    WTH is up with this POS?

    We got our daughter Little Big Planet 2 for Christmas. She had to open her gifts early. Anyways it has been downloading updates for over 2 fricken hours now. Is this normal? I am ready to go throw this in my driveway and run over it with my truck! We haven't even got to play the dang game yet. Is this normal?

    Yeah the game has had a lot of updates since it came out like 2 years ago.

    Since its been going for so long, that must mean your internet connection isn't the best.

    You can always cancel it and when it prompts you press O to NOT update and just play the game without any of the patches and do the update one day when you're out of the house and leave the PS3 on

    Let it finish if it is on the last update. It will start over if you cancel.

    If you ever go to download Dust 514 you can expect the same thing. Also GT5.

    I got LBP2 back in the summer from PS+ and it didn't take long at all to get all the updates (unless the new Vita controller update is huge).

    the way updates are handled on PS3 doesnt help, it makes you downlaod all patches seperaely then installs them one by one.

    It's better that way, if you have 6 patches and are 100MB each, it'll download and install the first, then if you cancel and go to update later, it'll only have 5 updates to download and install vs a 600MB file to download and install right there and then.

    Yup. They should all be incremental. Some developers do that on the PS3 but not all of them.

    I wouldn't cancel
    600MB is nothing thesedays takes about 3 minutes at most.

    It's quicker to install 1 large file than many smaller files

    Me too but for those on slower connection I think it's better as it is.

    Problem is that it came out a long time ago and has had lots of updates since.

    Best thing to do (if you're not bothered about playing online) is disable the internet connection in the PS3 settings then it will start without any patches. The 1GB patch for vita control has also come out recently so that may be slowing the process.

    Greatness Awaits

    Yeah nothing pisses me off more than getting into a P2P game with them. Well, unless they quit near the end, then I'm more pissed.

    I had just found this out last night with GT5 lol. Decided to dust it off after over a year of not playing it and forgot about updates so I sat there for over an hour while the updates were downloaded.

    It's not always the "cheapest". Sometimes crappy, horrendous Internet is the only thing available.

    Yup, there are a few games that take ridiculously long to install and update.

    LittleBigPlanet 2 is one of them.

    That is exactly it. When you live out in the middle of no-where you are limited in choices if you even have a choice. We have a middle of the line connection and I bet we pay more for it than all of yours fast connections. My personal opinion after all this is F the updates and just play the fricken game already. It took 7 hours to do the updates BTW. I think we will just start the system and do updates and not plan on playing till the next day or we will play without updates and update later.
