I'm pretty sure they will release a statistic of how many Xbox Live users download the Lost and Damned in a certain amount of hours just so they can gloat.

Microsoft like releasing little stats every now and again tounge.gif .

Aye, there will probably be a release of how many downloads in the first few hours or first day or something; I just meant there is no permanent stat counter smile.gif

The official download card says 2 gigs.

I've been saying that it might be a tad less and Rockstar rounded it up but it's gotta be in the 2-gig ballpark. If it's not quite 2 gigs it's gonna be close.

Wow. Yeah sounds like it's going to take me a while. My wireless has been kind of spotty on my 360 so hopefully if it gets severed I can just resume.

Would this work?

I have a cousin who I am great friends with and he has a really good internet connection that is very fast. Could I download TL&D from his XBOX onto one of his gamertags and then recover the gamertag over Live onto my XBOX and play it that way?

Or you could get your cousin to download it then get him to recover you gamertag on his 360, then he goes back to his download history and starts the TLAD download again and cancels the download. You then recover your gamertag back on your console and go to download history and TLAD should be there.

You download it and go halves with your cousin icon14.gif .

ok I just got my test results back, how bad is it doctor?

download: 26 kb/s

upload: 27 kb/s

ISP: Verizon Internet Services

Server: Clifton, New Jersey

Ping: 229 ms

distance: ~50 mi


P.S

at seddo,

so basically he downloads it, recovers my tag, downloads it partially and then cancels it at let's just say at 70% and then I recover my tag and continue the download form there? would that work

I'm hoping they have updated their servers, Xbox Live is going to be fully loaded I guess..

But do you guys remember?

Dude, I hope you are joking with those results. If that is your actual download speed, and there is no lag at all on microsoft's servers, it will take you over a week to download.

You can just cancel at 1%, as long as your gamertag has that downlaod on then you're sorted, but when you recover your tag you'll start from 0%.

We don't know exactly, you got fast internet, but when A LOT of people are downloading it can drop down to another speed.

I hope we can take advantage of our internet connection, but don't count on it. wink.gif

Ouch. Approximate time for me is 2 hours 43 minutes, and that's not saying anything about a slower DL speed from my Xbox or because of heavy DL volume.

A friend of mine has a better connection and I'm considering loaning him my Xbox for tonight and seeing if he can DL it for me.. does anyone think this is a good course of action?

Well I'm going to (attempt to) stay up until 3, and if I don't I'll just set my alarm. I'll flip on my 360, set background downloads on, and start the download. Hopefully when I wake up at like 10-11, the Xbox will be off, having finished the download, and will be ready to play.

Why would you bother doing that? You'll still have to download all of it on your 360, and it will still cost 1600 MS points per profile, for a total of 3200.

Edit: Whoops, I just realized I had a post right up there. I meant to edit it.

Well, my plan was to start the download and go to sleep. That didn't happen. It was downloading so damn fast (Took only 10 minutes) that I decided to play. And before I knew it, it was 6 AM, and the sun was creeping up.
The grenade launcher is awesome. But for anybody that gets the DLC, go into the pause menu, and display, and turn off the noise effect. Pretty much, it makes everything look all static-y.
