GDC 2015: The Current State of Cloud Gaming or Why Azure has Sony Whipped

By Brad YaleMar 12, 2015

Last week, I had the distinct pleasure to represent InformIT.com/Pearson Education at GDC 2015. While at the game developers conference, I gained further perspective into a growing line of thought which has been growing in my mind for a while. As a Playstation guy through and through, this saddens me to say, yet: even though Sony Playstation has made excellent leaps forward in terms of providing the PS4 market with cloud gaming, the Microsoft XBox One has the competition whipped.

My contention going into GDC 2015: The Microsoft XBox One is a cloud computing platform in the form of a console while the Sony PS4 is a console reaching into the cloud gaming space.

My contention leaving GDC 2015: Not only is the Microsoft Xbox One way ahead of the Sony PS4 in terms of cloud gaming, the Azure cloud platform is flat out, incredible.

Here's why.
