    That's actually larger than a single disc Xbox 360 game can be [​IMG]

    My question:

    WHY THE FUCK DON'T YOU JUST RELEASE IT AS A RETAIL GAME ON A BLURAY DISC?

    I mean seriously. Downloading 8GB isn't going to be quick, people. Unless you've got super speedy internet. And if the game sucks in the end, you just wasted a huge chunk of your hard drive and a long time of your life downloading this.

    Most people would have to leave the PS3 on all day for this or even longer.
    I agree with guild [​IMG]

    Agreed. Utterly ridiculous. No one has a blazing fast connection speed that's stable enough to support a download of that size

    When I'm downloading 10 demos on my PS3 I'm downloading a lot more. I just leave the downloads running in the background, and all of them are ready in no time. 10 GB is a lot, but for me it's not a big deal.

    Then again, my internet is pretty fast. They should also release this on BR for people who don't want to download it.

    I can't see everyone having to leave it on all day, 5-7 hours maybe, Burnout Paradise was 4GB and took me 3 hours to download, but i think it would of been a lot easier to release on a Blu-Ray disk.

    Quickie question for the Aussies out there.

    I know you have broadband limits per month (right?). Do downloads over a console (like Wii's VC/WiiWare, PSN, etc) affect this? Because downloading a 10GB thing would blow it out of the water.

    Seriously, I want to grab that sausage in the picture and slap the publishers of this game with it. What the fuck were you thinking?

    I live near Aus so i'll take this question. Well, Aus and NZ do have broadband limits (Aus having a lot more data than NZ) But there are unlimited usage plans starting to pop up. We just switched to one about a month ago but the downloading is capped like crazy. And ofcourse the Wiiware and PSN downloads affect your limits.

    Exactly what I was going to say, we in Belgium have very bad internet, it's not that slow (around 400 kb/s) but we can only download 30GB per month.
    Yes, 30GB.
    It just goes away so fast, I could never download a game like this for my (non-existent) PS3.
    Fucking ISP's, such a rip-off!

    This is going to take around 5 hours to download and look at Phantasy Star Portable 2 it's a nearly 1.5 GB PSN download and that's a lot for a PSP game. Good thing my PS3 is the 120 GB version.

    If this becomes the norm I think I am going to have to swap the HD in my 80gb to a 512gb drive.

    Glad you can back them up easily!

    Yeah, but that was a retail disc. This is download only. Or am I missing something?

    lol, what PSN has Killzone 2 available?

    Anyway, 10 gigabytes isn't a big deal if you've got patience, and you're not in Australia or Belgium.

    Don't know what game this is but I really want to see 3d Dot Heroes, THAT looks like a good game. I swear I saw a clip that looked like a 3d NES Zelda game.
