    It was one of the changes made when they dropped their DRM and always online plans.
    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    Isn't region free the norm? 360 is region free right?

    Dedicated servers is VERY cool.

    The 360 is region free but games are region locked.

    There are a lot of games out there, Japanese ones too, that are region free and ripe for the import.

    I'm not trying to advertise, but I recommend http://www.play-asia.com/ if you are curious to see what games you can import, there is subcategories by region and each game says if its region locked or not


    And I'm not calling 'Cloud' a feature until I actually see it do something useful and not just be some PR buzzword

    No, it has a method for region protection which a lot of the games use, but there are some games that were never region protected.

    [Edit] Okay, so what DarkVincent07 just posted

    Yeah, I've tried using Play-Asia.com all the time. But the thing is tho is that most all of the games released exclusively in Japan are region-locked. Which is kind of why I am really excited about this announcement.

    Im seriously thinking of keeping an Xbox One when i get them due to dedicated servers, Do we know if it's only MS doing dedicated servers for everygame?

    so it's not just a PR buzzword.

    Hell, explain the X1 version. They don't say anything about what those 'nice-ities' will be.

    It's funny that with all of the talk about the cloud, no one, even MS, says exactly how it is being used.

    I call shenanigans.

    I agree. Only the most gullible are buying into this fairytale.

    Go to the link and read it. Dev explains it.

    When asked if Xbox One’s cloud computing capabilities would help TitaFall, Respawn developers had this to say:
    “You couldn’t make this game without having that kind of dedicated server support.”
    Not only that, but since Respawn won’t be using the Xbox cloud on the PC version of TitanFall they say the PC version won’t be as good as Xbox One version. Or at least they hint at that. They said:
    “We won’t get all the nice-ities on PCs that you get on Xbox One. There will be some re-engineering things.”

    PC doesn't need cloud power. PC has raw power. If it looks inferior on PC, it's because Microsoft wished it so.

    so, along with the above..

    Improved Matchmaking system.
    Improved rep system on XBL.
    XBL Gold account sharing on one console.
    Improved controller.
    F2P games on XB1.
    App snapping (possible to have say a game running and youtube showing how to get past the tricky bits).
    Game sharing on the digital side.
    Instant upload of game moments.
    Play games whilst your match is being setup.
    Smartglass use in games.
    Voice and gesture control via Kinect.
    Instant swapping from movie to game.

    anything else to add?

    do we really need to talk about PC and 360 in an Xbox ONE thread?

    It's not one of those "could-be-rights." PC definitely has the raw power to do the real-time lighting the Xbox One needs latency-ridden cloud servers to fix. And if these servers work anything like EA sports titles, cloud-computed lighting will be quickly discontinued for that particular game so that newer games can make use of the servers.
