Cloud computing? same servers for pc & xb1?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all! This is a question about cloud computing. Is cloud computing going to allow me to play lets say bf4 on pc with the same people who buy bf4 on xb1?

Reason why I ask is because i do not know what platform to buy it for but im definitly more towards buying it for pc but none of my rl friends or family have a pc that would be able to handle it.

Thanks!

I wouldn't count on it.
Even if you could, you wouldn't want to. KB+Mouse would obliterate anyone using a controller.

If all of your friends are getting the console version then that may be a better decision.

Actually I heard that since xbone changed its policy it will no longer have cloud computing

I agree with both statements. They very rarely put console and PC in the same match making. I cant remember a game in the last few years that have even done that. It really sucks because I only PC game and most of my friends play both, but they usually get the FPS on console. But after seeing what xbox one and PS4 offer, I can safely say that I wont be going back to console anytime soon.

Ahh I see, great. Thanks for the replies.
I would love to have it for PC, but then again the point of playing online is playing with friends which makes is much more amazing.
I bought BF3 for 360 cuz I told my cousins & friends to get it & we had a blast. I then bought it again for PC when it was on sale & still play it till this day.
So I'm guessing I'll do the same for BF4.

Thanks

I have never played the console version of BF3 but I do have it for pc. I dont think you can do 32v32 on console right? Also, if your PC can run ultra, the gameplay is INCREDIBLE.

Correct, the console doesn't have 32 v 32.
My pc can handle Ultra, but I don't have AA on max, but the game still looks amazing.
That's one of the few games I can still just go home after work, hop on with random people & still have a blast. Which reminds me, I should subscribe to the BF3 server thread so I can add some of you OC's to my friend list. lol

Now that I think about it, I wish I would have bought the 2gb 7850, instead of the 1GB.

I'm running at 1075 core & 5800 memory @ 1.175 vcore.
