Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has announced the arrival of Online Storage for game saves on your PlayStation 3 (PS3). Responding to the interest from the PlayStation 3 community, Online Storage will be available via PlayStation Network from 10th March 2011, exclusively to PlayStation Plus members. With 150MB of space available,
Online Storage for games saves allows PlayStation Plus members to store game save backup data (max 1000 game saves) online.
Users can access their Online Storage via XMB (XrossMediaBar), under the Games icon, where they can save game data or download and pick up and play from where they left off.
Games saved in Online Storage can also be accessed by logging into their PlayStation Network account from any PS3. Therefore, it will be possible to download a game save to a friend’s PS3 and continue playing, whilst also benefiting from not running the risk of losing game data if they choose to upgrade their console.
PlayStation Plus members can also save their ‘copy protected’ game data to the Online Storage, however there will be a 24 hour period after saving before they can access the data on a different PS3.
Online Storage is the latest addition to the exclusive features available to PlayStation Plus members.
