Download not moving when playing a game?

7 replies 170 views Edited Aug 19, 2014

Is it normal? If so, how do I disable this feature? I'm not even playing an online game. I was playing a PS2 game (Persona 3. Great game 10/10). Thanks for the future responses. :*

I have had these issues as well.  It seems the ps4 is either quite weak, can't multitask or not working properly.  I was downloading some games and my kids was playing Just Dance 2014.  The game was not loading the song to be able to play games while the downloading was taking place.

from Houston, the city people report to when they have a problem.

Ps3 only downloads games in the background if the game you play is not a Ps classic or a Ps3 game that has online features.

The reason why PS3 is limited like that is due to the lack of RAM. It used a divorced ram architecture.

256mb for system, 256mb for graphics.
