The gaming world has been in a state of shock, surprise, and hype since Microsoft showed off a demo of Crackdown 3 at their Gamescom panel last week. In light of Crackdown 3‘s impressive Gamescom demonstration, many Xbox One owners are now suggesting that third-party developers ditch parity in their multiplatform games, so as to take full advantage of the Xbox One’s Cloud computing technology.

The demo itself, which you can read more about here, shows off impressive use of Microsoft’s long-touted Cloud compute capabilities, and marked a turnaround for gamers everywhere as Microsoft was able to finally show their vision of games utilising ‘the Cloud’ in an unprecedented fashion. It also showed those skeptical of the tech that it is indeed possible.

In the week since, many Xbox One gamers have taken the stance that more third-party games would benefit from utilising this technology – offloading all the NPCs in Assassin’s Creed or Deus Ex could create a more robust in-game city; Call of Duty multiplayer could have some destructible environments, and so on.

The possibilities for application on a game-by-game basis are staggering.

It’s to this end that some Xbox One owners are pushing for ‘no parity’ in third-party multiplatform games, often citing the PlayStation 4 as potentially ‘holding back the future of gaming’ when it comes to the possibilities of Cloud compute.

The irony lies in the fact that, not too long ago, PlayStation 4 owners were the ones pushing for no parity, seeing as many Xbox One games of the time weren’t hitting the fabled 1080p/60fps benchmark. Now that the tables have turned, it only seems fair that developers should try to use each console’s strengths when developing their games, which potentially includes the many uses of Microsoft’s Cloud structure.

The only problem with going a ‘no parity’ approach – which is great in theory – is that multiplatform developers will essentially have to make two entirely separate games when developing for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One; one with Cloud computing capabilities, and one without. To what end they may use the Cloud in such a situation is up for speculation, but if it’s as game-changing as Crackdown 3‘s destruction then there’s no telling what kind of developmental hurdles they will have to jump through.

And while this is the point of ‘no parity’, it may also, arguably, make one version ‘better’ than the other.

Case in point: would you rather play Crackdown 3 wtih destruction, or without?

Personally, I believe that ‘no parity’ should become a thing, as it ensures developers squeeze the most they can out of each console and its respective strengths, and it’ll help push the industry forward as a whole.

At the same time, we need to be careful that this doesn’t completely deny a portion of gamers from what could potentially be an entirely different experience. A case by case basis may be the best route to go.

We’re still a ways off from any of this happening, as Crackdown 3‘s own capabilities were just revealed, but it will be very interesting to see how Microsoft’s approach to Cloud computing is adopted – in both exclusive and multiplatform games – in the years to come.

    i say bring it. it will never happen due to it would only make microsoft look bad. again by now supporting it when it and its fanboys has spent what would be three years saying you can hardly tell a difference. I still think, at the end of the day, there would be no difference. It is not that big of a leap thus far according to any info that is out. how immersive will the multiplayer maps be at what resolution at what frames persecond with how many players on a map/server? the game, outside of boners, does not look impressive thus far. sure you can blow up everything but how much detail is in everything? Like everything else thus far from microsoft, i think this would fall short of what they are selling. it is what they do well, over hype and over promise when they are trying to sell a product. time will tell and yes, this will be where companies will want to go but i do not vote for it but it will not stop it. Microsofts dream is to have control over every aspect from their server farms vs actual consumer ownership. more control over advertisement and marketing. blah.

    • Rhodri

      Why do you think that you know the company’s intentions? You make it seem like some thing bad. The cloud could change gaming period once people know what its capable of and this applies to all platforms. I think that every developer should take advantage of each consoles’ strong points to make a game run and look the best possible so yes to no parity.

      • rudero

        If it were something as simple as just gaming but that is not the end goal. The end goal is to regain control of all computing on to commercially owend server farms. Gaming would just be a way to gain trust with said scenario. This would also stifle progress to the companies sayings by having full control instead of letting the populous evolve with their own curiosity out of creations.
        There is a much larger picture especially when it involves Microsoft. They make billions off of marketing and advertising and their research that they were doing for kinect and the Xbox one is not a future that I would like personally. Going the way of the cloud allows companies to have and own everything about a consumer. But as far as current status, this cloud gaming will fall short. If it has taken three years to reach one game to use it of which, only leaves two to three years left on these current consoles, they are further behind then they were with the promises of the original kinect.
        I understand the benefits to simple things but, I assure you, it is only a gate way to another end goal.

    • Rhodri

      Nvm please don’t reply I looked at your profile and all I saw was fanboying and favoritism for Sony.

      • rudero

        Really, using facts is fanboy-ing? Grow up.

        • Rhodri

          You were not using facts

          • Rhodri

            What stood out is the 2 AAA exclusives that is not a fact

          • rudero

            do not walk around blind and tell people how to see… No one ever cares and will pass you off as a fool. Go ahead. Go through my history and point out my lies. I beg of you.

            • Rhodri

              Same can be said to you.

              • rudero

                Do it then. Try. Did you know Microsoft was using an affiliate out of Chicago that was researching using the technology from the kinect to scan products in the household to sell to advertisement companies? Then, they were going to use the same technology in grocery stores. It would scan customers as they entered and if an xbl was found, it would allow them to log into your information that has been gathered from your home and then companies that have bought access would then manipulate your shopping with coupons. Let’s say you drink coke and Pepsi had bought access to the gathered information, while you were walking down the soda isle, they could then try and persuade you to buy Pepsi products. This was just the tip of the iceberg. Microsoft’s end goal has absolutely nothing to do with gaming, it’s about the almighty advertising dollar and having access to all consumers.
                Now, what I stated is fact. I know this because I know someone that was developing it. You might try and pass it off but, then, you would have to be intelligent. I would not even ask you to provide any links to your argument. Microsoft’s billions comes from marketing and advertising of the last ten years. Why would this not be the direction they are going? Outside of trying to control all forms of hardware as well. See, I know my stuff and I wish I could live in a world when all this would have to do with is making a game better, but I would rather it be in the hands of creators that would actually sell me a product that delivered vs log in, we have it from here when we say so.

