My Name's Nathan.
I am just searching to find out, what Xbox Live really is?
I have been to various of sources and they just state what Xbox Live is, but not, what it is. (if you get me?)
I mean - do Xbox Live game run on Xbox Live servers? - when playing call of duty , I have had trouble with time out issues - yet this doesn't effect whether I'm logged into Xbox Live or not?
What I'm trying to find out is... are matches hosted on Xbox Live servers?
Or are matches just Peer 2 Peer? - various games have "Hosts" - which suggest peer to peer?(not forgetting I'm no networking graduate(really, I have no clue about networking(just read a book once))).
I wouldn't imagine game studios paying 100's of millions of pounds out of servers - however, I could be wrong.
so, yeah... Thanks for your time.
