Hey all, you all know the welcome back program and you all probably picked InFAMOUS, so did i.
My problem is, though that when i try to start the download for InFAMOUS, it takes around 1 thousand or 2 thousand minutes to download, impossible, not even at 5% it usally kicks me out of PS store with an error starting with 80D, this is not the problem though because this usally happens and its usally already 1 hour in the download.
This problem only occurs for InFAMOUS, i am currently downloading Little Big Planet 1 which, at the moment, is at 10% with 85 minutes left, a normal download time for a full Playstation game.
I'm pretty sure InFAMOUS is working for the most people because 2 of my friends are playing it, am i the only one with the problem and if its a well known problem, how do i solve it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am currently attempting to download inFAMOUS as well. I started downloaded the game around 11 eastern time and it is now two and a half hours later and it is not even half download. When it first started downloading it started at 674 mins till the game would be downloaded.
2000 minutes!? Thats with 3 zeros, right? jesus H Chist, I got mine in about 3-4 hours. I started te DL before I went to sleep Friday night about 1030 pm, woke up between 2 an230 and it was finished. it takes a while to install too, maybe 20 minutes or so.
either way, thanks SONY for the free games. I honestly woul have NEVER played inFAMOUS or WipEout HD if they hadnt given them for free. I didnt want to pay $27 for a gme as old as inFAMOUS, although I asumed there was a reason behind it holding value so well, consiering theres no MP.
I already have LBP and Dead nation, so my 2nd choice was like a meh choice. But I am really enjoying WipEout HD. I still dont understand all there is to it, like Zone Races and how to charge shield and whatnot, but its alot of fun. My son likes it too.
Kudos to SCE
LittleBigPlanet only has around 2 GB and InFamous takes up to 7 GB. LittleBigPlanet Download time is like the PSN Games because the GB is around the same, LBP doesn't take that much.
InFamous however takes a long time. However, if the Percentage goes slow. I suggest Restarting the System. My Game Download was taking too long until I restarted and it increased the Speed.
Also, are you Downloading this via Playstation Store? I also suggest doing "Background Download" since you wrote you got an Error from the Playstation Store. Try Background Download, much better.

I've noticed it also depends on what time you are on can vary download times. If on during times of peak usage the download times can be slower.
I generally wait until late in the evening (after 10 PM PDT) to do PSN downloads.
I am into my third attempted install of InFAMOUS. Each download took around 100 minutes, followed by a 15-20 install. The issue I have is that near the end of the install process, around 97-99% complete with the installation, an error message comes up and I am finding that only around 6600 MB has been installed. I have enough memory on my Hard Drive and was wondering if anyone else was having this issue and/or any remedies to resolve?
