Microsoft today announced the free one-month extension to the Xbox LIVE Gold memberships of everyone who was impacted by Cloud Saved games outage for the past two days. Xbox LIVE Cloud Saved Games feature is now back online.
We want to thank all of our Xbox LIVE members impacted by the Cloud Saved Games service issue for your patience and understanding. It took longer than we expected to get back to full performance as we needed to ensure the integrity of everyone’s game saves. Whether you couldn’t access your game saves for a couple of hours or a couple of days, we sincerely apologize for the delay and inconvenience. We will be automatically applying a one-month extension to the Xbox LIVE Gold memberships of everyone who was impacted. We can assure you we’ll also be doing a thorough post mortem to help prevent this from happening again.
If you were affected by the outage, your membership will be automatically extended.