                • Kreten

                  Did you know that sony put spyware on their multimedia discs and actually were in court over it? Did you know that psn had millions of credit cards stolen? Did you know that microsoft is in court battling patriot act to protect users? And you are taking stuff way out of context and adding bs to it, many stores actually track your shopping habbits so they can place things ud be interested into your path.

                  Also sony phones sending info back to sony because of rootkits etc.

                  • rudero

                    Did you know I did. Did you know that there was not one single count of theft from the hack yet thousands upon thousands of dollars were taken from xbl accounts from last gen? Did you know Microsoft is no longer battling and is playing along again?
                    Did you know sonys goals were to own the living room through electronic entertainment, Nintendo wanted the lock down on gaming in the house hold and, Microsoft wanted the lock down on consumer and computer information due to their marketing and advertising departments?
                    End goals. Who wanted what? The amount of theft due to Microsoft’s software far out weighs any other company but it always gets pushed under the carpet.
                    Microsoft spent more money on research for marketing and advertising than any other project. At what point do you believe they would throw any of that out of the window? All they have done is a slide of hand as far as the Xbox one is concerned. Instead of saying this is how it is they are now saying look at this one game and then the media shills run with cloud computing about a company known for falling short. Why? Their vision is not the game. That is why.

            • efnet

              I got one lie for you…..you said you had an xbox one but when I asked what your tag was you vanished lol

        • Kreten

          Where are you using facts? All I see is pony trying to police xbox articles with fud

        • IrritibleGamer

          Rudero are you an employee of Sony? I ask because Sony did ask their employees to go out and spread the word on the Internet – a simple Google can prove that btw. I just don’t understand how anyone could spend so much time on the Internet bashing something without actually being paid for it, unless you’re just a mindless brand zealot with mental issues?

          • rudero

            See, what is sooooo funny is I did not bash anything. I stated facts about a company you like. and you, and whoever else, see it as negative.
            I am purely stating my research into a company that has way too much power over the populous as every person should do especially when it comes to the personal information of said populous. And Sony? You are aware that Microsoft owns or is partnered with most media outlets correct? So, beside fanboys that go out to protect against the negative press control, who would care if a company paid to combat the monopoly held by Microsoft in order to try and manipulate the markets? For you to be remotely for it is truly sad.

            • This Guy

              If MS is partnered or owns most media outlets, than they best get their money back because up until the past few months. You accuse MS of trying to create a monopoly over everything, well that’s what a business would want isn’t it? To make lots of money, to make the shareholders happy, and to do it by any means necessary? Every Sony product has tried to push their proprietary hardware to create a cohesive ecosystem. From special memory cards to requiring Vita’s. All publicly traded companies are like this, don’t put Sony on a pedestal and wag your finger at MS for the same things.

              • rudero

                Good god. Do you read? When did I put anyone on a pedestal? When did I praise any company at all? The only one bringing Sony into this is you. the press never attacked Microsoft or the Xbox one, THEY STATED FACTS!! I do not see any Xbox fans yelling at the media when they put false headlines up as SONY HACKED but yet it was the same ddos attacks happening to Microsoft or the many articles staring pen will be down for maintance but yet online play is never affected. I do not see any Microsoft fans complaing about the thousands of loop holes in microsofts software that has caused personal and financial theft being left out of the media reports. I see sites that praised the differences of last gen between games now downplaying it but still do it just to save face and some have disappeared all together. The list is huge. That is the huge problem with you fans. Youare so sensitive and protective over the all mighty Microsoft that you all live blind. Like I have stated before, yes, companies do all sorts of crap but I look towards what their end goals are in order to judge.

                • This Guy

                  No you never once said Sony, that’s the first correct thing you’ve said all day without twisting it into something negative. So to clarify you’ve come to an article that in no way impacts you at all just to sling mud around at anyone who supports MS or the Xbox. That’s so much better.

            • IrritibleGamer
    • Kreten

      Sounds like you are describing PS4 nothing more than glorified PS3.5 that still doesn’t have a game to match looks of 900p Ryse.

      Ohh and you can sooo tell the difference when eurogamer zooms in 25x for you and then they tell you ohh sory that was identical COD clip.

    • Edonus

      Your comment is raging fanboy stupidity on a bun. There is so much deflection and non sense it sickening. You have to be a toxic sludge of fanboyism to even write something like this publicly.

      First of the graphics of the game look great.. its a newer level of cel shaded graphics. Its suppose to look like it looks. I have always enjoyed the crackdown visual aesthetic. i am not expecting everything to shoot for photo realism all the time. Diversity and different art styles lend to game distinction. What you are doing is like insulting Cuphead because it looks like a 1930’s cartoon…. well thats what it s suppose to look like.

      The tech itself is a marvel. A few things you might have missed because you are in defense and blind fanboy mode. You ask how immersive will the maps be… there are no maps you play in the entire city unrestricted… yes THE ENTIRE CITY. How could having the ability to affect everything and destroy anything resulting in true world altering changes not be impressive? That is called denial. The details go down to the pebble from what we have seen. Their is a demo were he shoot out a square (but you can do this with any random shape you want to make its not predetermined) and when the cut was done the shape fell out the wall… you could then interact with it. So details is covered.

      I dont give a f^%k what MS goals are. I bought their entertainment device to be entertained not make some political anti establishment protest. MS has delivered great products and I enjoy quite a few. This is what innovation looks like If you cant see that you are lost. But I am sure you will love it next (maybe next next gen) when Sony come out with it.

      • AllSeeingEye

        During the 2013 reveal of the Xbox One, Sony fanboys acted as if MS’ policies were a civil rights matter. That was pathetic. You said it best. You’re buying a product to be entertained. Consoles are toys they are not meant to feed, clothe, or employ you. Yet blowhards acted as if the Xbox One was going to send everyone’s asses to Guantanamo if you so looked at it wrong. They basically used hysteria and B.S. and stoked the fire to take advantage of weak minded individual’s irrational fears to make sure the PS4 was successful and the media played along. Pathetic.

