Xbox One interview: Marc Whitten talks about the big picture

After a whirlwind of a day, packed with on-stage presentations, behind the scenes tours, hardware demos, and interviews, I finally sat down to my final appointment, and interview with the Xbox boss-man himself, Marc Whitten.
Whitten is one of Microsoft's corporate vice presidents, but more importantly he is the chief product officer for the Xbox brand. Within the Microsoft corporate structure, he is the top of the Xbox hierarchy. (Industry, Tech, Xbox One)

The big picture is the cloud and cloud gaming.

Everytime you speak of the magic cloud power, a puppy dies.

Just stop, man.

I disagree, but funny.

Still cant admit that the XBOX One is weaker than the PS4?

Dont worry i understand but sooner or later you will just have to accept the truth, that cloud computing is just a XBOX fans fantasy because they know that the PS4 has better hardware than the XBOX One so they make it seem that their console will be more powerful with the cloud.

The Cloud will hardly do anything to "upgrade" the console over time as they had mentioned. Average Internet speed in the US is 8mbps or 1 Mb/s while the bandwidth of the system itself is measured in the tens of Gb/s. I guess we could settle for the static lighting they were talking about.

Google fiber needs to roll out fast :p
Qrphe  +   689d ago
Even then that's 700mbps as per Google claims (which is around 90 Mb/s). That doesn't come close to quadrupling the performance of 68,000 Mb/s as MS claimed.

Qrphe,LOL, you really have no clue what your talking about!

We need Sony's ISP from Japan. 2.4Gbps:)

Obviously not being rude but the engineers at Microsoft know more than us. They way your talking about isn't the way it works. Let me put it this way Gaikai is streaming the entire game at 5-10Mbps while Xbox cloud only does a small part like physics, lighting, and A.I. Those are far less computional. The milliseconds lag here isn't going to be noticeable by us especially with it being lag insensitive parts of the game. As theInternet improves the cloud becomes more practical. Thus better and better all the time.

Idk if Gaikai is capable of offloading lag insensitive parts of a game rather than streaming the entire game but I would thank and hope I can.

@kratos_kills pretty much nailed it.

Am i the only one that got no drm out that interview?

I think the big secret is going to be letting you sell your game online for ms points that you can use for another games..

Smart if you ask me.. If true gamestop will have to start adjusting their crazy prices for games.

But what if I want to sell it for cash? I might not want Microsoft points.
buynit  +   688d ago
Then i guess you go to game stop and get your $10 in cash..
edonus  +   688d ago
If I am not mistaken they have confirmed to be getting rid of MS points.

They have said they have crested an entire network that retailers and gamers are a part of. I think thing will be just be how it is implemented.
