Re: PS3 System Update

I've had to resort to grabbing it from the Sony site on sticking it on USB drive.  Via the console it was crawling, only managed 3% in two hours, and yet on the PC using the same internet connection and router session it was done by the time I'd nipped downstairs and made a coffee.
Yet Plusnet still maintain that there's nothing throttled about the PSN.  Yeah right, pull the other one it has bells on it.

PSN wont be throttled at all, however it probably uses a content distributer (e.g. Akamaii (iirc)) - which means the downloads will listed as 'download servers' - and therefore be shaped accordingly to the package your on.

Then why is the same file is downloaded in minutes on the PC yet only gets to 3% after two hours on the PS3?  Surely if it's coming down from the same place on the same connection, and router session, it would be the same on both machines.

360 game updates are not allowed to be more than 5MB. MS restrict game devs to 5MB which helps. Some ps3 game patches are over 50MB. When I was with Plusnet I just stopped playing my PS3 because I never had time to update it, during the day it was way too slow and at night, well I'm not nocturnal.

not necessarily, both devices will handle the traffic differently, its quite possible the traffic on the PC is being routed incorrectly, and your getting more speed than your supposed too  Huh - shame you cant run a wireshark on the PS3 eh? Smiley
And size really does matter, unfortunately PSN updates *are* massive...

Re: PS3 System Update

you can capture xbox and ps3 with wireshark, if you have a pc with network card and wireless or 2 lan ports.
just bridge the 2 network interfaces and hook you console up and run wireshark

Re: PS3 System Update

PSN Downloads (including firmware) are not hosted on the same servers as PSN, so as not to affect gaming speeds.
Sony contract out the hosting of Store content downloads and Firmware updates to another company called Akamai