        • GameREV7

          And you are 100% correct again. It’s funny how much these freaks wanted the ps4 to be awesome. It’s rather sad thats is just a big turd compared to the Xbox one. After all the drama and media lies and bias…the truth always shines thru. Ps4 is inferior to Xbox one in every single way.

  • Ghoul

    Won’t happen simply because it requires extra effort.

  • phar0ahad3

    Such a stupid article like if sony doesn’t have a cloud……

    • gionja76

      They don’t. They don’t even own cloud servers. They rent the servers they need to run non cloud games. Ps4 is too weak and can’t off load high speed multitasking because its a last Gen design. Ps4 is pathetic compared to Xbox one.

      • kevin

        Dude everything you just said was fanboy uninformed drivel

        • AllSeeingEye

          He’s right though. Sony rents their servers from Rackspace, they don’t own or operate a network like Azure like MS does. It’s strange how the narrative has changed. The past couple of years its been, “The Cloud is a lie!” today it’s, “Sony can do it too.”

          • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

            Yeah the new narrative is “we’ve seen it run in a highly controlled tech demo so it must work in a real world application”, you could tell an xbox fanboy his xbox runs on gold dust and magic and he’d believe it.

            • Kreten

              Highly controlled tech demo? And all the journalists that got hands on?

              • phar0ahad3

                If the cloud is so strong why does crackdown 3 look like a cellphone game ? by the way did you know that red faction on the ps2 not only debatably looks better than crack down it also all about destructible environments……..

                • GameREV7

                  Okeedokeee….you go play the odor 1886 since it looks sooo good. And ill play crackdown 3. You have fun now.

                  • phar0ahad3

                    That’s really your response are you 5 years old ? you xbox fanboys are truly the worst….

                    • This Guy

                      I think his point is that graphics isn’t everything and that this tech is meant to expand console gaming in a new direction that few are actually focusing on instead of prettying things up. This is the biggest problem with this gen, it’s being improperly defined. Everyone thinks that next gen means better graphics, when it’s meant to be new tech. If you look at the technological advances from PS2 and Xbox to PS3 and Xbox 360, that’s a gen jump. So far this gen it’s been pretty remasters of old games.

                    • phar0ahad3

                      just throw this is my opinion on there and ill say ok idc and the funny thing is your contradicting yourself ….you come on here like ermmmmagerd power of the claud its gonna make my Erxbax so powaful ….Fak SooNy…and now its not about graphics its about great games make up your mind………

                    • This Guy

                      Power isn’t just about graphics. Could you quote me in saying that this would help the console’s graphical capabilities?

                    • phar0ahad3

                      Well it can be about graphics and more destructibility is helping the game from a technical standpoint just to retract and say its about gameplay makes you look like a moron and your currently back flipping but whatever I’m wasting my time with you I just seen a couple of your comments and jesus Christ in some of them you lie and others your clearly being a fanboy without just saying it so whatever ….

                    • This Guy

                      Please enlighten me on my lies and back flipping.

                    • phar0ahad3

                      Your backflipping by saying you weren’t specifically talking about graphics when power can be about everything and lets see some of your lies here

                      1.The PS4 would likely have a higher res, but the destructibility would be on the X1.

                      (yea you just pulled that one right out your ass)

                      2. Hell they only now announced the “feature” of being able to see what your friends are playing (right now and since launch I could see what my friends are playing on my ps4 seriously wtf)

                      3.yet they cap download bandwidth (this is something else your pulling out your ass its not a fact you just heard conspiracy theorys and now your throwing them around based on one comment you read on a forum omfg you must really not care about looking stupid ahahaha)
                      4.The UI is last gen (are you retarded ? Xbox’s UI is broken they have had to drop tons of patches just to make it usable ps4’s ui is literally the best console UI ever)
                      5.Slow usb ports? sony and xbox both use usb 3.0

                      and I can keep going smfh I swear the xbox community on the internet is the worst..

                    • This Guy

                      Wow talk about cherry picking random things that have nothing to do with what we’re talking about and using them completely out of context.

                      1) This was mentioned in a comment comparing how games would differentiate if parity were avoided between PS4 and X1.

                      2) Taken from the update list being beta tested in Japan right now for 3.00. “You can now go to (Now Playing) to see what games or parties members of the community are enjoying right now.”

                      3) Have a look at this. If they’re not intentionally capping it, it’s due to some other technical incompetency due to them because PC and X1 don’t have this problem. http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-General/Here-s-the-real-reason-the-PS4-connection-speeds-are-slow-And-it/td-p/43853818

                      4) I’m not even going to dignify this with an answer. I’ve used the PS4’s UI extensively and like I said in my original comment, that you gladly omitted, it is a very quick UI, but it is very basic and simplistic and lacks a lot of features that actual PS4 owners are asking for, like being able to use your own wallpapers, turning off the controller light, friend online notifications and DLNA support.

                      5) Yessss it is USB 3, but why does it take so damn long to copy game saves to a thumb drive?

                  It’s cell-shaded just as the original Crackdown was you would know that if you’re an Xbox fan.

                  • This Guy

                    Exactly. It’s like a PS fan complaining because the sequel to Valkyrie Chronicles is cell-shaded.

                  • phar0ahad3

                    Does that change the fact that the game is ugly ? ive seen cell shaded games that are beautiful like Guilty Gear Xrd and knack or rime…….

                    • This Guy

                      That sounds like personal opinion, which you’re entitled to, no matter how biased it may be.

                    • phar0ahad3

                      And what does that have to do with anything ? rocket league is an indie game made by like 3 or 4 people crackdown is one of the few xbox exclusives and its supposedly made by a huge team with a multi billion dollar company behind it ….and it looks like a phone game…..Do you see why your dumb ?

                    • IrritibleGamer

                      I played the original Crackdown on the 360 and nobody complained about the developers choosing to make it a cell-shaded game it was all about gameplay. I think the people who are knocking the game now are doing so mostly just to downplay all the cloud tech hype. If graphics are that important to you why the hell own a console then?

