Valve Lets Off Steam Cloud

Today, Valve announced the release of Steam Cloud. This new set of services for Steam stores application data online, allowing users to quickly access their settings, such as controller configurations and spraypaint images, from any PC.

"For some time now, Steam has allowed gamers to log on from any computer in the world and access their applications. This also makes it easy to upgrade a PC without worrying about losing your games," said Gabe Newell, president and co-founder of Valve. "Steam Cloud is a natural extension of the portability Steam affords gamers and developers, and we intend to expand its feature set as it is used in Left 4 Dead and other games coming to Steam."

As Newell alludes to above, Steam Cloud will ship with the Left 4 Dead demo later this week and the full game on November 18.\
