Downloading games via PSN question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i have got my friend's ps3. Well he's got 5000 rupees worth coupons which he hasnt used yet.

He needs to use these coupons and wants me to dl the games via internet. Now my questions are :-

1. Is there pause/ resume function on ps3. My dl speed is ridiculous. Just 512kbps! frown.gif So it would take a hell lot of time to dl those big files.

2. Since it will take days to dl such games, is it safe to keep ps3 for that long? I wish to play games on ps3 sometimes so was thinking if it make ps3 go bad.

3. Can games be downloaded on PC first and then transferred on ps3. (Will be buying games, not asking for pirated version)

4. What is the maximum time a ps3 should be used for gaming?

5. Anything else I should be careful of?

You can leave the ps3 running as long as needed, just make sure its in a well ventilated spot. I used to leave mine on for weeks at a time, and it is still running like a champ.

You can pause downloads, but you wont have to. You can download games in the background no problem, but as soon as you open up a game, the download will be paused.

You have to download the games on ps3, but you can shut it off anytime and it should continue the downloads where they were left off. Just keep it on, no issues should occur unless you dont give it enough air.
