The newer reviews have been good and the screen shots look great. I have been torn on what I am doing. It is available for download right now (in the US) for $40. The BD may not be available at some places until tomorrow, it is $60 and has a BT headset (which I already have) I was surprised the game only takes up a little under 1 gig for the DL version considering it has 25 maps and 6 vehicles. A word of warning to those who might be downloading it though. Only the PSN ID that downloaded the game can play it on the PS3. So if you and a sibling or whatever share games unless you both want to play under the others ID you should get the BD. I am the only one in my house who plays so I may just download it and save 20 bucks since I don't ever plan on taking the game somewhere else.
