I have a set download limit per month before my connection slows and I would like to know how much gaming uses. For example how many megs (ballpark), would an hour of playing halo use? Is there a simple way to find out?

Hello Zone out, it all depends on various things. But I'd assume that an hour of gaming wouldn't do much, but if you're gaming a lot then it could do some damage to your bandwith.

I'd say an hour could do around 20mbph.

I'm not sure if you can do this on Xbox, but on PS3 you can check your upload and your download speeds to check.

I'd google that one.

Thanks for the reply. I had a look around myself and the best estimate I found was about 80MB per hour, either way is fine for my needs.

Oh right, glad you found your answer.

It's interesting to know how much internet gaming actually uses.


Have a nice day

BUT: don't forget to include patches and revisions that must be downloaded from time to time. Depending on the game and number of patches, this could be significant in adding to the normal downloads of simply playing the game.

It should use around 35-40MB and if you're hosting the game then it would be around 100-150 MB.