                    • IrritibleGamer

                      First of all that’s not a fact it’s an opinion. Also, is it just a coincidence that all three of those games that you mentioned happen to be PS exclusives? Hate Xbox much? I would also question whether or not all three of those games are actually cell-shaded. I think we’re done here.

                    • phar0ahad3

                      Those are the only 3 next gen cell shaded games I know of…..

                    • IrritibleGamer

                      Crackdown looks like it jumped right out of a comic book, at least that was my first impression when I first played the game a few years ago. I don’t recall anyone ever complaining about what it looks like up until now and I believe the few that are complaining are doing so just to downplay all the positive hype around Azure. Haters will hate.

                    • phar0ahad3

                      its not that it honestly makes me angry that Microsoft is showing a cell phone game saying there breaking new grounds in technology I have to see it for myself to believe it…..and I have to be sure 100% that it is incapable for sony to make a world that’s 100% destructible when I already played infamous second son that looks a billion times better than this game and that game is atleast 30% destructible…

            • This Guy

              At least people have used it. Sony has been promising games and tech for years, ie. Last Guardian and the loyal fans have been singing it’s praises as if it were just days away. I mean has any one outside of Sony actually played Uncharted 4?

          • phar0ahad3

            That’s a complete and toal bold faced lie sony bought a server company called gaikai…..

            • This Guy

        I promise you kid if you just make the effort to get like one friend you’d have no interest in wasting your time posting fanboyish nonsense on the internet. Give it a try you’ll see there’s much better things to do with your life then shilling for Microsoft.

          And I’m sure if someone were supporting Sony in the same manner you would provide your public service announcement to them as well right?

        • AllSeeingEye

          It sounds to me that the Sony fanboys are the ones being eviscerated on here because instead of presenting facts they’re relying on age-old ad hominem attacks and superficial reassurances. Where the links and data supposedly showing off Sony’s answer to MS’ investments?

      • phar0ahad3

        What a fanboy holy shit I cant believe people actually thumbed up your comment………

    • Kreten

      They have 15k servers, and microsoft has 200k. And those 200k are right there next to all other MS servers so easy to increase. Where Sony has actually been throttling download speeds so they don’t have to upgrade.

      I mean they are selling headquater buildings, what makes you think that they have money to invest in such a huge infrastructure?

      Just one of datacenter buildings without any equipment cost MS $840M

            Absolutely disgusting Sony are crooks.

            • This Guy

              I know right? The PS4 has been touted as the most powerful console of all time and completely for the gamers, yet they cap download bandwidth, limit cloud game save space to 1GB, have a console policy/limitation of 10MB minimum for game saves per slot for devs, slow as hell USB ports and a UI that although quick is also very much last gen. Hell they only now announced the “feature” of being able to see what your friends are playing in their upcoming 3.00 update.

              Sigh, so many mulligans on this console, but hey, at least it’s usually 1080p.

        • AllSeeingEye

          Sony can’t afford to pay for decent CDN’s to deliver their content. That’s why ISP’s throttle their content. Same thing happened with Netflix a couple of years ago, but difference is, Netflix makes money and they can afford to pay for decent CDN’s. Sony’s done.

      • Head Blackman

        ms said that it was 300k servers setup all around the globe at the console reveal.

        • lygamnt

          Actually with Azure’s ability to use virtual servers it could have way more than 300,00. After reading some of the storys on Crackdown 3 it seems as though cloud game is now ready for prime time. What happened to Xbox One is all the whiners crying it had to be always connected to the internet. When actually it only needed to check in once every 24 hours. They had to change a lot because of that and are finally getting everything up and running. The Xbox One is a great machine as is PS4, problem is Xbox One keeps improving in major way while PS4 isn’t.

      • phar0ahad3

    Ps4 is a last Gen dud of a machine. It is weak compared to the power of the Xbox one fully utilizing cloud technology and the coming dx12. Sony and its last Gen ps4 are holding back the Xbox one and the gaming industry as a whole. Only a matter of time before Microsoft unleashes some real games now. Ps4 is pathetic.

    • Ghoul

      lol someones salty

    • kevin

      Dude your sad caring that much about plastic boxes. I have both systems and love them both but quit acting like the crackdown 3 demo wasn’t in a controlled environment or that it isnt stuck only In mp with severely scaled back destruction for sp. Also while the tech was Def nice and I’m excited to see more it isn’t like it was super mind blowing yes it was a little more realistic physics wise and what not but not like your making it out to be. Also drop the dx12 thing all that’s going to do is make it a little easier for developers to hit certain targets in games it’s not going to magically make the x1 more powerful then the ps4.

      • is4u2p

        No it is going to make it the better optimized of the two systems.

        • pfreak

          No. It’s just not. Believe the marketing bullet points if you need to justify your purchase.

          • is4u2p

            I have both consoles and I have seen what Mantle can do… This is even better optimized than Mantle!

            Also, the tiled resources support that was lacking in DX11 has actually been built into the Xbox One APU and it is now getting support in DX12. The ESRAM was built to take advantage of the tiled resources and that was discussed at launch.

            This console was designed at the lowest level to be optimized with DX12 and Sony pretty much brute forced their console.

            Now, if you believe it won’t be that’s fine if you need that to justify your purchase.

          • is4u2p

            It actually is going to be the better optimized console. The makers of Metro Redux even noted that features they used in DirectX 11 were hard to find the equivalent for in the PS4 dev kit so they had to manually work around them. DirextX 12 is only going to add to this issue and yet the PS4 is supposed to be the easier console to develop for.

        • kevin

          Keep believing that lol

          • is4u2p

            Why would that surprise you?

            Microsoft has been working with X86 development and API development for years. Sony? they have modified the OpenGL API for years but, this is the first time in an X86 System.

            Also, the Raw PS3 numbers were said to be 150% more powerful than the Xbox 360 but, better optimization by MS made that pretty much a non factor.

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      My xbox one could barely load all the candy coated screens in a reasonable time. found myself waiting on crap I don’t want to see load up. PS4 is usually waiting on me, it’s lightning fast!

      Own both, mostly they are the same. Small personal preferences between each. Pull M$ out of your ass and observe then rate, blind faith is for religion.

