No one is giving you anything. By tying performance to the cloud they are tying you to their service and gaining ultimate control over the console they sold you. You don't own in any real way except having physical possession. What runs on it, or even it if runs at all, will be completely up to Microsoft.

So let me guess, you have a smartphone? Android, iOS, or win phone? Well let me tell you that you don't own that either. They all can be remotely blocked, apps removed, storage erased, and yes it has happened before.

Can you really compare a phone to what might be your gaming rig? rolleyes.gif

Hurray for not owning stuff. Because that's what we all want and not a capable machine that needs just electricity to run.

I see all of these older games that I still play and I'm terribly upset that I own them and can do whatever I want. Except for the multiplayer that is because the servers are no longer there. But still, If it were that I couldn't play them at all, singleplayer included, I would have been so much happier.

This idea of hassle free gaming, where you simply install the game at your leisure and play is antiquated and I'm glad we're getting rid of it.
No, bothersome accounts, micro-macro-transactions, singleplayer that doesn't work offline, paying twice or three times for the same game - this is the future.

We don't all have bulky hands and as any OCN'er would agree bulky hands < slim long fingers.

What is bulky about the xbox 360 controller? It is the most comfortable controller i have ever used.

My hands are the same size as girls I know.

The volume is like twice as big as the PS controller and it hold a battery pack on the place where your fingers are supposed to go.
It feels like you're holding a brick and I played quite a bit of Battlefront and Halo on the orig Xbox then a bit of COD on the Xbox360 well battery pack xD

Point being you're either used to it or like it more it is just so oversized

This has been annoying me for a while, isnt this grid computing with cloud storage rather than "cloud computing"?

this is just straight up lying. sure its ok if he says that some users will get a boost but claiming psysics and cloth calculations can be done via internet without latency IS LYING !!!
and claiming x4 the power is so much BS, there is no way my 2mb connection can add real power to my system without latency.

Sony on the other hand, the power they offer is actually there.

of course its BS.

the problem with cloud BS and all the other endless tech BS is that unless you the tech person informs the non tech person then they will just lap it up.


its upto OCN to fly the flag of common sense and freedom of information exchange without DRM thumb.gif
