Q: What is the most lenient mobile hot-spot device for internet gaming? At least in the eastern US

We’ve recently bought an RV. It has a flat screen in the back with an HDMI port. So naturally I want to throw my PS3 in there and burn rubber and auxiliary power.

We /really/ want to allow multiple connections. That’s usually fine, the distance isn’t a problem in there.

It’s not clear to me the required Mb/s speed required for PS3 online play, I’d like to know. Also, the Gb/month should really be good for that sort of thing over a decent period.

We may use this for our house as well. Any ideas please?

    I don’t know how much data the PS3 uses when it is online but normally there is too much latency to play any games online via satellite reliably. The only real reliable way of playing PS3 games online is to have a wired connection like DSL or cable. You can connect to these connections using WiFi and not have a problem but I would not expect to be able to play games online using satellite.

    Thanks, I was hoping there is /some/ way of gaming on the go. Y’know, like not using satellites or something.. like using one of those verizon or sprint cards. Or is that satellite?? I’m confused sorry 😛
