As discovered by a Twitter user, Dizzy_Ziddy, it seems that Sony’s cloud saves for those who have subscribed to PlayStation Plus now has further limits in which you can only store a certain number of game saves.
Gamers who have a lot of game saves or playing a lot of games will have to keep in mind that the maximum number of files allowed to be saved in the cloud is 1,000 files. While the amount may be a lot, please note that there are certain games that create multiple save files per campaign like RPG games, in which players will have to use like more than ten or so. If that is the case, the 1,000 number of file limit may not be enough in the end.
Now be mindful to the save files you will store in the cloud as you don’t want to lose any of your important save files in the cloud.
Compared to other platforms like the Xbox One, the cloud that Microsoft offers doesn’t really have any cap. Hopefully when the PlayStation 5 launches in the very near future, Sony will remove the cap as who knows how many of the save files will gamers able to use. But for some who has a limited budget and only plays a few games, the 1,000 file limit wouldn’t be a big deal.
As someone who is paying at around $60 a year for a service, there file cap should be a little bit more as we really don’t know how many saves we’ll use up in each game that we play. Hence, there are certain games that I have, especially JRPGs, that uses around 15 saves.
No statement from Sony has been released yet. As soon they releases a statement, we’ll definitely post it here.
