I bought new ps3 & want to try out some demo games on it. But i want to download the demo only onto my PC & then install it in my ps3.

i.e Can i download ps3 games demo on the computer and transfer them to my ps3? As internet is only available in the PC which is in another location from PS3.

Please help me on this.

The PS3 demos are only available directly from the PS3's PlayStation Store. You'll need to pick yourself up a router and get internet to the PS3.

What he said. I think the 360 has the ability to queue up downloads on the PC and have them download when you turn on the console. I'd like to see that feature implemented with the PS3.

Yea but that isn't the problem here. The guy doesn't have internet for his console. Only for his pc.

Well, how does he connect to the internet? I presume his router or modem has an ethernet port, so just hookup an ethernet cable and connect the PS3 to the 'net

Oops. didn't read the "other location from PS3" - can't the PS3 be moved for a couple hours?

Maybe his router is in a location without a tv. That would be kinda hard to move a tv too.

If you think about it the ps3 has that but you start up the dl with the psp through remote play.

Yea, I liked that feature. But, unfortunately, you couldn't hardwire the PSP, and if you weren't around a wi-fi signal you were out of luck. As good as the remote play feature was though, it wasn't enough to make me keep my PSP. I got rid of it a few weeks ago.

That is true but most people I know with a pc or ps3 have a wireless router.

I knew of downloading demo from PS3 but wanted to do that from a PC(which has internet) which is in another location. So the answer to this is NO??? Am i right? Can't I burn the demo onto DVD & run it from PS3? What is the actual problem? Is the size too big or something else? Please comment

No you can't you can only download the demo from the PS store using the PS3 you can't access the PS store from PC

Like I said up above, you'll need to get internet to the PS3 to download the demos- that is the only way to get them.
