    They claim it'll take 11mins for DSL/Windows users. I'm guessing that means 8 hours.

    They should have done that long ago. Leave the reused models on PS2 and make upgraded stuff for PC/Xbos that can easily handle it. No reason that PC and newer systems should have to suffer in the stone age with PS2.

    8 Hours of Trynng to Connect; 2 Hours of Getting DL to 95% and then getting Disconected; 15 Minutes of Downloading update 100%, just enough time to make sure you miss every HNM.

    Windows file size updates are always bigger than PS2 updates, and typically the downloads are also a different size for people with/without CoP. This is really nothing new at last check <.<

    The last few updates the update files were available way before the update was over. And I haven't had any connection issues in the last few updates either, have other people? I considered that whole thing fixed >.>

    Maint. will be over around midnight for NAs.

    So what about you let the JPs coming back from work, and the EUs waking up, download everything, and you guys go to bed, and wait for next morning? Indeed no NAs will go to bed, and stay up till like 6am, just to make everyone lag like sh-t because they can't wait.
