While Batman: Arkham Knight doesn’t release until next week on June 23, it appears some copies have made their way to gamers, with one user on Reddit posting a screenshot that reveals update 1.01 is 3.5GB. - PSLS
I assume that we still can't preload a patch if we buy a physical copy? This will take me hours to download... I hope I can play while it's updating and that it won't erase my progress. I'm off to check my HDD free space. If true, please join me in complaining to Sony so we can start downloading the patch as early as possible.
Yes, this, I have a really fast internet connection (200/20 mbit) and a file of this size is still gonna take me 3 to 4 hours with Sony's slow download servers, sigh. :( I'mm receiving it by post, on tuesday they are always late (around 5pm) so I'm lucky if I can play the same evening, it's silly.
Quite a big patch, "improved performance" is what I like to see, here's hoping it runs as well as it looks.
Wow my harddrive is giving it all she got captin!
this made me giggle more than it should have
Haha. You aren't the only one.
WTF is going on with devs these days. I mean its June. If you need(ed) more time then get more time. Publishers don't care im sure but a 3.5gb patch before launch is sad.
now, that's one reason in favor of waiting for the GOTY edition...
I will double dip
That takes the piss...! That means the final version that was sent for manufacturing wasn't ready. If it's one thing i hate this generation its buggy games with huge multi GB patches on day one...!
At least they can fix the game after it's release nowadays, compared to the day cartridges were released, as is, and stayed that way.
The problem with this though is that they are relying on it and the only ones that lose out are the customers. I played loads of the witcher 3 before the frame rate got fixed. I know i should have stopped playing but i have nothing going on right now and i is just sitting there. And even now the Witcher 3 has patches pending.
^Consumers aren't losing out. The only thing consumers are losing is patience, and not even rightfully so.
@JackStraw You really think that consumers who play an unfinished product aren't losing out? You really think that after years of waiting for a product it is completely cool that it doesn't work properly? if so you must be trolling.
I just upgraded my HDD to 2 TB. I'm in good shape.
Will finally have a PS4 when this game comes out since I am getting the LE system. I managed to buy a PS3 from a friend for $60,and sold it on eBay for $96 and then eBay gave me a coupon for $96 so I got PS+, TLOU, and Bloodborne for free. I rarely get so lucky and make such a profit. Hope Batman lives up to the hype, personally I enjoyed AA more than AC even though both were fantastic. The smaller scope just made it much more approachable for me. Luckily I got good Internet so downloading this should not be a problem
I preferred Asylum too. I almost always lean more towards more linear style, non open world experiences. City was great, no doubt, but especially for the remainder of this year with all of the amazing looking games slated for release I just won't have time to fully enjoy many open world games. I thoroughly enjoy a lot of them, and The Witcher 3 is flat out amazing, but goodness can they get to be a tad bit overwhelming at times.
Dang, less than a week left! Can't wait!
This would be the only thing to make me go digital this gen. I love physical copies, but if it means I can actually preload a game and play it when it's available, I'll go digital on more games. Just have to upgrade my hard drive further.
Does anyone know if Arkham Knight will support STEREOSCOPIC 3D on PS4? The last games in the series did for ps3 and 360, can't find a word about it online otherwise.
