    Ive been trying to clear up space on my 8GB HTC 8X and it's already hard as it is with 2GB of others reduced to 1.69, and I have about 1.56 GB of free space. The game says it requires 512 MB only, and I know this isn't the actual size required but im getting very frustrated not knowing the limit... I want to try it out because it looks so damn beautiful. Thanks!

    Have you tried installing from the Web Marketplace? Sometimes it can reduce the free space requirements

    If I recall correctly the magic number when the game was just shy of an 800mb download was 5.4gb. If the unpacking space is directly proportionate to the download size, you'll probably need about 3.4gb of free space in order to get it going. If you're using a device with expandable storage move all your media to SD for starters. You could also delete some apps and redownload them later.

    I tried this and it didn't work :(

    Wow, I can't get that much free space out unless the others completely disappears :( I tried deleting my apps but I couldn't delete them all cuz they have things I still need in them and will be lost if I delete them, and no luck.. Got to 2.3 GB i think and no luck. Very disappointed that I can't try this game :/ And my 8X sadly has no expandable memory :(

    I second kevin2577's suggestion, installing via web at windowsphone.com usually works to get around the space issues

    I was able to install Asphalt 7 with 2 GB space, via the website install method. Make sure your phone is a) connected to internet b) screen not locked c) the Xbox app is running on the phone screen

    I just realized that you all have SD cards and can do this using the SD card method.... How can you do this without an SD card? I have searched all over. and even freed up space

    I did not do any transfer.

    1. Went to windowsphone.com
    2. Reached asphalt 7 page.
    3. Clicked install and the game showed up in my game app on the phone.
    4. That's it. Connected to Wi-Fi and voila! Download initiated

    That's really helpful.

    Similar case here, I was able to get Halo: Spartan Asslt. (v1.1) on my Lumia 720 (8gb) useing the web install method. Be sure to follow the a)b)c) method above.
    (The xap for Halo is only 716mb but install from sd card won't work with 1.6gb of free space on phone; download from Store on phone failed as well.)
