Reason for eshop downloads constantly stopping?

#1LeanaunfurledPosted 10/11/2013 6:41:20 AM
Been happening for a few months, now, with both my regular and XL. Whenever I try to download something it'd stop after a few minutes and I'd have to manually make it start back up again. My Internet and PS3 are fine and they don't pop offline or anything, but what could it be?

I wonder the same thing. It happened when I downloaded LM, M&LDT, and MH3. I have to keep an eye on it, then when it stops I go through the redownload screens and fire it up again. I've found that pressing the download later button, and going to home screen and closing it works better.

Usually when I use download later, I go to the Home Screen and close the 3DS.

When I use download now, I just close the 3DS and come back after some time.

I wish there was a way you could estimate the download time like PSN does on PSP.

It may seem like the download doesn't make progress but wait.

Also, if you play online, do you get disconnections or server time-outs? It could occasionally happen when you download off of the eShop.

Yeah, I've downloaded a few things. Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing, Pokemon Y, and Sonic Lost World and Project Mirai demos, and it cut out with all of them. The 3DS game I play online most is Mario Kart and it rarely cut out at all, and I played online for lengthy periods of time sometimes. Just when downloading from the eshop, and it's driving me bonkers why.

You already downloaded Pokémon Y? How did you do that?

Japan region systems could get the game with English text about than twelve hours ago.

Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed.
No news now-

Oh cool, I still can't decide which one to get. It'll be available in a few hours also.
