If you didn’t know that the Xbox One had been built with the future of gaming in mind, Microsoft has released a new video this week which really attempts to hit home. We’ve heard a lot about the cloud lately this past week, but now we have an intimate video from Microsoft to show you, which gives examples why the Xbox One in Microsoft’s opinion – is future proof.
If you are a gamer that is still sitting on the fence as to which console is best for you this Holiday season, you’ll probably find this video very interesting. It’s obvious that both companies need to hype up their respective systems in order to generate interest, but can Microsoft’s cloud really do all of the features with ease that we keep hearing about?
It sounds very impressive from what we have heard from Microsoft so far, but then gamers are also skeptical at the same time as most would simply put it down to ‘PR talk’ without any substance. In this video, we hear further details on how Xbox One features such as the cloud, Kinect and SmartGlass have helped and will continue to help in making the system future proof.
To pick out an interesting couple of things from Albert Penello during the video, listen to this at the 4 minute mark:
“Being built for the future is one of the principles that we had when we built the Xbox One. We want to build a system that preserved the best of console gaming, so that developers can write to the metal, they can continue to optimize, they can continue to build better looking games over time and also have this part of the system reserved for the future.”
It’s clear that Microsoft are very proud of their cloud capabilities in relation to providing a system to gamers with the future in mind. But are you impressed by all of the talk, compared to what the PS4 will be able to do with the likes of Gaikai streaming technology and their own cloud?
Enjoy the video below and let us know if you think both systems will be ‘future proof’ in a way, or if it is just all talk.
