That day 1 patch is a bummer for those with only a 4 GB card. Time for an upgrade for some.

That's the beauty of Retail copies.

Downloading will be a betch, yes.

But, many people fail to understand that patches aren't "addons" to the already-existing data. They're "patches". They overwrite the error'd/outdated files.

So if you get a, lets say, 2gb game, and a patch comes out which is 3gb, your "new" game won't be 5gb, it'll probably be just over 2gb. Maybe like 2.2, 2.3. or even, still, 2.0, depending on what the patch does.

Um... why'd I get (a) disagree(s) for this...? I'm just stating something.

It's like saying, "The sky is blue", while relevant to the conversation, then getting down-voted for that...

If you read the article, you'll see that the patch is 1.4GB and I know that the game download size is 3081 MB (3GB) thanks to my review code.

The press release sent out stated that you'll need 4.6 GB free in order to play the digital version.

I've read that and understand that. I'm talking about post-installation.

You need the space for the DOWNLOAD. Post-installation, it'll be smaller, than the size of the patch + the size of the digital game.

The game is worth the price of an extra memory card.

Wedge19969d ago

Ouch, sucks that a simple patch is what kills it for the 4 gig mem card holders. So the patch itself is over 4 gigs?

ftwrthtx969d ago

It only kills the digital version. The patch is a little over a gig but the digital game download is over 3 gigs. If you only have a 4GB card, you'll have to buy the physical copy.

Best shooter on Vita, hope to see more like it in the coming years.

porkChop969d ago

I wouldn't mind Guerrilla Cambridge doing a proper Resistance for Vita. They could alternate the 2 franchises.

"Best shooter on any handheld ever"

I fixed it for you.

AbortMission969d ago

Man, I really need to upgrade to a 32 gig or maybe even the new 64 gig card. I want to buy this game digitally since I want to play it as soon as it releases.
