Xbox development boss teases "exciting" platform updates: "This is just the beginning", currently updating quick resume, broadcasting and more

I have no interest in tempering anyone's excitement and I doubt that posting negative opinions and criticisms, even glibly, accomplishes that. Quite the contrary, it is only those with a negative opinion that were stopped from expressing it. The positivity police seem to have weird obsession with that.
A thread that would've died in ten posts has been turned into a near three page shit show because of "glib posts" that the "positivity police" have to put up with in every single Xbox thread.

You know games are on the way, because Xbox are buying devs and publishers left, right and centre. There's a daily speculation thread about it. What do you think is going to happen by posting "lol, no games" in this completely unrelated thread? What were you expecting the reaction to be?

On topic, I love quick resume but it screwed me on Immortals - lost ten hours after a crash when it decided to forget the last six days of activity. Not sure it was totally quick resume’s fault, seems to be a bug with Immortals BUT the fix is not to use quick resume until they patch it apparently. Happening to lots of people.
Hmm, interesting! Did you have Ubi server connection issues? I lost about 20 hours of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, for some reason my local saves got duplicated and didn’t work and the cloud saves weren’t recent because of server issues. No idea if it was related to Quick Resume though.

What shit show? What are you talking about? It's words on a computer screen. What was I expecting the reaction to be? More discussion, more argument and more debate. All good things!

Also, I don't think I posted "lol no games" like that, nor do I think it's unrelated. The article teased "exciting" bug fixes which annoyed me as someone who shelled out $500 for their space heater, so I felt compelled to ask where the games were instead. Forgive me for not writing a thesis paper with citations.

Valhalla had\has a known issue with saves corrupting using ubi connect on both consoles. Watch dogs has also been a shit show for me on PS5. I think it interferes with save uploads and clashes with whatever ubiconnect is doing. I just turned off the ps auto sync and it's been fine since.

Its simple, you want to cry about games... cry about games. But in the thread about games. Or better yet, make a thread about it. Don't like your Xbox? Sell it instead of coming here everyday bitching about it and derailing threads to sour other people's experience on the forum.

I don't even care, nor am excited about what features are being teased. Im impartial on it and even agree on games lacking. But shitposting and derailing has become so prevalent by toxic fanboys that good posters have stopped posting or come here much less.

You don't think this thread is a shit show? Genuinely?

A thread where the topic should be speculation on upcoming features, or discussion of current features, has been derailed by "lol Xbox" and meta bullshit. That is what you wanted here?

And what debate? What discussion? Debate and discussion is driven by fresh ideas, not well-chewed memes disguised as unfunny one-liners.

But I don't come here every day to "derail" Xbox threads, as if that's even a real thing. People often accuse others of derailing threads because the discussion went into a direction they didn't want it to go.

Toxic fanboy? I own the system. God, I keep getting told you can't criticize a game or system unless you've played it, and here I am having played the thing, and I still can't express my opinion on the fucking thing.

This thread is not about games. Simple as that, if you can't understand stand that. There's no point in replying to someone who lacks simple comprehension.

You’re impartial and ‘don’t care’ yet you’re screaming for people to be banned. You haven’t been here that lot and know what good posters don’t post here any more due to specifically ‘Sony gaf’ or maybe it’s the mass banning since January.

Where were these good posters when the specs were released last year?

My post here was deleted for my ungodly sin of wondering where all the Xbox games are, then I was insulted in the reason my post was deleted.



I thought NeoGAF had changed its ways and allowed people to actually express themselves. No, I'm not impressed that they are updating quick resume. I own the system and am wondering, where the games at?
So you derail the thread, get warned, then derail it again just to whine about moderation? You're not very bright, are you?

On topic: QR improvements, especially the ability to lock a game in the QR locker (so it never gets pushed out) would be ideal, best feature of the gen by far. It's completely changed the way I play some games that I would not bother to start before.

It's not about much of anything of substance. That's my entire point. Oh, they are "teasing" exciting new bug fixes? Being able to look at your achievements in the app?

I am completely and utterly okay with anyone being excited about these things. But I do not think it is wrong to say that you are not, and that the Xbox team is calling these things more than what they are because there is a lack of content right now.

Can you point out what I did that was wrong? I mean, if you are insinuating that I am going to catch a ban, so be it. I thought NeoGAF had changed so I was surprised my post was deleted like we're on Reddit.

September was 6 weeks ago? Could have fooled me. Im not entertaining a fanboy who uses insults and stupid words like "xboys" and has the grammar of a 7 year old anymore.

Now this is an actual argument and not "lolz no gamez". Could have posted this the first time. New features are nice but nothing I'm excited about either.

Im just waiting to see what will happen at the upcoming keynote address.

Strange. Again you are crying for people to be banned; accuse me of making bait threads in a sentence that was grammatically incorrect in your first post, with no proof other than tales from your ass. Can’t use proper grammar yourself, with sentences that don’t make sense (bait accusation), can’t use commas and you’re missing apostrophes, yet resort to the most child like thing on a forum and attack someone’s grammar, while simultaneously failing at it yourself.

