Peer-to-Peer downloading on PS3?

Sarcasticgamer.com comments on speculation that the new GT5 Prologue update could open the door to peer-to-peer downloads for the PS3.

From the article: "Essentially, distributing what you already have among other users is faster than a direct HTTP connection to a Sony server because data is not being sourced from one point (in this case the Sony servers) but being distributed equally and freely among potentially thousands of Gran Turismo players. If the numbers well and truly do rack up into the thousands, it can essentially mean you are downloading a program at super-fast speeds from many, many sources at once, rather than waiting hours for a download from a single source to complete."

So. MGO has been using P2P since the beta and they didn't write an article then, stupid sarcasticgamer.

I was gonna post this, but you beat me to it. p2p works great.

has nothing to do with the PS3; it runs off Konami's own servers. Sarcasticgamer was speaking about the firm update which will enable P2P (hypothetically) meaning P2P will be available for all things from the PS3 server

Yeah I know, but they are just speculating. Nothing is confirmed, they just said it could open the door to P2P use in the Sony firmware.

correct...this just show how the "experts", the gaming sites, can't be trusted when it comes to info about a console or games...we, the community are a better source of info.
