    If i were to buy the retail game of Burnout Paradise and download the free updates for it

    My question is how do the updates work as they cant burn to the disc?

    The updates are installed into your hard drive.

    ok and i guess when you boot the disc, it detects the updates and runs them


    Edit: when i update would i have to update each version 1 by 1 or can i go straight to the final, i am asking this due to my ADSL bandwith limits

    No, with Burnout you download a lot of patches. There are about 8 to download. I can't remember how big each one is, it's a while since I've been on the game.

    Yes but you download them all in one package, not separately which is what I think he means.

    You DL ALL of the updates. Even DLC you have not purchased. In the future if you decide to get a paid DLC. All you would need to get is a 100KB unlock file

    Yes, it downloads them all in parts. Very, very irritating as it makes the download last a lot longer. As I said before, you download about 7 different parts, which consist of DLC and bug patches.
