bah, if the internet can handle Steam's method of distribution, I seriously doubt putting PS2 games on PSN would be that much worse

Not to mention Steam will buckle first before the Internet will; unless of course you're still using 56k for Internet access.

that's on a pc, though. you're talking consoles, a closed DRM-based system. look how long it takes to download a few updates for, say, LBP right now. 100 megs or so of updates...over a half an hour to download and install them. how long would it take for a full ps2 game?

I've got shitty internet and it only took me an hour and a halfish to download FFVIII off of PSN and that's 1.8 gigs right there

by comparison, Dead Space took me 5-6 hours for 7.8 gigs

I don't see a huge difference

I mean, hell, that's faster than you can torrent the games, unless you're part of a private tracker or something

this is a relatively major issue, particularly with ISPs throttling bandwidth. downloading files from PSN would interfere with most ISPs efforts to prevent illegal downloading on their networks.

the bigger issue is that the PS2 is still being sold in stores. we won't see PS3 compatibility until sony has stopped sucking that teat for at least two years.

Your first point is bullshit, by that logic, ALL downloads will interfere with ISP throttling. PSN and XBox live downloads aren't special, they are pretty much a single stream of serial data from a single source like http and ftp downloads, unlike a torrents which is multiple streams from multiple source. It doesn't take much for a routing algorithm to recognized the pattern in a download and start forwarding all related information down the same line with barely any evaluation or actual routing.

Your second point though is likely the only reason we won't see PS2 games anytime soon. People are still buying both PS2 consoles and games, and I doubt Sony wants to touch that cash cow.

How is the first one? Should I play it before the second one? If not for the story, but does the second one have so many game play improvements causing the first one to feel dated. Ya know what I mean?

the first one is worth playing first. it's relatively short, only maybe 8 hours, so you're not losing a lot of time playing through it first.

You can easily play the second one without knowing the backstory. But if you ever want to play through the first one second, you will be extrememly disappointed because U2 improved just THAT much. That's what I've heard anyway. I've only watched a playthrough of the first game and played the crap out of the demo. If you want, the U2 demo just went up on psn, and the first uncharted demo has been out for a while.

You don't have to play the first Uncharted to jump right into 2. I would play through it first though. Like someone said it will be impossible to play through 1 after 2. I made the mistake of playing Dragon Quest IV after V on the DS. It's the same situation, there's a lot of annoying stuff in the first game that really only sticks out after playing the much refined sequel.

So I was watching narutowire on my ps3 and it said that I ran out of memory. That doesn't make sense seeing as I still have 7 gigs of free space. I even deleted the Uncharted demo freeing up another 1200 megs and it still did the same thing. What exactly does this mean?

I'd wager that the browser and the site itself are taking up all of your RAM by themselves

I mean, the PS3 doesn't have a gigantic amount of RAM in the first place (256 MB according to wikipedia)

I finally picked up Valkyria Chronicles over the weekend in a Toys R Us of all places (it was their last copy).

Once I get settled into my new apartment, I'll sink my teeth into it.

Hope you'll have fun as much as I have, heck I even picked up the extra missions they put up as dlc afterwards. :lol:
