In a press release, Envisions Corp has unveiled its new Gamebox service which is targeted at gamers looking for a better way to store their game data in the cloud. When the service goes live, the service is looking to take more than just your saves to the cloud. The service will apparently offer backup for:
- Saved game progress
- DRM free PC games
- Flash games
- Open source games
- Game profile data
The service will come to use in the form of a client which will automatically backup all of your games and organize them for you all on their own servers.
The GameBox system is so detailed it will provide users with release dates of a particular game. GameBox will allow gamers to off-load several gigabytes of data from their local PC to the Envizions’ servers.
Sounds pretty neat if you keep losing save data or free games by switching computers frequently. I know it’s happened to me one too many times.
It is unknown when the service will launch but they are hoping to go into beta soon as well as support all major consoles. You can request a beta invite on their official site.
