inFAMOUS: Second Son’s Day One Patch Will Be About 350 Mb, “Well Worth the Time to Download it”

by on March 12, 2014 5:14 PM 47

Yesterday I had a chat with Sucker Punch Studio Head and Co-founder Brian Fleming, during an inFAMOUS: Second Son preview event in Rome, and I took the chance to ask him how much the day one patch of the game will weigh on our hard disks.

Fleming mentioned that he believes it’s about 350 Mb, and the studio “worked hard to keep it small.” He also added that we should really take our time to download it.

I highly, highly recommend people pick it up. The improvements and other things inside of it are well worth the time to download it.

It’s definitely nice to see that Sucker Punch thought about those of us that don’t have ultra-fast internet connections, or have to live with download limits (seriously, I don’t know how I’d survive with that), by making an effort to keep the patch small.

We’re only nine days away from the launch of inFAMOUS: Second Son, and the wait is starting to be really hard to bear for many, but I doubt a few minutes more to download 350 Mb of data are going to hurt us that much.

          • CervantesPR

            Dam lol hahahaha nice hahaha

      • socceman88

        The part that is funny is Brian trying to convince people to download a patch.
        1) most people download patches anyway so there is no need to try and convince people.
        2) I’m Pretty sure the ps4 automatically downloads the patch for you anyway, so agien no need to convince people.
        3) why bring up Titanfall?

        • DemonFenton

          I brought Titanfall up since she thought all day one patches are funny so why not lump that and many others into the mix. That’s why I brought that up.

          • socceman88

            “Lol trying to convince people to download a patch, funny”

            I didn’t see anything in her post about day one patches being funny, just that she thought him convincing people too download it is, she doesn’t even bring up the words “day one patch”.

          • DemonFenton

            It is a day one patch so if she thinks this patch is funny than all patches are funny. That’s why and yes she trolls many PlayStation articles.

          • socceman88

            Did you read my post?
            “convince people to download a patch”
            That’s the funny part, Nothing about day one patches.

          • DemonFenton

            Yes and the patch is automatic. Thing is that your defending her either your an xbox fan, a friend or her. So this is my final reply to you. Oh a question do you think patches are funny too. Think to ponder on that…

          • socceman88

            “patch is automatic” so why is he convincing people to get it. Also this is the fist time I’m on this site so I don’t know her, also I own a ps2,3,4 and vita and no xboxs, so I don’t think I would be a Xbox fan. Once agien the patch is not funny him asking people to get it even though it downloads automatically is funny.

          • DemonFenton

            Still nice for automatic if your lazy. Last gen it wasn’t you got answered an question and you said no you get signed off. Many trophies was won pre-patch. We’re cool and sorry about the Xbox Jab.

          • jacksjus

            That is assuming he wasn’t speaking to those that do not have Internet access. Maybe he is encouraging those that don’t to try and get this patch updated before you even play because the changes are important.

          • DemonFenton

            Sounds reasonable than.

          • jacksjus

            At least that’s how I took it, but leave it to Steph to go dumb with it.

    • static5125

      A lot of games have patches, so I don’t understand why you find this to be funny… -_-“

      • NeoTechni

        Cause its smaller than even vita patches

    • jacksjus

      Seems to me he has one helluva vesting interest in doing that.
      But hey what do I know.

    • http://www.ownag3.com/ Jed aka “Papa Doc”

      Blah! You troll more than anyone in these DS comments. It’s not just myself and Giuseppe that notice it, so I know I’m not alone. You need to learn how to bite your tongue.

    • Richard Attila

      I try to convince you to shut up,you muppets face!!!!

    • Ritsujun

      Enjoy your bigarse patches on the gameless bone, bitch.

    • Wargreymon559 .

      You know my sandwich isn;t gonna patch itself right??Get to it woman chop chop.

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      Yeah like how you needed to download a patch day one just to get the xbone to do anything, anymore stupid statements you’d like to make Steph?

    • Brandon Garvin

      Seriously? All I’ve seen you do here is troll the boards. You’re a certain kind of special.

  • Sexy Mcgee

    I’m really lucky that everything of PSN downloads at 8 megs a second for me.

    • chava

      How can you tell? Is there a way to know. Mine is really strange on my ps3 and vita. Ps3 sometimes downloads a gig in 1hr and sometimes less than 30 mins both times im the only one online.

      • Sexy Mcgee

        I just do the math. Downloads start at 8 megs, goes to 16, etc..

    • shinitaru

      How fast is your connection? I downloaded Strider the other day, just under 3 gigs, took less than 10 minutes. Was surprised how fast it was but I just changed my ISP from AT&T 6Mbps (on a good day) to Suddenlink 50Mbps (usually 46-47).

  • Jecht_Sin

    I can deal with 350MB, even with my crappy 3G Internet key with a 15GB/month quota. The 13GB patch of DR3 instead.. would have just killed me.

  • Nicholas Perry

    Imagine if you didn’t have internet and you can only buy the discs. Day one patches man.. hrnngg

    • Stranger On The Road

      That is me, at some point I even decided to only buy the GOTY/Platinum edition since they are pre-patched. While I can enable the internet on my phone and use that…. where I currently work/live it cost an arm and a leg to get over a 1GB internet bundle :-(

  • Matt Dickinson

    350mb! Shit I download that waiting for some YouTube ads to finish

    • Disapamok Kumaraya

      Best comment i heard for the day :)
      True though

  • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

    The system will do this automatically in the background so its kind of moot but no worries either way, cant wait for this game!

  • Ingólfur Sigurbjörnsson

    Why is this a big deal. I complete downloads like these in maybe 30 seconds
