    You need at least 3 times the size of the game ( here 876mb x 3, around 2.6gb) to install

    Or download the file from windowsphone.com through your PC , copy it to a SD card, restart phone, open store, click SD CARD option , you will see A8, install.

    No you cant, it installs directly to phone memory :( But an upcoming update (8.1) may solve that issue :)

    It worked for me. Try freeing up a bit more (say upto 3 or 3.2 gb) or try the SD card method.

    What we download is the setup file (876mb). After download it extracts 1.4GB of content. So 876+1.4 = 2.2GB. Setup file is deleted only after the installation completes. The extra 400mb maybe software restriction by the operating system.

    When i do SD card method i usually have around 2 GB and it works. Only way to know clearly is to try it yourself.

    1.4gb should be enough. Get setup file to your SD card and install on your phone. It won't check for 4 times space for game installation

    U need a phone with sd card slot,goto windowsphone.com from ur pc,find the game,and down in the left corner it ask u to dl and install manually,once downloaded,copy the file to ur phones sd card,restart phone to detect files and go to store and it should have sd card option

    I think it only needs 1.4gb of space

    I've seen a fair amount of people comment on here saying that the installing through SD Card method works. So if you have storage space issues on your device, definitely consider that mode of installation!

    you have to clear atleast 3.5 to 4 gb space on your phone because your phone requires atleast 2gb to work for ex: to surf the net ,etc
    so you have to clear 3.5gb to 4gb of your phone memory. I had the same problem when i had 2.89 gb space left so i cleared some memory and now asphalt 8 is working great.

    2.6 gb isnt enough because your phone needs 2gb free space to work properly and fast enough so you need to clear arond 3.5 to 4 gb empty space

    your phone takes atleast 3 hrs of time to recognise an app 1) wait or 2)try restarting 5-10 times

    On all of my devices A8 takes up 1.5GB of space, so it looks like you'll need more than that 1.2GB.
