HDD hogs: 10 PS3 games with a massive mandatory install

From the article, "The news that Grand Theft Auto V will be squatting on 8GB of my PS3′s hard drive due to a mandatory install stings. That’s a big chunk of memory! You folks with newer PS3s that have at least 160GB hard drives could consider that a mosquito bite, but those of us with HDDs under 80GB will feel that sting.

Yet, we should be used to this by now. If you have a PS3, you have to accept the inevitable mandatory install. It happens. It helps us build a bond. Besides, it isn’t like Grand Theft Auto V is the only game noshing on our hard drives."

and yet my 1tb hdd still has well over 600 gb remaining

I have an 80gb model and I've never had the need to upgrade the hdd. That is, until recently when I subscribed to PS+ for the first time.

Uncharted 3, requiring 40gb to download, then around an additional 40gb to install before you can delete the download. Haven't upgraded the hdd yet, but I'm sorely tempted.

i hate redownloading or installing stuff so i tend to keep it etc

Ps i really dont get the phantom dislikes

jesus, 40 gb? it's interesting how the next gen is all about digital downloading, BUT the internet is still the same. So it'd take me all day to download and play a launch day title. I don't see the benefit of that.

Storage space isnt an issue for me.. I put a 500GB HDD in my 60GB phat long ago & PS4 is around the corner.. I really dont care how much install space is taken up at this point

I recall MGS4 taking FOREVER back in the summer of 2008. I mean when you sit there watching Snake smoke cigs the whole time..... This went on after every chapter.

I just looked on my console to see if these file sizes were right.

MGS4 is 4880 ( still on there from 2008 )

Skyrim is 4368 + a 92mb update ( both from near release Dec 2011 )

lol... disagree, just fo..

Worst offender is Resistence 3, try to delete the game data, it takes like an hour
