Re: Halo and Cloud Gaming Question

In Response To: Halo and Cloud Gaming Question (MacGyver10)

: I was reading a bit on XboxOne and the cloud based gaming today (super
: excited about it honestly), and ran across this article on ZDNet saying
: Microsoft had been running computer-based cloud gaming for Halo for a
: whole year. This article was written in January of this year. Now does
: this mean Halo 4 has had much to do with cloud-based computing, or they've
: been running Halo5/XBO/One tests for more than year already? I'm confused
: and looking for clarity from either smarter people, or people with more
: time?


: - MacGyver10

I'm a bit confused as well, because I assumed that they would be referring to Azure, not this "Orleans" thing they've mentioned. Maybe Orleans is just a subset of Azure, I dunno.

I think one of the elements of the cloud stuff you see in Halo is the fallback default playlists that appear whenever the main servers are down.
