbox Live, then we'll have a big bone to pick with MS (or sony will just charge more for their services)
I'm really curious if you or someone else who has used both Xbox Live and PSN can explain what makes Xbox Live better than PSN to me, someone who has never used Xbox Live, but is content with PSN. I'm just curious what bonuses Xbox Live has that warrants the cost to the people who enjoy it and use it often.

I have both, use both and I'll sum it up since, I've actually SEEN both server rooms.

Xbox uses enterprise racks, OSP custom racks and their rack room is one of the best, bar none, of the entire gaming community combined. -- I'm not a Microsoft fanboy at ALL but, Microsoft actually did this right.

Sony uses recycled racks from other assets of the company...They're okay but, they're unreliable and glitchy -- It's a free service because they don't choose to take it beyond that so, you'll find that when you're playing games like NHL 13, you're actually on an EA owned server as opposed to the PSN network, itself ~ It's a virtual proxy...They've been doing it for years.

Sony's longest down-time was 2.2 months.
Xbox live's was 6 hours.

Xbox live has ~30m users.
PSN has ~90m users.

Microsoft recycles their gross revenue into NEW servers.
Sony does not have a revenue budget to recycle.

Overall, with Xbox, you're paying for an all-inclusive on-line experience...Not just a pick up and play.
Sony attempts to make a on-line experience but, it's buggy...meh...They just don't have the network to support all of the active users.

I found these posts and it basically boils down to cross-game party chat, and ease of jumping into games with friends. My friends and I just use Vent to accomplish this, since we primarily play on our computers, so we have been using that when you go to other platforms (it's nice when we are all playing on different systems), but I definitely see how nice it would be having that integrated into the console.

Thanks for this explanation on how things are run, I know I have been annoyed with EA servers in Fifa and NHL with how laggy they can be, and this explains it!
