Sony's cloud service PlayMemories goes live with Android and iOS apps, throws in 5GB for free

Sony's cloud service PlayMemories goes live with Android and iOS apps, throws in 5GB for free
We just finished our comparison of some cloud storage services with Google Drive, which launched yesterday, and today another one pops up. Sony just introduced its own syncing and storage solution for registered users of the Sony Entertainment Network, called PlayMemories Online.

It offers 5GB for free, and, as you can guess, will be available across the Sony universe of computers, TVs, tablets and smartphones. Hey, it even gets its own Android and iOS apps, as any self-respecting cloud service should do. 

There is also a web-based management center that can be accessed from any browser, and the service will convert the videos you upload so you can stream without a hassle on any other Sony device with a screen afterwards.

Now that Sony got into the cloud game, and HTC has its Dropbox collaboration for the new Sense 4.0, we are only waiting from Samsung to chip in with its rumored S-Cloud, or whatever it gets called, adding to the already dizzying array of choices that ask for our personal files in exchange for convenience.

I see consolidation so where down the line. Just as in the auto ( big three) industry, PC ( Wintel) industry and mobile industry ( Google-Apple) these mulitiple cloud services will eventulaly merge to three or Two distinct offerings.

@CharlieAtInfinity, No, it's for any android and iOS devices by the looks of things, I'm about to check it out on my Tablet S and Xperia S though. @jordanshrugg_22, It appears to only say TV, Laptop, Camera, Phone or Tablet on the website, but i would think it could come to Ps3 with a possible update, more here though:http://playmemoriesonline.com/learnmore?rd=495 I was just deciding which cloud service I was hoping to use, then this comes along! decision made!
