ARS Technica - Ars also talks to Microsoft about the integration of Kinect and RAM allocation.
I really hope it does, coz currently is lacks everything.
??? I'm not following what is this everything that it lacks?
Microsoft sells you a box for $400 or whatever. Then imagines it is economical for them to have 3x the performance your box has, in the cloud, for every single user that happens to be connected to Xbox live and playing a game simultaneously. Which is easily a million or more at any one time for a popular game if the console manages to sell well enough. Hmm. That doesn't smell like BS at all. They are talking about supplying over 3 teraflops in the cloud for every online user? Impossible right now and the near future. Heck if you just had one teraflop for a million users at once in the cloud, that's one exaflop. ONE MILLION TERAFLOPS. ONE THOUSAND PETAFLOPS. The most powerful distributed computing network in the world only just manages this with a huge amount of machines. Remember, Microsoft want to build a network that they entirely own with at least 3 times that performance! The most powerful single computer in the world has 'only' 30 petaflops. It cost $100 million dollars.
Lol what? I dont think everyone knows how technology works
wow xbox 1 has already failed before launch,AMAZING 4>1
Cloud power sounds like a bunch of bull sheet!
Separate power brick. Does anyone know if the PS4 will have a separate power supply?
Even if this cloud power was true (i'll believe it when I see it) XBone still won't have enough quality 1st party exclusive's, and the PS4 will. When M$ tell you they'll have 15 exclusive titles in the first year of Xbone, you'd better believe that some of them will be Kinect titles.
