Does anyone else experience this:
I've downloaded a few games (Smash Cars, Split Second Velocity & Sega Rally) from the Playstation Store and installed them to my internal hard drive. When playing these games off the hdd, they all seem to be quite glitchy...ie. the graphics, frame rate & motion seems quite jerky. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I'm actually thinking of purchasing Split Second Velocity on Blu-Ray Disc (since its cheap) to determine whether:
- its a problem with my hard drive,
- the games on the PSN are compressed???hence lower quality???
- its due to the 5400rpm hdd spinning a lot slower than Bluray.
- hdd with bad sectors slowing down the performance of my PS3
Also, my internal hdd is a WD 500GB unit...so maybe if I get a 7200rpm hdd or a different branded hdd, maybe the choppiness would reduce...hmm...not sure. Please also know that games like Need For Speed Hot Pursuit (on Bluray) run very smoothly.
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys

Thanks for the reply. I'm going to back-up the PS3 and put the original 120GB Toshiba hdd back in to see if that fixes the problem with the jerkiness...maybe my WD 500GB hdd is corrupted a little bit...not sure. At least if the problem still occurs with the original hdd I might get it checked out under warranty (jb hifi extended warranty).
Anyone else got any other ideas???

When you downloaded those games did you download them using a WIFI connection? If so their could of been momentary drop outs during the download to cause a corruption or a problem with the download maybe try using a different connection to download them either borrowing a friends or family members wifi or in turn using a wired connection?? Just an idea

Thanks mate, I will give that a try. I was always scared of doing this and losing both the game & my hard earned dough. How does my PS3 & the Playstation Store know that I have already downloaded the game when the game data has been deleted?
