Hi, this is my first post on the xbox forums so be nice!
My question is that if I have installed a game to my xbox hard drive (via CD) and I later purchase it from the Marketplace will the download be instant?
I ask because I have Oblivion installed (ages ago) and traded it in. I've wanted to get it again recently and wondered if I could just purchase it from the Marketplace, and seeing as all the game files are on the hard drive (from previous installation) would the download do all 6 gigs of game files again, or recognise that the files are already there and let me play?
My internet is extremely slow (0.7mbps) and to download 1.5 gigs take me a good 4-5 hours meaning if I download the entire game from the marketplace it would probably go on for the best part of 20 hours, that and we have a monthly download limit of 10gb which is used up by other people in the house often.
Thanks for reading and if you can provide a definite answer then it would be very helpful.
