I'm dumbfounded as to how you can't process the fact that we live in a digital world. We're a decade into the 21st century, having to download part of a game isn't a big deal anymore to most people.
So you are happy with paying $60 for half a game you can't play until you download multiple gigabytes on a day when thousands if not tens of thousands are trying to connect their Xbox to download the day one system patch and then the day one Forza patch.
We all know how launches go when things have an online component that is required.
I'm baffled that when you think about the amount of time they usually have to work on a racing sim like forza, and how long they've had to work with final xbox hardware, and the deadlines they would have to get something in for certification, that some people are bitching about having to download an update for a LAUNCH GAME to give them extra time to polish rather than simply cutting content and compromising the scope of the game.
Note how it is only the Sony die hards who actually care Boring.
Excuses, excuses. I think its pretty shocking at how blasé they are being about telling you they are shipping half the game on disk and the other half they are letting you download for free out of the goodness of their own hearts.
Also I've owned Xbox far longer than I've owned PS3, so yeah Sony die hard, try again.
But you're still getting 100% of the game just via different delivery methods.
I know I am just annoyed that I won't be able to play for 5+ hours when I get mine assuming the launch goes fine and the service doesn't degrade with everyone trying to download a system update then a massive Forza update.
The fact that people with better connections don't care and are just telling me to shut up because I am trolling is making me even more annoyed.
