LoL, it's like 60gigs.

PirateThom3550d ago

If it was 60GB, it wouldn't fit on the disc.

The basic game was 19.5GB, the spec II update was 1.2GB (plus 600MB for the new intro)...

Basically, even at a quarter of the file size you stated, it's still unfeasible to ask people to download it. Wish I could install the rest of the game though.

I think he was being sarcastic

Yi-Long3550d ago

... that isn't on this disc?

Or are they now done with the whole DLC thing and are they working on GT6?

d0nni33550d ago

agreed! one beefy download 60 gigs maybe not but still!

LMAO at the C3PO/Sheldon (big bang theory) type response from Pirate Thom. ;) :p

And for only $39.99 this game will hit 10 million sold easy.

BluEx6103550d ago

God damn it, I just bought GT5 for that price lol

Holeran3550d ago

If they were to have it on PSN it would take way longer to download 20+ gigs of data then to just jump in the car and go pick it up. With some peoples internet speed it would even be faster to get it shipped from Amazon lol.

Disc is better because you can sell it when you are bored. Doubt you'll get bored with this game though.

olLANDSHARKlo3550d ago

Not true, I haven't played my copy of GT5 for months. The online time trials missing from the game takes so much replay value from the game, it was great trying to beat your friends scores or see where you ranked amongst the world. Busy with the new sim racer forza 4.

ChiVoLok03550d ago

Fanboy I'm guessing? Forza is good but I would say about the same as GT in its own way. Anyways, my point is that disc is better.

^ Obvious troll is obvious!

Hicken3549d ago

Wow, you came back outta the woodworks just for that? Haven't seen you trolling GT articles in months?

Why aren't you playing all your 360 exclusives?

On topic: The XL addition would be useless for me, since I've downloaded pretty much everything already, but I wanna buy it for the sake of buying it. I can see why it's not gonna be available through PSN, though. It'd be way too big.
