More positive PR for the Xbox One
Microsoft kind of stumbled out of the gate when it announced its upcoming Xbox One console. Early excitement over a next generation console was marred by a higher price tag (compared to the PlayStation 4, though the Xbox One ships with a second generation Kinect motion control sensor), uncertainty over its used games policy, and the need to dial home every 24 hours. It took a few policy changes to get its console back on track with John Q. Public, and the latest announcement that it will come with unlimited cloud storage is sure to be a boon, as well.
It gets even better. Not only is Microsoft offering an infinity-capacity hard drive in the sky (compared to the 512MB cap for Xbox 360 users), but you don't need an Xbox Live Gold account to use it.
"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," a Microsoft rep said , according to the Examiner .
