May be a put off for me. Especially considering how much space the PS3 updates already take up! Was looking forward to this game too. Ah well.

Whaa? It's not even 5 gigs... There are quite a few games that take up just as much or more. It's not like it's anything we haven't seen before in terms of size...

MLB 13: The Show is almost 4 times the digital size of Naruto on the PS3, if downloaded. This is nothing compared to the Game of the year edition of Uncharted 3 digital.

Info is from the US PlayStation Blog and the recent Blogcast from the PS blog.

It's like 42Gigs, the thing is, you need double a games file size in-order to install said game on the PS3. That's where the 87gigs thing comes from.

The real question is why do you have to install the game? You don't have to on the 360.

Zechs341723d ago

Because all 360's dont even come with enough storage to warrant mandatory installs, or even big map packs for that matter.

brich2331723d ago

Because otherwise load times will be alot slower. Thats why all ps3 games have to be installed. So you dont have 30 sec to 1 min load times.

Xbox 360 have 12x DVD read speed compared to 2x read speed of PS3's blu-ray drive.
Also, for 3rd party developers, installs are much easier and saves them development time than try to optimize the read speed.

All digital games need to be installed.
Some disk based ps3 games needs to be installed.
Some disk based games are optional install.
Some disk based games doesnt let u install anything.
Patches also need to be installed, if u choose to patch the game.

It just depends on the developers. Sony doesnt have strict mandatory rules.

It's 5 gigs gamershub calm down. Get rid of some of that stuff you don't use on your HDD and you're good to go.

SOD_Delta1723d ago

4.6 gigs isn't even that bad.

Good timing for this game since the anime's going to have fillers for this month. So I guess I'll be getting further along in the story from the game.
