    Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are making a big push into digital distribution, but if Grand Theft Auto V is any indication, Sony has some work to do to smooth out its process.

Perhaps that's to be expected, seeing as GTA V hit the $1 billion sales mark in just three days. But when the game weighs in at a hefty 18GB on Sony's PlayStation Store, it's easy to relate to the aggravation that accompanies a corrupted download. ...
