Forza Motorsport 5: How the Xbox One racer's Drivatar system works | Digital Spy

DS - "It is a feature that provides a glimpse into Xbox One's cloud-based potential that could define the system in the coming years. We asked developer Turn 10 how it records and uses player data, how the game decides your digital opposition and whether trolls can abuse the system." (Dan Greenawalt, Forza Motorsport 5, Xbox One)

Same as the drivatar system in the original Forza Motorsport back in 2005.

As soon as you let everyone know where, in 2005, the drivatar system took data from players over the cloud and applied that data to simulate real player drivers instead of AI made by the devs would be awesome.

You shared your drivatars via memory card rather 'the magical cloud' haha, it was the same thing just without a dumb buzzword :D

Far from a buzz word. What is a buzz is your denial of the fact that Azure exists.

They did have drivatar years ago. But it was basic. You had your personal drivatar and could get your friends.

It was used really to get better at the game racing against your own or a friends.

There taking this and adding the use of the cloud. Races well be populated by drivatars from all over the world.

It's very interesting and I hope it works as advertised.

So...to say it's the same is wrong.

Ship memory card to one person via mail and waiting a week to take advantage of ONE drivatar.

Hook the X1 to the cloud and download the data of hundreds of thousands of player drivatars in a few minutes.

I never knew we had access to the Cloud dating all the way back to 1990 with the Neo Geo since it was the first console to use Memory Cards. WTF are Sony and Micro thinking building Azure and Gakai when all you need is 1990 technology. -__-

I realize you're trolling...but be a little better at your craft at least. Take a little pride in it.

Cloud dating, huh?
theWB27  +   815d ago
I'm sorry Hicken.

cloud, dating....is that better?
Hicken  +   815d ago
Nope. Still sucks.
theWB27  +   815d ago
Well then it's not my problem you don't like proper grammar.
Ashby_JC  +   815d ago
The system in place didn't record data from players all over the world and have them in the cloud and used to populate your races.

It's not the same. If you feel it is. More power to you.

Ot- I'm looking forward to playing forza 5 I skipped #4. I did feel they came out with to many sequels in to short a time.

That was my main reason for skipping the last one.
