Sony Give PSN Plus Gamers Cloud Storage for Saves

By Posted 9 Mar 2011, 21:18

With PS3 firmware v3.60 ready for download tomorrow (March 10), it’s only right if we bring you the news that a new feature is coming to PSN Plus subscribers. In the update, gamers will get the option of saving data ‘on the cloud,’ meaning that you can access saved data wherever you are in the world as long as you have access to a PS3.

Sony say that premium PSN Plus subscribers will get up to 150MB of game-progress data allocated to you on their online cloud service. Obviously 150MB is not a great amount of storage, but it should be enough for a number of game-progress saves to be easily accessed wherever you may be.

Sony has released an official press release to go with the scheduled v3.60 update. In it, they detail certain outlines of using the cloud service. One of which says that you are limited to 1000 data files per account, and previously backed up data can only be restored once per 24-hour period.

You can see the official press release, along with the official word from Engadget about the update in this article.

To access the online-game save service, the user must go to [Game] > [Save Data Utility] and then highlight the data that needs to be backed up. Pressing Triangle will then bring up an option where you can [Copy] the data to [Online Storage].

Are you excited for v3.60 and the ability to save your game progress on the cloud? Will you subscribe to PSN Plus for this service?
