PS3 Background Downloading Of Game Patches Coming Soon

One of the biggest gripes gamers have had about their consoles is that games need to be manually updated which means users will have to wait for the new version of the game to be downloaded. That could be a thing of the past if a new rumor doing the rounds is to be believed.

According to a recent update on TSA, Sony Playstation 3 could soon be introducing a background downloading feature that will install game patches when a game is not being played. TSA writes,

“TheSixthAxis cannot verify the information but if the PS3 can figure out which games you own (or at least, have played recently) and automatically grab the latest patches in the background whilst you play another game then this would make at least one person very happy indeed.”

It is still a vague rumor at the moment and so take it with a grain of salt.
