291w ago - Gamers and journalists alike have complained about the slow download speeds on PSN. "I would say PSN is generally slower than other services, especially wireless," says Chris Morell, senior editor and PlayStation liaison at GamePro.

However, Sony's director of communications Patrick Seybold has responded by saying that he hasn't noticed this at all, and "I have both [a 360 and Wii] at home and downloads are comparable if not slightly quicker for PS3. Of course, that's just my experience."

To quote: Two weeks ago, it took a frustrating six hours to download WarGames from the PlayStation Store, all while my PC, Powerbook, 360, and Wii enjoyed fast, uninterrupted wireless transfers. This was slower than normal, but I typically suffer less-than-desirable wait times for PS3 demos and system updates as well. (I get 15 mbps down in my area courtesy of Comcast, by the way.)

"I would say PSN is generally slower than other services, especially wireless," says Chris Morell, senior editor and PlayStation liaison at GamePro.

Konami hands out two more MGS4 codes, one download

50°
294w ago - Here are some more Metal Gear Solid 4 codes for all of you who want "free" stuff. It's technically free because you don't have to exert any effort in getting them, but it's all content already on the disc, which means you already paid for it. Go figure.

Anyway, these items are not as great as last week's, but we're sure you'll enjoy them just the same.

- skynytktjp - Scanning Plug S.
- mgo2play - Subsistence Action iPod Music

Just like last week, there's another item for download in addition to the codes. "Metal Camo" is available which causes Life and Psyche gauges to decrease at half the normal rate.

Your Camo Index will also go down by 10 percent. You can grab all three items by accessing the "Extras" menu.
