    I turned it on to get the star wars download, and I had to update. 20 minutes...4 percent? WTF? Granted, I haven't used it to play a game for 2 months or so...

    Why so long? I thought gaming was fun...

    Try downloading late at night, goes faster. But yeah those stupid system updates are annoying as hell.

    My updates never take that long either, but it's not a good idea to download the update right after they drop some kick ass stuff in the store like Ratchet and Clank and The Force Unleashed demo. Those are bandwidth suckers.

    I notice if you set it to DL in the background while you play a game, it slows down alot more.

    I've had that happen before...your connection to PSN is hosed. It only happens to me when downloading. I'll stay connected to PSN, but it completely locks up. Best thing to do is disconnect from PSN and sign back on, because it will take forever to actually come up with an error and sign you out on it's own.

    Mine takes days to update or download anything. The internets tell me it's the wireless is sometimes not optimal. I usually wait the day or so and download the update on my computer and use that.

    Bionic Commando and SF Alpha did download fairly quick the other day though.

    I downloaded Ratchet and Clank and the SW:TFU in less then 3 hours.
