Just bought TJ and I noticed that PSN is stupidly slow. 5 minutes in and I'm at 1% on a 7mb connection.

That's because Tuesday afternoon/night is the busiest time in the entire week.

TJ finished downloading for me and I'm over half way done with StarHawk and that game is like 9gigs.

Anyone else totally maxed out on themes? Anyone else baffled as to why there's a limit of themes, but not a limit on games or anything else? It seems stupid that I have a massive HDD with plenty (okay, a little bit) of space left and yet I have to delete some of my older PS3 themes into the ether if I want to download any new ones.

Ran into that a long time ago because I downloaded and installed every single free theme that was available, so I did the long process of scrolling down and deleting as many of them as I could since I mostly just use dynamic themes now.

I didn't bother to count, but it had to be a good 150 or so. I know I had all of the individual MLB team themes that they released for MLB 09 and all sorts of free themes from before I joined PS+. You have to be obsessive about downloading every theme you can find to even hit the limit.

Edit: Nevermind, did a quick count of what I currently have installed and it's at 237 at the moment, so the limit is probably around 300 or something ridiculous like that.

Plug time. So I started a new video/article series on my site for games I won't/couldn't review and the first game is MotorStorm RC:



Here's the article that goes with it if you want to read about the game. The next video/article will be for MotorStorm Apocalypse, as I got the idea to do the two MotorStorm games that I never got around to covering.

And the cost drives me off the fence on One Piece and into the "Hell No" field. Can't see how Koei can cut corners on the release and still not pass some savings down to the customers, especially on a niche game. Oh well, maybe a sale later.

Do you really think all of the animals are DLC or something? The stuff you're mentioning are in the game, but you just have to unlock them by getting further in the survival and story modes.

The gist is to play as one of 50+ animals and survive as long as possible, which changes depending on the animal you're controlling since some play more like an action game and others are like a stealth game.

No. I didn't realize the dlc animals were just early unlocks. Thought they were more exclusive. I'm not bitching (waiting patiently as the game downloads as i bought out), just found it humorous that those were the for freebies.

They're not early unlocks. There are a few slots in the animal listings that are only available as DLC, but the vast majority of them are included with the game provided you do what you need to unlock them.

When did you start your download, what's your speed, and how are you connected?

I have a launch PS3 and I also noticed the WIFI chip is stupidly slow as well. At times the transfer speed dips as low as 2mb/s.

Thanks! I was confused because I saw it on the PSBlog first, and it seems like they do have it listed under it. Thank you for the clarification. :applause:

Fair enough. I have blinded myself to any leaks or info of this game. I knew i would buy it day 1 regardless...ps+ discount-$4 freebie dlc- anything.

I kiss your feet frisky for info you put here. My original point though was to poke fun at the $4 worth of dlc (small breed dogs and cats). I will happily take my ps+ dlc along with the free 3 costumes, along with the$$$ discount.

I'm drunk, just making peace and the info out for other members. Excellent value for the game: it was $60 overseas, now $15. $12 psn+ price plus $4 dlc makes it a $8 game: right?!?!

I know it's a Sony Japan first party game but i truly believe $8 is going to support the game makers paycheck

So in terms of FF 13-2 DLC, would the Lightning, Sazh, and Snow themed DLC story packs and the Lightning arena battle be considered the "essential" DLC for the game? I've heard the 3 other arena battles are useless since you have to be at the end game to be able to beat them and then you can't use them for anything else.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks yeah definitely stoked to see those on here. I still am not seeing how long they will be available on "post 1" so I'll just assume it's indefinite.
