Actual GB for GTA CTW??

Does anyone know how big the game Chinatown wars ACTUALLY is? In iTunes it says the game is 188 MB. But i had to delete at least 5 games to have enough room to sync it. It wasnt until i had over a full GB of memory did it sync to my iphone. My phone had 1.3 GB left and after finally syncing GTA i had only 200 MB remaining. That would put the game at closer to a whopping 800 MB. And i thought Driver was large at 400 MB. Did anyone else have this issue? Every other game i have ever sync'd was always close to what it was listed as except this game.

It's about 600 or so. It's a big one.

According to reports on the main game thread, the game takes up over 600 Mb when uncompressed. Not every game is compressed that much, but I'm sure you can appreciate how much better it is to download 188 Mb than 600+ Mb.

I used ifile to detail the size of the app folder once installed and it was 650MB. There has been a lot of talk in this subject, and I as well as others feel this should have been mentioned in the description. I threw out a lot of games for gta, only to delete it 2 weeks later.

Glad someone other than me is kinda annoyed at this. They definitely should have mentioned this.