I’ve asked for receipts for your bait bullshit and you’ve failed to deliver, then go on about grammar.

You’re acting the clown now.

You should because for some reason the worlds most powerful console can't even get this part right.

Unless ofc you ain't got a 4k TV. Or hdr.

It can of course do it, it's a priority thing. Does it really make that much sense to use ~400% more RAM resources (I've heard they set aside almost a GB of RAM for possible 4K UI, don't know if that's true) for a 4K UI when this could be reserved for games (or even other useful features like quick resume, IDK) instead? How many even notice.. It's not my first priority, that's for sure..

So I criticize a video game console, then I am personally insulted by a mod and other posters, and that makes me a clown? If you say so, but I think it reflects much more poorly on those who slung personal insults in response to criticizing an inanimate object.

I don’t think so. The game crashed at the end of one of the challenges (the same one a lot of people have crashes at - Hermes Challenge I think it’s called) and I had to force quit, which I never do. When I reloaded it was like the last few days never happened... Not sure why the saves weren’t uploading. I tried deleting the save file and let it resync from Xbox Live, but it downloaded the same files, so for some reason they weren’t uploading to the server.

The troll can make up complete fud; insult people over grammar (while failing at their own); cry for bans; all while trying to claim the high road, and yet you come in here and tell me to grow up because I call out his hypocrisy?

why bother posting?

Mission Accomplished :messenger_tears_of_joy:

Is it salvageable? (don’t know why I’m bothering)

Anyone got any speculation as to what they’re cooking up? Beyond QR improvements I mean...

Buried amongst the shit in this thread I’ve seen people hoping for...

4K UI
VR support

I’d like to see them revive digital lending too. That was an idea ahead of its time, crushed by the noise of a thousand miserable, outraged fanboys :messenger_tears_of_joy:

cormack12 cormack12 said other Ubi games had save issues too so it might be related to that rather than Quick Resume. It sucks though. I instantly uninstalled Valhalla and looked up the ending...

I have two 4k TV's but a 4K UI isn't a big deal to me, if it slows down the dash in any way then it's not worth it, I'm not spending hours looking at the dash I just want to navigate it quickly and smoothly.

MS really has to stop with the secrecy and hype buzzwords.
PreLaunch they showed us what the BC team is working on when it comes to Xbone games on the Series consoles. But then suddenly they went silent. Whats going on?
Or what about the request i see a lot recently to overhaul the Achievements etc
To be honest they can stop the monthly Console updates if that helps to create more meaningful updates.

you conveniently ignore most of my post and then say I make bait threads? where are these bait threads that I make then? Considering you do lack awareness of what is actually going on, I'll assume you're blind and use brail to type; that must be why you are confusing me with someone else and these 'bait' threads.

keep trying harder to get people banned.
Ignore that dude. He shitposts in Sony topics as well. Its the usual hypocritical Xbros crying about shit they do in topics regularly. I guess they are the only ones that can be critical of anything.

Back on topic. Ive always admired how fast Microsoft gets updates and features to their consoles compared to the competition. Exciting times are coming to Team Green, with regards to games and features IMO.

I know I just find it amusing these clowns cry to the mods while ignoring 6 months of trolling and shitting up of every exclusive game thread. I guess if Xbox had more exclusive aaa games to discuss they would have their own threads.

Beyond the improvements already stated by Jason Ronald regarding Quick Resume, I would be interested in a version of Quick Resume for apps as well. Since I am always bouncing between YouTube, Netflix, Peacock, etc. it would be nice to have an equivalent.

I absolutely love Auto-HDR, and I would really like to see something similar regarding resolution, using DirectML, for games that are natively below 4K.

A change to the OS I would like is more easily accessing the volume controls while using a headset. Since the Series X update, it has been moved several positions further away. It used to be 3 positions, now it is more like 6. Why is the Gamepass (which I don't have, and refuse to ever get) button closer for me? It shouldn't even be present.

There are a million other threads where you can complain ignorantly or disingenuously about Xbox having no games. This particular thread is about hardware and UI.

VR support for Series X would be interesting. Especially for games like Microsoft Flight Simulator coming to the console later this year.

It doesnt seem silly to you that the UI is not in 4k? Sony's has been 4k since the ps4 pro and its not slow in any way.

Yep. Concern is a troll himself and regularly trolls PlayStation related threads so I find it hilarious he is trying to preach here about trolls. Best to place him on ignore.

That said, anyone who is asking for others to get banned should be a bannable offence or at least should get a warning.

Who cares If the UI isn’t 4K

I don't particularly.... But it is rather annoying leaving a game and my screen turning black for 2 seconds whilst HDR disables.

PS fans do blow it out of propertion though.

Seriously. It's always the same people, too. It's literally impossible to have an honest discussion about Xbox on here right now. Unbelievable. The "2021 and beyond" thread was an embarrassment too.

I don't even own a fucking Xbox and I'm tired of the shit. Especially when any and every low effort Sony Shitpost is guaranteed to get 12 reactions at last.

For years now I've been suspecting Sony have a stealth online team that post pro Sony and anti-competitor shit across the Internet. I continue to increase the likelihood of that in most of these threads.
