Playstation Plus Users Move “To the Cloud”

Playstation Plus Users Move “To the Cloud”

In today’s firmware update (v3.60) for the Playstation 3, Playstation Plus members will gain the ability to backup their game saves onto a cloud network.  In addition to allowing members to backup their data to the cloud, today’s update also gives members the ability to access their content from any Playstation 3 connected to the PSN through a Plus account.

Plus users can save up to 150MB of data and have 1,000 files per account.  Game saves with “copy-prohibited data” can also be backed-up and accessed from the network once within a 24 hour period.  The feature will be available for recent Playstation 3 titles and all new releases.  The save data will be available from the Playstation’s XMB at any time.

A few other minor features will also be added during the 3.60 update.
