Why I hate downloading from PSN

And still rising. 

I can download Civ 5 at 3MB per sec but this is what's going on with this mandatory patch.

Man I feel your pain. I'm surprised it didn't take a week to download the Enslaved demo.

lol unlucky, psn dl speeds do tend to really inexplicably suck balls

Cancel the dl and try it again. It usually works if stuff like this happens

@Interfect: Yeah, I tried. At first it was doing the same thing but it eventually started to roll back and I'm in. Still, way too long for 178mb.

@nicklott: Damn... that sucks. Usually that fixes it for me.... :(

PSN isn't exactly blazing fast for me but it's not horribly slow either.  I downloaded that patch today and it took less than 10 mins, maybe like 5...

Thats awful. Luckily that never happened to me.

I went into my router settings and went into advanced wireless settings and turned the Transmission Rate from Auto to around 9-11 mbps. it's still not as fast as my 360 when downloading, but it's steady and doesn't vary wildly, so big deal.
