PS3 putting game saves on The Cloud?

Sony Rumours Playstation 3 News

DEATH TO HARD DRIVES!

Hey, do you remember when an update on the Playstation 3 wasn’t security related?  Yea, me neither.  But, those days may be behind us.  Sony might be putting a really sweet tech feature in the 3.60 update on the PS3.  Saving games on “the cloud,” a server based saving system that would allow people to access their game saves wherever they are, could be in the new update.

This rumor  seems very likely.  During the Next Generation Portable (NGP) reveal, Hideo Kojima mentioned that you would be able to save a game on the PS3 and then resume it on your NGP (PSP 2).  It appears that you will have to be a Playstation Plus subscriber to use this feature though.

The Xbox 360 has had one game that implements this feature.  In Magic: The Gathering on the XBLA, your game saves are attached to your Gamertag.  Hopefully, they will put cloud saving into more games too.

    Such a great idea, I hope this becomes the standard real soon. It would be nice to play your unlocks at friends house’s if they are not as far on a game.

    Agree. I do miss being able to go round your mates and take your saved game data with you. Know you need to lug your console around with you where ever you go.

    Great till something happens to their system and they lose your data. I am sure the fine print would state they have no responsibility for loss or damage to files.

    If there is a guarantee offered then this is a great idea.

    Agree with you their JP. I always prefer to buy a game on disc than download it for that reason. More so for the pc cause of regular formating. You know the Ts&Cs will be air tight.
