PS3 Firmware Update Increases Online Save Storage

Sony announced the firmware update for PlayStation 3, v4.25, increases PlayStation Plus members' online save storage from 150 MB to 1 GB. The update is available soon, Sony says. The news was first announced at Gamescom last month.

After you’ve installed the update, simply go to the Saved Data Utility under the Game column of the XMB. From there you can access the Online Storage folder and find any existing game saves already uploaded, as well as the increase in space to 1GB.

So set your automatic download to upload every game save for every compatible game you play and enjoy the additional breathing room. You can also continue to use this feature to selectively upload game saves you specify.
