Xbox LIVE following the cloud trend

 

It isn’t just IT and business software, like for example the recent "Office 365" suite, that Microsoft is steering towards cloud computing. In fact, the Redmond firm is offering the same services to Xbox 360 users.

Owners of Microsoft’s HD console can from now on save their profiles ("gamertag") to the cloud. For this you need to have an online account with Xbox LIVE already set up. Really useful if you want to retrieve your saved game data from any Xbox 360, however, this functionality is not yet 100 per cent operational. For the moment, it only applies to certain games available on Xbox LIVE.

And yet the PlayStation online service recently experienced a series of attacks from not necessarily well-intentioned hackers; should we really be rejoicing over the popularity of the cloud?
