Cloud Storage on the PS3 with FW 3.60
By on January 30th, 2011

It seems that the PS3 is in for a major update after quite some time. Remember what they said about Portal 2 for the PS3 also incorporating Steam Cloud? Well Sony is really pleased with this idea and want to generously put up this service for PlayStation Plus subscribers with the newest update.

Calling it the very unimaginative Online Savingprocess, Sony has informed developers about this new axis of storing files and save data with their forthcoming 3.60 firmware update. Cloud storage has the dual advantage of not only making sure the gamer has his/her peace of mind, knowing that their save data is safely backed up on a remote server, it also enables the gamer to play the same game from the same save point on multiple consoles, since the save data is tied to a specific PlayStation Network account.

There is a catch with all this generosity, as mentioned before only PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to utilize this Online Saving process. The general public (also known as Those-Who-Refuse-To-Pay-For-Demos) is largely barred from this process. Also, since the game data is copied beyond the gamer’s console, some game developers might not be happy with the idea and can thus choose to opt out their video game’s data from being saved on the cloud.

Hopefully it will be implemented well by Sony.
