Procedures have been taken to prevent such measures from occurring even during games with cheating, evidence such as the new game ‘Titan Fall’ has released ‘Anti-Cheat’ methods to activate punishments to penalize players. (Griffiths, 2014) This is when the Third party seeking software has been put in place to seek out hackers or cheats during online-multiplayer.
Microsoft recently released news of a reputation system to be put in place for players in three category’s being ‘good player, needs work and bad player.’ Good Players should have no reports or complaints, Needs work after receiving these will receive warnings and encouragement to promote good behaviour. Then if the player continued would fall into the Bad Player they will be penalized by match making pairings and twitch broad casting.
The Xbox One is closed content as the code is not given to its users. I believe if it were an open content form of licensing it would be disadvantaged for these reasons:
– Easier way to Access Players Accounts
– It would be Free (Making workers suffer in containing the servers quality)
– Easier ways to take Games, Movies and Music.
The Xbox Live online system helps to keep closed content of players details secret and safe from all players.
