Then after the download, the dreaded install. I am a brand new PS3 owner (historically an XBOX 360 guy), and I'm appalled at the horrendous lack of customer service, GUI efficiency/flow, and overall poor quality of the PSN. I never had to go through this crazy installation process with ANY other game on the 360, which usually adds at least an extra 30% of the time it takes to download the stupid game/file.
I always heard how PS3s were so advanced and so much more than the 360, but after this terrible experience of pre-ordering my most anticipated game of the year only to find I have to wait until the end of the day, at least, to play it, it's probably the nail in the coffin for me on making up my mind about my PS3. I shouldn't have bought a PS3.
The least they could do is give us a $5 courtesy credit or something.
Good job Sony. smh
Pretty sure when i preordered this game it said it was going to be ready to download by the end of the 10th. Pre-order doesnt mean youll get it right away nor berfore anyone else. Aside from all the whoop skadoop, i heard it was a great game, cant wait!
