Microsoft’s Phil Spencer Talks About the Advantages of the Cloud with Xbox One

Head of Microsoft Game Studios Phil Spencer has always been a big proponent of the “power of the cloud” that has costed Microsoft a pretty penny to buy hundreds of thousands of servers, and should pay dividends with the Xbox One.

Today Spencer talked about what he feels is an important advantage provided by the cloud’s infrastructure.

interesting point phil.....not enough to sway the trust you lost but interesting non the less. smaller devs have an alturnitive way of using servers without high pay and lower cost is always good.
but what happend to the cloud being able to make the x1 10x more powerful?
or was that yet another lie.

Lol, we are talking about a good thing and here you are tring to bring it down. Now let's wait for the x1 to come out and then let's talk about it.

Kingthrash3602831d ago (Edited 2831d ago )

by no means am i putting it down...i clearly stated the pluses and stated no minuses about what phil was saying. but i dont forget what they were trying to do or what they have stated in the past.
if you trust them then by all means do so, but imo, once you lie its hard to get that trust fact its hard to take everything else a lier says seriously. so the trust statement i stand by and if this is the only thing the cloud is good for then by no means is it what they boasted about before....i rarley hear them talk about cloud power anymore so to me it is on my another ms lie list.
but i didnt put the good news down.

Kingthrash, So I assume you you don't trust sony? Either way your problem was placing faith in any company that goal is to make money off of you, sony is not some noble saint some of you portray them as, their not evil either ironicly just businesses as usual while thats fine its of course less likely to piss anyone off but it also doesn't move the industry forward in anyway I think thats the only real difference between the two this gen.

Whats clear is your only intentions is to troll any good news from microsoft, which is why you are off topic about some fictional trust issue. The drm I assume you are alluding to wasnt lies it was a vision if you hated that vision fair enough but surely if follow gaming they both have lied about this or that in the past but lets be real nothing they tried to introduce would have ruined life as we know it and in fact sony clearly went their own path despite what micros intentions were, you are a sonyfanboy so life shkuld of been great for you regardless.

I look to micro, sony or nintendo to provide games on a viable platform with a reasonable strategy to deliver a good experience for my investment. IF for some reason their plans are not inline with my priorities then I simply don't buy their product. No need to pout in the corner like a 5yr old while screaming at all the other kids who are enjoying their cookies.

what evs man you think im trollin. all i can say is im not.
while i understand its hard to depict trolls from true statments, i wont even argue...eeefff it.
i trust no company...not even churches...they have to earn my trust. what i mean is they are selling, if am buying i buy things i trust...even if i buy bananas i trust they are ripe...who buys something rotton? who wants to spend hard earned money only to find yourself getting something you didnt want or didnt need..imagine that same sinerio only you were told that the bananas were fresh...ask your self would you go back to buy thos bananas from the same place. thats what i mean by one should trust a salesman but if you intend to buy something that takes a certan amount of trust does it not? smh man really stop trying to find the troll in people by coming up with some bs story on why i souldnt trust a company...if you buy from someone you dont trust then enjoy being fuc*ed...thats your thing. i go by the integrity of the sales pitch...they lied in their sales pitch and lost my trust.

How is months before the release of the console "too late"? lol.

corvusmd2831d ago

Especially if it was decided a long time ago. Apparently if solidworm doesn't know about it, it doesn't count yet, and only goes into effect when he finds out. I've noticed that among PS Fanboys, they assume everything is a 180 when THEY find out about they know everything or something.

redwin2831d ago

He means it sound good but it's too late for him because he already preordered something else and he can't change it. Lol. Just kidding . Wait until it's out and stablished before you start bringing it down.

I believe by "too late" hes talking in regards to their reputation which is already very tarnished and nobody can really argue that it isn't.. but at least Spencer is making good of the situation.

I will say though instead of doing this defense with the hardcore gamers they should kinda focus on the more casual.. by this I mean people who don't look up gaming news but still do play games regularly.

My friends would fall into that category and until recently they still thought the Xbox One didn't allow used games and they only know now that it does because I told them so. That is the big thing holding people back from getting it, publicize that and I guarantee they will get way more sales.. maybe even run a TV add? Alot more people found out about the DRM than you'd think.

I on the other hand will wait to get a used Xbox One because I want to give as little money to Microsoft as I can because iv'e always seen them as a sleazy money grubby corporation constantly screwing over consumers. If you support Microsoft as a Corporation you must have no self respect. I understand if you have a little interest in the Xbox One you may get one just don't become a fan of Microsoft because of it.. they don't deserve it.

redwin2831d ago

It's great they are using it to help developers not just unlimited free storage for us to download games. This is why I think that the size of the hard drive is irrelevant, we have unlimited cloud. The servers are a great idea.

SniperControl2831d ago

Sounds like you think you can install games to the cloud, well you're in for a rude awakening dude.

Deadpoolio2831d ago

EXACTLY!!!!!!! And why does it seem like these morons fail to think about the fact that DA POWER of DA CLOUD is LIMITED by DA POWER of YOUR INTERNET.....These mental midgets act like their garbage wal-mart wireless internet connections will not hinder da cloud

Kuse2831d ago

Having a vast network infrastructure is only going to pay dividends over the long term, there seems to be lots of positive feedback in regards to multiplayer and other features but does it blend?
