Was Cloud Processing a lie made to deceive gamers?

Cloud processing is OLD tech. It has been around a long time. It was spread by people that realized that MS Fanboys are not the smartest people in the bunch (latency, bandwidth, availability of high speed internet, etc).


Precisely.

Clearly it was all a lie since they aren't doing it at launch.

It's the new blast processing.

It's not a *lie*, but it doesn't do what people think it does.

I love the use of the cloud in forza 5, for racing its great.


My first reply answered this, its used and I like it. I don't see a racing game on ps4 doing this, its very cool and makes single player racing fun. If they use it with traffic cars on forza horizon 2 it will be amazing.

No, it wasn't a lie. People are just ignorant and don't understand what it is and seriously overestimated it's abilities.


MS themselves made statements about having like 3 additional Xbox One's in terms of power through cloud computing, so they are the ones misleading people. On top of that, it's a useless technology. It requires a fast and stable online connection and is most likely complex to program.

I see it as a huge waste of money for gimmick that only has marketing purposes. They might as well have just put in a stronger graphics card... on the other hand, it just would've been a PS4 with a different brand name in that case, from a technical point of view.
