So you can download while playing games?

Why were there so many reports saying you couldn't do it?

power of Green 4757d ago (Edited 4757d ago )

It's because everybodies ignorant and you're the smart guy that has figured it out when everybody else couldn't. All the PS3 owners will know what you know now, thank for the heads up.

I never really heard MS fans or read any reports saying HA!HA! the PS3 cant Download 6 things in the back ground!.

Lebauski4757d ago

1. tethered didn't say that MS-fans said something like that - he's talking about "reports". I heard it different (that you can't download while playing games), too.
2. He's talking about the background downloading, not how many downloads you can start simutanously.

So, power: What about a nice cup of Shut the F*=?k up? There's enough for everyone!

Reread it again.

I said report too!. Nah i'll pass on that tea you have it. Lebauski what's in that tea you've been drinking?.

tethered4756d ago

That’s exactly what I was talking about.
Thanks for clearing it up.

I never said it was from any MS-fans.
I actually heard it from at least two news reports.
Can't remember where though.

You can't do BD while playing games off the drive, only games off the HDD. - though I only read that from one source- and it isnt in the wording of the official who knows. They said they were working on it and generally they do very quickly

What a weak attempt!

Thugbot1874757d ago

Thought the Cell was suppose to fix all these weak imperfections? One would think you could download while playing a game while the PS3 cooks you lunch……. :(

Boink4757d ago

but to be honest after seeing that it was something MS had to update after launch, you'd think sony would have had the foresight to think that their fans might want it too, and have this implemented before they launched.
