I like how people are acting like experts over stuff that they are not even working on. Why is it so hard just to wait and see if their is any results from this "Cloud Tech"? Surely you would expect MS to consider all of the possible factors that could go into play, so instead of speculating lets just wait and see.


"Cloud Tech" is just a nice way of saying "Always-online-DRM." The benefits will be miniscule, but they'll still be able to tell you that you can't play the game if you aren't online since you aren't "tapped into the power of the cloud."

:u Don't let yourselves be tricked by this blast processing nonsense.
They say she's low down, but it's just a rumor I don't believe 'em.

You can not work on something and still know how it works. You think that anyone that isn't part of Microsoft can't know what they're talking about when it comes to technology? That's like saying you can't know the first thing about special effects because you aren't working on Star Wars Episode 7.

Yes, you've noticed the "experts" too, eh? People who have nothing to do with development and design speaking with certainty about what can and can't be done.

I agree with you, wait and see what happens.

I don't consider myself a fan of Microsoft, and I find it hard to believe anything coming out of Spencer's mouth, but I'm not at the point where I'm going to consider everything Microsoft says as lies--but I'm not necessarily going to take their word for it either.

That's why I believe in the "wait and see" approach.

Really...seems this Day One Edition purchaser was "Madoff-ed by Microsoft."

I would certainly trust MS over any random conspiracy poster on Gamefaqs that's for sure.

4) If you suffer an internet outage/system goes down, the Cloud will dissipate just like....a cloud.


The only point of yours that is correct and it's a meaningless one at that since internet stability is an issue of the f***ing dial up eras.

I guess someone didn't know that Amazon was doing this since 2002....Eleven years before the launch of the Xbox One.

I think their secret weapon is just rotating hypothetical yet currently undeliverable promises.

2) Because of current ISPs limiting bandwidth, there is too much latency for it to really matter.


What isps limit bandwidth? Most have tiered pricing.

And with cable/dsl/fiber, how does that have anything to do with latency?

Are you confusing bandwidth with data caps somehow and just throwing in latency because you think it sounds good?

Do some research into net neutrality.

Context? I know about net neutrality.

Still wondering about that latency.
