@Vundar9115 said in Why XBOX servers and PC Must be separate.:
A small bug on the forum. After deleting a topic, it remains with the deleted message and no edit posible after 5000 seconds. Without carefully thinking, I wrote simple cheat methods that are possible using a PC. I cleaned the message in accordance with the rules of the forum:
When I played PSO, cheaters appeared on our server and simply killed the interest in the game. The fact is that it will be very easy to make cheats on a PC. So the players from the console lose a lot in terms of character leveling, because on the XBOX there are no programs that record the actions of the gamepad or etc. That's why the servers should be separate so that players with XBOX do not lose interest in the game due to the characters of cheaters from the PC. Even if certain cheaters appear on the xbox, they can be blocked by the console. They can’t just change their IP, like on a PC, and continue their business, hoping to sell cheat earned game money and items for real money in future. Developers can leave the game option by subscribing to XBOX LIVE GOLD or take some amount per month from the players so that they have earnings. It's my opinion.
I'm a Console and PC player and I understand the point your getting out for the Console Side but please do understand that any kind of "Cheating" on Pso2 isn't really do able, I'm not going to say it can't be done as anything can be done in this day and age but I can say that the pso2 team is always watching for cheaters/hackers and will make sure it won't happen. It's a good idea that the game will be crossplay as myself I have lots of friends on Xbox and PC that I'd love to game with and it wouldn't be as great knowing that I couldn't do that. As for crossplay server wise, They will likely do what they did on the JP Servers and make Blocks where it's only for Xbox Players or PC Players, So in the end you will be able to enjoy the game ether way you want (Crossplay or Not).
As for "Gold Farmers" I didn't even know this was a issue on PC Servers but I mean, This happens even on Xbox with games that are like pso2. It won't change much with making it locked to Xbox Servers only as Gold Farmers will just do the same thing on Xbox, Just look at how ARK is on Xbox.
