Thoughts?


Microsoft has admitted that attempts to use cloud streaming to allow Xbox 360 games to be played on Xbox One are proving "problematic".

Senior director of Xbox project management and planning Albert Penello was asked by Polygon about the possibility of the Cloud being used to power backwards compatibility, after Halo 4 was shown running on both a Windows PC and a Windows Phone during a company meeting.

I'll admit... I laughed.

As for the topic... I don't know what to think about MS right now. They've had so many issues that it just seem... strange. Blunder after blunder with many of their products the past few years and it just seems like they don't know what they really want to do anymore.

Meanwhile the "inferior" WiiU can play wii discs and digital purchases from the old system without a fancy cloud.

See, this is why Sony bought Gaikai, so they wouldn't have to code the infrastructure for game streaming themselves. It's not easy or cheap to build the infrastructure needed to stream games in the manner Onlive and Gaikai do.

Microsoft should have bought Onlive if they wanted to compete with Sony in this regard.
