It is amazing how some older videos make a lot more sense a few months later, once they’re put in perspective, and this includes a Microsoft Cloud Gaming Prototype for Xbox One that we now know was a demo of Crackdown 3 gameplay technical abilities.
You can see Microsoft’s cloud tech demo in the video below and while this isn’t full blown Crackdown 3 gameplay for Xbox One, it’s certainly the first time gamers got to see the project and most people didn’t even know this was Crackdown 3. The E3 2014 trailer can be seen in the second video as well.
The YouTube page for Microsoft’s tech demo has comments a couple of months old, but there’s now plenty of fresh feedback just a few hours old after many gamers realizing this is in fact Crackdown 3.
We still want to see a nice long Crackdown 3 Xbox One gameplay video, but for now this clearly confirms Crackdown 3 will be using the cloud. The destruction elements look great and this opens up fan imagination, and many want to now see how this will benefit Xbox One in detail.
Microsoft’s cloud processing will handle a lot of the load, which then allows the Xbox One to keep away from processing and frame-rate problems.
@Xone_br33 Yes, build demo was early crackdown work.

The tweet above is by Microsoft’s Phil Spencer, as you can see he also confirms this early demo is Crackdown Xbox One. We still have a long wait until the release window, somewhere in 2015, but this is good thanks to a lot more development needing to be done.
Are you looking forward to some crazy destructive environments in Crackdown 3 on Xbox One?
