They target it hopefully its happens and sercet idea for cloud please just stop until u MS can give us proof of these claims i'm not buying this!

Disagree: Be logical here they haven't show us really much of cloud and 'true' power yet so i have the right to say it! be fanboy of logic geez sue me!

Fireseed1678d ago

They haven't shown us much of their ability to utilize cloud computing... HOWEVER they have found a way to visually destroy every other racing game around. So I don't think they're banging rocks together over there.

cyguration1678d ago

Keep in mind that SMS is destroying every other game visually on PC. We don't know how the game will look on consoles yet.

Naga1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

I have two main concerns with Project Cars on any console:

1) Will it measure up to the droolworthy graphical prowess they've displayed in the PC screenshots?

2) Will there be enough of a hardcore audience to sustain a game like this?

On the second concern, if the game is not accessible to the masses, it will matter very little how great of a hardcore simulation it is. The game itself would run the risk of being too exclusive to sustain a healthy profit for the developers, and the long-term viability of the project would come into question. To be clear, I'm not suggesting they compromise on their vision... it's just that there are natural consequences with going there.

As a car racing fanatic, I'm hoping for success on both fronts and on both consoles.

AndroidVageta1678d ago

"Visually destroy" isn't accurate I would say. Even older games like NFS: Shift 2 or GRiD 1/2 don't look THAT much worse (if at all considering it at least has 3D crowds).

So yeah...not trying to be anti-X1 or anything (don't even own a console) but Forza 5 genuinely doesn't look THAT good. If it were not for the 1080p and 60fps it wouldn't even be that big a jump from Forza 4.

UltimateMaster1678d ago

Didn't I read an article that said the Wii U version will also be 1080p?

Guess I did.

Wait till something has been shown and proven. Other than that to me this is just another PR talk trying to hype things up. So far it is pretty damn clear that the Cloud thing that MS is bragging about is clearly just marketing bullcrap. As usual since that what they always does. Mark Cerny did commented Cloud wont make prettier graphics or anything about visual. However it does help other things that works well in Cloud. If whatever MS is bragging about their Cloud is so true, they would not be keeping quiet about it considering how they get so offensive when the internet blow up about how much more PS4 is technically more powerful than XO. Even Phil Spencer himself now said local compute is very critical now and a long way to go when being asked about Cloud. That already completely contradict the way how MS initially brag about their Cloud can do.

All in all those dont matter to me. What I really want to see is how this game able to stack up with those already establish franchises like GT n Forza. That's all I am interested now. All other talks are just more PR shit imo

Wow, all the comments above...LOL!

Hope this isn't a new trend. Where an independent studio claims the benefits of cloud computing and they get bashed for it. You guys are low. Very sad.

I believe it's too early to down the technology so early. Give the generation a year before we start making judgments. So far, I'm loving this innovation. Games will be more changeable and organic. AIs will improve and newer gameplay features will make gaming great.

Can't wait to see what Fable Legends and Sunset overdrive will reveal. Or even Halo and Black Tusk's game.

XBL will benefit from dedicated server, but desperate fanboy think it is some magic secret sauce. It isnt any company with dedicated server can do it.

Some facts to get past their delusion.

-MS themselves stated in their business plan that Azure is focusing Outlook, Skydrive, server liscensing and etc. Not XBL.

So to say MS spent 250 million just for XBL is pure just delusional. Servers made mainly for XBL stuff.

-What MS is doing with server has been done everywhere else. LOL. Literally for a decade. Look MMOs, all the AI, world events are done and calculated on server.

Now MS calls it cloud, fans who wanted to desperately clutch on to something now thinks it is magic sauce.

LOL. Using Outlook server on games. You think that is your secret sauce. LOL. Using servers has been done for decades. It does not offer any advantage over using dedicated servers.

Forza graphics have nothing to do with cloud. LOL. It runs exactly the same when you play offline. And Forza 5 was not really acclaimed for graphics.

Look at all the games doing with so called Cloud. LOL. nothing. Now Titanfall is confirmed 6v6 with cloud and reported to be 720P with cloud.


GameNameFame1676d ago

Also, first time I've heard a game with

-Card board crowd
-No dynamic weather
-Static lighting
-Static environment.
-Static seasons.

Get called "visually destroy" anything. LOL. DF wrote and article about its unimpresive graphics. LOL

Agree.....why is it all the cloud uses are always secret?

Let's talk about it...gamers are dying to know

It does make it seem like all PR.....using Cloud only as a talking point....can we see some implementation that actually show how "revolutionary" it is supposed to be for games

MRMagoo1231678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

The secret is it wont do anything special , the same as it hasnt done anything special for pcs in 10 years, the cloud i mean.

Ausbo1678d ago

We are disagreeing because we know you dont have an xbox one for the cloud capabilities to matter to you

Prime1571678d ago

And that he only tries to be the first post in almost every article.

GiantEnemyCrab1678d ago

Have you not seen the Drivatars in Forza that use the cloud?

Rainstorm811678d ago

I don't have an X1 just yet..... can u tell me how the Drivatars are different from Ghosts we've seen in games for over a decade?

GarrusVakarian1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

@ Rainstorm81

Drivatars and ghosts are 2 completely different things. Ghosts are just overlays of your exact lap onto the track whereas Drivatars are data collected from real people who have played game, transferred onto an AI driver. They act like real players, because they are composed of real player data. The devs explain it much better here :

The first time i read about the Drivatar system, i was really impressed. I haven't played Forza 5 yet, but i can't wait to see how it actually works in-game.

On topic: Great news about 1080p, 60fps. I hope they can hit the target.

GarrusVakarian1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

Double post, my bad.

AndroidVageta1678d ago

The thing that was used in the other Forza games without needing "Cloud Power™"?

Honestly if Microsoft can stream enhancing graphical features(like %20 of the gmae) and we see sony streaming %100 of a game then sony can easily do it too

mediate-this1678d ago

Sasuke your drunk go home

Mister_Dawg1677d ago

Yet if Sony had said this, you'd be riding them like a greased up piggy in the deep south.
