The future is wide open for Sony. They are definitely getting on a roll!

I think they've been on a roll for almost a year now! :P

I don't even know what you linked, seeing as how the image doesn't load. However, based off your name alone I'm guessing it's some sort of failed trolling attempt.

Maybe this in not PlayStation Cloud but that expansion he was talking about. Especially since we know about the new Sony phone that is going to be able to play PlayStation games and their intention for the upgraded network to be able to stand up against itunes.

I would love to be able to store my save files on a server. My system freezes every once in a while and they told me that I had to reformat my hard drive, but I can't stand to loss all my save files. Now I'm stuck...

Can't you just backup your PS3 to external drive -> reformat -> restore from backup?
Haven't had to do it, but that's my scenario for recovering game saves if my drive goes bad. I think that should take care of both PS3 and PS2 saves.

I think this would be a great step for Sony, It would push them ahead in the digital space which has been seen as MS's next big venture.

Very cool stuff right there.

One of the biggest reasons I bought the PS3 so early on and with so few games is I knew that Sony is a forward thinking company and loves to push the envelope forward....That and the sheer number of developers they have in their pocket. (I like games)

This explains why i cant find a single PS3 Slim anywhere!

RememberThe3573174d ago

Yeah, it's my understanding that the save files would not be backed up. I hope I'm wrong, but that's what I've been told.

too many new models, so little time.

I know and it doesn't show any signs of slowing up.

JoelT3174d ago

What I will say is that if these are Sony's intentions, then all the pieces are now in place.

Hitman07693174d ago

PS Cloud is not some dude with puffy yellow spiked hair anymore!

JoelT3174d ago

Just may be on to something here.
