Downloads from the PS Store will be much faster on the PS4 compared to the PS3

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.

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!

Grown Folks Talk1528d ago

You dropping about $70+ a month for that speed, or do you live in an area where higher speeds are common, & prices are reasonable?

GoldPunch-TR1528d ago

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

Grown Folks Talk1527d ago

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.

Salooh1528d ago

We will get fiber too in few months :D . But i don't think it will be that fast. Maybe 30MB/s

GreenRanger1528d ago (Edited 1528d ago )

So, my 1kb connection will download games from PSN like it's a 2kb connection? Lightning fast downloads, here I come!

Salooh1528d ago (Edited 1528d ago )

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
