  • Microsoft Claims the Cloud Makes the Xbox One Four Times as Powerful

    The Marketing Director for Xbox France, Hugues Ouvrard, gave an interview with French publication, Le Nouvel Observateur. In it, he discusses how the Xbox One is a lot more powerful than the PlayStation 4, despite the apparent hardware shortcomings.


    The Cloud. Prepare yourself for this one.
    The PS4 is not more powerful. There is a confusion about the difference in the number of pixels, but the definition of certain defined by the publisher, not the console. Especially thanks to the power of cloud - we have installed 300,000 servers - the capabilities of the console are multiplied by four. So if you connect the console to the Internet, then the Xbox One is the most powerful.

    Yes, the console suddenly becomes FOUR TIMES more powerful thanks to the power of the Cloud! I'm sure the Cloud is great and all for saves and non-critical gameplay elements, but to make such outrageous claims is just mind blowing. Microsoft, please just fire everyone in your public facing marketing department. They're doing more harm than good these past few months!

    My head seriously hurts. It's like they just don't get it. "It" being "anything."
