        Robust matchmaking that can orchestrate fair and fun multiplayer sessions is a key way to differentiate your title from others on Xbox LIVE or other platforms. In this talk, we discuss some of the fundamental challenges around getting high-quality matches, explore the existing Xbox LIVE matchmaking mechanisms in detail, and introduce Weighted Search—a new way of performing matchmaking that allows developers more control over result ordering. A preview of Weighted Search was used by Bungie to create the matchmaking system in Halo Reach, and the core technology is now available in the Xbox 360 Developer Kit. We'll discuss how Weighted Search works, and how game developers can most effectively consume this technology.
