    I love that it will playable halfway through the download. It killed me when downloading Sleeping Dogs. I wanted to play it that night but ended up having to wait until the next morning

    • What killed me about downloading Sleeping Dogs was that I purchased and downloaded it two weeks prior to it becoming free to PS+ subscribers. I’m a PS+ subscriber..

        That’ll learn ya. I’ve stopped purchasing off the Playstation Store for that very reason.

    I can’t wait for this game! There’s something about their approach to the infected that gets me in survival mode. Looks nice and visceral as well.

    Here’s hoping that they deliver the same quality as Uncharted 2, didn’t care for 1 or 3 much.
