Downloads showing how much time is left = awesome.

6 replies 3 views Edited Apr 3, 2009
So I just downloaded an update for call of duty since I deleted it last and it now shows how much time is left, which is great I was often left wondering "how long is this damn download going to take" well now I know!

I used to do the math in my head by looking how fast the download was going. I guess it is easier for me to this since my download speed has always been good and steady with the PSN.  Nevertheless, I find this to be one of my favorite features in the 2.70 firmware.

Well it is less useful to me and some other, my connection varies outragously,  It can go from taking 5 minutes 2 taking 25 2 taking 14 ect. because it bases it on your connection speed over your remain amount to be dloaded.  So it is really more of a trivial little nothing, but hey at least they are trying to make there system better so I still give them the thumbs up.

too bad it was "impossible" to show remaining time estimate for background downloads
*sigh*
