Downloading games takes a ridiculous amount of time.

It's bad when you take almost 15 minutes to download a game that's only a couple hundred MB. Nintendo should use faster servers to make the buying experience more convenient. Does no one agree or have similar frustrations?

No issues with my download speeds here.

Actually eshop is pretty fast compared to a certain other shop. seriously that other shop it takes like 12 hours to download anything over half a gig. when i was using my computer i could download something that big in less then an hour,and run parral games,run parrel downloads etc.

When i downloaded unchained blades (which is at least gig) it took my at most 10 minutes.

In my experience, Wii U and PS3 take way longer.

OP, was your downloading issue tonight? Because I just downloaded Gunman Clive and it was ridiculously slow. The sliding rack things (that drop the orbs in that measure download progress) just kept sliding by empty. My internet signal's full strength and in the past all my downloads have been pretty fast. Might just be a server issue tonight.

It is incredibly slow. I find I always get better speeds if I just do download later and close the 3DS. Try that out. It's not always a fix, but at least it never hangs up and forces me to restart.

Do download later and you'll be shocked how quickly it goes.

@SMASHKING84
I'm guessing your talking about psn. Either you are far from their servers or your speeds are crap. Takes me 30-40 minutes for 6 gb, took me under 2 hours to download Ni No Kuni which was close to 20 gb

My 3DS has far faster download speeds than my PSP or PS3. Oddly enough my Vita has pretty good download speeds as well.

Only big games. Downloading the FE demo took a couple minutes but downloading a Game Boy game takes just a few seconds.
