Awesome video. Xbox cloud will change the landscape of gaming.

I found this interesting. http://www.oxm.co.uk/65749/...

Apparently The cloud boosted the X1's performance.

Not exactly. They used the cloud to aid them with game development which is great. However they didnt use the cloud to boost the power of the system or anything similar.

From Article: "The ability to tap into Xbox Live Compute has allowed the studio to lavish more time and development resources on the game's visuals and complex physics systems; without this advantage, it would have had trouble achieving Forza 5's final resolution."

People have to understand what the cloud can and cant do.

BTW this is just my opinion but with more development time they could have had the same result without even using the cloud. But that wouldnt be possible since they had to have the game ready by launch.

"The ability to tap into Xbox Live Compute has allowed the studio to lavish more time and development resources on the game's visuals and complex physics systems;"

According to these guys they've done some touch ups to the graphics. How reliant were they when they were using the cloud is a mystery but it sounds like the cloud enhanced the game in some degree or fashion,and they mentioned the visuals.

Hey I dunno, Turn 10 is the 1st devs to really, really talk about cloud and seems they are benefiting extremely well from it.

"They used the cloud to aid them with game development which is great."

So overall your admitting that the cloud in some way has influenced Turn 10's game?

this is the interesting thing about paying for Xbox LIVE vs paying for PSN all a sudden now with PS4.

We know what MS has done, is doing, and plans to do with Xbox LIVE which is already great.

But off the back, PSN+ is now required to play multiplayer and in the 5 days i've had my PS4 it's like the same old PSN to me with features the PS3 should have always had. Granted, in-system streaming is tight though.

Sony hasn't really said what they plan to do with PSN besides "make it faster". Am i wrong?

And that's why they have the instant game collection. Which Microsoft had to copy for the sake of the masses that don't have the understanding you do. Fantastic!

Well m $ had the advantage because of the compulsory gold subscription because the money payed went straight back into upgrading the service.
Ps on the other hand, offered a basic service for free. Then when ps+ came along with the instant game collection, there was and still is a reason to pay, and since then the ps online service has constantly improved due to the extra revenue.
With sales of ps4 breaking records, and the majority of buyers will pay for the service, I can only see it growing bigger and better, maybe even matching xbox live...question is can m $ keep up In the quality exclusives department. ...time will tell.

Exactly the point i've been making after my brother bought one and I had to get one for just to play a couple games with him.

So far?....it's been what I had expected, feeling that "left out" feeling without Live. It just doesn't seem, fun.

Already have my preorder for Xbox One, but we'll be with my bro helping him get he's.

True next gen starts Day One Gaming Stamina!

Pretty cool video. I'm still skeptic on the cloud. I really want to see it in action and see how it benefits the X1 and it's users. Interesting to see down the road how it advances.

Squads in Ghosts already shows that some of their plans are indeed possible, at least the AI being more dynamic and evolving. Balancing for a fighting game more frequently will be a great thing. Will be good to see this all in action.
