Will the PS3 continue and finish downloads after it is shut down?

  1. I am curious about this as I am downloading a rather large demo at a rather slow rate and was wondering if I shut down the PS3 will it finish the downloads (like my 360), or will I have to resume them when the system is started up again? I do not want to leave the PS3 on for long periods of time if I am not going to be using it. Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Yes. If you're doing a background download and then turn your system off, it will resume when you turn it back on. Or, during a background download, if you wish for it to finish and turn itself off, you can just scroll all the way to the left on the XMB, then go all the way up to where it says Turn the System Off. Select that, and it will ask you if you want it to finish the download and then turn off. Set that, and not only will it finish the download, but it will also take it upon itself to install it for you, and then shut off. Then when you turn the PS3 back on, the demo/game will be ready for you to play.

  1. No. It will only download and then shutdown on it's own.
