Microsoft has been touting “cloud power” as one of the main features for its Xbox One game console — but what exactly does it mean? Today, the company released a new infographic, detailed in the link below, that explains what it’s all about.
By uploading data through the “cloud” servers, players are able to keep track of progress in certain games. Forza Motorsport 5, for instance, will allow you to challenge a network of opponents, including your friends— even if they aren’t online at the time.
The infographic also explains that 300,000 servers — the latest and most reliable cloud infrastructure to date — will be ready when the Xbox One launches this fall. Background downloading will also be available, so you can get right into playing your games, rather than waiting for them to finish loading up.
The Xbox One releases later this year.
