Its name is “Titanfall,” and its importance to Microsoft is immense. Microsoft is hoping the game will spur sales of its Xbox One game console and give its video-game business new energy in its big battle with Sony's PlayStation. The software giant also hopes “Titanfall” will also show how cloud computing can reach down and become part of just about everyone’s lives. The game pulls data, graphics and other instructions down from Microsoft’s Window Azure network so that the game participant can get more out of the game. One feature of the game is that players must all play online. “Titanfall” was released Tuesday after previews around the country on Monday night.
