Cloud storage arrives on Xbox 360

A handful of Arcade titles reportedly now support the feature

Microsoft has begun introducing the Xbox 360 cloud data storage it announced at E3 last month.


It's now possible to recover gamertags and save data across different consoles, although it currently only works for a small selection of Xbox Live Arcade titles, according to Pocket Lint.

The full service will bring an end to lugging around saves via hard-drives and memory units if you go over to your mates. Microsoft Points, friend lists and achievements will also be stored in the cloud.

Xbox Live VP Marc Whitten said last month. "We are making it easier for you to sign into your Xbox Live account from any console at any time to access your game saves and full profile, including items such as Microsoft Points to make purchases, Achievements and friends.

"Cloud storage will allow you to enjoy the same great Xbox Live gaming experience even when you're not in your own living room by giving you the option to store your game saves securely in the Xbox Live cloud instead of on a portable memory unit or your console's hard drive.

"Gone are the days of gamertag recovery. Now all you need to do is sign in, no matter where you are."
