    Xbox One to have unlimited cloud storage


    Microsoft's gaming console, the Xbox One, has now had yet another new feature revealed: unlimited cloud storage.
    It's no secret that Microsoft has one of the most powerful cloud services with Azure, SkyDrive and other products and services, and the cloud is being used extensively with the Xbox One to power some of the computing and rendering processes, but that's not all. Another lesser-known use of the cloud for the device is that it can be utilized as an extension of the hard drive, storing and retrieving game data.
    While this feature is not an entirely new one as it existed previously on the Xbox 360 with the caveat that it could only store game data and achievements due to being limited to 512 MB of storage, it does come with some drastic changes on the One. A few of them include the storage limit being upped to infinity, and the file types being stored becoming more diversified. The release by Microsoft reads as follows;
    Xbox Live offers Xbox One unlimited storage space in the cloud for all Xbox Live members to store numerous types of Xbox Live content, including your profile, games, Achievements and entertainment. This content is stored and saved in the cloud so you can automatically access it anywhere, anytime, no matter where you are
    Previous generation Xbox users had to subscribe to an Xbox Live Gold account to be able to make use of this feature, Microsoft has now stated that this service will now be available for all users whether Gold or Silver.
    Along with the hint that some of the family sharing features might return as well as opening up the store to indie developers, the Xbox One may launch as a viable product and indeed sell as muchas analysts predict.

So how is this any different? Except for them making it accessible to all live users (not just gold members) and allowing for INFINITE storage? If the content is already in the "CLOUD", shouldnt it be a no brainer that you can access your content from other devices?

    Koaster style! Lol...anyways, the only new content you're storing up there will be your game saves

What they are actually saving from your console, so that you can access it anywhere, is what is going in the cloud. Everything else is already there regardless whether you purchase it or not.

    It's not lies, it just simply is what it says. What you purchase on XBL will be accessible via the cloud storage. Game saves and your profiles, etc. will be as well. I'm pretty sure that's what the 360 does now, like PSN+ except that they're adding the games and video/audio that you may purchase via XBL as well. That's pretty cool.

    All you have to decide is what to do with the time give to you....

    I never said it wasn't items not purchased off Live. . I quoted that part because Fear said that :

    So I just pointed out that it's more diversified than before:

    LOL. Whatever. PR and nothing more. If I buy a digital game on this console. Go to a friends house, log into my account, I can download the game there, and play it. It isn't STORED on the cloud per se, as that term is being spun as PR, plain and simple.

    Actual use of the cloud is for items that aren't originally there; i.e. game saves, profiles, etc. Games and media are always in the "cloud", right now.

    Not on xbox360. You can only do game saves. When you download a demo or game it doesn't even give you the cloud as an option.

    facepalm.

    Dude. you're sucked into this term of cloud...

    It doesn't need to give me the option. The freakin' data is on their servers, aka cloud.

    On the Xbox One, when I download a game, and do some cloud option, it isn't uploading my game to the cloud. The game is already there, just like it is today.

    yeah you can... every 360 game i ever bought is stored on XBL servers ("the cloud"!)... if i wanna play it i just dl it back to my HDD... its exactly the same... Its just spun so it seems like the cloud is a personal storage... its not. i cant upload all my music and movies from my PC. if you wanna play a game... it still has to be off your HDD (so you have to DL from the cloud... unless you can store all your games on the cloud and run them without them being on your HDD...)

    I know that all info is stored in the cloud. Now, you have the option as a user to save a game on your hard drive or use the cloud. We don't have that right now with xbox360. The cloud doesn't store your personal game. It only stores user information related to the game....meaning it knows if you have downloaded and played it before.

    No, it's just some of you just can't seem to get it. It's not exactly the same as xbox-360.
