Not to give Sony a pass here either with this type of BS. Everyone seems to forget that Sony has made these types of pie in the sky “cloud power!!!” promises too. It’s not even a “feature exclusive” to the Xbone, so I am not sure why it keeps getting touted out as one. Really the only difference here is Sony is focusing on game streaming and remote play, which are far more realistic and achievable with current technology and broadband infrastructure.
Well I mean it's not just achievable, it's already happening with OnLive and, of course, Gaikai which Sony bought. So it's not far fetched nor theoretical mumbo jumbo like Microsofts considering that remote play is already at work with the PS3 and Vita/PSP.
Interesting. I didn't know that. Wonder if the reasoning is similar to what happened with Warcraft 3 when it got rebooted. Things were shifting a little too far away from the normal gameplay concepts of the series. Took it back and closer to what gamers were used to and was proven to sell.
I imagine it's the complete opposite. They started development, what, six years ago, when the MMO market was drastically different. It would make sense that they'd have to start over if all their concepts were created when the WOW formula still worked.
So last time I logged onto Wow was Feb 2012. I am not going to get into the Panda ex-pac and I think WoW is officially on a downwards arc. I say this as I see subscribers down about 20% and pretty sure I read Panda was the last ex-pac they plan to do for WoW.
Any replacement out there I should check out?
Wow has been on a downward arc for a bit. I guess you could try some of the F2P ones. Terra, RIFT, etc. Nothing to lose by doing so. The revised FF XIV comes out soonish as well. I got a copy for 22.50 from Green Man Gaming...the only reason why I bought it was how cheap it was.
Yes, and Microsoft told me that the Xbox One has 5 Billion transistors. That sure means a lot. Talk is cheap, when I see gameplay performance improve from when you're connected to the cloud vs not connected then I'll concede. Until then it's nonsense. Poor PC gamers though, won't have the power of the cloud with their overclocked haswells and sli titans for Titanfall.
