Cloud PS3 Game Online Saving Coming in Firmware 3.60 Update

199w 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."

What is Sony playing at now, it looks like their doing what, they have been saying we can not do, in a way, now we can backup games and game saves to their servers, how funny is that?

and with this statment "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" WTF, thats what many of us have been doing all along is backing up to our own servers, in a fashion. So because it's Sony they can, copy, Copy prohibited games to their servers.

I know my post is a bit silly, but it is a bit ironic, saying there's a chance you could get banned from some online games using this new wonderfull service.
