144w ago - Sony's Senior Director Susan Panico at PlayStation Network has announced today that Online Storage for PS3 Game Saves is coming to PlayStation Plus alongside PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.60 update.
To quote: We've got an exciting new feature coming exclusively to PlayStation Plus subscribers. Included in the system software update (v3.60) coming tomorrow to PS3, PlayStation Network's new online storage for game saves feature gives PlayStation Plus subscribers the capability to back up game save data to the cloud. Online storage for game saves is a great way for PlayStation Plus subscribers to ensure that their data files are secure and also for users who wish to access their files from other PS3 systems.
The new online storage feature allows gamers to store up to 150MB of game save data and a maximum of 1000 data files per PSN account. Users also have the ability to back-up "copy-prohibited save data," and all previously saved data may be restored once per 24 hour period. When the new feature launches, most PS3 titles will be compatible with online storage for game saves, and moving forward, all new titles will have the capability to offer the storage option.
As I mentioned before, online storage for game saves functionality is included automatically for PlayStation Plus subscribers...

Well, Back to the Future is finally here... sorry about the wait but it took us this long to generate the necessary 1.21 gigawatts of electricity to publish the game.
You can download the trial right now and enjoy a snack sized section of the first episode and unlocking will provide the whole first episode of the 5-part series, with access to each new episode as it's released.
Explodemon gets the trial and unlock treatment for anyone who was still undecided, and Bionic Commando 2 gets a demo too.
DLC - there's loads for Def Jam, plenty for Rock Band and the Dragon Age 2 pre-order add-ons launch (for real this time). Even More Animals for LittleBigPlanet 2 drops this week as well, marking the first of the commercially available LBP2 DLC - and certainly not the last. There are free costumes for Yakuza 4, a pack for Porsche lovers hits NFS: Hot Pursuit and the first piece of premium DLC for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood drops today as well - the Da Vinci Disappearance. No prizes for guessing the plot synopsis but it has single and multiplayer content for Ezio's last outing.
Williams Pinball Classics finally hits PSP, a must have for all...
