I downloaded Star Ocean Last Hope (57 mins ago), and I’m playing it.. just noticed there’s another notification that there’s 16 mins left on another download. Not sure about file size of the first download (not sure how to check) but the active download is 38/43GB with 15 mins left.

Is it downloading a duplicate? Or am I playing a part while the rest downloads?

New to PS Store.

Thanks for the info in advance
I see all the best concerts in NYC and then document setlists and take videos / photos. Check it out if you live music like I do: http://sonicawareness.net

Some games download to a point where you can play a bit while finishing in the background.

Yes you can, though it depends on the game really. Spider-man for example, you have to download the whole game to play it.
