Nik Blower, PR, Marketing & Franchise Director at Nordic Games said:

“The possibilities Approxy’s system presents opens up the world of gaming to an audience previously excluded by inferior internet speeds. This is very clever tech working to broaden the whole audience and we’re proud to be supporting Approxy in reaching their goals.”

Bartu Ahiska, COO Approxy added:

“Our white-label offering is built on the industry’s most advanced, 4th generation Cloudpaging technology, which is more network efficient, scalable and inexpensive than all previous ‘Cloud Gaming 1.0’ options. Users are able to play games quickly, without install, without patching, over limited unreliable connections, or even when offline.”

This kinda reminds me of how people always assume that cloud will suck, because cloud sucks right now. From what they're saying, this seems to be more advanced than the cloud we have now. I've thought from the beginning that it would be better than the cloud available now.

majority of people on these boards are incapable of thinking down the road. They see what something is capable as of now and believe it will stay that way till the end of time.

such forward thinkers. I hope is not the standard for the younger generation or we are doomed as a society.

*sigh* pretty much. It's apparently impossible to improve upon anything.

That first bold looks like bull s***.

Second bold is nice since its cheaper.

Third bold is partial misinformation as we already have current gen games with hotfixes already that activate once you connect to the server. Unless I misread it.

Cloud streaming SOUNDS cool. * wonders what Gaikai is* if its closeto that they got something!

I'll be on this like a hawk this weekend. Too many people disregard cloud too quickly. It's annoying. As if it will be EXACTLY how it is now -_-. Didn't MS heavily invest in it? Aren't they building data centers or whatever you call those things all over the country to support it? So there wont be ANY advancements made to it huh? lol. Not even I'm that pessimistic.

Anyone know if that cloud lighting video months ago was a real thing? Could that actually happen? That'd be AWESOME in a game like...Destiny or Battlefield 4. Those two games have arguably the best lighting next gen I've seen. I'm a sucker for good lighting. That would obviously be a great thing for Dying Light. I expect GREAT lighting in that game.

What does this have to do with Microsoft's cloud? They're using their own copyrighted tech that Microsoft does not have.

Maybe because it can disprove a lot of what people have been saying is outright impossible for cloud computing?

^ That's why I posted it. So many people downplaying cloud, as if it wont be more advanced than it has been so far.
