PSN Cloud storage allows only 1.000 save files

81 posts in this topic

I've recently started going through and deleting some of my cloud saves. The one thing I kinda realized recently with them it's a bit stupid to get upset with the lack of  them. If anything the store shutdown that got cancelled reminded me again, digital isn't forever. Sure there's so much space left over but on the flip side will we really need this saves or even gave access to those saves forever? It would be much simpler for me to buy a $5 usb drive and just out the important ones on there to hold.

 

Even then the chances are I ever go back to these saves are slim to none. Take Mad Max for exmaple I kept the saves on there but why? I already completed the whole game, I did every mission, looted every location and captured all the bases. If I load up the save all I will be able to do is drive around a literal empty wasteland.

 

A game like Skyrim (which I've owned on every system except for Switch and logged thousands of hours into it). I don't feel attachment to dig up my old save as I would sooner rather start another new character to roleplay as in it. Or just go on PC and see what new mods there is for it to change up the game and make it feel fresh again.

 

Basically as long as I can still play these games twenty years from now. That's all that matters to me, I don't get any feeling of Nostalgia the same way I would loading up a save of a game from my childhood on the PS1.

To you, this might seem arbitrary, but if you step out of your shoes, you might think that the limit is there for a reason. Imagine what would happen with PS Cloud servers, if everyone was allowed to have 100 GB's worth of save files. This isn't Google, they wouldn't handle that shit. Just look at what has happened with LittleBigPlanet servers, just because a dickhead wanted to spam with new creations so much the servers crashed and had to be disabled. Don't you think there would be plenty of trolls who would happily write scripts for making thousands of small-sized save files, just to fuck with everyone who uses PS Cloud?

 

I also reached the limit and my current games I can´t upload anything more to the cloud. that sucks. this is for the players.

I haven't cleaned out my cloud storage in several years, since it first notified me that it was full. And when I say full, I mean Skyrim made a different file each save and PSN+ was backing up every one of them. We're talking 50 some-odd stupidly big saves.

You likely have saves for games you will never touch again, don't even remember anything about, or the save itself is nothing impressive like a 100% completion file or whatever. Your trophies already show off what you've accomplished in said game so why does it matter if you retain each and every save?

you never know which games will get a PS5 stack with save transfer
