I was wondering, how much internet usage does the ps3 use per month for you? and how many GB do I need to be safe?

 

I have 30GB atm, but i dont want to go over and avoid unnecessary bills.

 

thanks.

 

Blake.

Online gaming uses about 20-25mb/hr so thats alot of hours. The game demos are the big users, usually well over 1GB

With 30GB you'll get about 1200hrs of online gaming per month, or 40hrs a day...........oh wait, there's only 24hrs in a day :smileytongue:

 

So yeah, more than enough

We only got 5GB and easily manage....sometimes a game has lots of updates and can chew it up fast though.

that's a very broad question.

let's see... firing must be an upload but do they only count if you hit someone? Does a RPG use more MB than a revolver? Does a care package use less download bandwidth if you don't open it?

 

It is very difficult to measure.

You would have to compare a long period of heavy MW2 online play to a period of no MW2 online play and then average it out. I don't think anyone has actually done it yet or they would have answered the previous question.

Most PS3 games use at maximum 30-50mb per hour during online play.

I think MW2 is lower than this, of the order ~10mb per hour with headset.

its impossible to calculate exactly as each user plays different games, and each game requires different amounts of data usage

The term "waste" would not be appropriate for, well, pretty much any user. Especially given that it doesn't use a large amount (with regards to solely playing online)

Hey sohraab5,

 

It's impossible to tell you exactly how much you might use, as there are many factors contributing that we cannot know.

 

Suffice to say, 40GB for the average user for solely online play should be adequate.

 

The best way to check would be to check your usage prior to playing, play for an exact amount of time (1hr, 2hrs etc) - then check your usage after (bear in mind how often / when your ISP updates usage data) and see what the difference is, and then repeat this over two of three days to get an idea of your average usage.

You actually can never really tell how much a game will use exactly. Especially with a game such as MW2

 where every map is different, uses different amount of gigs for download, especially with different kill streaks being used as well. The best way is to record what gigs you have left, turn off everything that uses net except your ps3, play an hour, then record again and calculate the difference.
