Steam Cloud service puts PC gamers in control
World-class games developer Valve is set to launch a game-friendly feature called Steam Cloud, letting gamers save all their controller settings in one place, meaning you can comfortably pick up the controls on any computer you decide to play on.
It’s great news for configuration-confused gamers needing to shift from computer to computer to play games. Now they’ll have access to all their individual mouse, controller and keyboard settings on any computer.
Just log into the Steam Cloud server and all your settings will be there to tap into, saving you from making excuses when losing yet another skirmish.
Other smart features in the works include plans for data-syncing, grabbing in-game screenshots and gamer footage capture for an enhanced multi-playing experience.
Left4Dead will be the first game to use the service, with more to follow.
With Steam’s ability to download full games online, the iTunes of gaming is going from strength to strength.
