    The Discussion

      The cloud storage is one of my favourite announcements from E3. However, is it a backup copy that sync's to a local storage copy or that is the only location of the save file? I'm just thinking of when my internet goes down and my saves/profile are in the cloud. Can I no longer play?

    • Steve Wortham

      Agreed.  I always thought the complete profile information & saved games would be the perfect thing to store online.  Good to hear it's happening.

      Pretty sure it is like Mesh, you have local and synced with cloud. So you have both local and cloud.

      SkyDrive integration with Xbox is awesome news! It's something I've been asking about for a long time. Does that include Zune content? It needs too! SkyDrive already has a built-in video player for streaming any WMV files uploaded.

      Now that would be good if that's the case.
