Sony has confirmed via its official blog that the company will launch cloud-based storage services for Playstation 3 users. The feature will be rolled out with the new v3.60 firmware update today.

According to the blog, gamers will be able to store up to 150MB of game save data and will have a maximum of 1000 data files per PSN account. Storage  of ‘copy-prohibited save data” will also be supported, which can be used to restore onto other PS3 consoles once every 24 hours.

Sony says that most PS3 titles should be compatible with the cloud, however, all new releases will have built-in ability to do online saving.

Presently, the cloud-service will only be available for Playstation Plus subscribers for free. The Playstation Plus subscription cost $18 for three-months or $50 for a yearly subscription.

The v3.60 firmware update should be rolled out sometime today, following a down time for PS Network.
