[PS3™ system] Updated 05/06/2013

Online Storage (may be referred to saving to the cloud) is a feature that allows the saved data for PlayStation®3 games to be stored on the PlayStation®Network server and then download it to another PlayStation 3 system so you can continue playing your game. This feature will only be available if you have a Sony Entertainment Network account and a subscription to PlayStation®Plus. [Online Storage] can be found under Game icon (Game) > Saved Data Utility - PS3 icon (Saved Data Utility - PS3™).

  • The maximum available storage capacity for one Sony Entertainment Network account is 1GB (previously 150MB of storage, 1GB active after updating to firmware update V4.25) .
  • The maximum number of saved data items that can be stored with one Sony Entertainment Network account is 1000.
  • Saved data that is not for PlayStation 3 format software cannot be stored.
  • You can upload copy-protected saved data at any time.
  • Once copy-protected saved data is uploaded to or downloaded from online storage, you must wait at least 24 hours before downloading the same data again.
  • You cannot use online storage for some games. Currently the only game that does not support this is Afrika.
