So we have “Gaming via the Cloud”?
It just saves all gaming data so you won’t have to re-buy what you lost.
I have so many Steam games that after I built this massive gaming PC, it took about three days to re-acquire all of my games back from Steam. But I did get them all back for free.
Also, no CDs to get all scratched up.
You also are limited to (I think -unless they’ve changed it) using two PCs for the same account. Security reasons.
Depends on the specific game. Skyrim and Farcry 3 have cloud saves which come in handy when switching between desktop and laptop coupled with Steam of course.
