  1. dat Vita patch download size, I'm just gonna assume it's that big because the actual patch just brings it past the storage limit and you have to redownload the game

    1. The 14GB update is probably just revisions and not added data, and yeah the people who have no more storage left probably have to delete the game first and then redownload everything…
