At E3, AusGamers sat in on an "Xbox One 101" session outlining some of the engineering feats the team at Redmond has been able to get out of the console and its cloud service.
During a Q&A at the end though, we asked just what their ambitious Cloud system would mean for the geographically and infrastructure-challenged, like Australia and New Zealand.
"Microsoft has data centres around the world, so Cloud Compute Services are not something that you should think about on a country-by-country basis," explained incubation and prototyping group manager, Jeff Henshaw. "We have deployed our data centres geographically so that they can service the load for categories of countries all around the world.
"So we have some of the best reach of any other company on the planet to be able to make sure that the Cloud Services that we offer are what we consider [to be] ubiquitous and will be available [to] all markets."
It still sounds a bit too good to be true, but the term "ubiquitous" does have us intrigued.
