Xbox Live Real Names Won't Be Ready For Xbox One At Launch

Posted on Wednesday, October 16 @ 09:30:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Microsoft has announced that you won't be able to use your real name on Xbox Live when its next-gen console launches in November. However, the company is still planning to add this feature down the line.

"Our teams are working hard to deliver a quality experience for Xbox One. This means prioritizing some features and sometimes postponing others for a later update."

Considering all that has to be ready in time for launch, it's not surprising that a few things here and there won't be ready on day one. With online ecosystems being such a major part of the experience in today's day and age, there's so much more for console manufacturers to worry about than just hardware and games.
