Cloud Gaming? Looks like Microsoft might have been correct

When Microsoft announced the details of the Xbox One, they said that although the Xbox One has weaker specs than the PS4, that the power of the cloud would help them to make up the difference.

I must admit, I wasn’t really sure what they meant by this and thought it was just some more marketing jargon. Then Drivatar was announced for Forza 5 and I thought, great, someone is making use of the Cloud, but it still didn’t really show me the “Power of the Cloud” as Microsoft put it.

Next up was Titanfall, which is an amazing game (see my review here), with AI powered by the cloud. Again, it was a pretty poor showing of what the cloud can do. I still wanted to see what the cloud could bring to the table in terms of Graphics and processing power.

Thankfully for me, Microsoft have now released this video, which expalins and demonstrates the power of the cloud. This video was made on a PC however and probably had a really, really good connection, but its the best representation of what the cloud can do.

Hopefully, we will see more of this in the future and it has demonstrated, well to me at least, that the power of the cloud might not be just some marketing jargon. Thoughts below please.
