    Gamesindustry: Xbox Live Compute (Cloud Servers) offered free to devs

    This is HUGE!!!!!


    Took from Gaf:

    http://www.gamesindustry.biz/article...ference-engine

    It means persistent worlds, improved AI, better rendering and dedicated servers for every multiplayer game on the platform. And it's all being offered to developers for free.

    **Warning: this article contains positive outlooks and opinions on MS and the Cloud

    Statement from Albert in other thread:

    Also to be clear. One of the benefits of publishing games on Xbox One – ALL game developers get Dedicated Servers, Cloud Processing, and “storage” (for save games) free.

    If you want to do dedicated servers on other platforms, you have to prop them yourself. But on Xbox One, while developers can choose to use their own methods, we make it available to everyone.

    There should be no confusion on this point. We do not charge developers for Dedicated Servers.

    "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"

    Ahh.. too bad that link isn't any good.

    The actual premise is that when the rent Azure service, they get the dedicated servers, cloud processing, and storage for save games; free.

    I'll laugh my ass off if anyone actually thinks Microsoft is supplying free dedicated servers, cloud processing, etc.... LOL
