Xbox 360 cloud storage NOT live yet

Your save files here. Sometime in the future.

The story that started floating around the internet about two days which claimed Microsoft had quietly launched cloud storage on the Xbox 360 has now been dismissed by Microsoft.

“Just confirmed that the [cloud storage] service has not gone live yet. We’ll keep you posted on launch details.” — Microsoft representative.  Microsoft officially confirmed to us that the service is not yet live.  [Joystiq]

When it launches, cloud storage on the Xbox 360 will enable users to recover gamertags and access save data, MS Points, friend lists and achievements on different consoles.

I would assume that this will all be preceded by a rather obvious update, but I’m a tech n00b, so I might be wrong.
