Graphical is not one of them. Interesting to see the other side of debate. And if I'm not qualified, then the designer of the PS4 himself is. But at best? it's not very reliable as it's dependent on a persons internet quality.

Editor note.
Cloud computing can somehow free resources to be used with graphics, but thatís an entirely different story altogether: if you offload elements like AI, limited physics, world simulation and similar to cloud computing, the local machine has more resources that can indeed be dedicated to rendering visuals.

The catch is that those elements offloaded to the cloud need to have a very limited data footprint. Larger data footprints will result in interfering with bandwidth to be used for online gaming and connectivity, and even more so will cause the game to be overly reliant on the quality of the internet connection, severely limiting what developers can do with it.

Well, I have to give it to Microsoft, they left the door wide open to blame the customer if the quality isn't what they promised or inferred it would be.

My thoughts exactly ^

hardwarewise xbone is doing pretty bad when compare to ps4. 720p? I think that is why xbone badly need this hoax.

So this just confirms what people with common sense have been saying. The cloud is complete BS.

I wouldn't go that far...it's just the whole truth isn't being told.

Why is a Sony article on the XBOX forums? Please begone with your trashy article.
Flagged.

Flag it all you like, it is about a feature of the Xbox One which makes it on topic...Sorry Charlie, try again.

Can you not read? I dunno where the hell you got Charlie from Combo626. Maybe that's why the cloud isn't working for you, you need glasses.
