At the Game Developer’s Conference in San Francisco today, Microsoft announced a couple of important steps in its push toward mixing the real world with the virtual. First off, the company confirmed mixed reality experiences are coming to the Xbox family in 2018, including the next-gen Project Scorpio.

Does anyone know if cloud storage is safe? I mean, do they put the saved files on a server nobody knows about or is it the same one that xbox live is on?
Yes there was recent hacking on xbox live as well, there was a hacker who got into peoples’ accounts, stole their points, and left sort of a calling card by earning 3 achievements on FIFA 12 (I don’t play soccer games and never will.). So I know what I’m talking about.

Or maybe you are referring to hacking on games such as Modern Warfare 2 and such… if you are that is a game issue, not an XBox Live issue…
Anyways, as far as I have been able to determine, the Cloud Storage is perfectly secure. It is on a separate server from the XBox Live server itself (in the same building though) and I am yet to have any problems with it.
