PS4 Owners Dilemma With Data Sucking Updates Of Games And Patches by chubbyman(m): 7:55am On Apr 11, 2019
Good morning peeps,I recently acquired a PS4 and lo and behold the first day I fired it up to do the PlayStation Network registration I noticed that by the time I was done my phone received a text that my data is almost used up and I should buy some soon,checked my phone data and I was perplexed all the more to than 5gig I had initially has been sucked by the PS4 despite the fact that auto download wasn't enabled in settings menu, but somehow games update and Dlc downloaded regardless of this precaution, and unfortunately from my search through the web people say there's little you can do to stop this trend.
So I'm asking how do PS4 owners in Nigeria deal with this anomaly cause data is limited over here especially if you're using GSM networks and I really need to play with my PS4 especially online multiplayer games but I'm afraid it might cost me an arm and a leg in data cost,really need your advice.

Get an ISPN Mifi or router with an unlimited night plan and do your Downloads at night or get an unlimited 24/7 plan.

The cost just playing video games in Nigeria is high. There is no way around it, you just have to.

Online gaming doesn't take that much data ...at least from the games I play every now and then . 1gb smile will last for a while . Don't know about other games Sha ...I could be worng about other games as I only play UFC 3 online .

It's the downloads of updates and games that consume a lot of data .

Buy smile for online gaming and any other ISP for downloading depending on your location bro...

I'm calling bullshit on your lame ass comment, tearing someone down to build yourself up is a way to give a helpful advice, next time comment in a civilised manner.

Oga bullshit caller, pls offer another insight on the situation since data consumption is part of the properties of online gaming. Your firmware and game software must be up to date

Playing on online should be free at least if you're paying for the internet...that's why the PC gamers are having a go!

Playing online with pc seems convoluted, bros... Good internet is regarded as a basic amenity, not reason enough to have free server access

What do you mean by playing online seems convoluted? And shouldn't game companies be creating free servers at least as free service, moreover that's the only reason I'm keeping my ps3. Free multi-player online anytime with friends! Nothing beats that!!!

I thought one must subscribe to psn network(20k+) before he can play online on any PlayStation?
Re: PS4 Owners Dilemma With Data Sucking Updates Of Games And Patches by Eltonluigi(m): 5:30pm On Apr 12, 2019
You don't need any subscription bro, you can play online multi-player games free on ps3!

I know the PS3 is not a data guzzler unlike the PS4 that can finish 50gig in a day without breaking a sweat.

What games do you play online and on what console bro? PSN+ sub is like 60$/20k a year which is way cheaper than subbing for a monthly fee of $10

I own both the Range Rover and corolla figuratively speaking and they aren't comparable but unique in their own way!

There's nothing unique about the corolla except it's cheaper, consumes less fuel
