How can you base the quality of the game depending if it's using the Cloud or not?


Error 37, look it up.

(on a side note Diablo III on PS4 is going to be playable offline)


Still got nothing to do with the quality of the game.


I believe the point they're getting at is that it's a further annoyance that you won't be able to play your game if the servers are overloaded, which has been a consistent problem with every game that does that, from the latest Sim City, to Diablo III, and many others. A natural side-effect is further getting away from the whole "Pick up and Play" aspect that consoles were once known for.

Not to mention that it doesn't matter how good a game is if you can't play it. If I was handed HL2 and during the entire time I had to review it, having not played it yet, I was unable to get it to run for a trivial reason that I could do nothing about, I would give it a horrible review since that's the kind of BS people don't want to deal with in a recreational activity. Even if I later came back once the servers were less crowded, it'd still lower the score.

JRPGs rule! Apparently, buying used games makes me a thief. I also steal cars, PCs, CDs, and DVDs. Oh yeah, JRPGs rule!

I'd prefer a CoDsole at this point. Even though Treyarch's trend of nerfs disgust me, CoD is what I spend 75% of my Xbox time doing. If they just made a console that digitally uploaded the latest CoD, I'd just buy that.

Let's face it there's enough CoD's coming out fast enough to warrant its own console. It's a freaking dynasty at this point.

So yeah put me down for a pre-order of the Console of Duty.

Well, Microsoft did boast about that humongous server space they bought.

Besides, with most gamers boycotting the Xbox One, I guess they won't have much of a problem with overloaded servers.

lol

Also, the 300,000 servers meant about as much as the 5 billion transistors. It was just a big number they could throw on the screen to make themselves look pretty.
