Bruno on Xbox One cloud: ‘What Forza 5 has been able to do is very unique’

We recently had a chance to sit down and talk with John Bruno, Lead Program Manager on Xbox Live about the upcoming Xbox Live Compute. In our discussion, the benefits to the different types of genres was brought up.

So without the cloud/online would the game/games be different?

I understand an online only game like titan fall using the cloud for extra magic/power. But what about a single player game that's offline? Will it be a lesser game off the cloud? Or will you have to be online for all games?

When online was required to use the console it would have made sense to take advantage of the servers for all sorts of games for things like AI.

With online being optional it's likely games will be designed around being played offline.

The vast majority of people will keep their console online though, so perhaps there is hope :)

You can start designing a game to be offline, then offload for more awesomeness when the cloud is available.

However, games like Titanfalls wouldn't work offline and I think we are increasingly moving towards online games even if it is similar to a traditional single player experience.

A living breathing world if you may that is altered by other games, yet stays single player. This would open up to a game that can be replayed with different experiences that aren't necessarily pre-determined like it is today.
