We recently had a chance to sit down and talk with John Bruno, Lead Program Manager on Xbox Live about the upcoming Xbox Live Compute. In our discussion, the benefits to the different types of genres was brought up. While it wasn't easy for Bruno to answer, he did offer some comments on how Turn 10 Studios has decided to utilize it for Forza Motorsport 5.
"I think that what [Turn 10] has been able to do is very unique to Forza. I think it’s gotten a lot of good value out of the cloud," he told us.
"[With] an open-world game it’s a different set of values, in that case, the values being as many players as I can get into this world. So their goals may be totally different. With Forza, they wanted their multiplayer to be very solid, they wanted a good number of cars, and they wanted to make this ability to have this adaptive AI with the Drivatar."
Where do you think we'll see the most benefits from Xbox Live Compete?
