Earlier this year, Microsoft unveiled a new cloud storage feature for the Xbox 360 that would likely be implemented in this fall’s dashboard update. The cloud based system will allow users to store save files, and other important system data, that can be accessed without a physical storage device.
One important piece of information that has not been revealed about the feature is the storage capacity. Xbox 360 users will get 512 MB of Cloud Storage with the fall dashboard update. This is a good bit of storage when comparing it to the PlayStation 3. Sony’s version of cloud based saving gives PlayStation Plus subscribers 150MB of storage as an added benefit to the subscription.
There’s still no ETA on the release of the fall dashboard, but many believe it will arrive just in time for the rush of sales during Black Friday.
