Honestly it is a little suspect to me. By games it probably means the digital licences for the games/dlc. But we won't really know until it's in consumer's hands.

That's not being a fanboy at all. Both ps3 and 360 already do this. You can access your entertainment content anywhere. It's just like how sony said games can be played on a friend's console through the cloud. It's pr speak.

The 360 nor the PS 3 offer unlimited cloud space...

That's what im thinking too. It'd be crazy for either company to go from 1gb to no limit whatsoever of cloud saves.

What are you talking about 'Most of the HDD space is tied up by DLC and game installs" it's UNLIMITED SPACE how can most of Unlimited space be tied up? and what does this have to do with terrible marketing?
Don't mind him. He couldn't Google search a correct response so he had to rely solely on his own thoughts. Which leaves us with that nonsense he posted.

Since when did the 360 or the PS3 give you unlimited cloud storage and not require you to be a Gold or PS+ member? It ain't close to the same thing, phaggot.

Well I mean thinking about it, as you said it's covers a quite broad range of things. Does this include gameplay videos you can make with the system? Because unless ms is using a really low quality encoding it's going to eat up space big time. You can speak from some experience with your videos.

I did a straight up 720p capture of the Japanese demo for Catherine which was about 20 minutes and weighed in at about 5 gigs before compression. Hell I did Malicious also and that was a nightmare.

My vies were usually around that range before compression told hut maybe that's why they limited it to the last 5 minutes? And going back to the article, the quote doesn't mention cloud saves. Just entertainment content which is already stored in their servers "the cloud" for you to download at any time

Not really. This was already in place when it was going to be an 'online console.' This isn't something they just came up with in the last week or so, it's just information that hasn't been released before.

Think.

Just think for one moment.

The cloud is only for game saves. Not downloads, or game installs. You still would have to delete files for new downloads or installs.

Unlimited storage is only applicable for saves which hardly take up space to begin with.

Some more positive news has come out of the first ever PAX Australia this past weekend. During it, some key features have been revealed regarding the Xbox One. Aside from the usual "3X's the computing power" offered by the Cloud service speech, the people at Microsoft have now stated that the cloud essentially gives you an "unlimited sized" hard drive, allowing players to save unlimited game data via the service.

Microsoft says the Xbox One offers "Unlimited" hard drive space.

Now, this comes as no surprise, as that feature is already incorporated into the Xbox 360 (limited to 512mb) and was spoken about at E3 as being unlimited for the Xbox One.

There were a few questions, though. Currently, you need to have an Xbox One Gold membership to utilize this service. Although you don't need a Gold account to download saved data onto your Xbox 360, in order to actually save to it you need to pay up.

According to Microsoft's public relation's, the Xbox One will offer this service for all Xbox Live members, negating the necessity of an Xbox Live Gold account to utilize the service as it stands currently.

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.

Not a bad perk to have, as it eliminates some of the limitations of a physical hard drive (but arguably has some issues of its own).
