It took me abot 10 seconds to down load and about 20 seconds to update.

That is good, Sony should add more features in there updates too , and also improve the update system. Updates are pretty long on PS3.. don't know why Xbox 360 does it so fast....and for the game updates as well.

IDK if you have noticed but a MW2 update for PS3 was 100+mb while on the 360 it was about 20mb.

Doesn't the 360 use a different type of compression for its updates/game updates?

It's most likely because MS is a software company. Their SDK is top notch. Just take a quick look at XNA and you will know.

Ironically, the Windows Update needs some serious help....

I've always noticed that 360 updates were pretty quick.

This is why you get an Xbox 360. You can use Paypal now. Sony's pretty much done after this update! w00t.

What if someone ends up hacking Paypal?

SixShotCop2488d ago

I don't know. Downtime for 3+ weeks?

LocO_o2488d ago

If some one hacks paypal then MS is going to be wealthy rich.

gamingdroid2488d ago (Edited 2488d ago )

Not MS problem and Xbox Live is still functioning and willing to accept your credit card!

Either way, I use point cards because I almost always find them considerably cheaper online, about 25% discount.

dazzalfc2488d ago

I've already had about 10+weeks of 'downtime' due to RRoD issues, so hopefully Paypal will stay secure :)

SlyFoxC2488d ago

How if you dont mind me asking?

The update was done in under a minute. Besides the addition of Paypal, there's not much new going on.

spring update isn't really a feature update ever, it is usually just general housekeeping

this year it was paypal and the new disc format, the fall updates are the feature rich updates which will surely be announced at e3 as usual
