Valve Unveils Steam Cloud 153

Posted by Soulskill
from the steam-cloud-haha-get-it? dept.
Erik J tips us to news of Valve's announcement that their content distribution system, Steam, will receive an update "in the near future" called Steam Cloud. The new service will allow users to save games and configuration settings online. According to MaximumPC: "This system will be completely transparent to the user. The files cache locally, and will upload when Steam detects an internet connection. There will be no restrictions on users - no save quotas or file management - the system will 'just work.' Any Steamwork game will be able to support these features, and it'll be free for customers and developers."

"Life sucks, but it's better than the alternative." -- Peter da Silva
