ďOnce in a while, rather frequently actually, the host OS will require an update, MEANING THE PHYSICAL MACHINE IS GOING TO GET REBOOTED, whether your code is running or not. Thatís a problematic thing for a game, and is oftentimes is in the middle of a multiplayer session, weíve worked very hard to overcome that, but thatís not to say itís going to be a reality in every case.Ē
I mean SERIOUSLY. The article title and thread link even contain the exact words "REBOOT YOUR CONSOLE" When the Microsoft Defense Force is left with no alternative but to distort the truth, you KNOW they are really sweating! Either that or they don't read, and then complain that others don't read, LOL.
Link thread, yes. Now when you look at the title it says "Xbox One cloud updates may reboot host server mid-session, says Microsoft exec"
Host Server... Not your console. Everything in the actual article mentions host sever, host OS (meaning the physical sever OS), and not your personal console that my reboot.
Which is still problematic being cut off mid-session for a server update, but they could easily create a scheduled downtime at off hours to have less of an impact.
A word to the wise ain't necessary - it's the stupid ones that need the advice
"We're learning more and more about the Xbox One every day, but it seems not everything we hear is going to be good. Case in point: the Xbox One can reportedly reboot automatically when it receives an OS update from the cloud, even if you're in the middle of something - including playing a game."
That says THE XBOX ONE REBOOTS, not THE HOST SERVER REBOOTS. Get your heads out of the sand.
