Xbox One Cloud Updates Result In “Problematic” Reboots During Gameplay
Posted on Wednesday, November 6 @ 07:38:58 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
The power of the cloud brings with it many advantages but also some significant setbacks. According to Xbox Live lead program manager John Bruno, automatic cloud updates on Xbox One will result in the system rebooting, interrupting whatever the user is doing at the time.
Bruno explained during a GDC Next presentation:
This could especially prove to be a problem for those playing Titanfall, a game that reportedly relies heavily on the cloud. Speaking to Respawn's game specifically, Bruno went on to confess that Microsoft doesn't have a solution, as the game's cloud integration is primarily in the hands of the developer.
Here's to hoping Microsoft manages to remedy this issue sooner rather than later. Rebooting mid-game without warning will certainly piss more than just a few gamers off.
