So basically, the rest of the game then...

ZodTheRipper1639d ago

That must be a joke, if this is a sign of what's to come I'll never buy a game on Day1 again.

god help the people with limited bandwidth

It is mostly there to optimize the system. Give better performance at 1080p native resolution.

Kane221639d ago

im sorry that's far from a patch.

Ol_G1639d ago (Edited 1639d ago )

i still remember the bitching about Wii U's day one update i wonder what those people are going to say about this

Imagine this what if you wanna play this after 10 years and after booting the patch won't be available wich results in a buggy laggy game with missing gamemodes and probably some weapons and stuff i wonder if people would still yell i don't care i can download it in 10 min

Omnisonne1639d ago

Let alone people that might not have access to internet at all (times), pretty much stuck with a $60 broken game

XabiDaChosenOne1639d ago

There are games smaller than this patch LOL!

Father__Merrin1639d ago

thats not a patch its a piss take

lemoncake1639d ago (Edited 1639d ago )

Welcome to the digital age. Will take me about 10mins to download so no problem here. Disc are nothing more than DRM these days.

Kane221639d ago

what kind of internet do you have. to download a 10GB patch in 10mins.

Ace Killa 081639d ago

Google Fiber??? Oh how I wish I had something close to that.

I'm looking at this and thinking of 8 hours of download time for me. I bought a few games of steam and 3-5 GBs of game download took around 4 hours so that's my guesstimate.

But really how can a game company be satisfied with that idea? I buy the game and now have to wait a few more hours to start playing, plus add on the install time for the Xbox one which is ridiculously slow!!

Gezmoyassine1639d ago

I'm curious about that as well.

Ol_G1639d ago (Edited 1639d ago )

well fake internet it's just a way for him to say i don't care

i have a 120 mbps line btw and you can't download that fast not 10 min

LAWSON721639d ago (Edited 1639d ago )


I get an average around 80-110mbps and it would be downloaded in, at the most, 15 minutes. 10 minutes is definitely possible though.

Disagrees, lol like you guys know my internet speed better than myself. Yesterday I downloaded the 18GB Witcher 2 in 28 minutes

bumnut1639d ago

Im on Virgin Media 120 Meg, I could download this in around 12 - 15 mins.

ramiuk11639d ago

well im not him but i have 152mb

lemoncake1639d ago

152mb virgin media, great service if you can get it here in uk.

Looks like you are getting disagrees from people who have crap internet connections.

Ace Killa 081639d ago

Most people are unlucky - ME!

Got 15 Mbps for $45 a month. It's a monopoly in my town, i only have Time Warner Cable or ATT that only has 6 Mbps available. God I wish I lived in Austin TX.

bumnut1639d ago

Thats a rip off, I pay around £30 per month for 120 Mbps unlimited.

Im getting upgraded to 152 Mbps later this year for free.

Skate-AK1638d ago

I pay $70 for 15 Mbps with a 100gb download cap.

KillerPwned1639d ago (Edited 1639d ago )

The digital age is coming but its not here yet. Almost as if its in one of its early stages. A few people are ready for it but not all. As for discs being nothing more then DRM these days? What kind of sense is that suppose to make.

It is 1080p now, for those that care about resolutions though. I'm frankly fine with whatever res it is

corvusmd1639d ago

They only care if the can tout a difference, since it's the same, they are talking about a patch size... (and although we now the other versions have smaller patches, we don't know how much smaller).

Personally, this patch sounds worth it, it sounds like it does a lot of great things for the game...and I'm really looking forward to this game.
