What does Microsoft’s Cloud on Xbox One hold for future gaming?
Gamescom has come and left once more. And if there’s anything that can be said: Microsoft brought the house down. With a massive line up of exclusive games coming to Xbox One this year, Microsoft aren’t showing any slowdown heading right into 2016 with another extremely strong lineup. By the end of next year, Xbox One will see [at least] 16 huge exclusive games, many of which are brand new IPs.
For gamers who’ve invested their time and money into Microsoft’s Xbox One, it is starting to pay off. And for those who are still on the fence about snagging themselves a next generation console, Microsoft have left little to no doubt in gamers’ minds after the mind blowing E3 and Gamescom’s explosion of games.
One of the biggest proving grounds Microsoft had yet to trek with their audience was the power of their cloud service. A service that has been promised to make Xbox One the most powerful console ever created. The fruits of that labor had begun to show when that power was proven during the Crackdown 3 demo. This game goes back to its roots of a “super cop” with high jumping abilities, fighting crime lords, saving victims, and collecting orbs. But a lot more fun than Crackdown 2.
