Do NOT purchase the digital copy!

The store page is a dirty liar. It says it's only 152 Mb, which right off the bat is a bit off. When you get done installing it, you go in game and are put in a loading screen where the game REALLY downloads. I don't know exactly how big this thing it, but it's huge. So unless you are willing to let your PS3 sit there for almost all day, or if you have an extremely fast download speed, then go for it. But only if you don't wanna drive out to the nearest game store and purchase it for $50. Which is preferable really since it's cheaper than online. Really depends on how much gas your car uses or if you even have a car.

 

So yeah. HUGE **bleep** download for some ungodly reason. Been downloading since 12:30 PM. It is now 7:18 PM and it's not even at %10. It is god awful. But then again my download speed isnt great. But it still way too big of a size.

 

EDIT: Okay nevermind. It's at %10.11 but that's not a lot of difference.

Are you sure you didn't look at the online/season pass? The game is around 25GB's.

Oh my god some people...
Dude, in the store page in te description, im lretty sure that there's a note at the end of the paragraph that says very clearly that te download is JUST FOR THE INSTALLER/DOWNLOADER hence the 152 mb shown.

I see is hard for some people to read though.

Well excuse me for thinking it would simply purchase the game like any other online purchase. Also, I don't think this game has much reason to be 25 GB. It doesn't make sense at all. I was suspicious as to why it was 152 Mb, but I figured it was because I previously owned the game and it was still installed to my console. I didn't read it because I am used to that stuff simply being a description of the game. SO EXCUSE ME Princess.

PS3 games are about 25GB's, because they use bluray discs. Better storage space.

You can play the game fine, when the download is at 70.00%, which is perfectly fine, I play the MP at 74.00%, and it works so fine for me, no difference between the full download from the 70% download, which is 19GB.

Errr. weren't you the one "bleeeping" about that lag issues? And that everything is crap? Now everything is fine?

Or are you playing the multiplayer while downloading - well if you do THAT: Facepalm.
