Sony have released a new update for the PlayStation 3 that you might be wondering what it does, well if you are a subscriber to the PlayStation Plus service and have downloaded the update you will find that it gives you 1GB of free cloud storage, allowing you to save your games remotely for use on consoles other than your own, or even on your own.

On the company’s official blog they have detailed some instructions on how to use the new data, which are:

“After you’ve installed the update, simply go to the Saved DataUtility under the Game column of the XMB. From there you can access the Online Storage folder and find any existing game saves already uploaded, as well as the increase in space to 1GB.”

“So set your automatic download to upload every game save for every game you play, and enjoy the additional breathing room. You can also continue to use this feature to selectively upload game saves you specify.”

Aside from the free storage that’s about it, so if you want some new features you’re gonna have to subscribe to Plus I’m afraid.
