nice! cloud game saving is a great feature to have.

isnt it just as easy to save to a thumb drive?

banditgoon2720d ago

it would be easier to save to a thumb drive. My problem with thumb drives, and I use them alot at work, is leaving them behind when I have to go somewhere else.

Imagine going to a buddys house to play a game that you have saved on a thumb drive and when you get there you realize that you forgot the drive at home! Been there, done that and it sucks.

For those with older Xbox 360s this will be a big feature in case the Xbox breaks or RRoDs. No need to worry about HDD info swapping anymore.

This is a huge announcement, should have been in the conference.

are you kidding me? and steal the spotlight of disney wonderland kinext? no way!

People who disagreed dont understand sarcasm.

Odd indeed, how did they decide not to add this to the conference?

Misterhbk2720d ago

Perhaps they figured since it was an already known feature of the PS3 there was no point? I don't know, I can't tell how these guys think whatsoever.

kneon2720d ago

That's probably it. Unless you do it much better then it just looks like a me too move.

But there is room to do it better. The PSN cloud save isn't automatic, you need to manually copy saves to PSN. I'm sure they will fix that eventually but if that's already a feature on live then they should have talked about it.

Why wasn't this in the conference?!

Active Reload2720d ago

They were probably strapped for time. I don't know how long they're allowed to be up there. I wouldn't be surprised if more stuff gets announced or whatever.

Why was this not shown in the Keynote speech?
