PS3 Firmware Update 3.60: Download Live – Problems with PS Plus Only Features?

As we informed you yesterday, Sony were planning to drop PS3 firmware 3.60 onto systems, and now we can confirm that the update is now indeed live. However, we want to know what those of you without PlayStation Plus subscriptions think about the exclusive new features that subscribers are getting.

You’ll be able to download v3.60 the next time you boot up your PS3, and the biggest feature of the software is the ability to store game saves on Sony’s new cloud system, up to 150MB – but only if you’re a premium subscriber.

Of course it’s a neat feature, but are you a little frustrated that you have to pay $50 a year to get it? You could argue that such a big feature should be on the core list of features for the PS3 anyway. We hate to think that in-game cross voice chat, the one feature that all PS3 owners are dying to see, will end up being a PSN+ feature only as well.

What are your thoughts on this? PSN+ users will argue that Sony should make this a premium feature, but then those without may be annoyed that they can’t make use it without paying more money. This is the first big feature that Sony has given their premium members, what is going to be the next?
