PS3 patch 1.03 does not download

★★★★ Newbie

I've  just purchased Need For Speed MW. When I insert the disc  I am told an update has been detected that I need to install. The update is 1.03 and is approx 2000 MB in size. The estimated download time is over 900 minutes (15 hours!) The download never completes.

I have a fast broadband connection. Other games bought at the same time do not have these issues, their content downloads with no issues.How can I resolve this? I s that update size correct? Do I really need to leave my PS3 on for over 15 hours just downloadinh?
