Is it not reccomended to play a game while downloading another game?

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.
