Why cant they just bring a update out every 2 or 3 months not once every 2 weeks.

The days of 'having a quick game' once in a while are well over. BRING BACK CARTRIDGES

so piracy is having an effect then

You can have a quick game on the 360
Always takes less than a minute to update.
banned#3
its been a month not 2 weeks and the update before that there was a 4 month gap basically
and only takes 20 mins max usually quicker btw the majority on the time is on downloading the update from internet but installing takes hardly anything
and get xbox if you don't like it
#4
30-40 mins? mine takes a few minutes.
if you disconnect from the internet,it wont ask you to update.

thats the point...... thats why 360 has a massive piracy problem....which eventually will lead to lack of funds for the people who make the games

which in turn will lead to less games develpoed etc etc

save the update onto a usb stick then update the ps3 from the usb

The 360 is so much better than the PS3.

LoL i dont want this to turn into xbox and ps3 fan boys debating which is best or not. How many times has that happened?

Bottom line is paying £90 more for a ps3 with a bluray player saved me alot if i were to buy a standalone blu ray player

Just stating the facts bro.

The PS3 just.ain't.that.great.

Sure, I can understand the fanboys crying into their sony hankies, but the truth is the PS3 is overpriced with a poor games library, crap pads and the only redeeming feature is the bluray player....

Sorry guys, the 360 wins this gen.

I have both and thats just a matter of opinnion.

Pads are fine.

Wouldn't say its overpriced as if you wanted the full spec 360 with the hd drive and wireless you would be looking at over £350 new. So PS3 is actually cheaper in theory.

Xbox has a bigger library full of trash tbh. Though there are cracking games on both sides, which is why I still have them both as a gaming console. I play some on the xbox and some on the ps3.

I go to the reviews before getting on one or the other console. :p

Thats my opinnion tho.

agreed...ive always loved the xbox from the original one over the ps2, and then 360 over ps3. mainly due to price to begin with. However ive recently got a ps3 and havent turned on my 360 since, ive got two new games on the 360 unplayed still! The ps3 is amazing, and although i prefer heavier pads like the 360 the DS3 is fine, i cant use the sixaxis however.
But both systems have their advantages and their disadvantages...just alike comparing any two products...but of course those comparasions come down to personal opinion.

I however must admit i have already got majorly annoyed at every game i put in the ps3 it needs to update! that is a bit annoying, as it really does stop you from having a quick game!

son's ps3 takes forever so i update it via a usb stick usb update via pc

Op is talking about system update which take 20mins every 3 or so months
your mentioning game update which take 1min max when you first buy the game how does that stop you having a quick game?

Nothings stopping them, just basically no-one actually has a blu-ray burner so it's pointless atm.

lol this is quite amusung to read this late at night :w00t: Bottom line is that the Wireless in the PS3 is bad when downloading Updates. Whenever a new System Update is a available just stick in a USB Stick on your computer download it to it and Install, So much quicker. But honesty arguing over which consoles better and hardware comparisons are stupid. I play what ever console has the game I want to play on it, Piracy issues are becoming such a problem these days for handhelds especially in terms of UMD and DS Cards, Sony Nintendo and Xbox have to work out sollutions to fix the problems for the future to carry the gaming genre on. Everythings turning digital weither we like it or not. Stick to retro for fast frequent gaming if thats what you want. :)

YEP....wont be long before all games will be downloaded to your console of choice and be logged to your persoonal account....to stop all piracy

stroll on the new psp.....

then the nex gen consoles

sony have got it sussed
#33
Microsoft simply don't put Sony's level of encryption on 360 titles because there wouldn't be any room left for the game itself.

You have problems with the wireless connection, i'm sure thats more of a hardware conflict with your router, my belkin routers been spot on with several wii's and ps3's.:thumbsup:

I love my ps3 (more than my xbox 360) and even I admit that downloading the update through wifi can take a while (I just leave it for 5 minutes and come back) but my xbox 360 isn't exactly pick-up and play yet (away for it's forth repairs) which takes much longer. I may also be biased because I love my ps2 games (love bc on my ps3) and am now just waiting for the following things to be implemented and the ps3 will be much better:
Cross-game chat
Custom music for all games
Supporting more media file types and hard drive formats

For you I recommend a usb because 30-50 mins seems incredible for an update.
#36
i went on the ps3 a few days ago to have a `quick game` too for 30 mins i said to myself. i put my little big planet game in, then i needed to update that which wasnt working, so then i see i need to update the ps3, that took about 20 minutes, then the update for my game, it all took about 45 minutes :w00t:

nothing can be worser then the spectrum, and the casette tapes, watching the picture load in, and just as it was nearly finished, the game crashed :-D

Right get something straight!

Theres 2 types of update
system update - take 20 or so mins released every couple of months which updates the ps3 operating system etc.

See link to show that its every couple of months or so

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PlayStation_3_System_Software



Now the other type update you get is when you put a disc in, this is to update the game software

This update is used to add new things the game or repair known problems with the game and is made by the game makers and can take between 1 and 10 minutes to download depending on size with many under 3mins

This type of update is only usually needed when you first put a new game in your ps3
but ocassionally the makers release another update to add new features
example of this is the febuary update to fifa for transfers and ultimate team being added

Therefore people people complaining about updating everytime they put a game in are talking rubbish or are not saving when the update is finished downloading!
#38
Can you not just cancel the updating? I know consoles tend to be locked down even tighter than apple products but can you not even turn off the autoupdate?

PS3 is so much than Xbox 360 and Wii.
