Xbox One Remains Committed to Cloud After Policy Shift

Xbox One(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Microsoft remains committed to cloud for the upcoming Xbox One, the company’s Phil Spencer recently confirmed.

The commitment arrives shortly after Microsoft moved to change planned policies for the console set to be released this November.

“Yes, we remain committed to cloud features in our 1st party games,” Spencer commented via Twitter when asked about the issue.

On Wednesday, Microsoft signaled that an internet connection wouldn’t be required to play offline titles. The company also reversed its resell policy on used games following some backlash. “There will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360,” stated the company’s Don Mattrick via Xbox Wire.

Xbox One is expected to use cloud to allow users to access the console’s games library without requiring them to always insert game discs.
