And the company says the power becomes "infinite" with cloud technology, which game developers have been "incredibly positive" about
People aren't asking their engineers the right question, like does the cloud tech not only produces game worlds but also increases the graphical fidelity?
they have all ready answered that no it doesn't increase graphical fidelity but apparently it can track asteroids, im sure there's an android app for that its pr talk because when the real specs hit its going to be embarrassing there forza cloud demo was embarrassing, its a straight rip from gran turismo, you race a few laps the game learns the style of your racing, and your ai can play the game in your style, lets face it, if your going to play these games you want to play against real players
You have a link for the question and answer or are you one of the ones that think they know all about cloud technology?
heres one article if your interested http://arstechnica.com/gami...
Am I the only one getting bored/disgusted with all the anonymous cloud or IT experts coming out of the woodwork?
Great link to exactly what I was asking for. There was the definitive question but there wasn't a definitive answer although the way I read it was that it does lean towards cloud technology helping out the graphical capabilities of the Xbox One.
This explains the fallacy of MS's PR claims. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...

I think they are aiming for 60 fps on all future games with this. That's all I can think of with the computing terms also "In the event of a drop-out - and we all know that internet can occasionally drop out, and I do say occasionally because these days it seems we depend on internet as much as we depend on electricity - the game is going to have to intelligently handle that," he suggested, somewhat weakly
@skynetone, did you read this part or dismissed because you're an expert, or it didn't fit what you want to believe about the future proofing of the "XBone?" ->> "One example of that might be lighting," he continued. "Let’s say you’re looking at a forest scene and you need to calculate the light coming through the trees, or you’re going through a battlefield and have very dense volumetric fog that’s hugging the terrain. Those things often involve some complicated up-front calculations when you enter that world, but they don’t necessarily have to be updated every frame. Those are perfect candidates for the console to offload that to the cloud—the cloud can do the heavy lifting, because you’ve got the ability to throw multiple devices at the problem in the cloud." Booty added that things like physics modeling, fluid dynamics, and cloth motion were all prime examples of effects that require a lot of up-front computation that could be handled in the cloud without adding any lag to the actual gameplay. And the server resources Microsoft is putting toward these calculations will be much greater than a local Xbox One could handle on its own. "A rule of thumb we like to use is that [for] every Xbox One available in your living room we’ll have three of those devices in the cloud available," he said.
10 times red ring power
Power of the clouds lmao
So much damage control.
Exactly......haven't seen this much damage control since the RROD debacle....totally hilarious.
10x isn't much compared to other generational leaps.
Infinite power provided you eliminate the lag, bandwith, and IP problems. Not to mentioned the world would probably need fibre everywhere. Then still, what do you do when your internet goes out. MS is basically trying to sell Onlive. Don't want my game going from high to low settings constantly. Maybe in the futre but it nots close to there yet. All MS does is sell future promises by acting like they exist today. Kinect was all, "next-year with software upgrades hardcore games superior blah blah". They never deliver.
You can do a lot of AI stuff in the cloud without too much problems. If you can stream video, you can easily stream netcode for more advanced ai processing. And who in the western world cant stream video these days?
I can.. but I can't do it for more than a 2 or 3 movies because my ISP will destroy me with bandwidth fees.
That sux, but netcode generates a lot less data then a videostream.
How much cpu/memory does it really take to run ai. I mean we have been playing pc ports for ages and no ones has ever compared ai on pc to ai on console. Its always been the same.
Sarobi, what isp do you use? Do you not use Netflix?
AI stuff could not be done. How would it be if the ai was a few seconds behind the actual player?
When I tried to stream the initial XB1 reveal and the Sony E3 conference it often stuttered and even stopped altogether. And I had a 90Mbps connection according to speedtest.net
off topic https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Just a scapegoat to justify always online. Sad to see what MS has become.Just scrap the freaking DRM nonsense already.
I would hope so. Next gen console is better be more powerful than last gen one. Oh Microsoft...
And Sony's respect to gamers has more power than that of the gods. Sorry M$, you lost.
Your comment makes you look silly.
Not as silly as M$
not 10 times, more like 3 to 5 times. If you believe 10 times, you are stupid.
