They need to get rid of locked saves, it annoys me that they're basically forcing me to purchase PS+ just so I can keep a back up of them.

And yes I know I can do a full system backup, but spending multiple hours to back up one save is a joke.

Sure... you can go and not pay.

Having the piece of mind of knowing that "All" game saves are backed up if my system happens to croak... priceless.
