The mandatory install size has been revealed for the Playstation 3 version of the upcoming multiplatform wrestling video game from THQ and Yuke’s, “WWE ’13.”
Wow what an exciting article. Does anyone really care about installs anymore? you can get a massive hard drive for 3 peanuts these days.
this game is awesome. been playing and feels like here comes the pain or somewhat to it.
Dont toy with me. Is it really that good? I've been putting off wrestling games because they are terrible this gen. But I really want a good wrestling game.
well not really fully. im like you holding off on wrestling games but really like this one brings back memories and i find it really fun overall.
Calm down there son. Nobody is saying this is sensational news. They are just conveying to us, the consumer, information about the game. I consider all Xbox 360 games to have a 5GB and higher mandatory install because I PERSONALLY will not play any game unless I've installed it to my hard drive. I don't mind installs as long as they make my gaming experience faster and quieter. In fact I wish all PS3 games had that feature because WOW can Uncharted 2 load! I'm using an OG phat so it gets really noisy playing UC2.
Last year my Fat PS3's fan was getting quite loud, I took it to bits vacuumed out all the dust, cleaned the processors and the plates that sit on them and put some nice new thermal paste on. Now when I play games like UC2, 3 and Killzone my PS3 and its almost completely silent and the games run a little better.
UC2 loads? I know it does when you start up the game, but otherwise there are zero load times once you start playing.
Ah jeez come on!! Like I can afford a double post!
Interesting to see people care about WWE games on N4G all of the sudden. Now that "Mandatory Install" is in an article title.
where can you get a 500gb hd for 3 peanuts. I would like to know the store
It was just a figure of speech, not sure why I got so many disagrees as this site is full of people saying they don't care about installs. But I cause a storm saying that no one cares about them.
yeah,i have, like, full bag of peanuts here.could use some hdd:P
So we know they are making the lead platform on the wrong console..
It's rediculous to have installs this size. Games like KZ3 have a very small install and look fantastic. Then you get games like this or Gran Turismo that seem to have way less going onscreen to compile that have huge installs. I think some devs just don't know how to optimize for the ps3 properly and the lazy way out is a big install.
Go learn how game data works, then you're allowed to bitch about it
Then give me a lesson if your so much better than I. Its a comment section meant for discussion, explain to me why I'm wrong, don't just come in here with some lame immmature comment.
I program games as a hobby and even make money off of it sometimes taking on custom projects. Anything more than 2GB of data is a joke. And I know data pretty well, wrote my own Delta RLE compressor for my NES game. Working on LZ-type compression in later ones after I get a couple projects done. I think I'm qualified to agree with stever. The studio is pushing less optimization in the data format/decompression, more "just get it done at any hatrdware/space cost for the user" which is pure laziness.
Though I don't know everything there is to know about data, I'm smart enough to know this. If the game fits on a single DVD disc like it does for the 360 and a game data for PS3 is almost half that, there's already something wrong.
Installs give a better experience, without them some games would take a lot more to load because of ps3's slow blu ray drive, also installs give better performance overall. Btw KZ3 doesn't look fantastic, it uses ugly ass color filters, in my opinion games like uncharted, that doesn't use a color filter, look amazing even if they don't have the color filter to hide the low res textures or lack of detail in certain parts.
So all the people that say it looks great are wrong huh? OK. Thanks for telling me what I like.
Will say this and will say this point blank. Do not waste your time or money on WWE '13 or '14 for that matter. THQ has already confirmed that they are working on '14 before '13 even launches on top of '15 which is supposed to be a next gen game for PS4/720.
That's one area the PS3 has failed miserably. Mandatory installs are so common place on that system and it sucks.
holy crap, those character models look terrible. look at the HHH attitude era model. hell, look at the booker t one as well. Also, lol at all of those DLC wrestlers. that is sure going to make me buy this day one.....not.
