A couple of huge announcements have been released in the gaming world today as Sony broadens its features for the PlayStation Plus and Microsoft's Kinect for Xbox 360 receives the Guinness World Record for Fastest Selling Consumer Electronics Device.
launch online storage
for PS3 game saves tomorrow, which will be part of the annual $50 subscription. This new feature provides users with 150MB of space in the cloud available for 1,000 save files, and copy-prohibited files can be backed up as long as users only restore deleted files from their system once a day.
In addition, games to be released in the future will be able to save directly to the PlayStation Network. This will be released tomorrow in

...I am honestly surprised that I got down-rated...although apparently there's a bit of a fight, since my OP was at 0 and is back up to 1...
I'm being completely serious - I read several reviews of the device when it was coming out and none of them seemed overly impressed...and many, if not most, seemed to think it was fairly clumsy to use.
I'm sure there's people who enjoy using it...but if there were positive reviews of it at launch, I missed them.

You got downrated because there are indeed positive reviews of it. There are also many on this forum who have actually used it.
I played with one since the beta and there is a reason it sold 8million units.
Most of the negative reviews I saw of it seemed to be folks that just didn't get it. "why aren't there 3d shooters for it??" ... same reason there aren't 3d shooters made to work with a steering wheel - it's not the right tool for the job. Just because a screwdriver doesn't work with a nail doesn't mean there is something wrong with either of them.
Personally I would rather people reply when they disagree. I don't use my downvotes for people I disagree with, I use them for people who are not contributing to the conversation.
meh. Either way I'm glad I own one!
