We recently saw some pretty amazing new updates to the Xbox Live feature. There is rumor that they are looking to change the interface even more. This could potentially make the gap between Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony even greater.
Xbox has time and time again updated and altered it’s Xbox Live service. Sony is yet to even get the PS3 an online feature. Sure it has great graphics but that won’t sell the system in this age. Microsoft is apparently looking to exploit this and make the interface even better.
“Want to be involved in the next release of Xbox? Join the server-backed games team, part of the Xbox Live team that’s responsible for creating a completely new way for mainstream audiences to enjoy the Xbox and Live. We’re building the games, the console interface and logic, and the server support for a totally new Live experience. Both the games and the dashboard experience will be deeply paired with dynamic server support to create a compelling, fresh scenario each time.”
What could this mean? Nobody is exactly sure what to expect from this. From my knowledge I am expecting some sort of “clan” system as suggested by Bungie a few months ago when answering the question of whether or not Halo 3 will start using the clans again. They said no, however if Microsoft were to decide to start using a clan system they would make it compatible. As many of you know Bungie used to be owned by Microsoft.
