PS3 Update 3.60
Firmware update 3.60 for the Playstation 3 has officially hit consoles around the globe. Check out the features below. The process takes roughly half an hour to download and install the update, so try find something to keep you occupied - I don’t know, take the dog out? Clean up the house? Pretend you’re getting work done while aimlessly surfing the web? (we both know you do that anyway) - while waiting.
Main features in system software update version 3.60
- Online Storage
[Online Storage] has been added as a feature under Game > [Saved Data Utility (PS3™)] . You can store PlayStation 3 format software saved data on a PlayStation Network server and download it to another PlayStation 3 system to continue playing your game. To use this feature you must have a PlayStation Network account and be a PlayStation Plus member. Check out our post on the Cloud Storage feature to find out more! Other new or revised features in version 3.60
Under [Power Save Settings] > [Controller Auto-Off], you can now set the PS3 system so that the connected or paired controllers will turn off after 10, 20 or 30 minutes of idle time. Note:
- Depending on the software title, you may not be able to play without first updating the PS3 system software.
- Do not perform updates using any data other than the official update data provided by Sony Computer Entertainment over a network or on disc media, and do not perform updates by methods other than those described in the product documentation or in this site. If an update is performed using data from another source, by another method, or with a PS3 system that has been altered or modified in any way, the PS3 system may not operate properly and may not be able to install the official update data. Any of these actions may void the PS3 system warranty and affect your ability to obtain warranty services and repair services from Sony Computer Entertainment.
Bottom Line: PSN+ members will be chuffed to know they can finally keep their save data in technically speaking one of the safest and most reliable storage system around. Don’t count on hearing that in literal terms any time soon though.
