15 years after launch, Microsoft simply added a brand new characteristic to the Xbox 360. The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are lower than a month away, however that does not imply Microsoft is completed with the Xbox One, Xbox One X, and Xbox One S, and apparently it does not imply it is accomplished with the Xbox 360 both. This week Microsoft made Xbox 360 cloud saves free for all gamers. Previously, this characteristic was locked behind having an Xbox Live Gold account.
What makes this help extra spectacular is the truth that PlayStation and Nintendo nonetheless have this characteristic locked behind a paywall. If you need cloud saves on PS4, you want PlayStation Plus. If you are on Nintendo Switch, you want Nintendo Switch Online. On Xbox One, you want nothing. On Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, you will want nothing. And now on Xbox 360, you want nothing.
Of course, not many individuals are nonetheless gaming on the Xbox 360, not to mention using cloud saves, however it’s good for Microsoft to take away this paywall.
As for why Microsoft has knocked down the paywall, it does not say, however it got here alongside a backward compatibility announcement for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, so it could have one thing to do with this.
