Welcome to the PlayStation Community.
Can someone tell me why running my ps3 off a mobile hotspot would prevent me from downloading games in the background.
I don't think it's the fact that it's a hotspot per se but because mobile hot-spots are usually notoriously hard & unstable to use anyway.
Why does the kind of connection affect what the playstation does or doesn't do.
I've never considered mobile hotspots particularly stable when it comes to using a PS3 with one, the PS3 really requires a broadband connection to run properly.
