So in short, Sony can't figure it out, so they say it can't be done.  ok.

Cerny, a fan of computer programming and arcade games, started in the game industry at the age of 17 when he joined Atari in 1982. In those earlier days of professional game development, teams were small and each member was responsible for a wider range of roles than today.

Yeah this guy wouldn't be able to figure it out. Did you even watch the video? You replied awfully quickly.

Why, none of his career has any relevance to that, and it's no like he's biased or anything.

Only on Neowin

 

I'm sure you know more about hardware, software development and the games industry.

Great. More flamebait to fuel the fire.

Considering flamebait/FUD/trolling on Neowin seems to be anything that is critical of the Xbox One, sure.

I suspect he's probably downplaying it as a) The PS4 hasn't gone full tilt at the cloud thing the same way XB1 has and b) Its difficult to tell at this point just how much the cloud can do and I suspect there is a tiny bit of corporate flame baiting in there too. I guess if the cloud thing takes off there is no reason the PS4 couldn't add this on later (at the massive cost of installing the back end infrastructure).

But that is how you have decided to post this piece. As flamebait.

You could have chosen a different topic title about the the whole interview, instead you took one single line from it and turned it into this.

 

These 'console wars' are ridiculous. We are all gamers and there will be great games on both consoles and true gamers should rejoice from whichever side of the fence they're on.

Of course it's won't.

Cloud computing is one of the largest buzz words to come about from this generation, you'd best get used to discussing it especially when some of the claims about it are hardly small claims.

 

Neowin has pretty much turned into a forum of you better not post anything that contradicts my companies statements or it's flamebait.

Cloud is untested. Of course he has a bias, but you can't dismiss his opinion out of hand. He is experienced and his opinions are, at the very least, worth listening to. If he is proven wrong, the internet won't let him forget it.

Yes I agree that it is one of the largest buzz words this generation, but to say it won't work when we all (including Cerny) don't know what Microsoft are doing with it is just silly.

There's a big difference between posting "contradicting" articles and posting blatantly biased/slanted posts.  Guess which you do over and over.  You just can't seem to stop yourself from taking potshots at anything outside of HOLY SONY.

 

Cerny may have an extensive background in the industry but he's not exactly unbiased.

Yeah that being whether or not you guys can distinguish the difference. As I've said ANYTHING posted in a critique of MS is immediately biased/slanted/flamebait/trolling or as HawkMan would put it, FUD.

 

It's almost a social experiment now on Neowin to see if you can post anything at all in a critical light of the Xbox or MS and see if it can be discussed with whatever evidence or opinion that it's displaying. It doesn't seem to matter if it's coming from votes in polls, industry veterans, direct competition, established development studios, blogger opinion, or plain old forum user opinion, it's all automatically something in part of one of those categories above.
