According to a package shot revealed on Amazon.com, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will require a 7.5 GB of space on your PS3 hard drive.
o...k.. Thanks for the heads up....
LOL... yeah, I know what you mean
7.5 gigs that are well spent! Cant wait to play TTT2!
Just saying, that's an insane install size.
So far, installs for Tekken and Street Fighter have been optional. We'll see. Overall, this game seems to be bigger and better than Tekken 6.
Not as big as Max Payne 3's Xbox 360 instal size (15.1GB)..
@Awesome_Gamer There are 'NO' mandatory installs for 360 games. All installs are optional. PS3 , on the other hand, often require mandatory installs. I really don't understand why the santa monica studio and Naughty Dog can make such great games without the need for these massive installs and no one else seems to be able to.
Good! Short loading times for everything!
So far it was always optional in every Tekken or Soul Calibur game.
7.5GB???? That's a lot. Good thing I got a 750GB HDD in my PS3. But to have these huge installs, I hope it will improve the game a lot as far as loading times go.
750 GB?!?!?! Damn man, i thought my 320GB HDD was more then enough. and that comes from a PSN+ user lol. what are you doing with that high amount of space? Movies?
I'm a PS+ member as well. I got tons of games. Lost count but close to 70 PSN/PS3 games that I downloaded plus I got about 60 PS1 classics. Something like that. Also, I never delete saved game files and installs in case I feel like playing older games. My PS3 hard disc copy collection is 289 as it stands and all those games need space on the HDD. I don't want to download patches for 20 minutes if someone comes over and want's to check out some of my games.
Me too. I've got 160 PSN games now and out of space on my 750GB.
I remember back in 2008 when MGS4 was discovered to have nearly a 5gb install. Many were shocked, but was okay with it since it was a AAA budget/production game. Now a days, it seems like lesser games have bigger installs, some even mandatory.
i know what you mean, but i wasn't too fussed about installation size for games i know i will like. i hated mgs4 because of the inbetween installations, wish i could have installed the whole thing at once. I do feel that installation for fighting games is a good idea since it speeds up the loading time, even though its only a few seconds faster. also people playing online will have the same load time which is a plus.
what brand are you using? o.o
My 1 terabyte HDD laughs at this 7.5 install.
I got a question does upgrading with 750 gb hard drive cause problems? Because ive been reading on newegg under customer reviews that the games stutter and become choppy
Not true. I noticed no problems so far and I have that 750GB HDD for almost two years.
tss... 7.5GB? Gran Turismo 5 size is more than 10GB. and i only have the 120GB PS3 version -,-
it's a good sign actually, loading times in Tekken 6 were horrible
True, but that's if you didn't do the optional installation, same thing Capcom did with SF4, I had to go to the options to do those installs cause as you said, the loading times were horrible, I don't mind doing the installation since it can only be done once!!!!
yeah, hated playing against people that didnt install. just makes me wait that little bit longer than normal
aaaah yes good point.
I have enough space on my 320 gig ps3 but i might have to get rid of some old things on my 160 gig.
For a fighting game? Is this for real?
wow.. Oh well, mine is 500GB so whatever.. as long as it makes loading faster the game isnt even that impressive graphically.. 7.5?
mines is 80GB but i have up to 20GB left.
Best selling fighting franchise of all time? How can they blatantly lie like that on the box?
Namco isn't lying on this one. Tekken has sold 41.4 million copies and Street Fighter is second with 33 million. Looks like all those releases didn't help none.
What he said^^ Also it's the most popular competitive fighting game in Japan over SF.
Dude, they're not lying. And pretty much what amaguli said.
that machinima sticker what the hell hope it's not going to be the 360 version
Why is this article in the Wii U section?
Also, more readership.
Something tells me the 7.5 install is might be the whole game.
I'm tired of not having any space on my PS3. :/ I have to delete mandatory installs all the time... Running with a 750 Gb right now. I need more.
I hear you on that! My 500gb is down to 37gb. Between psn+ the web browser ect, it's only a matter of time before my remaining gigabytes are gobbled up.
I'd install all my games if I could! UFC 3 could do with a bigger install option imo!!
If you have the option, always install the data, you will be saving the lifespan of your bluray laser that way. It's the most common thing to fail on a PS3. And then once you are finished its easy just to remove the games you no longer play. Although games like Battlefield can be a bitch because the amount of updates they have require you to be downloading them all day before you even start a game :p
The thing with optional full game installs on the 360 are done for loading times. On the ps3 the mandatory partial game installs are done so the game can run period or even close to the 360 non installed version. These are the facts as the ps3 games cant run without the install where on the 360 you put the disc in and play. Nothing more unless you want to go to the meuns and install it through microsoft but the devs dont require it like they do on 95 percent of ps3 games and that has been said to be because the bluray disc can only read at 2x where dvd9 on the 360 is three times faster. Next gen there will be faster drives and i gurantee sony will not have mandatory installs anymore.
I am just wondering don't get me wrong it is just irritating me ps3 has blue-ray right ?? why have 7.5 gb ? and not just throw in the blue-ray
