Worlds built for the cloud "can be lusher and more vibrant than ever before"

The Xbox One isn't a videogame console - it's a goddamn sexual Tyrannosaurus, which will call on the "infinite" power of cloud computing to defend the Earth against demon space rocks. Yep, Microsoft's on the PR offensive again.... read more

Oh good! I wonder if it's a MILF? As long as MILF is not an acronym for Male In Lady's Frock of course. :mrgreen:

And to think when we were worried sick they might be watching us gaming in the nude they're really only innocently tracking 330,000 asteroids.

Is the XBO replacing Trident?

I know but it's going to be awesome. I'm still a bit worried though as the one thing Forza didn't need was having the race course bombarded by 330,000 asteroids whilst racing.

This is gonna be great though

Do you think all of the Xbox Ones combine together into a massive Ironman-esque robot at times of great peril, to defend the planet? :D Anyhow, if it eliminates the necessity for loading then that is a rather large positive point in their favour.

I'd more expect a Devastator merge for the kill than any world saving antics but who knows.

This is the kind of thing Microsoft needs to being doing more of. They need to get people's focus off the restrictions of their online business model and demonstrate the benefits of it. Just saying "through the power of the cloud" doesn't make me think the X1 can counter the PS4's superior RAM. So SHOW ME how it can! Preferably with something a little flashier than monitoring asteroids next time okay?

Surely the 'Infinite Cloud Power' should be able to track ALL of the asteroids in space.

Humorous maybe... not silly.
I just don't think you should throw around terms like 'Limitless' and 'Infinite' when its obviously not the case.

And assuming MS actually release a firmware patch which disables the internet authentication at the end of it's lifecycle what happens to games that utilise the cloud? Still useless I'm betting. What bothers me is the apparent impermanence of the whole thing. It doesn't matter how much extra horsepower the cloud brings to the machine if ten - fifteen years down the line I'm looking an an overpriced blu ray player and hundreds of pounds worth of games I can no longer play.

I really want to know why I can only find this information here you look around everywhere on the Internet gaming related and all you see is negative articles and PS4 fanboys accepting the console wars trophy but these are the benefits of being online consistently and this makes me excited for this console and games in the future.
