D. it's a lie


It's not a lie that the Xbone will use cloud, but I do think they are lying about how it could be used.


That's the lie

Online only. No single player offline games. No developer is going to program their games to downgrade visuals/AI/physics when your connection stutters or craps out, then upgrade when your connection is good again.

"The Cloud?"

More like Smoke and Mirrors.

Another gimmick for the gimmick console, in my eyes. Even if they plan on processing everything on their end and sending it to you (which, by the way, ended up being a lie for say SimCity), most people in the USA don't have a fast enough internet (or any way to get a fast connection) to actually use it. My internet connection takes hours to download 6+ gigabyte games. Even at that relatively slow rate, it completely tanks the internet for everybody in the house, and I think we have the fastest internet we have any access to.
My argument is that ISPs need to step up or this isn't going to go anywhere. Even if it does, the same thing can be done better (and by this point, likely for cheaper) via PC gaming. Any crap PC can play any game available at max settings on OnLive, for instance. Why waste time with the cloud if you DO have the connection to receive data from it?

No need for being strictly formal on a message board, right?

Honestly, only complete suckers or people that know absolutely nothing about tech are believers.

If you believe used games are the industries problem, then you sir or ma'am are a fool.
