Why would you want to download a Triple A exclusive anyway?

That seems like an arbitrary line to draw. Unless you're really into having a game on your shelf or getting collector's edition stuff, why should the pedigree of the game matter?

If I had to guess why it's two parts, it's probably a weird PS3 and/or PSN file size limitation. I seem to recall some Unix file systems (maybe ext3?) having a 16 GB file size limit if they're configured a certain way.

since =/= sense.

@rethla: No, but a world where 16 actually means 32 is too much to ask for in 2013. Sony should either say what the total amount of free space a person will need, or, they should join their competitors like Steam and Microsoft where the game installs as it downloads, instead of this nonsensical process they have.

Ugh man. It's cool that it can be downloaded, but I don't know if I can get behind a 22gb download. This is precisely the bottleneck our glorious no retail future has.

I'll pick it up on my way home from work tomorrow. The download wouldn't be finished until tomorrow anyway with the way PSN is.

It's still probably faster and definitely more convenient than driving to a retail store to pick up a game.

Really? How fast can you download a 22GB file? It takes me 15 minutes to drive to my closest game store.

Do we know that the PS3 will let you download a game you don't have enough room to install (especially if you had a 20 GB or 40 GB PS3, on which it might be impossible)? The sensible thing would be for it to warn/stop you, but I realize that's not a guarantee of anything :).

@GrantHeaslip: I blame myself for not looking into it outside of what was in the basic description on PSN, but yes, it would have been nice for them to outright put something that indicates that it isn't possible for you to download this game if you have a 40gb PS3. The other thing they could do is make it 3 separate downloads that you could download and then install one at a time. I asked them to refund me, but I feel like with my luck a refund is unlikely and I just have buying a new HDD in my future.

@LiquidPrince: If your store has it, which is the issue. It's sold out everywhere.

Takes me more than that to get to the nearest games store that may have this game. I definitely find it more convenient to download a game than going to a mall to buy one.

Sorry, missed your earlier comment in which you answered my question! I think there’s a pretty good chance they’ll refund you — it’s an honest mistake, and since since it’s DRMed, they can just revoke access to it.

Yeh same here. I guess they will release the 2nd file on friday but it sucks that you cant "preload" it. If anything let me preload the 22Gb file and release the 6Gb file on friday instead wtf Sony?

Jesus, everything about this game is weird in terms of its digital distribution.

I have no idea, maybe it will be as an game update when you try to start it?

#68 Posted by rethla (845 posts) -

Well now when the game is released im only getting "The game data has not been installed correctly. Press the PS button to close the game.".

No option do download the additional 16gb and no link sent to me anywhere from PSN. Also deleating the game and redownloading it just reinstalls the 6Gb file wich leads to the same error. Thanks Sony....
