this digital move will bring more profit for this studio

And how does that relate to Alan Wake? Oh wait...you're trolling...continue

'The original Alan Wake could have been an XBLA game too, Mäki reasoned, on the basis that without cut-scenes it would have fitted XBLA's 2GB filesize limit.'

But I liked the cutscenes in Alan Wake. Are they gone from the new XBLA title?

It was more a comment on how much hdd space these big downloadable games take. Both on PS3 and Xbox. Only a bit more relevant on the platform where a hdd isn't standard on all models...

So andron, what is your point? People without an hardrive don't need to buy the game or they can use their Walmart $10 8gb usb drive to store the download game to play if they wanted to. It is not like they don't have an option to upgrade.

How is hdd space not relevant for a downloadable title?

These high end DL titles often take a couple of gigs and end up taking much hdd space after a while. That's what I was getting at.

And of course they can upgrade to a hdd if they want, and there is where MS overpriced hdd's come into play...

Calm down man. You sounded angry. LOL. If you don't like the non-HDD arcade X360 unite, then don't buy it. No one is forcing you. It is still the lowest priced HD system on the market for the casual folks.

Can you stop trolling now.

Jake_the_Dog2570d ago

Yeah those hdd's are stupidly overpriced.

PetitPiPi2570d ago (Edited 2570d ago )

Andron. Ever hear of a 16g USB key?

The hdd's are way overpriced. I would never purchase a MS hdd. Straight robbery.

BadgerDeluxe2570d ago

Welcome to N4G, where people hit disagree because of ignorance or wanting to be "funny."

Zeal0t2570d ago

I am no fan of digital distribution :/ But i am glad to hear that it's just a spin off.

Convas2570d ago
