Over a year ago, both PSN and Xbox Live faced DDOS attacks causing major outage and more recently, the Xbox Live was down for several hours. It’s a obviously a big problem and according to Microsoft’s Larry Hryb they are doing what they can, although the problem is complicated.

“There absolutely has been [on Xbox Live outages and problems] and keeping our fans connected to the games they love is the most important thing at Microsoft. We really innovate in a lot of spaces regarding gaming and the internet such as Xbox Live. We put a network port at the back of the original Xbox a year before we knew what we are going to do with it. Everything is now connected. I don’t want to say complicated but it’s kind of. Saying Live is down is kind of an immediate response because you can’t play games and it doesn’t matter whether you can watch movies or something but Live as a whole, historically hasn’t gone down in a long time,” he said in an interview with IGN.

Larry also spoke about the recent Xbox Live issues and although he hasn’t received the full details, he revealed the team at Microsoft is working 24/7/365 to make sure the system is stable.

“I haven’t gotten the full debrief of what is happening in the past few days because I have been travelling. What a lot of folks think when it goes down is “Hey, you know what? We are at the drive through right now. We should get to the office and see what’s up.” We have a whole team and it looks like NASA . Each of the station has a different information. This is matchmaking. Here is the friends list. Here is the store. And when they see something happen they snap into action. They know before pretty much before anyone that something is going on.”

And the end of the day, he believes they hate such problems but admits some issues are more complicated than others. “Unfortunately some problems are just more complicated than others. Nobody likes it. We hate it. Nobody wants this to happen and unfortunately some issues take a bit longer to resolve.”

Moving on, Major Nelson also spoke about E3 2016, stating that they have been working on it for a few weeks. When asked what they have planned at this year’s show and whether it will make fans goes “woah!”, Larry did not revealed too much.

“Everything in my [E3] planning docs are code names so I don’t know what they are. So it could be four “WOAHs” but I just don’t know what they are. So I like to stay in the dark.”

With around three months to go for the big show, we can’t wait to see what Microsoft has in store for Xbox One and Windows 10 owners.

    Four woahs? Hmm

  • Ian Henry

    Well I hope Microsoft detract those problems so they can make Xbox live stable as possible.

    And about those 4 WOAHS my guesses are:
    1.) Battetoads – just like Sony is doing with Crash Bandicoot, Microsoft has been hinting for a while a reboot of this classic franchise and given that Microsoft owns Rare. So, Could Rare being working on a reboot alongside Sea Of Thieves?
    2.) Phantom Dust – Another franchise that Microsoft has already returned to…… But in the form of a trailer from there E3 2014 conference. Apparently, as I remembered, the original dev for the reboot was shocked about the trailer as it wasn’t even the trailer that they created and it was another dev that was actually working on the game as well therefore quoting their relationship with Microsoft. So, whatever’s with the development and progress of the game, it’s best to say that it’s MIA from the scenes.
    3.) Legacy Of Kain- I know, I know it’s probably a stupid idea given what happened with Rise Of The Tomb Raider but will it be a timed exclusive or a straight up exclusive that will also compatible with PC. Anyways, this franchise is really one of the most respected to hit gaming world with its interesting plot, great dynamic with the characters, excellent dialogue, and pretty good gameplay even to this day. I bet the crowd will go wild if it’s ever revealed for Microsoft or Sony’s conferences because this would definitely be a highlight on any gaming publication list. And this year, the franchise will hit its milestone with it being 20 years. So the possibility for the next game to be revealed at any of the conferences could be possible but we will.
    4.) Beyond Good And Evil 2 – That will be a good idea to reveal it but will it be in time for it to be seen or demoed? We do know that it’s still being developed but when will it be shown as we haven’t seen the first game since 2003 and this would be 13 years from then. So, is Ubisoft ready to present the game on here or another time?

    Well, those were my guesses for what might happen to the gaming world if they do go exceedingly ecstatic. I hope Microsoft keeps their word on keeping Xbox Live in perfect stability.

      Apparently the original creator for Phantom Dust, Yukio Futatsugi is also working on the game.
      I think they will show it off this year with some gameplay.

    Games announced far too early? Overhyped and underdelivered features? More promises and IOUs? Whoas indeed. Wonder if that “elite” KB/M for Xbone I’ve heard about turns up?

      “Games announced far too early? Overhyped and underdelivered features? More promises and IOUs? ”

      That’s just Sony’s conference for the last five years, ruggarell. The amount of games actually worth playing manages to be shorter than your recessive phallus

      Looking forward to seeing them embarrass themselves on stage with their half baked VR 🙂
