Xbox One cloud offers “600% more AI capability” according to Forza 5 developers
During an interview with Official Xbox magazine, Alan Hartman and Turn 10’s creative director Dan Greenawalt revealed that they believe the Xbox One cloud will offer “600% more AI capability”.
Though the two state that Microsoft never ordered them to make use of any specific platform feature (they were reportedly “Asked” rather than “told”) to show what the console can do, the company felt that it has a responsibility to test the console’s mettle.
They specifically tested out the Xbox One cloud system, and were impressed. According to Mr. Hartman, “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. Put it in the cloud and free up that 10% or 20% to make the graphics better – on a box that’s already more powerful than we worked on before.”
Could they be overestimating the cloud’s capabilities, or will this truly make the AI that much better?