      Wonder how cloud gaming works when they aren’t 15 feet from the server?

      • KiNZ620

        Umm have you seen the Xbox one windows 10 UI that I get in September. It’s brilliant. Xbox one UI still better than ps4 although it is a tad slower for the short term.

        • Lacktone

          Yeah I have both. Honestly this is the first generation I’ve preferred ps! Been hardcore xb fan from the original and haven’t owned ps since ps1. But I feel like it’s been better. Maybe because ms just put out crap that wasn’t ready just to compete. Maybe they are finally getting near finished with the xb1. Hopefully I’ll actually turn it on again. Been months since i’ve even powered it up! I just can’t imagine more UI candy will help it. But I hope I’m wrong. Do like the idea of cross platform. Just wish it was for everything! One day! Ps and xb people should get to face off online!

          • KiNZ620

            Hmmm interesting..i Had ps4…no longer. Don’t think MS is anywhere near done building Xbox one. But I certainly think its better than ps4 already. Anyways…to each their own right.

And given Microsoft’s lengthy history of overpromising and under-delivering, it’s safer to bet on it not working properly. Yes folks, they really are this desperate to find some kernel of worth in dat limp bone.

  • Revolver Ocelot

    Top lel. Xdrones have been hyping up this cloud dullness for the last two years, starting with Titanfall’s crap bot AI and now this is the latest iteration of disappointment. Third parties don’t care. Simple as that.

  • Nettrick Nowan

    So, theoretically, online, we’d have the PS4 version running at 1080p without massive destruction while the Xbox One version would run at 900p with massive destruction–offline, PS4 1080p, Xbox One 900p neither with massive destruction?

    Unless Sony rents a cloud. Then we’re back to where we are now.

  • AllSeeingEye

    Did you know that Microsoft’s Azure platform generates more money in one year than what Sony has generated in five in profits? That’s insane. Sony has no answer for MS cloud infrastructure. None. And they most likely never will.

    • XbotMK1

      Not only is your comment completely delusional and false, but only a brand loyal slave with mental problems would brag about a corporation’s money.

      Sony has their own cloud infastructure and they have enough money for more servers if they want. There is nothing special or amazing about Microsoft’s cloud. It’s incredible how Microsoft and the media can lie to you about the cloud and everyone just eats it up….. nom, nom, nom, nom! Words cannot describe how dumb and pathetic this article is or you Xbox fanboys are.

      One reason why this article is so false and dumb is because devs can’t use this cloud compute because using cloud compute only helps for certain tasks such as low latency memory for destructible objects (Crackdown 3). Crackdown 3 uses a specific game engine developed by Cloudgine. Games have to be specifically designed for the cloud and it doesn’t help every type of game. This cloud compute isn’t helping with graphics (resolution, polygons, textures, character animations). The cloud is storing the data for each building architecture (piece of a building). When the player shoots a building, the cloud sends that data to the console over the internet. Everything else runs on the console. That means the console has to process all of the polygons for each of those pieces of the building in the air. When you use cloud compute like Crackdown does for destructible objects, you’ll have to make graphical sacrifices. That is why it wouldn’t work for every game unless you enjoy low graphical quality cartoons.

      Another reason why this article is dumb is because not every game would be better using cloud compute to help with open world destruction. Uncharted 4, Horizon Zero Dawn, Grand Theft Auto, Just Cause 3, and Rainbow Six Siege have a ton of impressive destruction already. They don’t need cloud compute. Adding cloud compute wouldn’t do anything for them because even if it used cloud compute to add more destructible objects on screen, these games would still have to sacrifice graphical quality.

      Another reason why multiplatform devs won’t use this, is because of server architecture. For example, Sony’s cloud architecture is different from Microsoft’s cloud architecture. Square Enix’s cloud architecture for Final Fantasy XlV is different from the cloud architecture that runs Grand Theft Auto Online. That is why third party devs use their own servers. If a third party dev were to design a game specifically for Sony’s cloud architecture using cloud compute, it wouldn’t run on Microsoft’s cloud architecture.

      This cloud compute used for Crackdown 3 isn’t some simple concept that can be applied to every game. Crackdown 3 is specifically designed for Microsoft’s servers to use cloud compute to manage an open world full of destructible objects (similar to how mmos use the cloud to manage massive open worlds filled with a huge number of players). That is all it is. It doesn’t change the graphical limits of your hardware. Developers can’t design two games with two different game engines just to use cloud compute.

      I think the game will be decent but the destruction isn’t going to add much. I think it will be a gimmick that wears off like Kinect. So calm down.

        @YUSoDumb:disqus

        Question #1: Does Sony own or lease their data centers?

        Question #2: Does Sony have the income stream to build data centers around the world. Remember Microsoft spent $500 million this year to build one Azure Data Center in Ireland.

        Question # 3: Sony and Sony fanboys were calling Phil Spencer a liar and banishing Xbox fans left and right because they claimed what we saw in the Crackdown 3 demo was possible. Now that it is possible, they’re saying it’s possible on the PS4, what’s changed?

        • pfreak

          1) Yes, Sony does both. They own & lease data centers just like MS and just like most global businesses.

          2) Yes, they have more than enough money to do this. In fact, it has already been done. Pay attention.

          3) Yes, PS4 can match and outperform anything thrown at the X1. Offloading to “the cloud”will not make any noticeable impact on games. Notice they still can’t hit 1080p for Christ’s sake?

          I’ll add #4. Crackdown 3 looks no better than SO. Who cares?

            1. False: Sony does not own their own data centers. They lease them through Rackspace.

            http://www.networkworld.com/article/2186653/cloud-computing/sony-division-moves-some-services-from-aws-to-openstack.html

            2. False: Sony still does not have enough money to pay down their debt. Their last quarterly earnings report showed even though they made significant profits in the Playstation Division it still wasn’t able to offset the billion dollar loss from their mobile division. Although Sony’s net income is $650 million dollars this past quarter, remember, MS spends $500 million dollars per data center. So no, Sony cannot keep up with that type of investment.

