    Does latency kill?


    Is latency as much as a problem to you as it is for me?

    In a nutshell: The custom Windows 10 gui deployed on the Xbox One looks great and holds much promise for upgrades. However the latency that comes with this main gui, leaves a non transparent experience when going from xbox to game.

    With playstation, PC and even Xbox PC App - I spend more time in game than in the systems custom gui due to lack of features, however Microsoft Xbox One has so many exclusive features that require you to interact with the Windows 10 gui that just has too much latency.

    I know that we've been through a lot of evolution in the gaming industry since first generation of these next gen hi tech consoles, but does the quality of the gaming experience move gamers to ignore the transparency that first generation consoles had, pop in disk and await boot logo.

    P.S, splash screens are nice, latency ruined them. I'd much rather wait like we would to the old boot logos than to wait on a splash screen for 20-60 seconds.

    Also I understand that these consoles only have so much memory and the ability to interact with all of OS features without forfeiting your running game is a great advancement and latency should be expected in this scenario.

    Has Microsoft lost the plot with Xbox one?

    "I was told uk users have to share latency speeds now, this is unacceptable and unfair."

    What does this even mean? Latency is not something you "share" per se. You and your neighbor may have the same latency but there are so many factors that contribute to latency that there may be different reasons for you and your neighbors latency. You
    may have latency in common but not shared.

    Confirmation that there IS a FAULT on UK/European Server

    The dashboard latency test is meaningless. It has nothing to do with your gaming experience. You will not be playing games connected to the latency test server.

    The Xbox does not control your latency. Latency is purely determined by the location of the game server you are connecting to, and the route it takes to get there.

    Try to play on servers in your own region if you are worried about latency.

    It does, but my latency is really bad without it.

    High latency issues

    @Necroticatrophy

    A high latency in the network tab can give a false positive as it might be trying to ping the Xbox servers in Washington.

    As long as you are not experiencing any lag you shouldn't pay attention to the latency as it does not resemble in game latency

    Latency issues

    Does your NAT show as "OPEN" ? Also the latency shown on the Xbox One does not represent an accurate reading as it does not ping the nearest server but the servers in Redmond
