In North America, the PlayStation 3 version of Record of Agarest War will only be available as a download and it’s one big download.
An Aksys forum administrator gave a file size estimate.
All right guys, I figured you might like to hear a reasonably official word on this, so here it is:
I asked around, and it looks like the final size is going to be somewhere around 8-10 gigs. It sounds like a lot, I know, but I’ve been downloading the debug ROMs at home to take the load off our office internet, and they only take a few hours–I usually start them when I leave for work, and they’re done by lunch. My internet connection is nothing special either–about 500 kb/s on a good day.
So there you have it. 8-10 gigs. We should a more solid number closer to release.
With all of the new PlayStation 3 models 8-10GB isn’t that bad. Downloading it, depending on the speed of your internet connection, might be. Before you run off and import a physical copy from Ghostlight, please note Aksys version includes extra content from the Xbox 360 version Record of Agarest War: Re-Appearance.
