In a perfect world, the PS3 will allow background download of game updates. However, the real world harbours slow PSN-locked downloads. Let's face it; consoles use the cheapest components of questionable durability. It is therefore criminally stupid to waste the limited lifespan of your PS3 downloading updates and digital purchases running into gigabytes. Wouldn't it be great, if you could use your cheap, energy-efficient download rig to fetch downloadable content instead? Fortunately, there is a way to do that with the PS3.ProxyServer.