            3. Mark Cerny came out said what Crackdown 3 proposes wasn’t possible, now that we see that is, what’s changed? You still haven’t answered the question.

      • lygamnt

        Actually moving physics calculations to the cloud could in theory open up better graphics capability. Your the one that sounds like a total fan boy. Sony has sold off most of its major divisions over the last 5 years. They sold their world headquarters to lease it back because they needed money. Microsoft could buy Sony if they wanted to for petes sake. but why would you buy a company that is slowly going under.

    • pfreak

      Did you know the Xbox division has never made a penny, the stockholders hate it and want it spun off or sold, and the company does not devote resources to it? They may have a pile of money – quite frankly, so does Sony – but businesses compartmentalize, Xbox division has a budget & unfortunately due to sales, it’s been slashed.

      • AllSeeingEye

        You’re spewing outdated information. Just last year Nadella, CEO of MS, came out and stated his support for the Xbox brand. Just look at the result. Phil Spencer has become a star and Windows 10 Xbox integration has been a resounding success. The tech behind Crackdown 3 isn’t cheap and MS has doubled down on that tech with the Xbox One platform. Your information was 1. Just a rumor 2. A now outdated rumor.

      • IrritibleGamer

        Xbox has never made money eh? Care to provide proof of that bs? Also, Sony has a pile of money like MS too eh? Ok you’re just an ignorant PS fanboy. smh.

  • XbotMK1

    It looks like this article was obviously written by an upset Xbox One fanboy who knows absolutely nothing about the cloud or how games are made. Nobody is amazed by this cloud compute. We’ve known about this Crackdown 3 demo for the past year. Microsoft and Cloudgine lied about the cloud. It is not making your Xbox One 3 times as powerful. The cloud isn’t helping graphics (resolution, polygons, textures, animations). When you design a game to use the cloud, it has to be designed specifically for cloud compute just like MMOs. That is like demading Square Enix make a version of FFXlV without dedicated servers.There is a big difference between demanding “no parity” with hardware and “no parity” with servers. Words cannot describe how dumb and pathetic this article is.

    One reason why third party devs won’t use this is because using cloud compute for destruction physics wouldn’t work with every game. Unless you plan on every game being a low graphical quality cartoon like Crackdown 3. These Xbox fanboys don’t understand how this works. This cloud compute isn’t helping with graphics (resolution, polygons, textures, character animations). Games like Uncharted, Grand Theft Auto, and Halo are too graphically demanding to use cloud compute for destruction like this. People don’t understand how this tech works. The cloud is storing the data for each building architecture (piece of a building). When the player shoots a building, the cloud sends that data to the console over the internet at 4 megabytes per second. Everything else runs on the console. That means the console has to process all of the polygons for each of those pieces of the building in the air. That is why it wouldn’t work for every game unless you enjoy low graphical quality cartoons.

    Not every game needs cloud compute for open world destruction. Uncharted 4, Horizon Zero Dawn, Grand Theft Auto, Just Cause 3, and Rainbow Six Siege have a ton of impressive destruction. Adding cloud compute wouldn’t do anything for them. Adding more destructive objects on screen with cloud compute would only reduce the graphical quality of these games.

    Another reason why third party devs won’t use this, is because of server architecture. For example, Sony’s cloud architecture is different from Microsoft’s cloud architecture. Square Enix’s cloud architecture for Final Fantasy XlV is different from the cloud architecture that runs Grand Theft Auto Online. That is why third party devs use their own servers. If a third party dev were to design a game specifically for Sony’s cloud architecture using cloud compute, it wouldn’t run on Microsoft’s cloud architecture.

That is all it is. It doesn’t change the graphical limits of your hardware.

    I think the game will be decent but the destruction isn’t going to add much. I think it will be a gimmick that wears off.

    This website has lost all credibility.

    • This Guy

      The game isn’t out yet, nor is it even close to being finished so any opinions as to the graphical quality of the game or the actual hands on experience that this cloud calculated destruction brings to the table is either unknown or has only been experienced by a small group of people who have all been singing its praises including some first party Sony devs.

      Whether it aids the graphical quality by freeing up CPU resources is something that can only be measured in any future games that use this tech. Like any new technology, the initial implementations will always be less refined whereas any later releases will better utilize the freed up number crunches for something else. As we all know, console optimization is a gen long work in progress.

      Also FYI TrollbotMK1, drop the Sony fanboy attitude and maybe people will take you more seriously.

      • IrritibleGamer

        I suspect that XbotMK1 is a Sony employee just as I suspect Revolver Ocelot and Rudero are as well. They’re here to spread their propaganda it’s best just to ignore them.

  • Jecht_Sin

    No parity? Where can I sign the petition? I would love to get it NOW. The xboxers can keep dreaming with the head in the cloud, in the meantime we would get the games for PS4 properly developed.

    And yes, I am in a state of a shock already. It’s indeed shocking to read so much bullshit about a 30 years old technology. Remote Procedure Calls have been implemented by Sun Microsystem in the 1980s. As well as dedicated servers, which are nothing else than what the Cloud is running, were in use since the first MMORPG, Ultima Online, in 1997.

    • XbotMK1

      Words cannot describe how dumb and pathetic this article is or these Xbox fanboys.

      Basically what they’re demading is that Square Enix make two versions of FFXlV. One without dedicated servers and one with dedicated servers.

      That is how desperate and delusional these Xbox fanboys have become LOL

      • This Guy

        How many games have come out where people like yourself and this Jecht_Sin whine because Xbox One is causing parity and the PS4 is not being properly utilized and yet here you say you want nothing to do with it.

        Which is it guys?

        Wait I just figured out why you guys don’t want parity to go away. Because you know that if companies were to develop games that utilized the PS4, there would be no improvement. The games would still be 1080p with stuttery FPS, only then you wouldn’t have anyone to blame but the hardware. So in essence, parity is helping make the PS4 look good, because it’s hiding this mythical “secret sauce” that multi plats are avoiding because of forced parity.

        How far off am I?

