    Just curious of what you guys/gals do while updating a game/ps3? From short updates to long ass hours, what do you do during that time of updating?

    Well now I have auto-update with PS Plus

    Before I'd just get on PS3Trophies.com or watch TV, read, or just find something to do. If a game I really wanted to play right now needed an update, I'd probably switch between getting on this site or reading Death Note.

    If it's very short then I just sit there and wait so I can finally play. If it's long then I just watch TV or read.

    If it's going to be hours updating, I cancel and wait till just before I'm going to sleep and let it update while I'm dreaming. For shorter ones I can watch something on youtube while it updates

    If it's a small update, I'll wait but if long then I'll leave until I'm going to sleep put the Sony's auto power off thing on and just let it go.

    Just like others, if it's short, then I just sit through it. If it's really long, I'll just go do something else like watch TV or surf the internet.

    Even short ones are pretty long on my internet (it's very slow most days) so I've grown accustomed to being on various sites online: tumblr, stumbleupon, facebook... or I'll just watch some TV/a movie.

    If it's a short update, I'll get up and do some of the housework I put off to play. If it's a long update, then I'll get on youtube and watch LPs till its done.

    ^^Pretty much this!!^^ Thanks to PS+, I hardly do updates manually. Unless its a brand new game, then I'll sit through the update.

    Hahaha, they are terrible right now.

    I usually just sit and wait, even if it is a longer update.

    If I know in advance about a big update, I'll usually start it as soon as I get home from work. Then I do all my normal post-work stuff like showering, feeding/playing/walking the dogs, eating dinner, etc.... if it's a surprise update, it's not too hard to find something to do around the house or reading.
