Games For Windows Live Will Continue To Live On

In a plot twist, it appears Microsoft will continue to run and support Games for Windows Live despite all the recent rumors about its apparent demise. The rumors had both been widespread and rampant since August of last year and Microsoft had not officially released a word about it until now. The huge delay had meanwhile caused a lot of implications, with most developers abandoning the servers and migrating to Steamworks.

Gamers were upset for months; unhappy about the indecision from Microsoft and the confusion due to the migration of some games while other games stayed put. When Microsoft’s own game Studio Twisted Pixel released information about the migration to Steamworks, most gamers had believed it to be official confirmation for the long believed rumour. However, Microsoft recently decided to bash the rumor by saying, “We are continuing to support the Games for Widows Live service. We remain committed to investing in PC gaming in the years ahead, and look forward to sharing more in the future.” This dialog not only denies any news about the end of support of GFWL but also informed users about the fact that Microsoft will not stop this service any time in the near future. To get more information about the same, you may contact our Windows Live Chat Support.

The decision from Twisted Pixel to abandon GFWL and move its matchmaking, sharing user-created content and features to Steamworks, the arch rival of GFWL, came in recently. Moreover, the rumor was started not by third party sources or unknown informants. This action was displayed in Age of Empires Online Support page. Moreover, the support article even mentioned a deadline of July 1, 2014 for the end of service. However, later confirmation from spokesperson from Microsoft was never received.

Windows Live Game Server

The company officials recently said, “Although customers are unable to purchase new games from the marketplace or receive title updates, they can continue to enjoy previously purchased content by downloading them through the Games for Windows Live client as usual.” Moreover it has been hinted that Microsoft will be looking into going to different avenues, ever since Phil Spencer, the head of Microsoft’s Xbox division informed that Microsoft’s focus has shifted towards, “a renewed focus on Windows and PC gaming.” Moreover, he had even highlighted that Microsoft will not be competing with Valve and will seek to branch out to different venues. Contact our Windows Live Chat Support for more information about the same.

This statement was provided back in March this year and Phil did include that “you will get a clear answer from us very soon.” However, the recent action from Microsoft has confused users as to what the company sought to gain from losing innumerous games from its server.

Voice Chat Between Xbox One And Xbox 360 Not Possible

Windows Live Chat Support

Xbox Live Chat Features

It seems that there will not be any Windows Live chat support for linking Xbox One and Xbox 360. Ever since the release of Xbox One, gaming enthusiasts have been waiting to combine both these popular consoles to establish multiplayer gaming networks online. However, the lack of Windows Live chat support between the two might have spoiled these plans.

Why voice chat between Xbox One and Xbox 360 is not possible?

Microsoft intended to make Xbox One the best gaming console available in the market. Keeping this in mind, they started working on improving the Kinect motion-sensing device, the sound systems, the graphics output, and so on. The result was a gaming console that is technologically much superior to Xbox 360. And, because of this reason, there are a few incompatibility issues between the two consoles.

For example, according to Microsoft, the voice chat system used in Xbox One is much different than that in Xbox 360. The data transfer rate in the new gaming console is higher than that in Xbox 360. All such technological differences have made it impossible to have a live video chat session between the two devices. However, this does not mean they cannot play multiplayer games online.

Both Xbox One and Xbox 360 can be connected to the Xbox Live network and you can enjoy multiplayer games and other entertainment available on the service. Nevertheless, if you want to start a chat session with your friend on the other end, you have to use the text messaging option. The cool party chat options will only work with the same generation consoles.

Voice Chat System

About Xbox Live Audio Chat

According to Microsoft Xbox website, Xbox 360 headsets are set to work with a data transfer rate of 16 KHz for downstream data and 8 KHz, made possible by applying 14-bit compression. However, in Xbox One, the need of data compression is removed and the data transfer takes place at 24 KHz at an uncompressed 16-bit resolution.

So, clearly, there are a lot of differences between the voice data transfer technology used in the two consoles. But, Microsoft needs to reconsider this and come up with some solution to make cross-platform audio chat service available, as their main rival, Sony, has made it possible with PS4 and PS3 without any compatibility issues already.

Has Skype Managed To Enthrall Windows Live Messenger Users?

Windows Live Chat Support

Contact Windows Live Chat Support

More than a year ago, Microsoft had ditched its popular instant messaging application, Windows Live Messenger and adopted Skype. The announcement was a shock for most Windows Messenger users who flocked over to the Windows live chat support team to know about the authenticity of the news. Eventually, the software giant discarded the services for Windows Live Messenger and started promoting Skype among its users.

Skype is definitely a much more advanced messaging service as compared to Windows Live Messenger. But it does not have certain features that were there in Microsoft’s extinct messaging service. Among these features, the one most missed by users is the option to be notified when the person receives a new mail in his/her messenger account. There’s also no option to change chat font and color font for the personal chats as well as for the chat window. Along with this, the users also don’t have the option to disable camera completely from Skype (some users even want that.)

When Microsoft had first announced the termination of Windows Live Messenger to promote Skype, internet analysis firm Comscore had stated that the instant messenger still had almost double the number of Skype users. Reports also suggested that the percentage of Skype users were increasing every year compared to that of Windows Live Messenger, which was witnessing a fall in the user share. It is probably this scenario that made Microsoft come to such a decision.

Advanced Chat Service

Windows Live Chat Features

At the time when Windows Live Messenger was going to get stopped, Brian Blau from Gartner had stated that “When a company has competing products that can result in cannibalization it’s often better to focus on a single one. Skype’s top-up services offer the chance to monetize its users and Microsoft is also looking towards opportunities in the living room. Messenger doesn’t seem like an appropriate communications platform for TVs or the firm’s Xbox console – but Skype does.” The technicians at Windows Live chat support also insisted the users to move onto Skype to experience the advanced chat service.

Coming back to the missing Windows Live Messenger features in Skype, the application also doesn’t comprise of the option to use animated avatars and also to share pictures among the users.

Well, it is certain that in the near future, Microsoft will definitely add more interesting options to Skype in order to make it the most used messaging application in the world.
