Yes. 40gb is random. 10-20gb is more realistic, but the point is I'd like the digital features like family sharing while being able to install it fast with disc (since I, unlike my family, paid for the game :-) ). And as I said in the same post: did anyone say that the family couldn't install from disc too? The game license is shared using the cloud (requires internet) and you could download from the cloud. However, I didn't see anyone specify that downloading was the ONLY option for the family members. Also, for me personally, every one I share with has 25/25 mbit/s or faster, so it would be a problem.
Yeah well, you and everyone you share with, aren't the rest of the world.
I have 5mbps internet, and no, 40gb game sizes isn't random. Games are large now since they need to be on BluRay discs, which hold up to 50GB. Max Payne 3 was closer to 20gb on consoles than it was to 10gb.
And this is only on PS3/Xbox. Newer games are going to be larger. I am not going to spend 2 days to download 1 game. Screw that.
I only have ONE ISP in my town. They only offer ADSL. And they only offer speeds "Up to 7Mbps".
