For now, we have 'drivitars' on forza 5, but what can we truly and realistically expect to see from cloud computing in future games?? Has it been overhyped?

Propaganda at its finest... The cloud is incredibly limited by many things not the least of which being bandwidth limitations

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.

As true today as it was 6 months ago.

There is no indication whatsoever that the cloud will be anything but dedicated servers and data storage so far.

It cannot be used for single player gaming, seeing as an internet connection is now not required. Maybe with always on things may have been difference, but now i can only see it used for multiplayer stuff

Have any future titles been announced to make use of it or any reasonable rumours of it?
