Record of Agarest War is largest PSN game ever

If you managed to get into the MAG beta and thought thatwas a lot of downloading, Aksys' Record of Agarest War is going to blow your mind. The PSN title will weigh in "somewhere around 8 - 10 gigs," an Aksys employee posted on the game's forums. We suggest starting the download before you go to bed or -- considering the "100 hour" adventure isn't actually out yet -- taking the Delorean up to 88MPH. (Culture, PS3)

I agree. This game is huge!
It's too bad I don't have enough space left on my HDD to download this game though. I'm considering getting the 360 retail version. Anyone know why they aren't doing a retail release for the PS3 version of this game?

i read someway they already released the PS3 version, than went back and added more stuff and better graphics to the 360 version.

I believe its because the game doesn't have an english dub. I may be wrong though maybe someone else can clarify this.
Redempteur  +   2096d ago
hum ? the game was just retarded for either

- adding trophies ( pal version doesn't have them )
- wait for the 360 version ..

if it's to wait for an useless and shi**y english dub ...well i'm glad i'm not waiting seing the number of rpg this year on ps3 ...

My first question is, "is it a good game?" I'm currently heavily addicted to Dragon Age.
Redempteur  +   2095d ago
it's not a bad game ... that's the only answer you'll get ..

It's a early ps3 game that finally got translated..
It's also not a rpg like dragon edge or demon soul ..

but if you like disgaea or cross edge , there is a fair chance you'll get into it ... ( because there an insane amount of thing to do , to custom, to craft ..and characters to get [soul breed system])

There is nothing wrong with agarest beside the intense scrolling during the dialogs parts when there more than 2 people talking ..

a solid rpg at the minimum ..( i can't get into the details as i haven't finish it yet )

^Thanks. If it's not at full price say $20 or less. I might get it.

Its going to be close. Siren with all the episodes installed comes close to 10gb.

Is this Game out on the European PSN?
Redempteur  +   2096d ago
this game is out retail on EUR and JAP shores ...

PSN version is USA only ..
OpenGL  +   2096d ago
Siren: Blood Curse is 9130MB with all 12 episodes, and it is only available as a download in the U.S. That was a huge mistake in my opinion, as download only games on consoles don't sell as well as retail, and the size probably turned off some potential customers.

The game is already out in europe. Had the Collector's Edition nearly a month now.

i have it too

it's a fairly good game ..but many thing can be improved and have been improved in the sequel ( already out in japan )

The size is perfectly normal seing that it's a Normal PS3 Full game ..

Then why not...
upgrade to a bigger HDD?
jerethdagryphon  +   2096d ago
so spend the price of a game on a new hdd up it to 250gig problem solved
RH06  +   2096d ago
Are you talking about game updates, otherwise the PS3 updates don't take the amount of HDD you talking about!

I bought this last week, it sucks. Took it back for demon's souls.
ZombieAutopsy  +   2096d ago
10 GIGS!!! Thats more than a DvD can hold!!!
venomcarnage89  +   2096d ago
8-10 gigs
not bad, definitely understandable seeing as it was originally on disc. i wonder if its any good of a game, ill have to look it up, im glad my internet is fast ill have to time this game and see how long it takes, with estimates of 1 gig downloads taking about 5 min i guess this should be a 40-50 min DL. no so luckyfor a friend of mine though lol it takes him 3 hours for 1 gig

em what about GT Prologue 13 GB ?
Elwenil  +   2096d ago
I wonder what the Burnout Paradise bundle weighs in at also. It should be pretty hefty for the game and the expansion together.
OpenGL  +   2096d ago
Grand Turismo 5: Prologue was only around 2GB without the add-on content like intro videos, track videos, etc.
cjp4eva  +   2096d ago
I wont have a problem since I have a 640gb HD in my PS3 :D
adlt  +   2095d ago