        • GameREV7

          Ummm you are 100% correct

  • This Guy

    I would personally love to see all games developed solely for there respective consoles, utilizing the technologies that make them unique. Sadly this would require higher production costs, out sourcing, and extended production time. Also depending on how different each console’s specific offerings are, it would dramatically change the dynamic of the game.

    Hypothetically, if a game was released for X1 and PS4. The dev wanted to take advantage of the cloud processing destruction and say the PS4 still hasn’t implemented this feature, the two games would be very different. The PS4 would likely have a higher res, but the destructibility would be on the X1.

    IMHO this will be used by first party X1 games as well as third party exclusives, often like how blu-ray was properly utilized for exclusive PS3 games last gen.

    • Lacktone

      I think it would mean two half assed versions of games with far more bugs. You know they’d keep the budget the same…

  • andy

    Of course. Look at Portal 2 and its cross play/buy with Steam. If Microsoft were paying for Portal 2 back in the day like they did with Call of Duty and do with other devs that they are cozy in bed with over the last decade like Capcom, we NEVER would have got these features on the PS3 version of the game.

    Then there is the years that Xbox have been throttling their network service i.e. not even letting you do things thus throttling it. Things like limiting size of games, not giving you free games every month, mmos, large player multiplayer games, not even letting you download demos unless you have a premium paid for account.

    And on Xbone they delayed lots of network features to roll it all out smoothly so their service doesn’t cave in (even with the measly console sales they have) like game streaming, being able to even download trails of games at all, giving away games every month, large Free2Play game like Warframe at 20gbs BUT you cannot download if you have a silver account (guess they still don’t want people downloading massive games like this like you could on PS3 for free).

    All these features rolled out slowly across 2014 on Xbone (features that PS3 surpassed for years and were available day one on PS4 of course). And lets not even bring up incredibly awesome next gen features on PS4 like Shareplay and how much bandwidth that must consume. Microsoft are indeed the KINGS of throttling traffic on their console network.

    • This Guy

      It’s a byproduct of owning the lead console of a given gen. All those wonderful things that Sony did last gen only happened because they were trailing in sales to the 360. Fast forward to this gen and the roles are now reversed. Now MS are the ones making all the right moves after falling so far behind and Sony are the ones jacking up their PS+ rates, charging foolish PSNow prices, buying up third party exclusives like CoD and Capcom, gettign all nice and cozy, and basically sitting on their thumbs because they know they can.

    • IrritibleGamer
  • poneros

  • GameREV7

    Yes-no parity with ps4 please. Ps4 is designed to run last gen games at a higher resolution. That’s not next gen, its a waste of my time. Ps4 cant even run 1080p 60fps locked like forza 6. Xbox one, as cloud technology and dx12 come into full utilization, is vastly superior in terms of power and capabilities than ps4. Devs…utilize the full power of the Xbox one, ps4 is weak last gen garbage. Lets move to next gen please.

This cloud tech has been around for years and M$ NEVER cared one shit about the PC gamers, you know, the ones that built their gaming empire. Instead they shoe horn it onto a console with a 12 million user base. If they REALLY cared about gaming and pushing games forward, this would have been on the PC years ago, supporting 100+ million gamers. Pity M$ only cares about one game – monopoly.

    • This Guy

      PC Gamers, oh you mean the player base that’s getting all the Xbox One exclusives and taking advantage of cloud processing as a result thanks to all the work they put into DX12? Those people?

  • KiNZ620

    Why is it that 3 of my 4 gaming bros just sold or traded in their ps4s for Xbox ones ? Well ill tell you…its because the ps4 sucks compared to Xbox one. It’s inferior in exclusives, features, value, online service and future. Cloud processing being utilized for another great Xbox one exclusive and shows another piece of Xbox ones future…along with windows 10, directx12 and a boatload of the best exclusives, features and services. Sorry but as an owner of both ps4 sucks like really badly.

    • JC

      Word.

  • pfreak

    ????? This game looks no better than everything else on Xbox. Stop with the cloud. For one, the X1 is underpowered, “the cloud” isn’t magically improving your games. And second, “the cloud” is daily hackable. I’d just as soon play games than have my credit card info stolen.

    • KiNZ620

      Hmmm underpowered ? That’s the ps4 son. Can it run 1080p at a locked 60fps like forza 6 ? Why is driveclub 20fps with a fifth of the cars, a third of the tracks and not and ounce of customization…and it sucks ? Can it increase its processing power by 20 times like Xbox one is doing withe crackdown 3 ? Uncharted downgraded to 30fps bloodborne and witcher 3 frame rates in the 15-25 range ? Pal ps4 is inferior to Xbox one in every way l, including power. If dev didn’t force parity and used cloud processing and dx12 on Xbox one, ps4 would be a laughing stock which its becoming as we speak.

    • AllSeeingEye

      Where your sources because everyone that went to Gamescon, including the media, disagree highly with your assertions. If you’re going to post ignorant fluff, at the very least post some sources.

  • bastIon8

    Yeah , dx12, cloud processing-3rd party devs that want to make real next Gen games….ditch parity with the weak ps4. Ps4 and Sony are deadbeats leaching off their peasant fan base who bought a lie. It’s frickin hilarious.

  • *Also On PC

    Yes, get rid of parity. The Xbox DONE is a weak, pathetic, last – gen POS of a console reserved only for illiterate moron paupers and unwashed vermin scum. If the PS4 is capable of hitting 1080p then the game should be 1080p, the Xbox shouldn’t be allowed to hold gaming back because of it’s weak, pathetic hardware for morons.

    Xbox DONE is weak, pathetic, last – gen trash for unemployed bankrupt vermin scum and sales prove that. Let the pathetic, non – gaming trash have their 900p games, let the PS4 version be 1080p like the developers intended. :^)

  • datdude

    LOL…a few blocks in a limited multiplayer map falling down unrealistically like lego’s separating has their panties in a bunch? Wow. If that mess is the future of gaming, gaming is in severe trouble. Yikes.

    • KyMorz77

      Tell you what…you go play the trash known as the order 1886 which is ps4s new exclusive showing what it can do. And ill play crackdown 3…you have a deal. That is funny!

