Xbox Live "Totally Unacceptable" for Free-To-Play Games
CEO of Wargaming Victor Kislyi has been quite honest in his appraisal of Microsoft’s online gaming service with regards to free-to-play titles.
Speaking with Polygon at PAX Australia, Kislyi said that the arduous certification process Microsoft enforces for Xbox Live updates doesn’t work well with the free-to-play model.
“The good thing is with online games, sometimes if you screw up, you can do frequent updates,” Kislyi said. “But one of the biggest challenges with Microsoft was the frequency of updates because the QA process and certification process takes an extremely long time. Totally unacceptable for a meaningful free-to-play. We are working with them to do quicker updates.”
