I've been waiting for a chance to buy CVX and unfortunately on my base 4GB Slim model, I can only fit the 1.83 GB version. That is, provided, that is the correct size...

According to this marketplace page, the game is 3.98GB.

http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-GB/Product/RESIDENT-EVIL-CODE-Veronica-X/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d80243430822

But the US Marketplace page lists it as 1.83GB:

http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/RESIDENT-EVIL-CODE-Veronica-X/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d80243430822

I also have images displaying what it looks like from my Xbox, on the download page:

The user on here named Plym brought this to my attention when I was detailing why I was confused about Code: Veronica X being within the size limitations of an Arcade game (2GB) yet it was given a 1000 points, this was to go along with the whole Metal Gear Solid collection being Arcade games rather than 1000 pointers or a combination like Orange Box.

For those of you who downloaded it from the US Marketplace, how much space does it take up on your memory unit? And those of you who downloaded it from wherever GB is...how much space does it take up for you?

Out of curiosity, I checked the size of RE4HD on the same marketplace Plym showed me...it's the same size as the US version. So...was there an error on both Xbox.com AND the Game Marketplace from the Xbox or is the US version really over 2GB (there's actually a 2.15 GB difference) smaller than other versions?

Edit: Doing a little searching revealed this thread, I'm not sure if the information is valid:

Apparently the UK version comes with language packs, and quoted from one of the users there..." Thats some size for bloody language packs :S". 2.15GB for different languages? That's BIGGER than the game itself, wtf? Again the guy here said he "thinks", so it might just be an educated opinion/observation/guess.

I am in the States and mine is at 1.9 GB. This version isn't missing anything though. I have the original CVX for the PS2 and the only difference is this is brighter colors and no discs.

You'd have to think that a language pack COULD include entire cutscenes in multiple different languages. That alone could justify the large amount of excess space.
