More Storage, More Free

Quick questionnaire:

1. Do you have a PlayStation 3?

2. If you do, are you a PlayStation Plus member?

3. If you are, do you like that it only has 150 MB of online save storage?

If you answered "yes" to the first two questions and "no" to the third, then I have one word for you.....


Ok, that's technically a letter and a bunch of numbers, not a word, but I wasn't sure what else to call it.

Anyway, Sony just announced that they have a new firmware update for the PS3 (V4.25) that "increases PlayStation Plus members' online save storage from 150 MB to 1 GB" (Game Informer).

Here's what the Official PlayStation Blog had to say concerning the specifics of the update:

"After you've intalled the update, simply go to the Saved Data Utility 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 a 1 GB.

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

So if you're a PS Plus member who has been wanting more online save storage, be sure to download firmware update V4.25. A whole gig of memory will give you quite a bit more save space.

And a quick Borderlands 2 update (if you haven't yet, you can read this article I wrote concerning the game).

The Mechromancer class character now has a name - Gaige - and she is free if you pre-order a copy of Borderlands 2. The game comes out next Tuesday, so if you've been seriously considering buying this game you only have a few more days to pre-order to get Gaige free.

And that's been just some of the news in the ever-changing world of video games!
