PS3 had a day one patch to enable some stuff also so it's nothing new and 300Mb is nothing really, I'm sure the launch day retail games would have the update on the disc so it's not like anyone would miss the update and if it's going too slow via PSn get it from the disc.
The only thing I'm concerned about is the quality of localization for games like Persona, if they even will continue to release them in the west. I don't want them to Yakuza-fy it by just giving us the original Japanese with English subtitles, i.e. minimal localisation effort, while also removing the "too Japanese" parts of the game.
The Yakuza games have the Japanese track with english subtitles because that's how the fans in the west wanted them to be it's nothing to do with being a minimal translation effort, the first Yakuza game had a english dub and it was shit fans hated it so they went with Japanese and english subs for the second game and fans loved it so it's been that way for all other games since.
I would hope that this doesn't somehow manifest itself in a similar issue for PSN downloads vs. disc purchases.
It wouldn't be a issue, the PSN version is just one big install on the drive in one location that it's running from, the Issue with the 360 if you install both discs is two installs with two locations on the drive trying to run at the same time causing a delay and the bad pop-in.
I've been tempted to get into the games since people keep talking about how Escape from Butcher Bay has some of the best hand to hand combat. Didn't they remake it and released it with Assault on Dark Athena? If so, which one should I get?
Personally I would Get dark Athena Two games for the price of one, and yes Butcher bay was updated for the dark Athena Release so your getting a better version of that game
@mattyftm: Many of the big named youtubers like Pewdiepie, Boogie2988 etc have side projects and contacts outside of Youtube they would have no problems doing something else should the Youtube thing end, but judging by the number of subs these have i doubt that would change any time soon not unless Youtube itself were to end.
