Not Bricked, but 1G?
My satellite provider allows me 700M/day downloads without restriction, after that my download speed drops to xxxK (yes K). It would have been nice to have been warned the download was going to be/exceed 1G before I started. As it is I'll probably be spending 2 days downloading/installing this patch. That more than sucks. They really should give you an estimate and alternate was of getting the download. If warned and a way was provided, I could have done the download at work or a friends house burned a CD and installed that way, or USB whatever.
After all I went through to get the darn thing I was expecting more, and I'm a first time game console buyer, they are not doing much to impress me and encourage me to 'upgrade' when the next one comes out.
