Xbox One Still Has Cloud Features for First Party Games, Committed to Digital in a "Big Way"

"Microsoft Games Studios head recently addressed concerns about the company's Xbox One policy, following the about-turn the company took two days ago when it announced that there would no longer be any periodic check-ins, region locks or restrictions on used games." (Xbox One)

So you HAVE to be online when playing first-party games.

THE CLOUD... lol.
NYC_Gamer  +   958d ago
Where does it say that at?he is just saying that MS first party software will support cloud features.
Blackdeath_663  +   958d ago
but to use those cloud features you need a constant online connection, which is fine when those features are mostly used to add to the multiplayer(because you need internet to play online anyways) but lets say for example "the cloud makes the xbox one more powerful" as MS claims this implies that the cloud will allow for games to be made on the xbox one that wouldn't be able to run without said "power of the cloud" that would mean those games will need a constant internet connection. so people with bad ISP's or internet connections are screwed. now then, will games that require that cloud be able to be traded in and bought used? i doubt it because servers are expensive to run and maintain especially ones that power the cloud therefore game+cloud=constant internet connection + possibility of drm.

so ultimately the claim that the cloud makes your console more powerful is either a lie or it is indeed true but with the possibility of drm now if MS came out and said this at the very start DRM doesn't sound so bad and people would accept it if they knew they would get better quality games but they didn't nor is there any proof that the cloud makes your games any better the two current examples are sim city and diablo3 both of which were disasters hence the backlash. if MS made this clear and gave examples of a game running better on the cloud they would have been the ones to carry gaming to the future instead they dug themselves a hole so deep they had to reverse their policies in order to make their way out

Yeah give me the choice for sharing with DD games, it also sounds like alot of devs are going the route of tuning the game experience to perform better when you're online which is incentive enough for me to be always connected so I can reap any benefits of the cloud however small or large it might be. No new effort on my part since I'm already always connected.

CoD is still 3rd party.

@ Blackdeath_663

Good points with Diablo III & SimCity

But when I read this it, sounds like M$ is using a slight of words again. Why does this console sound like it will have to always be online still?

I've read 4 different articles about "cloud computing" and it sounds like we are years off from it. I wonder which other developers are using "cloud computing" besides Playground and Turn10?
GameCents  +   958d ago
It's not rocket science playstation fans.
Some games will have cloud features that enhance your gaming experience when you play online. In this case, cloud features will be auxiliary.
Other games will be cloud dependent and will thus require an internet connection. These games will most likely be online only games like TitanFall.

Where exactly is the confusion?

Some games use cloud. Some don't.
Some games will require cloud. Some won't.
AlphaJunk  +   958d ago
@Blackdeath - people in areas with slow or no broadband connection get screwed when they can't play the multi-player portion of a game as well according to your reasoning; Guess what? That's technology advancing and not everyone always has access to the latest advances or feature and is DEFINITELY NOT a reason not to continue with it's production. It's like some smart phones that now have LTE radios that only have access to LTE speeds in major metrolpolitan areas - should they not produce this tech because everyone can't access it because they don't live in that area? Of course not and no one is getting screwed.

Digital foundry is probably one of the most respected tech analysis sites on the planet. They do almost all system and tech comparisons before anybody. Don't just get mad, read it.

Yeah, cloud isn't even something viable on PCs which is where the tech started in the first place. Ironically, the actual advantages of cloud (like family sharing, play your library anywhere, etc) was removed when Microsoft removed the DRM features, so it's no surprise that now all they say is "some games will use Cloud to enhance the experience".

Funny u just focus on the restrictions of cloud tech, while ignoring all the very interesting inovative potentials mentioned by digital foundry in the same article.

1. MS developers are aware of the restriction, and they at least have addressed half of the problem as mentioned in the article by df
2. For things that need up front hardware power due to bandwidth and internet speed limitation, Xbox one by itself is also very capable of handling those, it is just slightly less powerful than PS4 "in theoretical term" and people make it sound like it runs on 1980 Atari tech or something.
NextGen24Gamer  +   958d ago
It will remain a dream for Sony fans like yourself. It is and will continue to be a reality for gamers who choose the xbox one console. Dev after dev has already said they are using it and their games greatly benefit from the cloud.

I can't wait for after November and people like you will change your stance to....Well Sony can do it too! LOL...They are waaaaaaay behind MS and Xbox One was built from the ground up to use their cloud system. And 300,000 servers is crazy...

rainslacker  +   958d ago
Disregarding digital foundry in this discussion, it's worth pointing out that multi-plat games wouldn't likely use the cloud if it wasn't available to use with Sony's cloud as well.

Since I've seen a certain MS gamer claim 90% of games are multi-plat, I'll go with that number. If 90% of games are limited by whatever they can do on one system, they aren't going to be much better on another system. System parity is pretty much par for the course. Exclusives may use it to better effect.

