Xbox One Would “Absolutely” Benefit From Cloud Computing

The future is bright if the Cloud comes to life.

Speaking out recently on The Inner Circle Podcast, Stardock CEO Brad Wardell has spoken on how the Cloud can bring benefits to the Xbox One. The Cloud was one of the most talked about features of the Xbox One and it’s yet to be used in any meaningful way.

Wardell thinks that the Cloud would “absolutely” benefit the Xbox One given that it’s apparently faster to draw information from the Cloud than it is the Xbox One’s DVD Drive. Solid State Drives (SSD’s) would be a far better solution, but this is an unlikely dream.

A simple given example of how the Cloud could benefit games was given, if players were taking on a computer in a game of Chess, the AI would compute its moves in the Cloud while the console itself would only have to handle the rendering of the game. Because of this, Wardell thinks the Cloud has “endless numbers” of applications in the gaming space.

Cloud computing was, and still is, a viable solution to many problems faced by video game developers and programmers, so it’s still a mystery why it’s yet to be properly implemented in at least an optional way.
