Sony PS3 Background Downloads Coming in March

PS3 VerticalWhile the Sony PlayStation 3 certainly hasn’t yet lived up to original expectations, there are still several million of us who did buy the console, and would like it to become part of our regular gaming regimen.

Sure, many of us are annoyed by the frequent system updates that we’ve had to sit through, but most of the downloads have improved the console in some way. Most recently, the 1.5 and 1.51 updates fixed the majority of problems with PS2 backwards compatibility. Now, Sony plans on releasing an update this March (tentatively called v1.6) which will fix one of the biggest shortcomings of the console, the lack of background downloading.

According to a recent Games Informer interview with Sony boss Phil Harrison, the forthcoming release will add the ability to download while you do other things, which the Xbox 360 has been able to do for some time now. The release is also supposed to include some other significant changes, but they haven’t yet been revealed.
