I have what seems to me an odd problem with having game updates stall out when I am trying to download them over my wireless connection, and last night was sufficiently annoying enough for my to finally ask about it.

1. When I turned on my PS3 it said a system update was required. I downloaded the entire update v4.25 with no problem over my wireless connection.

2. I put in my Madden 13 disc and was told I need to install game update 1.02. *groan*

3. Naturally my update stalled out a bunch of times as I tried to update over the wireless connection. Because that happens ALL the time no matter the game title or size of the download.

4. I disconnected the 50' ethernet cable from my router and dragged it all through the house and down the stairs and plugged it into my PS3 so I could download over the wired connection.

So is there a server difference in system updates vs. game updates? It really doesn't make any sense that I could download a much larger system update with no problems (and I never have problems with those) but not a game update (which I can NEVER completely download).

Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....


Revenge of the Sith = one thumb up from me. Fuck shit. I want to tittie fuck your ass.

Torchslasher had this sort of problem last year, and ths solution worked for him:

    There's a 2010 thread that suggests
    - Go To Network Settings
    - Change Media Server to Disable

I don't know why I have thought about doing it too; my wireless never stops working, but can be incredibly slow. 8 hours for the Madden demo! - luchablog

I did buy Prototype 2 last week. So far it is pretty good, although it feels too familiar to not only the first one, but it feels like most GTA style games as well. Some of the controls are tough to use, especially the Hunting mechanic.
