StarCraft II to utilize a save game Cloud

Saturday, 22nd August 2009 00:03 GMT By Nathan Grayson


Your StarCraft II save games will always be with you, Blizzard’s just announced, so long as you have a reliable Internet connection.

As part of its panel at BlizzCon, the developer noted that StarCraft II will take advantage of cloud computing for game saves. At work, at home, on a train, on a plane, in a box, with a fox — it doesn’t matter where you are; you can access your campaign saves.

Sounds pretty neat to us.

We’ll keep you updated as the panel continues.

    Why is anything that uses an external server to store date considered “cloud” computing nowadays?

    I thought the whole process of cloud computer was literally controlling one computer (or at least aspects of it, like a game) from another computer.

    This is just storing a save file on their own servers. That kinda thing has been around for over a decade.

    Saying Cloud is more hip, even if its not actually Cloud at all.

    ‘Cloud’ is the new ‘net 2.0′