Or the more logical conclusion can be made that Sony's Gaikai can do the same thing. Sony admitted that their cloud could be used for the same purposes that MS is touting. But they were honest enough to say that it would be limited in scope, and pretty much just stopping short of calling MS full of sh*t. Sony didn't say, however, that they would allow such a feature to be used on their system. But that's another debate.

The 3x power increase is marketing spin. Cloud "features" are good for some things. Better for non real-time implementation, and limited in actual game play scenarios.

One day, when the internet goes all fiber, and bandwidth and latency issues are a thing of the past, cloud gaming will see it's day. Until then, the cloud is not going to be a major factor in vastly improving game play from the user perspective.

Also @ Elite
Once again, not all 300K servers are going to be used for Xbox. Azure runs hundreds of thousands of programs that offer services for over one billion users worldwide(quote from MS own video on their Azure website). The money spent on 300K servers just for X1 would make it the biggest money sink in the companies history.

Titanfall developers already said the cloud lets them do their physics and A.I on the cloud and thats a huge deal. And you want to know why these APU cpus in these consoles totally suck they are slow and are so going to kill performance when heavy physics and A.I come in. If developers use it xbox would have better physics, particle effects, and A.I but i bet only first party will use it.

The cloud is a pipe dream folks. A crack pipe. In a perfect world, where bandwidth and bottlenecks weren't an issue, it would have a chance. But the infrastructure of the internet makes Microsoft's claims an impossibility. Everything that is offloaded to the cloud is subject to latency issues, which creates lag in games. That means that what is able to be offloaded will be minor details and processes that are not latency dependent. The vast majority of the grunt work will still have to be done by the consoles internals. When Microsoft claims it will be like having the power of 3 Xbox Ones in the cloud that is hyperbole at it's finest. Or at it's worst. You decide.

By then, if the internet gets up to par for the technology, all processing will be done on the cloud, likely rendering the console obsolete. Technically that's possible today, although would be limited by resources.

I hate to say it, but that is probably the true digital future, and it puts firm control into the content providers hands. That is what they want, and that's how they'll obtain it.

DD is really just a stopgap.

For the time being though, and for the near future, the internet is the biggest bottleneck in computing. I doubt that will change by 2025 though. That's only 12 years away.:)

"The heavy emphasis on cloud technology brings up the inevitable question: Do you have to be connected to the Internet to play Forza 5? The answer to that question is no -- with a slight catch. The game must log in to Xbox Live at least once, but when it does Forza 5 caches car and race data necessary for offline play. So, after that initial connection, you will be able to play Forza offline."

I for one know that not only MS invested in this but so did Sony... the difference is, they aren't talking about it because they don't have anything to share regarding its pros and cons. I appreciate that because they are learning to speak less and show. MS should learn to do the same. Throwing all these things out but having no proof or something concrete to support these facts are a negative in my opinion.

I'll just go back to waiting then. I want to see how it plays out. I like playing single player games offline. My router sometimes decides to reset and I don't want to be in the middle of a no save point and be disconnected....

You can talk about how great it is all you please, it doesn't change the fact that the average person doesn't have a 100 percent reliable connection AT ALL. Why do you think the push to get rid of it was so strong? If it wasn't a massive issue, then that would have never happened.... "A few fanboys, complainers" wouldn't force an entire company to dramatically update their console. Why do you think Kinect is still involved?

Connections and speeds are still an issue. You have to think you will now not only be playing games instantly in multiplayer, but rendering them, loading them, and streaming them too. THAT will take a lot of bandwith, especially on routers. Now lets imagine a household with 2 or 3 consoles all playing different games at once. Dorm rooms, shared internet connections (if you have cable, you share your connection with the entire street, thats why it slows down in peak hours)

This isn't movies, it isn't a quick little "put the game on a stream" fix. There is A LOT more bandwith and required specs to get the job done. Not all of it is server side, a majority of the issues are user side. Heck even Netflix and other popular streaming services have issues streaming HDX, or even 3D.

Remember when, for the most part, we could just buy a game and know it would work. Remember when that was the greatest draw of a console.

God...those were the days. I remember it like it was just yesterday. Maybe because it was just yesterday, but I'm not one to play semantics.

Going into next gen I'm going to have to research the titles I buy just to see if I will be able to play it effectively whenever I want. Hope someone figures out early a good way to report these things so I know which ones to ignore. Good idea for the ambitious web site makers out there(hint hint).

Already Watch Dogs was called into question(although now said it can be played offline). AC4 had a rumor surrounding it which I can't imagine to be true. Then there's The Crew. The Division(not a big deal since I thought it was an MMO). Possibly others. I dunno. Should I just wait to buy any game until I know for sure? Hope these publishers put it in big writing on the box so all can see. SimCity should be a good enough example of why that is important.

I'm sorry but this makes no sense. I'm hype to see what the cloud can do but your making it seem as if other consoles don't have nothing to bring to the table.

The benefits of one will bring about bigger possibilities than the other. I'm just saying...
