Many people dont have Internet on Playstation 3 cause they internet providers,will Sony Computer Entertaiment make demos that can be download from PC and then intstall to PS3 throw USB Flash Drive?

I hope somebody from SCE will read this.

Curious as to why you want to do this... speed up the DL speeds? If so I recommend you look at this:  Re: Local proxy to speed up downloads?

 

Lol, should read your OP more careful. So your ISP doesn't let you use the PS3 on the internet? or are you not able to because you cannot go wired or have a wireless router?

Welcome to the boards

 

Currently, only system updates can be downloaded from the PC. There has been an in-store demo released before (R&C:ToD) so you never know if another developer might go that route, but I kind of doubt it.

this is a pretty good idea. instead of keeping the ps3 on just for a demo, you can download it on to the pc and put it in a flash drive, and extract it to the ps3, good idea! i mean, you can do that with updates, then they should make it work for demos too

I believe that the British PTOM also routinely comes with a disc of demos...

I subscribe to the US version of P:TOM. Why do the folks across the pond get extra stuff when we dont? LOL

I believe it's a completely different magazine.  Perhaps not even published by the same people...

That would be goo idea to download a demo off playstation.com instead and just throw it on a usb drive and upload to your PS3.
