    I purchased a game that is 7GB from PSN and that will take at least 6 hours to download.


    Can I use background download to keep on downloading while the ps3 is off, or it must be on until the download is over?

    Has to be on but there's a check box that says shut down PS3 after download finishes

    Do you have PS+? If so, let it download during it's scheduled download time. It downloads+installs+switches off automatically.

    Settings, automatic downloads. It will then let you pick a time.
