    [quot]as Sony predicts games you might want to buy and pre-emptively downloads data to get you off to a flying start should you purchase.[/quote]

    I'd not heard that before. Sounds dangerous for unaware limited BB users. Would be nice to DL the game and only use discs for an initial check then run off HDD as if you'd bought it digitally, these could then be merged into a seamless-ish process whether you buy online or physical.

    I hate games that are only on one platform it looks like a cool game but with it being only ps3 I'm not getting it the download and play feature seems like a good idea its annoying having to wait for a game to download fully to play it.

    That's how I felt about Gran Turismo 5, I'll see how it plays first but there are a large number of games I either didn't finish or intended to buy once again when I buy a PS3 again.
