Watch the special pre-alpha demo of Crackdown that was recored during Gamescom by the guys of GamingBoulevard
Hahahaha so non believers looks like the cloud is real 20 times the compute power of XB1. Where are the jokes now? Powaaaaah of the cloud is real remember doubters keep saying they don't believe it and want to see it in action so what now? XB1 is serving a healthy dose of crow this week great time to be a gamer and even better time to be a XB1 fan.. PS4 will not be doing this for 1 the sysytem was not built with this in mind and they just don't have the servers to even attempt this Azure is a huge freaking network. You can be a hater all you want but true gamers are surely impressed with this. Yes the cloud has finally been shown :)
A tech demo's great and all but let's see how well it works on day-one. That's all I gotta say. :) ONE person using the servers is vastly different from hundreds of thousands of people trying to use the servers.
you know that azure has hundred of thousands servers right lol. I have no worries about MS azure servers ..
Don't worry, not everyone have limited servers like Sony.
Easy there. This is far from being the final build, which can suffer of major frame rate drops if they don't do it right. The demo itself does. Notice the word "can", because I can be as sure as you about how well or poor the performance will be. Preview builds mean nothing on this. A tech demo means even less. And yeah, I don't immediately buy any promise companies do on their advertisements. PS: Finally, if it is anything like its predecessors, I will surely buy this dumb and fun game. Think about it before picking the "hater" card. ;)
This is indeed super cool. I just find it funny that most of the big gaming news sites or high profile youtubers are not talking about this, considering how much MS was being mocked and called liars for saying this tech is coming to the xb1. I remember so many saying the "Powa of the clouds" is impossible, but here it is, and all of the pundits just disappeared....lol
Because that would mean they would have to admit they're wrong. Better to stay quiet and sweep it all under the rug than actually admit anything or speak on how impressive this can be if applied to more games. I'll never understand why so many want to hate this? If this works it could be great for games of all types.
I've watched this demo several times today and it's just amazing what MS and Reagent are doing with this game.This is the most next gen tech i have seen this gen and it's only in pre-alpha stage. Awesome.
Pretty good for a tech demo...I'm loving the art style though. Really refreshing.
The power of the clouds is at full display here. Actually Phil Spencer already said that was the case last year Phil Spencer–Verified account @XboxP3 "@Xone_br33 Yes, build demo was early crackdown work." Go to show, if Phil said something is true or is coming, it is the truth!
Lol this is glorious. Theres ya cloud folks. I cant wait to play this in 2016. Bu bu bu...its only using 2x of the cloud for one buliding...but dat red faction.
That is really impressive and it's pre-alpha footage too, which means the graphics will only get better by the time it releases. People kept asking for "proof" and "show me" well here it is. I have to say if this takes off and works as well as it looks here I think this type of tech should be implemented in more Xbox games... MECH WARRIOR for starters. Power of the cloud is starting to hold a lot more weight at the moment. Let's hope Crackdown turns out to be a good game with this use of tech.
So what happens when xbl goes down. The idea of clown is shit. It can be hacked. Isps can go down etc
Same thing that happens in every other MP game? Also, I really don't like clowns either, so we are on the same page there.
@jay2, You do know the destruction of the entire city by the cloud only works while online playing MP right? It is no different if PSN goes down and you can't play COD back Ops 3 online or Destiny at all. The offline single player campaign is story driven and it will not have to use the power of the cloud processing as those destruction physics only work when connected to the azure dedicated servers.
Just gets better and better with every video. With this tech I would love to see a Godzilla or Pacific Rim game. Could you imagine giant monsters and robots fighting each other in a fully destructible city? Its the game that Ive always dreamed about.
Lmao the power of the cloud, its cool in all but meh i thought the cloud was going make it really powerful, i better see a whole lot of physics in other xbox exclusives games like scalbound for me to be gasping. Crackdown who cares, the first couple was poo
They are destroying an entire city, what more do you want?
Simple i dont care for crackdown its meh, i want to see this stuff in halo or quantum brake, it Would appeal more to me, not saying its bad im saying its meh. Point physics in general in the game, wen big hitter games from ms that has sexy graphics like quantum brake do, nd uped physics then im on the train until then meh. Shooting a stone bridge a few times in it falls im gasping bf4
If this really works like that in the final game, color me very impressed. I was very sceptical.
IF it actually ends up working like that when everyone's playing it post release that's absolutely incredible. Crackdown was never my type of game but (again IF it works and I think anyone who's followed gaming for more than a week can understand the skepticism) this is a true breakthrough for gaming in general and could help so many games in so many interesting ways.
This is why and how I became a gamer... Re-defining in-game mechanics, pushing the limits.... I cannot WAIT!!! for THIS!!! It's really sad more media sites are not reporting this...interesting....but UC4 HORIZON got plenty of news.... Microsoft delivered again.... BIG UPS to PHil and the TEAM THANK YOU... oh yea... PLEASE BRING BACK ALAN WAKE 2 and BRUTE FORCE.
Yes... it is amazing how quiet the gaming media is about this. There it is right there in their fade (a breakthrough in modern gaming) and they are ignoring it because it is MS.
Lol. They have no choice. Eurogamer, Gamespot and IGN are all over this. You just cant ignore something as awesome as this especially after all the naysayers and backdoor devs tried so hard to downplay this and MS(anytime they mentioned cloud).You should see the level of spin and crow eating happening on GAF. This will teach people to be patient and keep their lips sealed. Imagine this tech being used in Gears mp, Halo mp, Halo wars, Sea of Thieves or in a game like Recore where the landscape is constantly changing.Every game genre can benefit from this tech.It's freaking amazing.
Wow... The Xone is now on a totally different level! The possibilities are now endless and hopefully people will now stop jumping to conclusion bragging about power. Let us move on from the past and enjoy the future. Good job MS keep it up!
