Playstation 3 not updating games
All these things (the necessity of console updating, the large download size of updates for both consoles and games, the Christmas Day server overloads, coupled with the possibility of another DDo S attack on the game networks) paint a pretty clear picture.
If you want your kids to be able to sit down and spend a lazy Christmas Day afternoon playing video games then you’re going to need to update the game console ahead of time with any updates, download any games (and/or the game updates), and have the console ready to rock the minute it comes out of the box.
Not only do the game consoles themselves need updates but the games we play on them need updates (and often need to be downloaded in the first place before we can even begin to update and play them).
RELATED: Unlike the game consoles of today the consoles of yesteryear, ranging from the early first-generation game consoles like the Magnavox Odyssey right up to fifth-generation consoles like the Sony Play Station, had hard-coded firmware that rarely (if ever) received any update.
It matters because these updates are large, fairly frequent, and even on a good day can take a bit of time to download and apply.
A good day for console updating would be a random weekday in the middle of the year when network traffic is at a low point. Christmas Day, when millions of people around the globe open up their Christmas presents, plug them in, and slam the game maker’s networks with requests for updates.
Isn't it time that someone created a movement to highlight what products you actually own once you've bought them?
Who would have thought we’d still be talking about PS3 in 2019?
