Xbox 360 has a big new update, adds 2GB cloud storage

A new update for the Xbox 360 is now available, adding cloud storage, activity feed and more.

Remember the Xbox 360? We do! It has a brand new system update that brings some handy new features to the ageing console.

The update adds 2GB of cloud storage for both Xbox 360 and Xbox One saves.

You will now be able to transfer old and current 360 saves to your Xbox One thanks to the cloud.

This will allow you to carry on your progress regardless of the platform, so long as the title is supported by the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility feature.
Marketplace codes received via messages can now be redeemed immediately, instead of manually typing them into the store each time.

Other additions in this update include an activity feed, similar to the one currently found on Xbox One.

You can also see what your friends are playing on Xbox One and Windows 10, if you think they’re hiding something from you.

The Xbox 360 first launched in 2005, and went on to sell over 80 million units worldwide.

Microsoft recently made the new Xbox One user interface available through the Dashboard Preview Programme.

Known as the “Xbox One Experience,” the new UI takes inspiration from Windows 10 and plans to fix many of the issues found in the previous interface.

However, many players testing the new interface have reported multiple problems, whether this be applications crashing or simply refusing to launch.

Microsoft are said to be investigating these issues, and wish to have them ironed out before the public launch later this year.