Damn PS4 must be 20 PS3's Edit - Oh my god will Microsoft let this whole "power of the cloud" shit go. IT'S NOT HAPPENING ANYTIME SOON!
lol not 20 PS3's. maybe about 7 or 8. and 12-13 360's
10 times 0 is still 0.
10x more powerful.... unless the internet is off
Exactly, well said!!
Should be with all that Rocket Science tech inside it. To the Cloud!!!!!! Sounded too stupid to type but I muscled through it...
Next time i want to track asteroids i'll try out the X Box one , as for gaming i'll stick to PS4.
Th new "the powah of teh cellz".
bu bu bu but....the cell is different, its made from sony. Anything that comes from sony is automatically great and is looking into the future, but microsoft isnt allowed to look into the future on here. Maybe we should try being optimistic, maybe they could bring something great to us
once again all the negative feedback from sony drones should change n4g.com to N4PSG.com
While it is true "the power of the cloud" is mostly PR bs, the Xbox One on specs alone is vastly more powerful than the 360 (2005 technology after all).
Okay after watching the press conference, reading articles, reading comments on many different sites, I cannot just sit back and not post a comment ... It needs to be some sort of balance In the beginning I was totally sold on the PS4 to be my gaming device, but that was before the Xb1 announcement . I told my friends that I would wait until I saw something from Xbox... E3 is here the build up before E3 was that Microsoft failed, and all the other rumors with the Xbox1 failing at being a gaming system. The press conference started and I was blown away by Metal Gear, not because it was Metal Gear but because of the graphics , now as a previous Xbox 360 owner I felt comfortable with what the Xbox1 could do, I went out and Preordered the system, and I preordered Nba 2k14, Battlefield and Watch Dogs all coming out on launch day.. Yes the PS4 is cheaper I was planning on paying at least $500 anyways , I am 30 yrs old , I work , I have a budget for my video game habit, also the fact that I have been waiting for Pc gaming to come on console for years, now let's look at all Xbox or Xbone has to offer entertainment , cloud computing, Xbox live, and the Kinect...... Cloud computing interested me the most because of the possibilities that can be done with it, so when it happens and they pull it off the benefits with games can't wait Let's look at the PS4 and why I was sold on purchasing it, the PS4 is more powerful, I did not own a PS3, and maybe PS4 gamers may differ from Xbox gamers, these are solid reasons for me to go out and pre order the PS4 in my mind right ? Then it hit me, Xbone offers more, if Microsoft is right the risk I take dispite all the negative press will be the right choice, the only thing I would lose out on by not owning a PS4 will be the power of the PS4, I will be pissed off if the multiplatform games look very different on the PS4, but I will be mad but I can live with it.. Now let's touch on what the mobs are talking about , all of the lynching being done towards Microsoft DRM, and checking in 24 hrs etc , Sony could have gone the same route with these policies, and with both companies doing the same thing I wonder what would be the determine factor in buying either system ? ah that's right games, power to deliver the games, multiplayer support, and extras, so to everyone out there stop being followers and become a leader
Yet if your a normal person that struggles day by day like many normal people Don Mattrick doesn't believe your good enough for the Next Gen :o you have to stick with your old gen stuff cause your just not good enough. But any one with there head screwed on knows there's always greener grass on the other side off the field ;) Its long and its been growing for a longer time than Mattricks grass ^^.
nice story and stuff. This is not reality though. I wonder if PS4 also has cloud computing support.
so thats why the size of the XboxOne is very huge, they put 10 power brick inside damn!!
LOL. ... reaction on N4G on any article remotely positive toward Xbox One is commical.
Because something "remotely positive" about the XBOne is negating the massive negatives already there?
Come on, you and I both know regardless of our differences that any article on N4G right now that has any kind of positive news on Xbox One... even if they said they were doing away with DRM 100%... would be met with ridiculous over the top negative spin.
I dunno, whats the use that its so "powerful" when only 0.5% of the Earth population is going to own one before converting to the PS4?
Yo MS stop it already with the BS dude, one of your own Devs was already quoted right here on N4G how your " Cloud " power was just marketing BS. Jeebus christ i feel i gotta put on some rubber boots everytime i read an article you put out, I mean you guys relly pile it high.
so this means ps4 has power of 15 xbox 360s.
more like 20
They have got their heads well and truly stuck in the clouds!
And is worse 10X than 360.
