Kotaku reports that with official firmware v.3.60, Sony will enable online storage of game saves. (Finally an OFW update that provides a new feature set!) This frees up hard drive space, of course (though not much in principle), but the more exciting ramification of this is that one will be able to download one’s game saves to other consoles or even to the same console in case of hard drive failure.
Two caveats: This service will only be available to PS+ members, and Sony will allow game developers to opt out of the cloud system for their titles. I wonder how this feature will treat games with locked game saves. Will they be grandfathered in to the pool of those who opt out?
