Making its debut on the 7-years old gaming console, Microsoft today has announced that its SkyDrive cloud-based storage service is now available on Xbox 360 via the new SkyDrive app. The SkyDrive app is part of more than 40 apps that the company are deploying to all Xbox 360s (varied according to specific region) throughout the globe between now and the spring of 2013.
