I'm downloading the Destiny Beta and wanted to pop in my copy of Bioshock Infinite, but would it harm the PS3 for doing too much work? Should I just leave the Destiny Beta downloading and once it's finished, then go back to playing Bioshock? Just wondering if I will damage the PS3 in the long run if I download one game and play another at the same time

No harm, if you can download in background while playing, do it.

Unless you are trying to play a multiplayer game, you'll be fine.

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

Some games will pause the downloads automatically I think, maybe multiplayer games only.

Get Split/Second on PS3/360, innovative and one of the best racing/action games, single player and online offline multiplayer and great music.
