Xbox One features with 600% Forza 5 claim

We have some interesting developments to share with Xbox fans now, especially those who have already placed a pre-order for the Xbox One console. We have heard about the potential processing power available in the system thanks to cloud features, but now the developers of Forza have made a somewhat ambitious claim by saying that the AI in the upcoming racer now has 600% more capability thanks to the Xbox One hardware.

For those that are unaware, Forza 5 is going to come with a feature that will allow players to race off against AI ghosts. Creative director Dan Greenawalt has been speaking in a recent interview about these ghosts, saying that the Xbox One hardware will now allow them to create even smarter AI than previously possible on Xbox 360.

It’s all down to the cloud features of the Xbox One apparently, as Greenawalt explains:

“So we can now make our AI instead of just being 20%, 10% of the box’s capability, we can make it 600% of the box’s capability,”

He also added that with the ability to put data on the cloud, it now frees up even more resources to make the graphics inside Forza 5 even better. We’re guessing this will be a similar tactic used for other games – you only need to look at Ryse from Crytek to get a basic idea of the massive boost in visual quality compared to Xbox 360.

It obviously sounds very impressive, but 600% sounds like a rather farfetched number. Then again, it wouldn’t have been mentioned by Turn10 without good reason. If you have been paying attention to the technical side of the Xbox One hardware, let us know your thoughts on the quality of games possible.

Are you excited about the future of Xbox gaming?
