The stupid update is taking forever!!!!

#1 Posted by MattyFTM (14364 posts) -

Is anyone else having this problem? I'd guess the servers are getting pounded at the moment. It might just be that my internet connection is crappy, but most people said it takes about 5 minutes, and mine currently says 82 minutes remaining (but it keeps jumping anywhere from 112 to 60 minutes), and my connection isn't that bad. Stupid servers!!!! I want to play mirrors edge for gods sake!!!!

I just downloaded it like 2 hours ago and it was pretty fast

Maybe with America waking up around now and everyone turning on their xboxes it's slower now? Or maybe my internet connection just sucks that badly? I dunno. Either way I want it to HURRY THE FUCK UP!!!!!!!!!

Edity: the way the estimated time keeps changing so much makes me think it is the servers. Even if my connection does suck that badly the speed should still be fairly constant. I dunno.

Well maybe it's just that my internet is on a slow day today. Either way it's starting to get really annoying.

Hurrah for you! 

I think you'll find it was all worthwhile! its a good improvement.
I hope you've souped up your avatar!

The community (XNA) games content is a great new feature. You can't initally see all of them unless you view all games then filter by community games. It kind of makes up for Netflix.

I updated it a few hours ago and literally the first 'system update found' then the actual update applying took a total of not even 2 minutes probably, dunno why yours took so long.

I downloaded it about 4-5 hours ago and it took 2-3 minutes. So yeah, pretty fast. Kinda liking it so far. And I live in Finland (Europe) btw.
