This is PR - pushed by MS obviously - to try and get people to see the "benefits" of being always online. And it's a load of horseshit. Even on DSL whenever I connected to anything online for MS' network my ping as always 150-250ms. So how the fuck is their cloud going to help my game with that sort of latency? Those cockbags may not be lying outright but they're certainly being disingenuous by not telling the whole truth.

Yeah, exactly. It's not that it's doing that much more for AI calculations, it's just that it gives the game that many more data points from which the AI can process from. It does improve the system, sure, but how they word it makes it sound like it's providing some sort of performance boost, which it isn't. In fact, depending on how it's coded, it could likely make the whole thing slower.
