    I know that it's supposed to be released on the 14th but, did Ubi' give any info on the time that it will be available for download?

    Just checked their website and there's nothing mentioned.

    Due to the lack of a speedy response, I can only
    assume that you were able to DL it and can't even
    pry yourself away long enough to let us know....
    I'm dying here...

    Thanks for the update on the update. [​IMG] Are you able to go right to that mission?
    Do you need to finish the game first?

    Try it in the morning before work, then try it again after if it didn't work.

    Or you can be really geeky like me and try it at midnight tonight in hopes of an early release [​IMG]

    Ok it's 28MB and didn't take long at all. I don't have time to play it right now, but I've confirmed that you don't need to beat the game to play it - it appears on the 'Levels' list when you go to load a game.

    I gave it a whirl just to see how far I could get. I got somewhere past the first checkpoint and before the second. I've not finished the main game yet so i didn't feel the need to play through it now. It seems that level design wise, it's smarter and less cheap than some of the main game's missions were(if that makes any sense). Though you still can't shoot out many of the lights [​IMG] Graphically it's quite nice as well. All in all it looks like more of a good thing for Splinter Cell fans. It downloaded very quickly and installed properly on the first try(unlike the Mechassault content I downloaded last night). Looks like as an early birthday gift I'll have to let my older brother a.k.a. The Splinter Cell fanatic play through this one [​IMG]

    Not that it is something I would have to worry about but
    I wonder if this is transferable to other xboxs via the
    Memory cards..

    Howie,

    Since Rob says it is a 28 MB download, I think memory card transfers are out [​IMG] But you might be able to put your XBL account on a card and d/l the content to another Xbox if it has broadband access.

    Don't know about MB size but it is 1928 blocks according to Dave's post. Current memory cards only hold 500 don't they?

    My router is a computer running OpenBSD, and there's a program called ntop that has information such as how much each computer connected to the router has used - XBox used 28MB to download the content [​IMG]
