A slightly different proposition, Play Memories is solely for the cloud-based storage of photos and videos, and doesn’t support documents or other file types. However, unlike the other rival services, photos and videos won’t only be accessible through desktop, tablet and smartphone applications, but also via the Sony PlayStation 3 console, whose rich media playback capabilities make it a perfect match for video and photo content.

Sony are also looking to roll the service out to their Bravia TVs and S-Frame digital photo frames, with an aim to have the service hit these other platforms by the summer.

Like Google Drive, Play Memories offers 5GB worth of free storage space; 3GB more than Dropbox, and 2GB less than Microsoft’s SkyDrive.

You can grab the PlayMemories Online app now for free on both Android and iOS devices.
