Good to hear, the fact that you had to recover your whole gamertag to sign in on another consle was annoying.

I just keep my Profile and saves on a memory stick and use that on the downstairs and upstairs 360's, or if I go to a mates place for a gaming session.

Just bought a second Xbox so this is great news! Was worried I'd have to mess around with a memory stick everytime I wanted to play the bedroom one.

But then you're buggered if you're USB stick goes to s**t...

Shot in the arse then!

Ok I should stop with the buggery jokes before they get awful. I don't like poking my rod in things...

That beacons system will come in handy. I was getting a bit sick of climbing to the top of the roof and flashing the Xbox Live symbol in the sky to let my mates know i wanted to play.

Too bad that PSN has this for PS+ users only. OK I know they gave us a months free of PS+ but it'd be nice to have cloud storage as standard, as a nice back-up for USB sticks. Nice news for 360 owners.
