    Hello all.
    I was downloading two games from the U.S store today, when I noticed that they were downloading incredibly slow and would sometimes just stay at the same percentage for a while. I pause both of them and then resumed one of them (as I was getting fed up). All of a sudden, the download speed and percentage downloaded shot up. It was using my entire connection bandwidth 8mbps (approx 800kbps download speed).
    After a while, the same thing happend and the download slowed down and stuck at the same level for a while, so I repeated the previous step and it shot up again. I managed to download TWO 800mb demos in under 20min.:eek:

    Has any one else noticed this or is it just me.

    Downloaded Stranglehold and NBA 08 from the US store this week. Both came down in about 20 minutes and never seemed to slow down or stick.

    Downed Harry potter and Fifa 08 last night, from the UK store, and that rocketed down too.

    Never had any issues other than when the store has problems.
    I take it you are also now on update 1.93.???

    Is the download speed thing not necessarily a PSN problem, but related to my internet connection etc ??

    For instance, FIFA took me about 3 and a half hours to download - anyone experience the same, or is my broadband speed just cack ??

    On the FIFA front - only worth downloading to play football on the PS3. It's o.k. in my opinion, nothing ground breaking.

    Check in the FIFA 08 thread in the PS3 Games forum. There are quite a few opinions in there.

    I used to have an issue with wireless speed being fairly slow but I changed a setting on my router and have never looked back. (I set up a DMZ on the routers ip address for those that wanna know. That seemed to do the trick)

    Fifa is pretty good but nothing amazing. Damn hard though. Mind you, I have always preferred Pro Evo myself.

    Just for those interested. I downloaded the Harry Potter for my best mates daughter. She loves all that tosh.
    It actually looks great and pretty much exactly like Hogwarts from the movie. Playability is really fluid.
    The only problem with it......It's Harry Potter and it's a naff game but good to look at none the less.
