I downloaded it from the PSN, it was from what I hear 26 GB. The game lets you start playing it though once it's half done from what I heard. I just downloaded the file from the PSN which was 150 mb. Then you start the game up and it went to a countdown screen which was about 4 hours. went to work and when I came back it was good to go.

I found it rather amusing that the game is 26 Gigs. up until about a year and a half ago my entire monthly internet allowance was 25 Gigs.

^ This brings up an interesting question with regards to next gen. I think PS4 , and Xbox one digital downloads will only be more ubiquitious and will take up more disk space compared to Ps3/Xbox360. For many people in the U.S. (and elsewhere like canada) there's going to be more and more consumer demand to have caps increased. it'll be interesting to see how they respond(companies and consumers)

it cool man I have a ton dl'ed games for psn. The only problem I've ever with them is when I didnt have internet for a while I wasnt able to play some.

And when I say for a while it was months. I thought my ps3 was toast cuz it stopped working so i parked it for like 4 months then one day I tried just to see whats up and its been working like new ever since...kinda weird.

Plus if you have the space on ur drive use it. you dont need to "save" it for other shit.

I can download a 20gb game on steam in under an hour but the same on PSN takes 4 times that. Hope this improves in the next gen Phone Post

I have the Slim 120 GB system, I have plenty of space because I only use it for saving games.

I think you get to start playing at 10% or something while it downloads the rest in background. I got told The Last of Us was the first digital release to exercise this feature. Phone Post 3.0

I've downloaded about 15-20 games(some of those demos.) As of now I have to delete a game to get a new one. I have a 250 gig ps3.

I was going to download uncharted 3 but holy crap it was 40 gigs! Guess it's time to get another hd for my PlayStation. Phone Post
