Firmware 4.25 lands on PS3 tomorrow
Sony has announced that PS3 firmware 4.25 will be launching tomorrow, which increases the cloud save storage for PS+ subscribers to one whole gigabyte; more than enough for even the most avid of gamers.
Considering that the PS3 has been out for nearly six years, 150MB was surely only enough for a fraction of the average gamer’s saves, so the increase to 1GB is extremely welcome news.
Specific save files can even be synced automatically whenever they are updated, so there’s no need to do so manually. Cloud storage is also the only way to backup protected save files, which cannot be copied to external hard drives or USB memory sticks.
This cloud storage increase was originally revealed at Gamescom last month, and is all part of Sony’s strategy to make PlayStation Plus even better value for money. It feels like we say this all the time, but there really has never been a better time to join PS+.
Until 19th September, a year’s subscription is available at a 25% discount in Europe; that means you can get access to dozens of games (which, this month, include Red Dead Redemption, Machinarium, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Double Dragon Neon) plus exclusive features like cloud storage and automatic updates, for only £29.99/€37.49.
