    [Answered] Game updates outside the PSN help?


    Hi everybody.

    I'm a technologically retarded ps3 player. All I can do with the ps3 is play games and on the PC its work and use google.

    At home I have a problem with a very slow and unstable internet connection, so can't really connect the ps3 to the internet, much less update games.

    I bought the F1 2010 game and now cannot update it for nothing in the world.

    Finally, my question is: Can I update this game downloading the update file from the internet and transfer it using an flashdrive?

    I've seen a method described here, where you install some kind of PS3 server on the pc, but got my rear kicked three ways till sunday by Windows Vista.

    Might there be an easier way for the technologically challenged?

    Thanks in advance

    Methods below assume you're using a PS3 JB device to play your games.

    First, you can update your games using either of the 2 links below:

    1. How to Download PS3 Game Update Packages on Your PC

    2. How to Update Games on a JailBroken PS3 Guide

    I believe the steps above are detailed enough for most people, even the non-tech savvy ones. Hope this helps!

    if your not on a JB system, then I think you best bet would be to get that PS3 on an internet connection that would allow you to update your games.

    updating game updates outside the PSN can only be done in JB mode.
