Leave it to Microsoft to make the Cloud Storage feature useless

Doesn't sync with your storage, so you have to manually copy saves to the cloud. Awful.

I love it when people don't read their non-disclosure agreements. :)

What's your gamertag?

That wasn't convincing on The Brady Bunch coming from Robert Reed and it's even less convincing coming from you. ;)

It does synch. What he's whining about is that turning it on doesn't all of a sudden upload all of your saves to the cloud. You decide on a game-by-game basis when you want it in the cloud, the way it should be. Just like before you decided if you wanted your saves on a USB drive or the HD. Not to mention the fact that some games don't even allow you to copy saves to other devices (Mass Effect, Dark Souls etc) and force you to move them instead. The way it's setup is ideal. So now cloud is just another save location option you get whenever you start a new game (or a new game within an old game) and it when you select Cloud it saves there and also creates a file on your HD in case you cant get online, and then synchs to the newest save when you do get back online.


waitttt. You say it syncs, but then you say it's like any other form of storage that you have to select beforehand. Wasn't TC's complaint that if you have no access to the internet you don't get your saves. If what you say is true then they are correct right?

Wrong wrong wrong. Due to the NDA I won't say anything other than you're dead wrong. Learn how to use it and then whine.


This. I can vouch for Capn. IvAn is doing it wrong.

If I read him correctly, he's saying when you start a game you select cloud, USB, or HD as the location for a save, and if you choose Cloud then it saves to the Cloud *AND* creates a copy to your HD if you have one. He also clearly says if you're offline it uses the HD save and then updates the cloud save with the newer HD save once you're connected to the Internet again. Frankly this sounds like Dropbox, which is a great service.
