Microsoft Partners With Limelight to Improve Xbox Live Networking

Microsoft announced a partnership with Limelight Networks, a competitor of Akamai (which Sony and Nintendo use) to deliver better media streaming to Xbox Live. Live users will benefit from Limelight’s better servers and pipelines when downloading music, movies and games, an increasingly important part of Microsoft’s online service. Limelight powers Facebook and MySpace, so you can trust them to get this big job right.

  1. Okay Limelight.. I don’t think XBOX live has ever worked with AKAMAI? The XBOX team has relied on friends of friends for their network sometimes to the detriment of the service.
