    Next gen consoles' networks in shammbles? Barely able to get online at launch?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6h9l5Gb5hE

    So the guy on this video says he has reliable sources....but does not tell who they are...and says that he was told by them that:

    1. COD will be 720p on both X1 and PS4 due to the fact that the network will be in the crapper for both systems....but will run native 1080p on the WiiU

    2. The reason the X1 network is in shammbles is b/c they had to rework it and basically build it from the ground up again after they decided to change the DRM feature

    3. The PS4's network will be in the same boat b/c they apparently were going to have a DRM feature like MS but after they saw the outcry from gamers when MS released the info about theirs....they kept it under wraps and acted like they were the hero. And now...they are basicaly building it from the ground up b/c of the same thing.

    Also...the feature that the Day 1 patch will disable is the DRM feature

    The specifics might not be exact but basically thats what the guy said. Frankly....I don't care. I'm getting a PS4 b/c Sony STILL seems to be the one that tries to create original games and has more of a variety of them when compared to MS/Xbox.

    Sorry if this is old or if this has been disproven or anything like that.....just figured it was decent news and some of you would want to hear about it.

    These articles are starting to make me laugh.. Tom, Dick and Harry trying to gain some rep from bullshit. Not you Op, but people creating these rumours.

    Like they'd release consoles in such a state. I don't believe it. There will be problems but nothing severe in my opinion.

    Yeah right. i think the only problem we will experience is servers getting stressed with all the gamers online and couple unseen bugs. I bet both will have 1080 for cod.

    You can tell this is trying to even the playingfield between both systems. It isn't working but it's an attempt from the video.

    Whoa whoa.....you need to tone it down a bit. I'm not "trying" to do anything. I just figured it was a pretty important story. I mean....if it's true that would really.....really suck.

    I hope it's not and I have no way of knowing if it is.....I just thought it was interesting and some might be interested in hearing it.

    Network affecting the resolution of the game?

    netcode runs through the CPU, not the GPU. dropping the res does not equate to greater online connectivity. you can't 'magic' an internet connection by slowing down the GPU.

    Doom Mongering. Thats what this is.

    On the one hand, yeah, there's probably a lot of hyperbole in that. On the other hand, Call of Duty Elite, GTA Online, Twitter for years, freaking Obamacare exchange enrollment. Large systems rarely handle launch loads or significant usage spikes very well. Expect rollout inconveniences, be pleasantly surprised when they're not as bad as you -- or this YouTube nut -- imagined.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Sony has such a system in place but all that sort of stuff these days is for the most part modular. It's not quite as simple as flipping a switch, but it is as simple as decoupling the DRM modules from the overall architecture. It's not a ground-up reengineering job. It's just a feature change. Software changes features all the time. Big features, even. It didn't break the whole trophy system to make trophy notification optional, or to later patch that to change trophy notification settings by individual game. And in general the trophy system, let's face it, has never been exactly the most rock solid PSN feature. If something's going to break fooling with it, the trophy system is going to break.

    Also bear in mind YouTube is not a reliable source of anything. YouTube is a great place to watch cute 20-something girls play earnest folksy acoustic covers of Katy Perry songs and... Well, maybe Avril Lavigne songs, too.

    Well, I'd agree that there will likely be some problems, due to the massive amounts of people. But as it helps that it's launching on different dates, so shouldn't be as bad by the time it's out in the UK.

    It would not be unheard of but the epitome of poor system design that the DRM modules could not be easily extricated.

    Sad if true.

    Lol, are people still talking about this? I'd say anything I say would be just as credible as this guy.

    FYI if you've watched His channel for any period of time, you'd know that he is pretty anti next gen and takes Wii U's side on most things.

    Yep. Not merely poor, but pure idiocy in my book. But I didn't mention that scenario because I assume -- dangerous game, assuming, but it makes sense in this case -- all the DRM in the CURRENT network for only PS3 is modular and can be easily modified because of that. It was easy for Sony to cut 5 device activations down to 2. Of course that's just an editable constant in some database field, but still changing that constant has system-wide ramifications. Besides I figure dating back to XBL for 360 and PSN for PS3 both companies built and continued building all sorts of DRM components -- weak, strong, in between -- and tested them, so they could plug them in at any time. MS plugged theirs in for Xbox One and then unplugged it. Sony perhaps plugged theirs in for PS4 and unplugged it, or maybe just never plugged it in and kept it waiting on the shelf: If Microsoft's original model Xbox One flag had flown, Sony would have raised their own similar PS4 flag. That flag very definitely did not fly, so Sony just left theirs on the shelf.

    This didn't originate from Gaf or Cboat so it can't true. I wonder if people would believe it if it was just about one console.

    Its youtube, anyone can post on Youtube. On Gaf its not as easy, and its more than just CBOAT.

    Though, wasnt it reportedly confirmed CoD is 1080P on PS4? And according to Gaf XBL is having issues with the complexity of the three OS's
