The PSN title, Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty, weighs in at 2.3GB.
That's good use of those 15 bucks.
it'll also be available on disc, right?
Blu-ray release only in Europe.
Tempted to get Blu-Ray just for sake of Artwork and possibly instruction book. Depends how much more it costs for packaging like Warhawk, I guess.
but the download times are going to be horrendously painful
@TVC15: It's really no worse than downloading a couple of demos.
If it doesnt cost any more than I will get blu-ray version.
The download is pretty small. Thank goodness. Ratchet is always full of fun.
so how is this news? it just shows you that there is no limit for PSN download sizes, which means better games. Sony is following the footsteps of Steam.
2.3 GB not bad considering that some PS3 games take 4+ GB just for the install (oblivion, haze, MGS4, devil may cry to name a few). Hope to find a PSN card before this game comes out.
And here I thought M$ said that DD is the future..
Yeah I know, Microsoft is doing all this talk about Digital Downloads but Sony are the ones that are offering full versions of their games like GT5P and Warhawk for download on the PSN, but I don't see Microsoft offering Gears of War or Halo 3 for download on Xbox Live.
yeah whats up with that? Maybe its coming soon, seeing as they will let people rip games to the hard drive. just let us Download it already.
are you comparing a demo game and a only multiplayer game with two bigger retail games? with both story gameplay and multiplayer?
Yikes 2gb? Looks pretty good, but I'll need to get a new hard-drive.
can't take more sony...ohh well, i'll play and delete....or take out some demos/videos
buy a 320g harddrive man never have to delete ps3 stuff again
what? you're seriously considering to download the game, play it, finish it then delete?? over demos/videos?? dude, demos are free but not this! I guess you're truly a 'Game'killa! should just put it as 'Demo'killa instead! hmm...wait, that sounds pretty good...I might consider it for myself
Hey at least you can download, delete, download, delete your downloadables as many times as you need to with no penalties.
yeah i went up to 120 gigs last winter and im near full again, but its nice to not have to put a disc in for certain games if i want to play them...gt5p warhawk siren along with the mass of psn titles...
If I buy a bigger Harddrive for my PS3 do I just pop it in and it formats automatically or do I need some kinda of instruction set for somewhere?
this is to answer your question. wth did I agreed with that but whatever! if you want to upgrade the HDD, always make sure you back-up you old HDD using PS3's back-up utility! you will need an external FAT32 HDD for that! then you can change the HDD and the ps3 will do the formating for you! after that, you can restore your back-up data to your new HDD. just remember 1 thing! always back-up your data 1st before doing anything!
to bad when people with 40 gb run out...what are they to do...lame sony
lmao you mean lame MS, PS3 users can upgrade the HDD for cheap buddy. I get here 320GB for as low as €70. Sheet a game costs €69, Live costs €60 ;)
haha...lame you!! what are you doing here? trolling? because I can see you're doing great at it! you mentioned about 40GB, but at least they have 40GB! how about the 20GB? aren't you going to mention that also? you know what is lame? M$ mentioning all this DD thing but they gave you core and arcade 360! then they sell overpriced HDD to them! that's beyond LAME! it SUCKS!!
Its real lame that all hard drives have a limited amount of space and eventually run out. Its lame that Sony didn't use a state of the art Western Digital 5000 infinity drive that never runs out of space. Real f*****g shame. Damn you Sony for giving us a hard drive that doesn't have unlimited space --__--
Not only can you install a bigger non-proprietary hard drive, but I think you can also plug in an external hard drive! Theoretically, I think you can even save PSN content to a flash drive. I'm positive you can save media and game saves, but not sure about full games or demos...
pimping your console as a haven for digital distribution, but not including a hard drive standard with EVERY SKU, thus forcing those that want DD to buy the more expensive unit (negating the need for the "cheaper" HDD-less one in the first place), or buy the over-priced HDD peripheral.
...Your ignorance astounds me. Sony gives you a choice of upgrading your space, unlike a certain company who restricts you to the space you have on the console. So um...Sony is the smarter ones here.
M$ is smarter in terms of mind controlling their users this gen! faulty hardware, overpriced HDD, fee for online MP...and it works well so far!
On Topic: Really hope they release a disc version, no way I'm downloading this lol, I'm down to 19gb on my 60gb lol Off Topic: Someone should tell PS3fanboy.com that playstationdirect.net is plagiarizing their work cause who ever runs that site if you're reading this, that's not how you quote/cite sources for internet articles and what you're doing is plagiarism lol...
yea 2.3gb aint bad at all. especially when up grading your hard drive is really cheap ya know. ah... another quality title coming to the psn....
If a Blu-ray version of Rachet and Clank Quest for Booty will be released in Europe only, then I'm going to import it because it would save me some hard drive space... at this rate, I think that I'll probably finally upgrade my launch 60GB PS3's hard drive to a 250GB at least because I'm pretty sure that Resistance 2 will have a pretty big hard drive installation... probably 4GB-5GB and I don't want to even think how big Killzone 2's hard drive installation could be.
but you cant show off a pile of digital games. i don't know i just like to look at the stacks of games i have accumulated over the years
2.3gb. thats quite alot of booty. hopefully it's some what long of a game.
3-4 hours it says in the article.
ratchet and clank quest for booty sound like a gay porn flick lol.
hahaha I think so too, nonetheless the game will be really good. Like all R&C games.
