Playstation Games to Offer Automatic Save Backups

PSN@Home Writes: "the cloud save back up system recently implemented into the Playstation Network for Playstation Plus subscribers will add a feature so that developers can have their games allow you to automatically back up your saves right from the game. (instead of having to do it manually)." (Dev, PS3, Tag Invalid)

Hard to tell

"so that developers can have their games allow you to automatically back up your saves right from the game."

that scares me seeing only a handful of 3rd party devs will actually support such a great feature but i'm sonys first party is what the real aim would be with the auto save

As I'm not a Plus subscriber, I wish that they would offer this cloud-based storage system separately. I would happily pay $10-15 per year to use this.

Anyone else agree?

that would be awesome

well, the base is already there, i was manually copying my save games there and it took a while. so this helps. pretty happy about this update though, and i hope that in the future they will eventually give us all the other stuff that we gamers want.

it only does everything including UNLIMITED cloud based storage
jwk94  +   1669d ago
150gb isn't unlimited bro.
Lazyeye79  +   1669d ago
150GB would be awesome I would back up my entire PS3 on there, but to bad its only 150MB
jwk94  +   1669d ago
yeah, my bad, meant to put MB
Shazz  +   1669d ago
i just hope they up the limit to at least 300 mb eventually for the cloud .

1geebee ftw XD
a_bro  +   1669d ago
well this is just the beginning, you can bet that at some point in the future, they will increase the cap.

Well that's not exactly front page, it's burried in the comments of a blog that I don't look at because I'm not in EU. Thanks for the link though. So did this guy just read the comment and make a whole article trying to seem like Nostradamus or what?

He states that in the article by stating at as his opinion
The Hunter  +   1669d ago
It will come for sure, they say they will lookin into that..
KwietStorm  +   1669d ago
Just like how they've been continuously looking into cross game chat? This author basically said oh I'm not basing this on anything but I predict it will be here in June. lol
The Hunter  +   1669d ago
As you can see the link in my 'second bubble' they will update Cloud for sure in the future, so they say they will look into that to implent in the next update..

They never said there comes a update for XGC, you know?

In you link, I see that it says it is definitely something they are looking into in the next update of this feature. "Looking into" does not in any way, shape, or form mean that it will happen in reality. That is exactly why I said they have been "looking into" cross game chat for some time now. Is there something else I am specifically supposed to be reading in your link?
The Hunter  +   1669d ago
Yeah I know, but Cloud will be definitely be updated in the future.. He said "it is definitely something we are looking into in THE NEXT UPDATE OF THIS FEATURE".

So, the only thing what can be improved the cloud feature is automatic-save and select (all) copy.. So, in other words it is a confirmation for me..

As I said, they never said there comes a update to implent Cross Game chat.. they only said "we are lookin into that" indeed. Cloud is a different case, they confirmed now there will be a update in the feature. You understand now?

Sure I understand. I understand that you are assuming. Is that what you are trying to get across? Because they did not say auto cloud saving is definitely coming. Is that not correct? You cannot sit here and say that was the statement made. The next feature could also be more storage allowed. "Looking into" auto saving for the next update means just that. They are looking into it. I'm not arguing that it will be updated. I'm saying you don't know that auto cloud syncing is definitely included.
MrBeatdown  +   1669d ago
Sounds like a cool feature, but I would have preferred to see a feature that allows you to just select which files to automatically back-up, then it backs them up when the PS3 is shut down if they were accessed while playing.

I don't see myself backing up my files that often having to do it manually.
swishersweets20031  +   1669d ago
probably will happen eventually
RankFTW  +   1669d ago
totally tubular dude
