Overdog, a free matchmaking service, is now available on Xbox One and is “coming soon to other platforms”.
“If you love Game of Thrones, the San Fransisco 49ers, The Black Keys, and OpTic Gaming, we think those factors should help determine who you play with when you sit down for a game of Call of Duty,” Overdog president Hunter Hillenmeyer told GamesBeat.
“Overdog can find the ideal gaming partner for whatever game you are about to play, and, of equal importance, we can help filter out the bad apples. A platform that makes who you are in the real world relevant to your gamer-self is long overdue.”
Now tickle me with a duster and call me Susan, but I can’t find any connection between me liking 146bpm hard house and who I want to shoot in the head in Killzone. Even if you are chatting on headsets it’s usually about the game you are playing rather than what you saw on television the previous evening.
Also what happens when Overdog matches two Manchester United fans together? Only one player can play as that team in FIFA leaving the other one miffed. What are your thoughts on the service?
