Dead Rising 3 Patch

I mentioned a while before about how the digital era of video games isn't quite here, and the main reason for that is because games have got to the stage where they are so graphically advanced, and so full of content that they take up masses of storage space.

The following news should simply prove my point further that digital downloads will not be able to push the disc format to extinction for at least another 5-10 years, at least where the console scene is concerned.

The news is that Dead Rising 3 has just received a huge 13GB download update, and to be honest, we're not quite sure why. Xbox Studio manager tweeted out "Wow, a 13GB DR3 update? Holy ... good thing I have 110mbps."

Unfortunately for those that live in more rural areas, you may have to wait a few hours, or a day, before your update completes.

One possible reason for this huge 13GB update is that it will patch in the four upcoming DLC packs for Dead Rising 3, which would mean that when a player buys a DLC pack, they'll simply be able to unlock it and play it straight away, instead of having to download it once it has been purchased.

This would seem to make sense, especially considering the first DLC pack will be released this week.

Operation Broken Eagle is a story expansion which adds on a subplot to the main game, and follows a different character instead of the main protagonist, as well as adding a few new items to play around with.
