PS3 online gaming and usage

Recently bought PS3 and playing world at war online. How much should I expect my usage to go up if I am playing this for hours on end? Is it a very high usage pasttime? Also - I know this is a daft question but . . . will the usage definitely be classified as "gaming"? Thanks, Grim.

Re: PS3 online gaming and usage

Hiya,
Standard XBOX Live traffic (ie: no downloads, just online play) apparently uses about 20MB per hour.
Personally, I think that's a touch on the low side and I'm not sure whether or not PS3 traffic would vary.  I'd expect it to be picked up as Gaming traffic, but it shouldn't be particularly high.

I guess each game is different.  I have noticed that since my son got the Xbox 360 (we also have the PS3) our gaming usage has really increased, he plays Halo 3 and it seems that this game eats BW.  I play Motorstorm online quite a bit and this is particularly low considering the time I spend playing it Wink

Myself and my housemate play World at War most nights on the PC and also use teamspeak at the same time, our gaming traffic and voip combined is around 200Mb per night.
