Most game makers don't sell like this, as it costs next to nothing to print a CD, shove it in a jewel case and mark it up by a wide margin. This is where some of the profit comes from, up to half in some cases, hence why you don't often see (legal) downloadable versions of games.

There is a few other companies that do the direct download thing but I dont really like the looks of them. Direct2drive is the only legit one that I know of.

Did you know that its going to take atleast 30mins to download the full game depending on how fast your internet speed is and the server you are downloading from. Then you will still have to install the game aswell..

You are better off going to walmart or a store that carries games if you want it soon. You can always buy games online but why wait goto the closest store and get it now. :whistling:

T1 is fast in a manner about having multiple or many users on the same line without it slowing down too much vs cable or dsl. A T1 has the same download/upload speed which is really good but a Full t1 is typically 1.544 Mbps.

Its fast in that way but a 1.5Mbps connection will take awhile to download games especially full version games.

I would just go out and find the game at a local store.
