The lights are on
On the release of PlayStation 3's version 3.60 update on March 10, cloud save game storage hits a home console for the first time. The catch? You have to be a PlayStation Plus subscriber.If you are, the cloud functionality will be automatically enabled with the update. Valid Plus accounts will be able store up to 150MB of save data and a max of 1,000 files. Sony says copy-prohibited save data will work with the cloud and that players can recover data once every 24-hour period.
Here's how you'll be able to create online saves:
To back-up:1. Select [Game] > [Save Data Utility].2. Focus on the save data you wish to back up.3. Open up the option menu using “triangle” and select [Copy].4. Select [Online Storage] as the destination of back up.
To copy:1. Select [Game] > [Save Data Utility] > [Online Storage].2. Focus on the save data you wish to copy.3. Open up an option menu using “triangle” and select [Copy].

That's pretty darn awesome. I think I am going to have to buy this now so I wont have to change plugs from my brother's PS3 and my own PS3 whenever I want to play PS3. I will be able to actually play a college my PS3, then come home and seamlessly play.
Great, yet another reason why i am a happy plus member.
Even though I have no use for cloud saving, this is a pretty cool idea and is exactly the kind of stuff Sony should be bringing to PS+. All too often PS+ feels more like they are taking away from regular members instead of providing more to Plus users.
Can my psp receive my PS3 save files from this cloud? It would make playing PS1 games on both systems that much easier. I'll give it a try.
this would kind of be nice.. i wouldnt need to worry about corrupt gamesaves anymore...now i might become a playstation plus suscriber.
That sounds great. Good idea Sony.
im thinking i might become a plus member, all this stuff sounds great!
This is great news!!!
