But game play!?

In '17 (I don't know if it is a bug or not) I have the impression that the players seem to bump into each other too often...

Yeah it’s basically a name update only... Stopped again after 17 tho... I‘m no hipster, really, but before all the hype, when it was a niche game I liked it best...

I didn't get it this year either but might pick it up in January if I find a cheap second hand one.

Ps4 downloads are depressingly slow sometimes. Putting in rest mode usually speeds it up a bit from experience but I'm not sure it works with disc-based games.

I got a PS4 as a Christmas present from my wife :) I did download a whole game I bought online but it was really fast in my experience, downloading right at the limits of my Internet connection speed.

I think it's more of a perception. If you stay waiting and looking at the progress bar it will seem slow ('a watched kettle never boils') but I worked out the speed with some very basic maths and it was downloading at 6MB/s with my 50Mbps download connection.

Perhaps... I'm certainly not an expert on internet connections. But it seems to me that downloading a 2GB file (for example) happens much quicker on my laptop than the PS4. Also, why would it be quicker in rest mode, in that case?

What game did you get?

Also, do you two have PSN usernames? :)

Is it wired or wireless? If it is wireless, how far is it from the WiFi router and is there a direct line of sight? How fast is your Internet connection? What was the file size of the download?

Probably WiFi signal strength if it is faster on your laptop. Re rest mode are you completely sure it's not perception?

My PSN username is BayernForum :D

Not completely sure no but I had found the suggestion when googling the problem and it seemed to make a difference. It downloads faster than the estimated time whereas if I leave it on and play some other game (without connecting to online servers) the initial estimated time is more or less accurate.

Will add you

If you're not playing online you can transfer him manually.

I don't care about manual, I want him for online :) Plus I hope he gets a small boost.
