Backing up my Ps3 -- an outrageous, lunacy, pandemonium amount of time left

#1SophisticationPosted 11/24/2012 6:53:41 PM
39 hours and 31 min... Sure I have 430gb of a 1tb hdd used up with all of my digitally bought games I cherish and love so much -- but this is lunacy of the highest order. If I were to do this same workload on my Pc, it'd be done in under an hour.

Sony needs to work this out for next gen. I'm not sure if it's the fat 32 format or what, but this needs to go... I wish, on Ps4, Sony would allow us to use external drives to play our games off of and back our games up to... Maybe encrypt them with a Ps4 code that the drive can only be read using it or something... I dunno... Or maybe let us save our backup file to the cloud during these times.

This is pandemonium, folks...

hahahahah, yeah, sure... With the way Sony handles their download list? Please... That thing is so un-sophistocated it's not even funny. I have over 1400 downloads, and of course, since Sony likes to toss everything into one long list of needless junk (like demo's) you have to weed through and find everything, DLC, Avatars, Themes, Games, minis, Psone, you name it... It's dreadful at best.

You don't seem to quite know how to properly use the words in the topic title.

Yes, but 39 hours? C'mon... that's nearly 2 days. Then, factor in the restore process... The Ps3 is going to be on for another 2 days after this whole process gets done. It's pandemonium, guys. Absolute pandemonium.

Damn, I would have hoped it could have taken longer for you. Then a freak lighting bolt would have taken out the power line in your neighborhood that supplies your internet connection.

DmC looks like a good game. I also enjoyed the latest Final Fantasy and Resident Evil games. I like video games.

Ha~ that's still a possibility -- It's stormy overhead and the winds are high. Probably all that cloud seeding those idiots are doing every day.
