I wouldn't mind a week pre-load i suppose. On the other hand, having the game in the hard drive and not able to play it will be torture.Rock* has given GTAV a 1 week pre-load. I'm expecting the same on TW3. One week is a decent duration for those who have low bandwidth.
Holy crap. I remember just a couple months ago when a 53 euros would have been like 78 USD.How come some people have such 'slow' internet? I know internet might not be fast and readily available everywhere but it's 2015, these days everything goes through internet how can they then limit it like that? I know in America it's very expensive (because the providers are d*cks) but I don't really know about other countries...
I get 120Mbps, with that I get normal tv for 53 euro's. Which is about 58 U.S. dollars at the moment, I wonder what do you get in Amerika or other countries for that? (roughly the same amount or money, or the same speed for how much money?)
I don't even know of my ISP has a 'package' or even internet speed for 100 euro. that's really expensive IMHO.Major City American Internet Speeds: $99 USD. Advertised 150/50mbps:
I guess you're right. There can be a lot of different reasons for it. Though it's really interesting to see what Google Fiber will achieve, I have heard some good things about it, but I don't know the pricing or specs on that. And it's only available in a few area's, but it's still early days.Edit: Why some people have slow internet speeds: Oceans and lack of Fiber backbones, as well as widely varying infrastructure between different countries. Some governments highly regulate internet making ISPs a business not worth really pursuing in those areas, some areas are too dangerous or too poor to operate in, etc. There are quite a number of reasons, really.
The majority of packages in the City are closer to the $50 mark and range from 20-50Mbps down. Internet is really the only utility that I care about and one of my few indulgences so I always find the fastest internet where I live even if it's a bit expensive.I don't even know of my ISP has a 'package' or even internet speed for 100 euro. that's really expensive IMHO.
Yeah, I guess thats a important factor aswell.When my livelihood revolves around computers, I find it easier to justify the extra cost to myself.
Yeah, it might be a bit confusing

P2P works to a certain extent for me, but is better than other methods only if there were a lot of users in the same country, which may or may not be the case. Anything that allows multiple connections by one method or another helps. P2P effectively does that, as do a lot of FTP and Download Management tools. The only problem with that though is that I assume it puts a bigger load on the GOG servers (which is another reason why P2P is better, I guess).To increase speed for users with low "international" bandwidth, GOG\Steam clients could use p2p protocol (sorry, I don't know if they do it already).
For example, Battle.net client uses p2p. In my country speed gain from it is like 2x - 3x from "international" downloads.
