Disconnecting Internet During Download.

5 replies 635 views Edited Jun 22, 2012

OK so I made the mistake of installing infamous 2 while I have several games downloading.

From what I hear it dramatically increases the install time.  I didn't know the severity of it until

now as I have been installing infamous for about 2 hours and its at 8%.  So without the ability of

canceling the install I see 3 options. Wait the god only knows how many hours, perform a hard shutdown

Which I don't want to do or disconnect my Ethernet cable to stop the background downloads.  I'm leaning

towards disconnecting the internet but am worried that I will have to restart the background downloads.

Any help would be great as this in brutal.

Is Infamous 2 supposed to take over two hours to install?

What PS3 do you have?

320 gb slim with probably 200 gb free.  Its a 15gb install.  I have read that if you are doing downloads while installing

it takes forever.  I have never been downloading anything while installing at the same time before.  So not sure what it

do to the download in progress if I kill the connection.  I think I have 5 more things to download and I may just disconnect

Right when one finishes so the next won't have much progress that could be lost.

Theoretically, the downloads will pause and pick up when you reconnect the ethernet cable again.

Cool that's what I'm hoping for.

So finally said screw it and pulled the internet.  Went from 14% to 52% now in about 10 minutes.  That's ridiculous 2 hours for 14% and 10 minutes to go 38%.  Had to be a design flaw, as powerful as the ps3 is it should be able to walk and chew gum.
