Since the Xbox One was announced, we’ve been hearing about the power of the cloud. In the upcoming Crackdown from Reagent Games, it manifests as completely destructible environments in multiplayer.
In other news, water is wet.
Nah bro I swear Ihad some dry as water this morning, left me with cotton mouth........had to wash it down with some milk.
Oh so I can hear the blame game already. Oh yay.
Isn't all online games dependent on the user's ISP? David Jones already said you only need 2-4mb/s of Internet transfer speed to make this work so for the majority of the popular, this won't even be an issue.
Have u ever played a mp fps at 2mb/s? Gtfo. 2mb/s!?!? That's bs. For all intensive purposes u can not play a mp fps or tps at 2mb/s or 2mbps. That's laughable to think a more Internet intensive mp game can run well at 2mbps. A game with massive destruction and fast paced action that uses server based physics and requires a solid connection for transfer data. Goodluck at under 10mbps. I wouldn't feel comfortable unless i had at least 25mbps, can u imagine the competitive disadvantage someone under 5mbps would have? Lag city my friend. Current mp fps should be played at no less than 10mbps, definitely not anything under 8mbps unless u want a slide show and u like dying. Ideally u want 25mbps or more. Surely Crackdown will require more mbps than the common mp fps/tps. 2-4 lol.
i got 2mb/s and never had any problem in any MMOs unless the server had issues, it works perfectly fine.
Yeah dude they are going around telling bold face lies just to piss you off. Did you not know that's how the world works now? Everything is about you?
@tyler, I died laughing when you said slideshow. @cartoonx1, yeah I can play ffxiv on ps4 pretty well at 2mb/s.........right up until the Odin fate pops and the server damn near crashes from the players tryna crowd the area.
I used to play CounterStrike lag-free on 56.6Kbps (that's a massive 7KB), stop spreading FUD. 2-4Mbps is more than adaquate to transfer text based location data, do you even realise that 250-500KB holds 256000 to 512000 characters? Half a million characters per second not enough, really? LMFAO Also, just to educate you a little about 'MP gaming'... if you had a 100Mbps connection with a latency of 100ms and I have a 2Mbps connection with a latency of 20ms I'd have a significant competitive advantage over you. Google PING and gaming.
So in other words.... if your Internet is down it won't work? Lemme guess.. it won't load Web pages, downloads, streaming music or amazing articles like this? *shocked*
sooo, like titanfall or any other online game, you need to be online with a decent speed. got it!
MS said using the cloud computing takes a DL rate of about 2 mbps. So most will be fine. Crackdown is getting all these questions aimed at it like "what happens if my net goes down?!" Well uh you can't play it multiplayer just like you can't play any other MP game.... :) This isn't a special situation.
its nothing but a streaming text file... try typing into notepad until you hit 2mb... your gonna be awhile.. lol i personally think people are confused and think streaming video and audio is the same as instructions.. this is not bandwidth intensive, its latency intensive.
Any excuse to downplay Crackdown it's hilarious, what if this what if that lol.
What IS hilarious is that ms is claiming your Crackdown mp experience will be great at 2mb/s, that's 2mbps... I wouldn't play ANY competitive online game at TWO megabytes per second. Goodluck with Battlefield, Rocket League, CoD, even an online f2p at 2-4mbps.
So why are you posting on here? The Sony articles are that way trollio >>>>>>>
Its also about the always online future that's being pushed. Current online support is not 100% reliable or even accessible, game consoles will become bricks when servers are shut down, but an agenda that removes consumer rights if not entitlement to products they buy is just a thing that's happening. Being defended out of nothing more than brand loyalty.
the damage control spin off is real you only need 2-4mb internet, thats dirt cheap
yeah requirements are so low, if you don't meet them you don't meet the requirements to effectively play any multiplayer game tbh. Non issue.
If you can stream Netflix, you can play Crackdown 3's multiplayer without issue.
I'm gonna get hate, but I still really want to see it in action with my own eyes. Problem is, MS has been touting the cloud as a game changer in several games like Forza 5, Titanfall, and Sunset Overdrive, and every time we get a subpar game, graphically. I just want to see the destruction for real before I become a believer.
I want to see someone playing Crackdown mp at 2mbps and see how well it runs. Is ms saying that Crackdown will require less of an Internet connection than most mp shooters? Somehow the online based destruction requires a lower connection than any other mp game? Riight... This is PR bs, they literally just threw out the lowest possible number so everyone feels like they can run Crackdown with no prob. Can u stream Netflix @ 2mbps? It's insulting imo. Every xbone supporter is saying "see u only need 2-4mbps to run Crackdown at full potential". U will get slaughtered at 2-4mbps.
How do you still have 5 bubbles? You going on a tirade about internet speed and you don't even understand how the technology works.
You can rely on Tyler to use his replies in every positive Xbox article to trash the system. The technology now has some substance and its not on your system of choice buddy, deal with it. As a gamer any new tech that enhances an experience should be embraced. If its a success and comes to PS4 I'm damn sure you'll be loving it.
man the media is digging hard to try and find something to hate on ms for , getting simple clicks from the newly minted ps4 fanboys is getting so hard its time to give it up and just tell the sheep the truth the xb1 is the best console this generation hands down.
Bit much there..
1st @ Chris12 & Dewitt I didn't insult anything but ms for telling ppl Crackdown mp/cloud destruction will work well @ 2mbps. Damn straight i went on a tirade bc telling ppl that any mp shooter will work well @ 2 mbps is bs, particularly a physics intensive cloud based mp. @ Bleedsoe9mm What...? The media hating on ms? Have u looked around N4G lately? Almost every article is praising ms, how many articles claiming Crackdown will be the best thing ever have we seen recently? Scalebound as well. The best console hands down yet it is less powerful and selling at half the rate...U forced me to say it.
You're one of the biggest Sony trolls around so take a hike.
If you can play any other multi player game you can play this one.
So basically Azure is just sending back instructions which is why latency requirements are so low? I read somewhere that the "cloud" will eventually be used to help with graphics. Of course like many I have no idea what is possible but can they figure out ways of using this towards animations, textures graphics etc? For Some reason I feel there is a lot more there just not ready to share with us yet. Now I also see why how it might have been true why MS once apparently had plans with Samsung to create an xbox within a tv. Looks like everything will one day be ran through Azure.
