I have been playing PC games for 30 odd years and the latest industry culture of selling an empty box with no disk is a cheap, penny pinching culture by big business. I think it is rude to expect a customer to pay a premium price for a game, have an empty box posted to them and then have the additional cost and wait time to download the game. When I looked at the minimum system requirements via Mighty Ape's description of this game, there was nothing stating an internet connection is required. Admittedly I did miss the note on the top of the screen that “no disk is included” but this should also be printed in the system requirements. With a non broadband internet connection in rural Victoria, downloading a game this large is not an option. I have a small business background and if I did this to my clients I would be out of business. Not happy!
