According to a report over on Eurogamer, Microsoft has opened up its cloud storage service for some Xbox 360 titles.

One of the site’s readers noticed the latest system update now stores profiles, and some game saves across multiple 360 systems with certain Xbox Live Arcade titles in the cloud storage service.

“Cloud storage will allow you to enjoy the same great Xbox Live gaming experience even when you’re not in your own living room by giving you the option to store your ‘game saves’ securely in the Xbox Live cloud, instead of on a portable memory unit or your console’s hard drive,” said Live’s Marc Whitten last month in the press release which detailed the service.

The cloud service also allows folks to save Microsoft Points, Achievements, and their friend’s list.
