Cloud PS3 Game Online Saving Coming in Firmware 3.60 Update

750°
204w 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."

Just under two months since the previous PlayStation 3 system software update has passed, and today Sony has released PS3 Firmware version 3.56.

For those wondering, PS3 JailBreak and Custom Firmware users can still access PSN via the bypass methods but read the IRC log below as a "rootkit" was found in PS3 Firmware 3.56 which reportedly allows Sony to scan for PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware or any unofficial homebrew software.
