A game is now out of sync with its data files on the PS3 and Xbox 360, leading some to worry that the integrity of its online multiplayer might be compromised.
That’s because the game’s data is stored in the PS Store, and the Xbox Live database is stored on a separate server.
The PS4 has more than 1,300 online games, but the Xbox 360 has only about 300.
Microsoft is working to resolve this by bringing its online service to the Xbox One and bringing the games back online, the company said in a blog post on Wednesday.
A patch has been released, but it hasn’t yet been accepted by Microsoft’s servers.
The Xbox 360 database also is affected by the game servers being unable to sync their online database.
“Unfortunately, this is the second time this has happened,” said Sony’s chief information officer, John Gribbin, in the blog post.
“We hope this is a temporary problem and we’ll be back online soon.”
The PS3 database is also affected.
“The PS3 is not affected by this issue,” said Microsoft’s chief operating officer, Brian Behlendorf, in a statement.
“Our databases are not affected.
However, as a precautionary measure, we have restored online play to a number of PlayStation 3 titles.
If you experience any issues while online, please contact us.
We’d love to hear from you!”
Microsoft’s troubles are not limited to online multiplayer, either.
On Thursday, Sony also posted that it has restored online multiplayer for some of its games.
“Online play on PlayStation 4 is back online for some games,” Sony said in the post.
Microsoft also confirmed that some of the games it’s working on for the Xbox one will be coming back online.
The company is working on some of those games as well, it said.
