@JorgeLuisBorges to give some detail to the answers given to your original question. Azure isn't the only large cloud service, there is also google cloud and AWS (from amazon).|
Already naughty dog use AWS to run the dedicated servers for Uncharted 2 & 3
Azure is available to other companies to rent server time the same as AWS and GC but MS might block the sale to Sony devs (or they may not after all turning away paying customers is never a good idea)
The advantage that X1 does have it that there are cloud features built into SDK and MS (appear to be) offering a discounted rate to devs making games on X1. It's also possible that some of the custom chips in the X1 (move engines, data compressors) will help in getting the most out of the cloud.
