That it will take all of 5 mins to download so isn't needed?

Hey, we are not offering a preload option.

If it's any consolation, though, the game is less than 1 GB in size so the download shouldn't be too bad relative to some.

Thanks Kid_Zomb, gotta say I love the developer feedback from you guys. Much appreciated! (Also nice to know its under 1GB instead of the 1,6GB the Steam page has it listed at atm)

games require HDD space not only to physicaly take up, but also to run with, the system requirements always quote a higher HDD space than the game actually is in size as its quoting the amount of space you will need to run the game, not just the amount you'll need to download the game

On the 360, it weighed in at just over 600 megs, I think your good, no worries. Especially since there isn't any other big releases today.
