Is Xbox1's cloud really as good as microsoft is making it seem?

"The cloud" is to Xbox One as "blast processing" was to the Genesis.

In other words, the cloud is PR babble to sell consoles to the misinformed or uninformed. The features do have some use, but are vastly over hyped and they're really not all that impressive.

Well when I had a crappy computer I used Onlive, and I was able to play the Witcher 2 and it felt flawless.

Just like the new ac wireless standard bandwidth is holding it back.

You bet it is.

But there's more. The Xbox can download RAM too!

8GB DDR5 ram has nothing on unlimited downloadable RAM!

You guys have completely missed the point. Data analytics is a significant advantage.

There are potentially a lot of things the xbox could do with cloud processing that the ps4 cant. It isnt just about streaming video.

An example off the top of my head would be player style analysis and modifying enemy AI behavior to better match the difficulty you are playing at, or even online match making with play style criteria. This is not possible on a single device.

Nor is it necessary or interesting considering the vast amount of other private data they will likely be taking from you as well.

And it still does nothing for the console's power which is what it claims to affect.
