I don't complain very often and with a board full a trolls and Debby downers posting a topic could start a fire storm, but the downloading times are really slow. I've been downloading the NBA 2K13 demo for more than 3 hours. This is something I will only play once and its and it sucks that its taking forever. I really hope this problem is fixed soon. The Wii never had this problem. Or anything else for that matter.

Did you expect a good online experience from a Nintendo console?

I know, it's just awful. I thought it might have just been my Internet (DSL, it's really slow and we're changing it next month) but it still took hours to download the ZombiU Demo. The Internet browser worked pretty well though.
To err is human. To blame your computer for your mistakes is even more human.

Took about 20 minutes for me to download the ZombiU demo. It's about 1.6GB, meaning I was downloading at a rate of about 1.33MB/s. Not too bad, though I can download at least at 3MB/s on my PC.

Does it tell you the transfer rate? My ISP is capable if a steady 2-3 mb/s, so I'd like to see how fast my files are downloading.

I'm downloading ZombiU as well. Total time is just under 2 hours. I don't really know my download speed, but I have a basic broadband connection if that helps.

Unfortunately, it does not, but you can calculate it yourself, using the progress %, the total size, and the remaining time.

If at 28% (.28 out of 1), total size of 1.2GB (1200MB), and 10 minute remaining, just do this...

(1 - percent done) * (total size) / (time remaining in seconds)

(1 - .28) * 1200MB / (10min * (60s/1min)) = 1.44MB/sec

Downloaded NBA 2K13, 1 GB took about 30 minutes. Pretty much what my internet can do.

I think the download times are comparable to the playstation network. Sonic demo only took me around 20 minutes.

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
