Never, it is a marketing ploy used by Phil Harrison and Major Nelson in order to get peoples money. People with brains saw right through it.

Billions of little transistors LOL.

Most likely never, same as with the 6GB of textures in the eSRAM.

All of it sounds really cool, but it's all just theory, it's not possible in reality.

DigitalFoundry did an interesting article on it, with an in depth look at what it's going to do.

Their conclusion was pretty clear:

What's obvious at this point is that the concept of cloud computing looks uncertain and unlikely, and Microsoft needs to prove its claims with actual software. Yet based on what we've been told, the firm itself isn't sure of what uses to put it to, while the limitations of latency and bandwidth severely impede the benefits of all that computing power.

See that cloud over your house? It does the same thing for your games - nothing.

It is up to developers. Respawn said its great and the reason they limed the One. Thats all we really know.


Except their game is coming out for the Xbox360 and PC.

The only thing respawn is using the cloud for is dedicated servers. Nothing else.

the CLOUD is already being used. Nvidia released NVIDIA GRID beta on nvividia shield a few days ago. This allows you to play games from Nvidia's PC that's streaming from San Jose, California. Im guessing this is cloud usage...idk. I know im playing games being streamed from 2000 miles away and using nvidias computer graphic power.

Dedicated servers eradicate the problems associated with player hosted servers, Shiring said, as well as grant other benefits. "You can get even more CPU on your dedicated servers to do new things like dozens of AI and giant autopilot titans," he said. Matchmaking is "lightning fast" and the player experience is "so much better".

"The Xbox group came back to us with a way for us to run all of these Titanfall dedicated servers and that lets us push games with more server CPU and higher bandwidth, which lets us have a bigger world, more physics, lots of AI, and potentially a lot more than that!"


So yeah, Titanfall uses the cloud not just for dedicated servers but autopilot Titan mechs, tons of NPCs and some other stuff. Something that DICE has expressed interest in.

They use it like MMOs use it. Nothing new or exciting.

EA has their own servers and Sony does for certain games, so if it's only the servers that help then it's not limited to the Xbone then.
