I have been a Satellite Broadband dealer for 15 years and sell HughesNet among other brands. None of the systems are good for gaming and most won't do other things that require a stable latency like VOIP or VPN. Unfortunately there are many dealers that only care about sales and won't tell the customers that. The theoretical minimum latency is about 550 ms and actual latency can run up to about 2 seconds. The best system would be a commercial one like Skycasters where the latency and speeds are controlled but be prepared to pay several hundred to over $1000 per month for this service and then add on overage charges which can run a couple of hundred dollars per day. Satellite is a great internet source for email and general surfing when no other forms of high speed is available or for use as an emergency backup to another system.

A lot of people have problems playing online games with satellite internet. The problem is that while your download speed is usually okay, the upload speed to the satellite is too low and the latency (the time between when your computer sends a message and the satellite relays it to the other party) is way too high.

Unfortunately, you probably will not be able to play any kind of PS3 games online via HughesNet. Computer browser-based games would likely be okay, but your latency will be too high to connect to any PS3 game servers.

Good luck, and hope this is helpful!

We just got Hughesnet yesterday specifically to game. Got a ps3 too. Understand the latency prob, but have played pretty good at a couple of hotels with Hughesnet. So figured it'd be better than nothing. But, nat type changed to 3 and is restricting everything. Have tried everything to change it and can't. Ps and router techs all blame Hughesnet. Thinking it just doesn't work to play. We can sign in and download updates and ad-ons, but no playing.

It is probably just due to network problems with PSN. They dont have everything fixed quite yet.

I have never heard of needing to pay any kind of fee to play games on the PS3. Is the fee needed to play the game offline or only to play online with others, because I've only heard of a fee to buy games off of the Playstation store, and that is a one-time payment

MY japoneese ps3


The pal ps2 games and dvds will not play on a Japanese ps3 due to region coding. You can play all ps3 games and blu ray films because they do not use region coding. Some games will also play differently on a ps3, for example, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (I highly recommend the game) will not have any blood on a Japanese ps3. The region coding feature can not be changed/modified. I would recommend returning Japanese ps3 and purchasing a European model instead if that is possible. Bon chance.

The problem with that is the PS3 that you bought is tuned for Japanese dvds and games, You may have to get your PS3 modded to support the French games. However I am unaware of the legality of having your PS3 modded.
Good Luck
