PostSubject: Steam for Xbox 360?   Sat Feb 05, 2011 10:45 pm

This was from a topic on Amazon.

Quote :
Recently an announcement confirmed the inclusion of a new technology integrated into shitbox Live. The news revealed the compatibility of RakNet's Networking technology which can seamlessly host many of the features that currently exist on the shitbox Live, and add more.

Congratulations to Mr. Jenkins and his very flexible networking technology, more congrats to shitbox 3shitty fans who may be getting one of the coolest addition to shitbox Live since its launch. This inclusion also reveals some cool possibilities that can now become available to shitbox gamers. The most amazing feature is the one that offers Steam integrations, a feature recently add to the Playstation 3 via RakNet's Networking solution. here are a list of features RakNet adds to gaming networks.



Natively integrated features are:

* Lobby and room matchmaking
* Network address traversal connectivit
* Use of Steam servers for forwarding traffic


Does this mean Steam on shitbox 3shitty, it's real possibility. Though, no official announcement has been made by Microsoft, we expect Microsoft to announce more later this year. Read more about Microsoft and RakNet right here.

If this is indeed true then this is great news for 3shitty owners, especially in light of the special treatment the buttsex version of Portal 2 is receiving. Hopefully with this Valve would be able to do the same thing with the 3shitty, or even better patch it in at a later date.

Still this does seem rather likely since Microsoft has been criticized for quite some time now about their policies and servers for Live and this would definitely allow developers more control over their games and the content released for it.

Also I'm hoping this will be the start of the feature war I think Microsoft and Sony are about to get in. I'm thinking this year we're going to see them competing to outdo and copy one another by adding in more features for PSN+ and shitbox Live Gold.

Thoughts?

EDIT: My words are changed. Wow...

Lol on the faces of the PS3 fanboys when they and if it does happen.

MS hopefully will put steam or steam cloud to Live.

Not a big deal, really. Nor was it for the PS3. I have Steam on my PC and it works just fine.

Sold like crap and going off the Bioware forum, there were a heap of technical issues such as game freezing, corrupt save files etc. People who said that ME2 PS3 is a beta for ME3 were actually correct after all.
