Sony Confirms Cloud Saving for Playstation Plus

Sony confirmed last week’s Kotaku report that the next PS3 firmware update will allow Playstation Plus subscribers to save their games online, making them accessible via their PSN profile.  The new service, called “Online Saving”, comes in extra handy for players  who regularly use more than one console, allowing them access to their saves without a flash drive or memory card.  It also makes switching consoles (or more likely replacing broken ones) much less of a hassle.

Until now, Playstation Plus  offered access to exclusive demos and DLC.  While those features are nice, they haven’t been enough to make Playstation Plus as successful as Xbox Live Gold:  Online saving might not be enough to make the service a success overnight, but it is definitely a step in the right direction.
