Hitman Absolution download is taking forever.

5 replies 6764 views Edited Aug 9, 2013

I downloaded Hitman absolution Tuesday when it was free for playstion plus members. The game itself says that it is 17 GB. This is my third day downloading, and it's only at 34%. Most digital games I downloaded in the past only take two days tops to download. Does anybody know if this is just because of the size or another problem? Any possible solutions?

I have to say that mine is taking some time too Aceman, not sure why either.

It's taking forever for me too. Lately all my downloads have been taking longer than usual. It even took 5 minutes to prepare to download in the background.

Hitman Absolution only took me about 2 hours to download on Tuesday night, which is about average for a 17GB download on my 18Mbps connection.

 

Wired.  Always wired.  At least for PS3 downloads.

I'm wired too and my downloads used to be done in a reasonable amount of time. Lately though they've been slow. Last night I even asked my wife if our provider put on new restrictions as far as bandwidth or a data cap or something. She said nothing has changed as far as she knows but something has changed because there is a very noticeable difference in download times now.

So it's day four of downloading and it's only at 66% with 11/17 GB. Do you think the download would speed up if I switched my connection to wired?
