You cannot perform background download of this content

I don't get why they don't have it set so that you can download ANY files as background content, especially for game patches! I thought I'd check out LBP 2 since I haven't in a few months and suddenly there's a 995 MB update! I have fairly terribly internet so it's gonna take me a while to download that! It wouldn't be a problem if I could just have it DL while I'm doing something else on the console.

At least just make it so that I can set my PS3 to turn off when it's done downloading so I can leave it on while I sleep. I'm not gonna enjoy having to leave my PS3 on just to download a patch like this and then eventually have to get up and turn it off. Is there any special reason they have to have these files where you can't do anything else with them, even set the console to turn off when they're done?

Glad DmC shipped a million copies and was a success. Supporting risk-takers and change is how the industry grows.

Ah so that's why, they want you to pay? Makes sense. Well, this won't be the first time I've suffered through a company's attempt to irritate me into paying. I have an android device, after all. I can wait.

I've never used the auto download stuff with PS+, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't work like "download in background" content.

Somewhere in the "Settings" menu there is an option where you can tell your PS3 to power itself off if there has been no activity for "X" amount of time. I'm not sure if downloading counts as activity, but it should be a simple enough thing for you to test.

no, it's just a feature. the normal way of patching has been the same since the PS3 launch.

Yeah, because clearly that's the only benefit to PS+

Hah.

It might not be the only benefit, but if it was witheld so that PS+ has it as a benefit, I can do without it. I just think that the way the system works now isn't very good. I should at least be able to tell the system to turn off after the download is finished. That would make me happy by itself.
