Anyone own a ps3?
« on: December 03, 2011, 09:50:02 PM »
Hi guys do you find on karoo downloading updates for firmare and games seems to take quite a while compared to stuff on the xbox? I have been doing a bit of research on the psn forums and alot of people mention its to do with the servers being akasi or something like that which seems to be classed as a torrent site. Is there a way to change this?

Simple answer is no. however if enough people do complain about this to KC they may reclassify the traffic so as not to shape it as much.

it should just depends on the vpn provider. using a vpn will add extra latency though.

I have always noticed PS3 to be much slower at downloading patches and updates than the Xbox 360.

Im glad its not just me then, its kind of frustrating when a game needs patching and youve only got maybe 20mins before you have to go out and you can spend half that time dln patches. I think sony just want people to pay for playstation plus so your downloads happen during the night.

You may have a point there chris, I refuse to get PS Plus... Wouldn't get my monies worth whatsoever.

Paying, not paying makes no difference if you still have a crap ISP.

Yes d/l does take longer on ps3 than when i owned a 360, but after going thru 3 rlod i was clever enough to make the switch to ps3 and am glad as i am still on my 1st one :)

Putting that aside i doubt there would be anything Karoo would do to speed it up

Have you played the same game on both consoles? I was playing resistance 2 earlier and it seems sometimes people take loads to kill them even with the same weapon and kill you quick. Im still not sure im at best speed with everything set up i.e. dmz and stuff like that for the ps3.