  • datdude

    Wow!! First it was Kinect!! Fail. Then it was Titanfall and dem dere cloudzzz. Fail. Next it was Drivatars!! Yes folks, these sheep were giddy over drivatars!! Fail. Now it’s dx12 and lego like unrealistic building separation in a limited multiplayer map, that may or may not work as demonstrated upon release. And given Microsoft’s lengthy history of overpromising and under-delivering, it’s safer to bet on it not working properly. Yes folks, they really are this desperate to find some kernel of worth in dat limp bone. Typical.

    • Logan8

      Datidiot is mad his ps4 is weaker than Xbox one. Double post = real mad. No worries. More remasters coming for ps4 and you always gave the odor and turdclub to hope you over till uncharted at 30fps…ps4 weak pile of turd.

      • datdude

        Another limp one. I think there’s a pill for your shortcomings. Good luck with that. Unfortunately, there is no magic pill for dat limp bone….poor things. All the xbone ever gives them is broken promises and shattered dreams. From kinect, to Titanfall, to drivatars, to dx12 promises and lego block building destruction, their desperation never ends. But at least their desperation provides endless chuckles. LOL.

        • kYjaM9

          Kinect a great accessory, titanfall better than the anything on pos4 to date of including bloodborne that runs at 15fps on the pathetic pos4. Dx12 and cloud capabilities got you jealous boy ? Desperate pos4 boys never learn…see when you enter Xbox one articles to talk trash it mean your jealous. I would be if I had pos4 and not Xbox one.

          • datdude

            LOL..poor thing. Maybe that’s why Sony is crushing your balls with awards, while Microsoft can’t even “win” an award at a show when Sony doesn’t hold a conference!! Poor thing..LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!

              Funny…the odor and trashclub won lots if awards too ! Some real winners ! Pos4 sucky sucky long time for peasant boy like you. Psnow…the odor…trashclub…#betterPSN….no games for very long time. Bwagahahahahah pos4 bitchboy…what an idiot.

              • datdude

                People like you always have a lot of excuses for why you’re getting your ass kicked…..but at the end of the day, your ass is still kicked. #Sonyiswhippingmyass-itisanditskillingme…LOLOLOLOLOL!!! See your proctologist before your poor rectum caves in completely!!!

                • kYjaM9

                  My ass is kicking pos4 peasant ass bitchboy. Take a look at the exclusives, features and value I get over the next 3 months. Compare that to the pathetic pos4…laughable bitch boy. Just like Microsoft install base of several billion across Xbox and all windows 10 devices is kicking Sony bankrupt little install base ass. Tell ur mommy she bought u a pos bitchboy.

                  • datdude

                    LOL!!! More excuses!! The loser actually is talking about “the next 3 months” when Microsoft hasn’t released a AAA exclusive since 2014!!! Install base of “several billion”…LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!! Yes folks, they really are this desperate….but who can blame them. They get less AAA titles, less indies, less 3rd party tie ins, the lower rated exclusives, and less games in future development. Then they try to convince themselves less is more!!!!

                    • kYjaM9

                      Bitchboy since bloodborne at 15fps pos4 had nothing.

                      World of tanks, ori, elite dangerous for starters on Xbox one better than pos4 pathetic 2015 offerings already.

                      Xbox one exclusive metacritic=85

                      Ps4=exclusive metacritic =77.

                      The odor and turdclub hurt real bad bitchboy. You are as pathetic as pos4 game offerings and its laughable online service. Night night bitchboy no time to waste on a peasant ass stench like you.

                      ps4 = several exclusives rated above 90, and many more than xbone rated above 80

                      xbone= not one single exclusive rated above 90, and many less rated above 80 than ps4

                      Son, even your mama is laughing at you now. Run on home and tell her you’ve lost. Again. Don’t worry, she’s used to you being an utter, abject failure!!!!! He sought Metacritic for help, and instead Metacritic fucks him!!!! Sonyiswhippingmyass-itis strikes again!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!

                      Add in bloodborne, mlb the show, ori and rare replay and he’s is right.

                      You seem to have mental issues about your ps4-which honestly kinda sucks.

                    • Ronny877

                      You may be the biggest loser I have ever chatted with. You were talking exclusives….avg them out and Xbox ones score is higher. Mental indeed…got to go !

                    • datdude

                      Wrong again douchebag…average the exclusives and ps4 is on top. Even if your faulty logic were correct…are you actually dumb enough to be trumpeting the fact the xbone has more C, D, and F rated games, and has far less A and B rated games? So you’re trumpeting playing mediocrity? That’s ok son, you can have the mediocre titles…it’s pretty clear the ps4 has the more exceptional titles, hence the ratings. Good luck “winner”…LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!! Yes folks, they really are this dumb.

                    • datdude

                      Wrong again…but keep trying sparky, you’ll be right one of these days. Poor thing. Here you go, since your brain doesn’t seem capable of simple calculations…the official metacritic developer rankings. Good luck escaping that mental institution your trapped in!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!

                    • Ronny877

                      Got to give it to them ps4 loons – they try real hard. If they only had some decent exclusives Sony didn’t suck so bad maybe they wouldn’t troll xbox articles all day. Ps4 must suck pretty bad cause a lot of them seem jealous.

                  • datdude

                    LOL…poor thing hasn’t seen a AAA exclusive since 2014, so you can understand why he’s cranky. Then the dullard has the audacity to bring up “the next 3 months”…LOLOLOLOLOL!!! You’ve been getting your ass kicked in for years!!! The next 3 months indeed!! So, in conclusion, Sony not only has the higher rated library of exclusives, they have more AAA exclusives in development, they have more indies in development, they have better 3rd party tie ins, and the games they release that are also on xbone are better performing in resolution and framerate on ps4? Yeah son, you’re done here. “Install base of several billion” indeed!!! Boy, if the install base is in the billions and they’re still far behind the ps4 in software sales for every major multiplatform title, you really should jump off a bridge!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!! Son, you’ve got billions and billions of tiny holes in your brain, and what little intellect you were born with has long left the station!
