TNel: Because a console that just needs a ping request is the same as doing most of the game's work on the server is the same thing.  I would be really curious what percent of current 360s are always connected, I would bet a great deal of them.


Most of the things on the server? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.

No. It works fine with no connection when hacked, minus the saves. SimCity is the perfect poster child.

Flappyhead: Vaneshi: TheBlackrose: FuturePastNow: Yet the people who created Metro probably mostly still have jobs.

The people who created Metro didn't go on Twitter and tell their user base that they're farking morons for not embracing their potential design decisions.

What's even more hilarious is people in the industry blaming the internet:

Ahh, Mr. 'Cliffyb' a man who loudly VERY LOUDLY in fact stated that the Xbox 360 was his one true love and he hated those evil other platforms as they distracted from the purity of the Xbox.  Or words to that effect.

The man's a high order moron who should both ignored and forced to write software for the Xbox360 (his one true love after all) and no other platform until the day he dies.  Yes I hold a grudge, yes I am serious.  Besides, all he's capable of on the PC is crappy things like the Gears of War port... so he's best kept away from the big boy machines.

I'm sure his blog post will be as awesome as Carmack's recent splurge about why DirectX is the one true god of 3D whilst most of his peers are dusting off the Idiots Guide to OpenGL.

In other words, worth a giggle but not to be taken seriously.

Cliff just spent quite a lot of time biatching about the internet's bad behavior there.

Then ends it by saying "Well behaved people don't make history."

/hoist by his own pitard!

What is handled on the servers by Sim City, was handled by a drop down menu in Sim City 4.

Literally all it's doing is keeping a list of numbers from your other save files. These numbers include available resources.

nothing else.

I also love his "gut feeling" about always online.  I wonder if he had a similar gut feeling about the Gears of War port.

No because ea has to assume majority of people will only play for a few months and the launch day of it, and every mmo in history, will be over welled and not handle. I doubt MS would do the same with a console since most consoles will be on all the time to so it's easy to predict server load.

You know, it's great that you're already on your knees with you mouth open and eyes closed when it comes to companies treating PAYING CUSTOMERS like highway bandits, but the rest of us, you know, other consumers, have every right to biatch and moan about this. And we will. Whether they listen to us or not is irrelevant, it's the American Way. If you disagree with something, you put your farking foot down and you proclaim exactly why this shiat won't stand. Maybe you win, maybe you lose, but at least you farking tried. This meek "you'll get over it" mindset is the EXACT reason why companies like EA get away with destroying everything around them while simultaneously trying to wring all the money from our pockets with inferior products. So yeah, you keep on lapping up that frothy discharge, the rest of us are going to go shiat in their sandbox.

You mean the same servers that get crushed when a new Halo comes out, those servers? People have trouble logging in to Live, never mind playing. That would mean all those consoles are down.

And predict the load? You really think those won't be under attack all the time?
