New Automatic Online Features Coming to PlayStation Plus

With the next system software update for the PlayStation 3 (3.70), Plus members will be receiving two new features.

First, users will have the ability to set their console up to automatically upload their game saves online. You can opt in for this by selecting a game on the XMB, hitting the triangle button and hitting “Saved Data Auto-Upload”. A nice addition that will make the task of individually uploading game saves a thing of the past!

Secondly is the addition of auto trophy sync. Maybe not the most groundbreaking thing, but it certainly won’t hurt anything by including it.

In addition to the above features coming for PlayStation Plus members, a “recommend” button will be added to the PlayStation Store that will allow you to recommend items to anyone on your friend list. There will also be a brand new category added to the XMB that will include all video services such as Netflix and Hulu PLUS.

For all the details head over to the PlayStation Blog.
