Re: Online Saves (Cloud saving) confirmed for Plus Members

This would be an awesome feature to have for PS Plus. It's about time we get a new feature, besides the Auto Download.

You do not seem up to speed with what's been going with gamesaves.

But you're right.  They (sony and game devs) could have come up with a better encryption method for the gamesaves.  But with so many gamesaves available, the encryption could be cracked just the same.

That's awesome news, after gettign YLOD last year, this is really good. now all my data can be backed up when they release the update. you said it will be in the upcoming update 3.60 right, any idea when that will be?  also this should get more people to join Plus, since this is a great feature.

Yes, yes it does.  I didn't see any sort of "... look I am trying to be funny ..." emote, so I really hope you are just being a smart-ass, in which case, it is still not funny to me since my original 60GB Fat PS3 broke, not once, but twice, including the dreaded YLoD.

The reason YLoD is so painfully bad is because no other f'ing electronics die this quickly to the point where gamers consider consoles almost expendable.  Think TVs, iPods, DVD (or even other Blu-ray players), radios (do folks still use those), even computers (except for Windows software ... which really does not count), no one expects non-gaming electronic devices to die so quickly.  My NES and Intellivision consoles are still going strong; I know they do not have so many movable parts, but I digress.

So yes, a cloud save service may be nice, if it backs up all your content, but as it stands, it is a damn shame it is needed for anything expect backing up your save files in case you have multiple PS3 systems or you want to upgrade your HDD.

Being a victim of the YLOD too and now with an ugly Slim instead of the nice 60GB, I didn't see this as funny at all. Why would anyone think the YLOD was a good thing? Why anyone would think that YLOD was okay is beyond me, so I really don't understand why you would jump to that conclusion. Maybe you should look up the word "sarcasm."

The whole poing of the comment was to show that when a console dies Sony has made it so that you say "Oh, my console died, guess I better get a new one" instead of "Crap, my console died and now I have to buy a new one so I can play all my old games again so I can do whatever I want in them again." Good business for Sony, but why can't they just make something that lasts more than a few years?

aww the fat ps3's mine had the laser go out at 1 year 2 days - fixed myself - 80 buks off ebay. caught the ylod @ 1 yr 4 months

i agree with the post about how long electronics should last - if my slim dies im done with sony
