    It seems less than half of the games in PS Store show their file size. How can I download/buy anything without knowing how much of my life I'd need to set aside to download the damn thing. (edit: the only way to find out is to start the download, then back out of PS store, view list of downloads, then cancel)

    I have another problem too. When I download certain demos, it shows up twice in my download queue. And the two have different filesizes which suggests they are not the same. The games that did this are Rollers of the Realm demo and Spelunky demo.

    In the description for Rollers of the Realm demo it says at least 4000KB required. So I thought maybe that was the file size. Nope! Its over 300 MB. So I canceled it, so the second Rollers of the Realm file started downloading and this time it was like over 400 MB. Really?! I wonder what the 4000KB was. Afterwards I noticed it appears on the descriptions for multiple games so I guess I was an idiot for thinking it was the filesize. It makes no sense they couldn't put the ACTUAL amount required.
