Imagine what you could do if your game had the vast power of cloud computing: build and destroy shared game worlds at an epic scale; deliver cloud-based learning AI, so no one ever plays alone; make bigger multiplayer games with consistently available, dedicated game servers. Game developers have long recognized the benefits of moving portions of their game code to the server, but server development has historically been challenging and cost prohibitive. Achieving the power and scale that is required to meet the demand of online gaming in a cost-effective way is a nontrivial problem to resolve. With Xbox Live Compute, Microsoft is providing developers with the tools and infrastructure they need to embrace building games as a service - games that leverage the power and availability of the ever expanding cloud.
Attendees will learn about the key advantages to moving their games to the cloud, as well as best practices for success. Additionally, they will hear about the strategic investments Microsoft is making in cloud-based game development, and the impact these investments will have on game development in the future.
