Shuhei Yoshida confirms on twitter.

Yoshida delivers the good news, yet again. PSN downloads on PS3 are so slow. Its like "yay look at all these free PS plus games.........damn, i have to download them all". Then, ,when it's done downloading, it installs and sometimes comes up with an error code and you have to do it all over again -_-. Faster downloads and playing while it installs are both a relief. What's with the disagrees? I was just stating my own experiences with PSN and its slow downloads. @Alexander Lucky you, it happened 3 times with Assassins Creed 3 for me, it happens a lot for me.....not sure why.
Greatness awaits! Faster downloads is fantastic news
This...This is what I have been waiting to hear!! @ Lukas Geez what's going on with your PS3? I may have had error codes maybe 1 time a year since the PS3's release. And that may be stretching it.
That is good news. Hell, just eliminating the install process after a title downloads is an improvement.
I hope this increases the Vita speeds too. I would actually be highly upset if it doesn't with as much as they are advertising how well the PS4 and Vita go together.
It sounds like if you get that many error codes you might have a defective hard drive and needed to replace it. Defective hard drives can often cause lost data and when installing data if it thinks it lost data along the way you get the error code. The downloads were super slow though. One thing I know a lot of people had issues with was when you tried putting money in your wallet you would get the "can not add funds to wallet). That was so annoying when I wanted to buy a title digitally.
So Adam Boyes spoke the truth at up at noon "We are adding more hamsters to the wheel"
I vote Amazon deal. If Amazon gets their own digital PS4 store, then they're probably fronting the bandwidth in return for a cut. This post is just speculative, of course.
I hope so, I have a 100 Mb connection and would love to be able to use every bit of download speed. Xbox live had the same issues last generation. I was never able to download over 1 MB a second on my connection. At least allow for 5 MB per second. Thats bytes, not bits.
I have 100Mbps fiber connection too. Thanks yosp!
You dropping about $70+ a month for that speed, or do you live in an area where higher speeds are common, & prices are reasonable?
I live in Turkey. I am paying 107 Turkish liras (52 dollars) per month. But not completly unlimited. After 200 GB monthly quota, internet connection speed is falls arround 4 mbps until the end of the month. I am sorry for my bad english by the way :D
I'm in Nebraska. We only have 2 companies in my area to choose from, so prices aren't great. My Cox broadband is 30Mbps. Next tier is 50+, but it's like $80 a month. No need to apologize for English either. I got it.
We will get fiber too in few months :D . But i don't think it will be that fast. Maybe 30MB/s
So, my 1kb connection will download games from PSN like it's a 2kb connection? Lightning fast downloads, here I come!
It's not funny if it's true . My house is like that XD . It's like torture ! T_T 7 people on a 1mb/s speed and when the limit is finished it reach 2kb/s XP
I got 5 mb dsl. I don't think there's any hope for my download speed.
My download speeds never even got to 3 Mbps. I run on 15 Mbps max at times yet my download never would take advantage of those speeds. Glad to see ps4 capitalizes on that.
Great news. DLs on the PS3 was a pain in the you know what. Will it install while it DL?
i hope its faster!
I crack up when people cheer when a company representative gives good press about their systems. It's his job to say "yes, downloads are faster." What's he gonna say? "No, downloads are still slow." Yeah, I don't think so.
