Throttling of Europe's internet speed seems to be affecting performance

8 posts in this topic

For those who aren't in the know, earlier this week Sony announced that they would throttle Europe's internet speed on all Playstation platforms to decrease bandwidth usage. Sucks for me because I live in Europe. I do a decent amount of remote play on Vita, but that's now impossible because the stream is extremely choppy.

 

Since yesterday evening, I also noticed that this seems to be affecting Nioh 2's performance. Due to lower internet speeds, the game struggles to communicate other players' red and blue graves. When it finally manages to place all of the graves in the level, the game gets quite choppy for a second. Nothing crazy, but certainly distracting.

 

Can anyone else confirm this? If this is actually a common thing among players, it might be a good idea to play the game offline for the time being.

Yeah got disconnected multiple times with different games. But I do not really care. Better to share the internet in this crisis then to care about gaming. Stay safe people.

It's not just Sony, alot of internet service providers are throttling bandwidth too because of so many people working from home at once and people generally using the internet for longer periods more frequently. It makes sense why they would be doing this to be honest and I find it hard to complain considering why it's being done.

I knew something was up cause I’ve lost connection to the internet 2 times now on my PS4 and my phone loses internet sometimes too which usually never happens. Figured it was from the quarantines etc.

Exactly. Netflix and other companies were in talks with government agencies to ensure this, not just SONY.

It sucks, but is understandable like Crispy_Oglop mentioned.

Mine feels no different to me for some reason. I still have good download speeds.

I noticed it in the PS Store - it can load painfully slow now. I also got disconnected within Nioh 2 a couple of times, but apart from it, it's been stable. I can invoke revenants without major lags.

Joining as summoned through Torii gates gets much more frequent DCs
