Microsoft Claims that Cloud Computing Can Provide Power of 3 Xbox Ones

Real time processing vs offloaded processing real time wins. They already have latency and bottleneck issues because of DDR3, using the cloud would exacerbate this. The only reason they are pushing "the cloud" so heavily is because it effectively brings back the always online drm by arguing that the cloud is needed for essential processing tasks.


Fanboys ignore this, or they are ignorant about the limitations of the cloud.

Everyone in this topic please look up the McLaren P1...

Read up on how that car works and how the 'electric' motor helps the car and its performance of its 'combustion' motor...

Pretty much the same 'kinda' thing that this cloud computing would be with any console...

Please come back and respond, thanks...


If the P1's electric motors had internet levels of latency they'd be completely useless, the whole point is instant response to provide torque fill while the turbos spool. The electric motors are also considerably weaker than the combustion engine, and will quite rapidly run out of charge without the engine running to recharge them.

There are also many other manufacturers who offer hybrid electric powertrains, which actually is an apt reflection of 'the cloud' since the most prominent usage on XB1 so far was with a multiplatform game that had the same functionality on all.

Directly no, but the idea is the offsetting of resources to the cloud like AI, physics, etc. In theory, doing so will free up enough resources locally to improve the X1's rendering of graphics.

The power of clouds will bring E3 to its knees.

Jesus thanks for saying this! They are urging developers to buy into the cloud to put the more rudimentary processes on the cloud to offset some of the load. Therefore leasing up some power to be put towards visuals and other pretty things.

Obviously they won't put important things that are REQUIRED TO PLAY on the cloud. That's idiotic. Both systems are next-gen and great. But I don't believe MS would knowingly make their hardware worse than their competitor, without knowing if they could make it at least as good or better.

Call it an ace up the sleeve if you will.
