Long loading times when downloading updates for LBP2 *Special Edition*

11 Replies 787 Views Created 23-12-2012

Ok I just bought LBP 2 Special Edition from gamestop and I have to download like 13 updates but when I do it takes forever to finish downloading and it keeps getting me errors. :smileysad:

My connection seems fine and my NAT Type is 2. Is there anyway I could fix this? Please reply!

Unfortunately, no.

Some of LBP2's updates are extremely large (Move Kit, Cross-Controller kit updates ect.) These updates are large, as they are adding major changes to the game-code. There are also very necessary game fixes that prevent major game-breaking bugs. The only thing to do, is start over and hope for the best.

Or contact your Internet Service Provider and see if your internet connection is indeed as good as you believe it is...

or with some updates that fix some errors only to give birth to new ones.

sadly lbp2 have become 'the half game is missing' from disc now days... it is time for a 'complete edition' with all the patches and dlc on disc...

Re: Long loading times when downloading updates for LBP2 *Special Edition*

Keep in mind that its dependent upon your internet service provider/your internet speed that determines how long the update takes to download... While it seems to be taking some people over an hour to download it only took me 10 minutes! When I downloaded LBPK when I was staying at a hotel it took over 7 hours but when I originally downloaded it from my home it only took an hour! Has nothing to do with the size of the update just you internet speed!

I do a bunch of work out of town so if its close enough that I drive then I'll bring my PS3 along... Better then working all day and then sitting in a hotel/motel in the evening watching tv!
