Re: Small E3 Xbox Prediction

In Response To: Re: Small E3 Xbox Prediction (DEEP NNN)

: Imagine all of those misbehaving gamers in MM and nothing much to lose for
: being that way. Sounds like a total BK fest.

: You sure you want that?

Does that remotely represent the reality? XBL Gold does basically nothing to improve people's behaviour, because Microsoft doesn't like banning paying customers. Actually, the only times I've seen anything remotely resembling community behaviour management have been on PC, where people managing community servers sometimes ban people for whatever reason. Servers which also sometimes improve networking performance substantially over what you see with XBL peer-to-peer. Sure, some community managers are jerks... which you can deal with in online infrastructures like that by using the custom game/server browser to join a different subcommunity.

XBL sort of meant something ten years ago, at least in the console space, but these days it's a cartoonish scam.
