Xbox One OS and Xbox Live issues bouncing about as we approach launch

Cut some stuff, more at the link.


The short story is that Xbox Live and the OS, especially in functions that involve XBL, are a complete fucking mess. One source says we aren’t talking weeks until it works correctly but “months.” Things like parties dropping people when moving from one thing to another. Connectivity issues. Missed invites. Friend requests not working, etc.

“Let me get into some technical detail regarding it – on 360, the OS handles all of the party and chat functionality. All you do is hook up the XBL VOiP OS API into your game, and it does most of the work for you. With it results in is a shared experience across multiple entertainment. If you’re watching movies or playing games, you can do it together. However, this system is entirely different on Xbox One. So, lets say me, you, and Thuway have xbox one’s that are online. We are signed in our profiles. Sitting at the home screen, we are considered to be in a “Xbox Party” on the server. There are no more ‘party leaders’. With that said if any one of us decide to start a game, the party is shifted over to that game’s party system. Each game now has their custom written VOIP.” (Pete note: shoutout to thuway!)


I asked if could be fixed soon. He said that anything is possible and Microsoft is obviously working on it but he thinks it will be months, not weeks. Getting online launch games certified is taking so long that it’s pushing games after launch back.

“In essence, it is almost EXACTLY how it was on the PS3, and it is in those API “handshakes” that is breaking the online experience.”

Oh boy.

Yawn. Stayed up for nothing. No specifics, just a bunch of kinda-sorta-maybes.

Tell me that friendslists won't work at launch. Tell me something concrete.

Meh.

Since it's a little out there now, it's pretty bad situation.

There are other things but this covers a good chunk of some of the BS happening behind the scenes.

Wow the party system being fucked sounds amazingly bad. How could ms fuck that up when they had it working so well on 360.

And months to fix? They should just delay the console.

Didnt cboat mention these problems months ago.

I can only imagine how rushed the xbox OS guys are. The DRM back track must have set them back months on something that was allegedly already behind schedule

TLDR version: friends shit might not work at launch. It could work, but probably not or maybe it could.

Allard's vision destroyed.

Seems like everything is a complete mess on Microsoft's side.

This kind of info has been out forever. I think this is a non-issue coming from side developers who aren't involved with the 'fix' even if it's needed.

This guy hyped up this article and it wasn't much of anything IMO.

That's when they had months to fix it.

The problems persist.

That sounds worrying if true but I don't see what is so obvious about the DRM that would have to do with the problems...It was just a timer/connectivity check and is this game used?

“Yeah, getting anything online to work was a pain for months, barely worked at the very end of last month. Adding friends, sending game invites or even achievements’ toasts could be a nightmare. I don’t know that much outside of “my” project, but from what I saw in others, online was always a problem. No idea if this will still be an issue at launch though, I think it would be too much, but it looks like it won’t be flawless at all.”

Exactly. Hardly worth hyping up.

The 720p thing is way bigger news until we get something more concrete.

Not that much of a deal imo. Will be fixed in future patches. PS4 starts without all stuff working as well. As long as basic functionality runs fine (e.g. playing games) it could pass without much trouble for MS.
