THANK YOU. I Have the PSN version and everything is miles better in terms of storage and load times.

Me and my roommate both own a PS3. Would it work if I bought it and downloaded it, then login using my account on his PS3 and doing the same thing? Just wondering---cause I will probably get it if he and I can split the price (since he already has the disc version, he doesn't want to pay another $30, but loves the convenience of not having to put the disc in). Anyone know?

I think you can dload the same content up to 5 times free if I'm not mistaken! I don't know if it applies with this one though

jaysquared3247d ago

Wow so blu ray was needed this generation then huh?

El_Colombiano3247d ago

jaysquared, because the downloadable version out sold the disk version on first day sales...

Mc Fadge3247d ago

You can use your PS3 account on 5 systems. Repeat, 5 systems. Once it's used on 5 systems, it can't be used on more (unless you call Sony and explain why, and they'll revoke an account). So, all content from one PSN account can be downloaded to another system. BUT, you can only use a PSN account on 5 systems. Hope that helps <3

Can I borrow your crystal ball? I wanna know the lottery numbers.

"Wow so blu ray was needed this generation then huh?"

This game is multiplatform which means it has to adhere to the 360s crappy dual layer dvd storage....

Some of sonys exclusives take up a large amount of the blue rays capacity.

I believe MGSIV took up a full blue ray...

jaysquared3246d ago

No MGS IV took a dual layer blu ray disk which has the capacity of 50gb but the game itsel was only 32gb just because of the cut scenes. Gamplay in that game was only like 5 hours and the rest were cut scenes. But we all know Sony and its allies like to blow things up and make their files larger so that they can justify blu ray. There's no PS3 games that wouldn't fit in a single DVD other than MGS 4 just because of its awfully long cut scenes!

"The downloadable version is only 3.3 GB, including the add-on content"

Simply... wow! It's pretty awesome that Criterion can't squeeze that great of a game into that tiny space!

I'm still sad about the trophy situation :(

Homicide3247d ago

So blu-ray isn't as great as many put it out to be. Oh what a shame. Getting the PSN version.

gano3247d ago

Guess that's y making a multi title stop progression a bit.
A dvd9 game can be a psn title.

Theoneneo813247d ago (Edited 3247d ago )

at homcide of course the size is gonna be small remember this game came out for 360 wich has the dumb dvd9

Drekken3247d ago

There is no medium that will load faster than something installed completely on the HDD. Dont make it out to be a bluray problem.

ReBurn3247d ago

It still takes more than a minute to load, so installing completely to HDD doesn't really buy you much, either.

The 2x BR-Drive in all PS3s - Isn't

REbirth3247d ago (Edited 3247d ago )

just suicide yourself plz...prob u dont even got a ps3, cuz if u really wanted this game u already had buy it...

LeonSKennedy4Life3246d ago

Blu-ray is great.

Want to see MGS4 as a downloadable game?

360 Load time beats both PSN and Bluray :)

cellypower3247d ago

So u brought 3 copies of burnout?

PirateThom3247d ago

It might beat the Blu-ray version, but there's no way it beats a game loading directly from a hard drive.

CrazzyMan3247d ago (Edited 3247d ago )

on some forum i read, that x360 version loads in 20 sec.
is that true?

then loading times on ps3 - bad optimization..

EDIT: well, those people started laughing, when they read, that the ps3 version loads more then 1 min.

Dacapn3247d ago

on some forum i read, the x360 version bakes you a cupcake every time you turn it on.
is that true?
