Gaming Consoles Torrent Traffic

proman1234
I'm an IT manager for a network that provides internet to an apartment complex which has 300 apartments. The other day we were doing a network sniff using wire shark, we came across and apartment that was using bit torrent but when ever we try to catch the person he claims that he is only playing PS3 which has the same IP address that we saw on wire shark. My question is does anyone know if the PS3 or any gaming console uses bittorrent traffic for updating games or something along those lines? This is the first time I have seen anything like this if anyone else has had this problem just wondering if gaming consoles are using torrent traffic or if there are any other suggestions on using a different program other than wire shark to help our sniffing efforts. Any information on this will be helpful.

Thanks
