    I'll be getting this one. I've been wanting to get TSW for sometime, but my Mac (dual-booted for windows) would likely not run it well, so this is what I've been waiting for, plus it saves me having to sit at a desk! I've looked at the pre-order for this via an email I was sent, and it appears only to be available on download, I'm assuming it's never gonna be available on a disc? (I'm pretty old-school and like a game disc ;)).

    The file size seems very small too for a download, at 5GB?

    Pretty much on par with the PC version.

    Oh right, just seemed low...maybe because most other console games are a lot more? Usually about 20 or 30gb even installing from a disc?

    I have got this game now and first impressions are very good, however it seems a bit buggy, plus I was hoping for a lot more AI. Can anybody in the know advise whether this can be changed (through settings...I know it would take a lot of RAM or whatever to run a lot of stuff on screen at once?), or wither it's in the pipeline?

    I got Founders Edition on xbox one last week and I am quite impressed with it, looking forward to the DLC in July.

    I hope Dovetail reveal other DLC, would love to play the ECML and some of the London amd Southern Lines

    Dovetail won't reveal any further DLC until just before release, I think we can expect one more UK pack this year and hopefully it will be longer than the two we've had. On current form you can expect ECML York to Doncaster or Victoria to Gatwick, it's rather silly as TSW has the capacity for larger DLC than TS but they're releasing much shorter segments of line.

    It took 10 years for the TS series to have good coverage of the UKs railways, I expect a similar wait for TSW to be in the same position unfortunately.

    When it releases, you can upgrade your version of Founders Edition of TSW to the full game for £9.99 (on XBox One anyway) - gaining Rapid Transit and North East Corridor (as well as the already-owned Great Western Express). Not a bad price for the upgrade, really. July 24th I think is the release date.

    Wonder if it's cheaper to buy the original now then upgrade or just buy the new version when it's released?

    I think the RRP for the full edition is £39.99. I'm not sure of the price now but when I purchased it for XB1 it was £24.99 so with the £9.99 upgrade, that saves you a fiver on the full blown release (if it's still the same)
