PS3 issues

I'm trying to download the Metal Gear Online update for my PS3, and the peer to peer one is woefully slow. IIRC, Plusnet throttle P2P traffic, but surely PS3 P2P is a legitimate use and should be treated like any other gaming?

Re: PS3 issues

It's not just you, it's painfully slow for a few of us.
Most seeing tiny speeds, like 20k/s or slower and that was one of my mates on a Be account synch'd at 20Mb..

Funnily enough I'm at work or at sleep during off peak hours, as are most. I can understand throttling P2P traffic for it;s usual use but if the PS3 is using P2P for downloading updates and I also believe some of the gaming aspects are P2P, then surely this sort of traffic is indentifiable and can be treated accordingly?

Re: PS3 issues

I have downloaded the MGS4 Beta, and when I launch it, it says that a new software update has been uploaded (V 1.01) and must be downloaded before I can play the game.

We would like to thank all players for their keen interest in taking part in the beta test.
However, we regret to inform you that due to extraordinary levels of traffic from all around the globe, we have been unable to run the service to the level we expected.
As a temporary measure, we will be suspending the European public beta test and restart it once we stabilize our server.
We would like to apologize for all inconveniences as well as confusion caused.
We would like to add that due to the above reasons, we will be making the following changes to the schedule:
1) Suspend beta test: As of 21/04/2008 08:00(CEST)
2) Restart date: TBA. We will be making another announcement on 22/04/2008 08:00(CEST)
3) Beta Test closure: This will now be on 11/05/2008 at 24:00(CEST) rather than 06/05/2008 at 24:00(CEST)

Re: PS3 issues

I've just given up and deleted the beta. I couldn't even get the 1.01 update downloaded. Its the Konami servers and P2P software. Its rubbish, and thankfully its nothing to do with plusnet! Roll on GTA 4!
