E3: Xbox Live to get cloud storage, 'beacons'


Whoa, take a look at that! Hidden in a letter from corporate VP of Xbox Live Marc Whitten were a couple of surprises that Microsoft didn't cover in its press conference.

"We are making it easier for you to sign into your Xbox Live account from any console at any time to access your game saves and full profile, including items such as Microsoft Points to make purchases, Achievements and friends," writes Whitten. Cloud storage for game saves and Live profiles is coming, guys. No more gamertag recoveries!

Beacons were also announced. "Beacons are a way to tell your Xbox Live and Facebook friends that you want to play a game on Xbox Live. By setting a Beacon, you tell Xbox Live what you want to play. Then, Xbox Live lets you know when friends are playing or want to play the same game."

Best news of the day for Microsoft?
