Xbox Live Cloud Implementation Begins

Don’t Let the Update Get You Down

There have been difficulties for the Xbox Live community today, as Microsoft tried to sneak right under its nose and begin the system update first outlined at their E3 conference last month. Since then, VG247 have elaborated on the specifics of the new Xbox Live “Cloud” service, explaining exactly what was involved.

The Cloud will replace and improve upon the Recover Gamertag feature that Live users are familiar with, and as the update rolls out in a painfully slow fashion, Xbox gamers will find their gaming profiles, including achievements, Microsoft Points, and even saved games, all uploaded to the online XBL Cloud – perhaps even making hard drives obsolete.

There is no doubt that as the update continues to be slowly implemented, Xbox users will have some trouble logging into their Xbox Live accounts. The only question is how long the whole process will take. The exact waiting period for the reconstruction to be completed? Well, Digital Trends suggest it could be as far away as the autumn before all Xbox Live titles are fully integrated, but are also claiming that XBL Arcade games will be set up for Cloud gaming by the end of the week.

No matter the timing, it seems that Microsoft have set their fans up for a long wait, with repeat performances of this morning’s brief downtime incredibly likely as the service is updated.
