automatic game updates should be free...

i understand like cloud back-up, discounts, and free content. but when your updates are 500+ mb you should probably let people update in the middle of the night... or maybe just the ability to say "power off after update" or "download in background" at least.

I thought that even PS+ users need to start their games and download patches semi-manually like everyone else. Isn't it only PS Firmware that auto-updates?

No, cloud back-ups are what should be free. It's ridiculous for devs to lock your save file and then not take any responsibility. It's like creating a document on Microsoft Word and then not being able to put it on your USB and bring it to school/work, unless you pay Microsoft extra money for it.

Every dev should be what Bandai-Namco did for their free-2-play Gundam game: Implement an in-game back-up feature you can use to back up your copy-protected save to their servers.

Cloud should be something you can buy, but saying it should be free doesn't make any financial sense.

Copy-prohibited / locked game saves should be banned all-together. There is no argument that proves the merit of such silliness. Cloud storage that accepts backing up copy-prohibited game saves just proves how useless they are and how they're being used as an incentive to leech more money from the consumer.

They'd never get away with doing it. PC Customers would never take it up the ass like video game customers do.

Hell, if they tried, they'd be hacked within a day, and whatever copy protection they put on the program would be gone.

It makes no financial sense for a customer to pay money just to back up files. They should have the right to back up the file they're created for themselves. I understand that we don't actually own the software we buy. But we do own whatever we've created with the software, do we not? Taking away the right to copy our own files sounds like the a violation of ownership rights to me.

Unfortunately you are right.

I'll still disagree and am wondering what entitlement you think makes you think your right as an owner is at risk?? Like other poster said protected saves are the problem, but Sony isn't gonna think for a second about giving up free cloud space. Best you can do is use your USB or pay them the extra, though i hope everyone can buy it separate from plus one day.
