If the “power of the cloud” is supposed to define Xbox One, Australian gamers are yet to enter the next generation.
Australian local servers are launching pretty soon.
Pathetic way to treat your international customers really. Games not even ready on launch day.
what happened to the days when you bought a game day one and that shit worked!
@sephiroth420 the internet happened and literally everybody learned that it could fix things later so release could be earlier.
The game appears to be ready the azure infrastructure just isn't there yet. Find it a shame that they didn't try to do a quick fix by using servers from Google's Oceania Data Center until they finished at least one of their two new data centres in Autralia. You cant expect developers to support latency sensitive cloud features, if servers are not ready and available in all regions.
So wasnt Titanfall cancelled there?
That would be South Africa.
Sorry I meant to say "WHY isnt it canclled there"
I might pick this up for PC at some point, but I really feel for my fellow Aussie gamer that have to put up with high pings. Hopefully they gets those servers up and running fast. Nothing worse than getting lag killed by a less skilled player.
It's the same deal for the Aussie gamer with a PC. Titanfall plays on Azure datacentres only right now, whether One, 360, or PC. The 2 Australian data centres are not open yet.
I played TF Beta on American Servers and honestly didn't notice any lag at all, hit detection was spot on but I read that the Azure servers will be built by the end of 2014 in Sydney and Melbourne.
da cloudz will save us all
Forcast shows bright clear blue skies in Australia, lol not a cloud in sight :C
You know, if games like Titanfall are dependent on local cloud processing, it may explain why Microsoft has been sluggish with their worldwide roll out. Whats the point of offering a product if the customers can't use it in their locale.
Surely PC doesn't require cloud processing it's got more power!
Nah but it needs dedicated servers still
I think that games relying on the cloud are a step backwards. Well until it is a lot more developed and in more countries. I would rather have all the power inside one box. Not rely on your Internet connection.