You guys are all lucky... I only have 2.2GB left on HDD, 60GB PS3.
WHAT do you have on your HDD? i have a 60 gig also, and i still have about 30 gigs free, and that's WITH about 19 game and demo downloads (i need to delete a few), about 5-6 gigs of music, a bunch of trailers, game videos, music videos, and a bunch of photos (ie, wallpapers, etc). i haven't even done any "Spring Cleaning" on my HDD yet, deleting unnecessary stuff. i don't have a bunch of games installed either, just SCIV, MGS4, GTAIV, and probably other games with 4 or IV in the title that i can't think of at the moment. if i need space, the first things i delete are videos and music, as i can just transfer them to my fiance's external drive. i can't do the same with the PSN games and demos i have stored on the HDD. upgrading your HDD isn't expensive, so i'd recommend that if you really like this DD stuff. i prefer to have things on disc, so i may wait, but i love me some Ratchet, so i'm not sure. 2.3 gigs isn't as bad as 9gigs for Siren. that i'm DEFINITELY waiting for a disc version (or i'll just import the EU version).
I have the 80g and found that if you go into your save game files some games take up a ton of space. Oblivion takes up 5 gigs, GTA 4 we know is 4 gigs. I was suprised by Oblivion bc I don't remember having a long install. So just erase some of those old game files and you will be surprised how much space you will save.
a long install, or an install at all. it seems to just automagickally take up 5 gigs on your HDD. i have no idea how or why. in either case, since the "install" isn't very long, it's usually the one i delete first when i'm trying to get some space. Heavenly Sword takes up 2gig, and also doesn't have a long "install." that's the next one i usually delete, and so on, and so forth. and if it's a game that i haven't played in a few months, there's no reason to keep it installed on my HDD period, so that also gets the chop. people on the internet like to complain, even when the solution to their complaint isn't really that difficult. it could be a LOT worse, honestly. the fact that we're able to install certain PS3 games in order to improve performance at all is nice. hell, i would have KILLED to have been able to install Mass Effect on my 360 HDD. maybe that would have helped with the long and rampant texture pop in, loading times, and framerate issues. i'm generally always for improving the performance of games that i'm spending upwards of $60 on. with Quest for Booty only $15, and taking up only 2.4 gigs of space, i can't really complain. at least it's not Siren (9gigs!! i'll import the Blu Ray, thanks. i DO have my limits, after all).
Would prefer on BD but hopefully sony let you share this one because i have a buddy that owes me for the last 10 games that have come out on psn i think its his turn to buy one.... I KNOW YOUR READING THIS LOL
2.3 gigs of goodness!
i'm gettin some booty on aug. 21!
Anyone still whinning about HD space (trolls) you're really not understanding the benifits of PS3. At the very least, the absolute minimum, every serious gamer should have a 100GB in there. Thats plenty for all games related files and you most frequently used media. Then, if you're a big .avi horder, plug a 500GB external usb in which costs about as much as a Big Mac nowadays and there a more room then you'll ever need, as well as being a big fat memory card for going from PC to PS3. Now, do I have to explain how PS3 controllers save you hundreds of dollars on batteries a year?
I only just got a 360 but I bought the play and charge kit for the controller. Am I going to buy several hundred dollars in those batteries? And, yes, I am an original owner of 20gb machine and ... no I have not had to upgrade it yet. I don't play more than a couple games at a time, so old installs get deleted.
I LOve the series and can't wait to continue the story.
2.3 gigs... so much for the need for blueray. not to mention the 1.2 gigs for GT5p
2.3gb's for a 3-4 hours game. And no, GT5P is upwards of 6gb's. It would use more if you download the intro video, ending video, and other videos that was also included on the blu-ray version. cut the "so much for blu-ray" crap already.
There NO need for more space. Right? Think about that in every aspect of your life. More space is ALWAYS better, young one.
so? what's your point? you want them to put it on DVD instead? to make them cheaper at retail or something? btw, do you know that games on 360 which are on DVD9 are priced the same with PS3 games on BD? on topic, I think it's good for Sony to make it available on both BD and PSN so people will have more choice on how to purchase the game. plus, PS3 games are totally region free, making importing easier for those region without BD version
These attempts at trolling are getting more and more pathetic. At least with some of the uber trolls (both PS3 and 360) there is some humor. This is just sad. I'll give you a pity bubble. Keep at it sport. You'll get the hang of it.
2 gb is nothing to me. I have 320 gb hdd in my ps3 with well over 230 gb of space left over and plenty of games and content on it already. Buy the Samsung 320 guys. You have 298gb left after the formating. Can't beat that and Western Digital sure can't.
I bow before the enormity of your hard drive!! Here, have a cookie.
Does anyone have a good link to instructions on how to put current failes on my 60 gb ps3 to a new hard drive? In other words, can I update my ps3 hard drive without losing saved files? Any info would be great people.
Yes, make sure you have a fat 32 external drive, if you'd like I can link you to a full walk through I made on the offical Sony forums for conversion of your 60gb ps3 hdd. Anyways, back up your ps3 to an external drive. It takes everything and makes data files of them and then when you swap out drives just load it back onto the system. It's all there and it's all 1 2 and 3. Message me if you need any help, man.
... where someone says, "WHOA... that's a big file... we better put it on a disc instead..."
2.3GB isn't as big as some game data installs from disc based games.
Siren was over 9GB.
im on the hunt for booty aswell.. do i get my own game?
