Champions in the cloud - how Kinect Sports Rivals' online AI works

OXM UK: "Forza Motorsport 5 isn't the only Xbox One game to make actual, practical use of the much-sung, much-maligned Xbox Live cloud. The Kinect Sports Rivals Champions system also draws on Microsoft's hefty server arsenal, allowing players to store nipped, tucked, perpetually evolving AI versions of themselves online, who then compete against other players in your absence. Why did Rare opt for this functionality, rather than the usual array of pre-fabbed computer constructs? I spoke to executive producer Danny Isaac for more." (Kinect Sports Rivals, Xbox One)
