Cloud PS3 Game Online Saving Coming in Firmware 3.60 Update


168w ago - Today Kotaku (linked above) reports that Sony PlayStation 3 developers have revealed Cloud PS3 Game Online Saving is coming in the Firmware 3.60 update.

To quote: "Cloud storage means that, rather than just keeping your save game data on your PlayStation 3's hard drive, users will be given the option to upload their saves remotely to a server.

The advantage of this is that not only does it save the user space on their hard drive, but since it's tied to a PlayStation Network account, it can be pulled down to different consoles whenever and wherever the user desires.

First rumored all the way back in 2009, there is of course a catch: it'll only be made available to PlayStation Plus subscribers, not the great unwashed. Actually, there are two catches: Sony bundled the announcement with the clause that, because saving games to the cloud "will allow save data with the copy prohibited attribute to be copied into the online storage", developers are able to opt out and bar their games from using it should there be a concern.

Sony will call the process "Online Saving", and it'll be made available as part of the PS3's upcoming 3.60 firmware update."

I prefer to FTP and copy ALL savegames to my PC then I have a backup of all my saves NOT $ony.

It's MY console $ony, stop trying to steal every little bit of it.

It's working for sure I did it many times... copy folder "savedata" in 00000001 and restore it when you need it ...

I had to put a 500G hybrid SSD in my ps3, made a back up of "savedata" and "GAMES"

Restored those folder and my ps3 was like before. Now I'm looking for whih folder in the ps3 contain the settings like video settings and audio settings , etc...

my idea of this isn't too good, it's more like a trap on ya and you give them access to your ps3 completly and would catch you doing anything using a jb ps3 to backups and hacks.
