    I have the download button but all it downloads is the Pre-order theme.

    .... just went back in no download link like everyone else :(

    Nothing here yet... strangely it no longer shows as "Purchased", but rather as "Free" :confused:

    I have the button but all it does is soft-crash my PS3 instead of downloading the damned game.

    I also got a download button with the unfortunate "crash-to-desktop" result.

    EDIT: Went back in a tried again. Success! Downloaded the bonus car pack first, and now I'm slowly getting my copy of GT6

    The whole process went smooth for me. Pre-ordered yesterday, pre-loaded, installed, applied patch after midnight, and played till morning. I hope you all get it sorted out.

    PSN phone support said that I COULD get a refund.. Then it started downloading.. I said it must suck to have to have a job where you have to try to defend an incompetent company all day long. She laughed.

    So I can download at about 4.2 MB a second and this is saying 177 minutes for a 15GB file 10 minutes after it started.

    Too bad Sony couldn't add more servers temporarily for this known hit on PSN and make it smoother for everyone. No they'd rather just let people have a ridiculously slow download speed.

    It'll probably by 4am before it is finished at this rate.. or even later. Sometimes it counts up.. to 178, 179 min., etc.

    Oh well. guess I'll be sleeping instead of playing GT6.​

    We have ignition! I'm getting between 2-4mb/s. Went ahead and turned off wifi on the phone and laptop just in case. I wish it showed remaining time during a background download.

    If you're on a 14.4k modem, you won't finish until late on the 7th. If you include the required patch, that puts you into Sunday.

    I hate to think it, but I don't think Sony made any accommodations for this DLC launch.

    Ok, so I think if you set it to download in background it picks up speed significantly.






    **EDIT**

    Yup, I am at about 4GB and 27% now a few min later..

    So do a background download.


    Now a few minutes later.........




    So yeah... not too bad now I guess.

    I think I need a drink. -and don't usually drink.

    About 11GB done after a hour. Hope my SSD makes the digital version worth it.
