Why, yes, yes it is.

Both are stories of lies and duplicity but the scale is different.

Wasn't the cloud debunked at some point in the past for being nothing but a gimmick?

At least that's what i seem to recall reading.. someone here (or was it elsewhere?) posted an article about it but it was a while back so the details are little hazy.

Or is it actually something that can work as advertised?

Research cloud computing and stop being a schmuck. Google is free.

The cloud is not a gimmick, that does not mean that MS, or the Xbox will be able to do what they promised (I have my doubts they can, but that's a different story) However, cloud computing, big data, and analytics have huge potentials and are one of the latest trends in Software services.

Also, MS Azure servers are more than Xbox, This is Microsoft cloud offering to their clients. They have thousands of clients using these servers, and they have data centers all over the world.
