For those of you too young to remember, back during the Genesis/SNES console war sega would drop the term "Blast Processing!" in all of its ads to show how the Genesis was faster and more powerful than the SNES. As well all know now they were full of crap but diehard Sega fans (myself among them) latched on to the term any time Nintendo vs Sega was brought up.

I love how many reassurance topics there have been since Titanfall was announced to be exclusive because of Cloud and then MS announced it was free to everyone.

Funny thing is, these same people were trying to say how Gaikai was amazing and "the fastest cloud ever!" until they realized what it was and so now "Cloud is useless!"

Well Cloud is a real thing used by many companies and MS overstated its power compared to Blast Processing which isn't really anything

LOL two dudes chatting on IGN = proof? Also, who said it isn't going to be multiplat? Did you even see the video? It says that it doesn't matter if its a timed exclusive, people will want the game when its out and not wait for a random amount of time.

Respawn is far more credible than this IGN video made with outdated info. If it becomes multiplat, it will be because Sony gave them free servers. Right now its exclusive because they couldn't afford to make it on PS4. That was some serious reassurance...

So first it's not happening now it's "It doesn't matter"
Which one is it.. your waffling is getting ridiculous.

Who said its not happening? Are you high or something or did you just run out of arguments?

Does the cloud really matter when Sony is going to implement more or less the same thing (Gaikai)???

So basically, you made something up and when asked for proof, you make up more stuff? On the PS4 board, I specifically say that Titanfall can easily become multiplat if Sony just pays for the servers but that first, we don't even know that its a good game, something it has yet to prove.

How much more would you like to own yourself?
