Maybe this is the first step toward adding bigger games to the psn and like burnout we could soon see more ps3 complete titles. Lets also remember that a lot of games that are multiplatform fit perfectly well on a DVD and downloading 4 - 9 GB is no problem. Downloading can take a couple of hours or could be left over night to download, so what if it takes 12 hours, or 15 hours? Not a problem for most of us.
I feel your pain, I would like to see games even though they were big on the psn, specially games that are not easy to find anymore. Im also outside USA and I dont have amazon/ebay to order just whatever game I want, I depend completly on retailers and they most of the time only have the new games or the most popular games.
