Slow Game Updates

5 replies 322 views Edited Dec 27, 2012

I just did a game update and it took 30mins to download 55mb. Its never taken that long. I just noticed when downloading madden updates a few days ago. Nothing wrong with my network. I don't have speed issues when downloading files on my computers. My PS3 speedtest show 10/7. There's no difference between wired or wirelessly. I tried a different router and different ISP. I opened all ports on my router and still no change.

 

Anyone else having this issue?

Unfortunately, join the club....lots of talk lately about this...and Sony is no help.

 

At least you are able to update.

So there's no info on this? I just got inFamous 2 and it downloaded the 15GB game file in less than 2 hours. I went to play the game and I have 3 updates waiting. I've been downloading those 3 updates for more than 2 hours now. Ridiculously slow and very irritating.

Game update are not on PSN servers, they are on GAME servers run buy the publisher. More money on patch download speed results in less money for game server speed. The faster a patch downloads the less popular the game is...

Patches and updates can still be downloaed even when the Store and account management are ofline this shows there independance from SCE Store servers. They can even be downloaded when signed out as the games Dial home on game start up...

thanks for the info. this server sucks then man. trying to get a update for Infamous 2 and it's now saying 421 Minutes remaining. I know it's not my end because I just went online and had no issue playing borderlands 2. i'll just leave it on overnight to get the update i guess. Is there any way to download the patch externally and put it on a flashdrive like you can do with the playstation system updates?

 

EDIT:

Found the issue. It was my DNS address. I simplyed change it to Google's DNS and my updates are back to normal speed.
