I want that Rising DLC while it's still free, but I won't be able to afford Rising until that promotion is over.

Can I download it now, and it'll be good when I do get the game?

Because I won't even be able to download it until Tuesday, when I visit my parents. Internet where I am is terrible. No use in trying to download anything while I'm here. I figured I'd ask away while I'm waiting.

You can buy it, and install it with no problem. It will go in Game Data.

Think about it... if you delete the game data and save data of any game, as far as the PS3 knows, you never owned it. You can still download the DLC for it, then the game install adds to the DLC data when you install the game again.

You can install it. It just makes a super small file in your game data folder. It'll work naturally if you buy the game later.
You're not the official anything of any board.
Stop it.
