"Today is the day I've been waiting for as White Knight Chronicles International Edition finally arrived in front of my doorstep. One of the first things I noticed as soon I plugged in the game is that it requires a HDD install..." - Just Push Start
OMG, what are we to do? Sony should have included a HDD in all PS3's... HMMM.
indeed and of course it will require it considering it comes with all the Japanese DLC which was made to run off HDD anyways. Not to mention town building will run much smoother off a HDD rather than disc.
So the japanese version doesn't have HDD install?' I guess they just dumped the install files for all the DLC and patch on it so you won't have to download it. THat's not too bad. Can't wait for this to arrive.. why the hell isn't it here yet!? @below ah then why is this news? xD If the jap version had an install, ofc the US version does too. (well I didn't know that so i guess it is a valid article =p )
Yeah, not to mention that the Japanese version has an install, too. Wouldn't have made any sense for the NA version not to have one.
@ Pennywise, Great comment. I was going to write an article about this today myself since I just got my copy today as well. However I decided against it because at this point HDD installs are common, especially for large games with open worlds. The game barely ever loads thanks to the HDD install, if anything PS3 owners should be happy about the installs.
It's stuff like this that REALLY confuses me about N4G. I own the Japanese version, and it most definitely has an install, and therefore it only makes sense that the U.S. version would have one, too. It's not like they're changing the entire game from the ground up so that it can now run without an installation. How the hell did I get a disagree for saying that before? An entirely, 100% factual comment and I get disagrees. Happens a lot around here, unfortunately.
my 99$ 500 gb hard drive will be a bit more full ;(
Hmm, five minutes huh. Enough time to use the bathroom, and get snacks with a few minutes to spare for flipping through channels.
Well thats enough time to thank God that dreams do come true and thank him for the awesome game that he has sent to us.. or just play Numa Numa and do the Numa Numa dance O_O http://www.youtube.com/watc... then take a break with bud-light.. and BAM there it is.
No, just no to the numa numa dance, I have to much respect for myself even if no one is watching lol. Could take that time to get pizza though what's a game without pizza!  thought it was the video with a kid flailing around, I may watch a YTP or something instead though.
lol.. hmm pizza does sound good.. o_o But pizza's never good w/o breadsticks/cheesesticks lol Oh and yes, I would never do the kid's Numa Numa either o_O But it's hella fun to watch how much a man can entertain himself lol
not a big deal, but that's a shame, i was almost sure the installs were almost over, haven't installed a game in a long time
I pretty much expect it from playing so many PC games. Not that I mind it gives me time to prepare for the ensuing gaming marathon.
Meh my 500GB HDD is crying out for installations & contents i got like 350GB HDD free space, can't complain over here. :)
I got about 370Gb free left on mine. Day One Purchase for me.
no problem here..
Install or not, I'll be enjoying this game along with SO4,FF13,and Heavy Rain.(still need to find some money for Yakuza 3 and Resonance of Fate). Early holiday for gamers :)
2.28? That's not bad... but still 2.28GB more than it should have been. Just one more reason for me to priorize END OF ETERNITY over WKC. Granted, I'm still getting WKC on launch day... but.....
WKC = Story + online.. instant WIN! :D Only reason why i dropped everything off the calender in Feb and why FF13 will have to wait till i get bored of WKC
Games with no online just aren't worth getting for full price. I can't justify it. A game that takes less than 30 hours to beat should be less than $40. Online is the future of RPGs Demon's Souls was just the start.
HUm ?? so what ??i have 140gb left out of my 250gb PS3 so it's not a problem waiting for install ? not a problem ...as long as when i play everything run flawlessly ..
oh no what will i do!
*looks at 320gb HDD* No problem with an install for me.
My 320GB is looking at that install like lunch MMMMMMMM mother may i have another
Have these guys ever played a PS3 before?
They mentioned that some PS3 games have install and it's for the better. So yes, they've played PS3 games before.
Best RPG of 2010.
my 250GB HD can take it. no problem here either
Not a big deal. As long as it improves the different aspects of the game I don't see why not
is it true you have to play some, not alot (and its not hard) of the SP before you can unlock MP ? MP is what I am really looking forward to
I think its one chapter then you go to MP
Been interested in it, but so many to play, so little time.
I have 250gb. sigh...bring it on.
It makes perfect sense. Even though the original Japanese DLC was localized and is included ON-DISC, the programming would still require it to be installed and read from the HDD. I'm certain the dev team wouldn't go to the trouble to re-code the entire thing simply to save HDD space.
I do not and likely will never understand it.If purchasing a separate HD was required,I would be more inclined to agree but that isn't the case.=) It takes little time,improves performance and is cost free....the actual downside is what exactly?! Honestly,don't 'install' it and cease this incessant whining. Honestly,I can't wait to install it.Not long now.......=)
Is this a complaint or are they just pointlessly stating the obvious?
An install for a game with barely any loading? It takes 5 min to install and saves us 40-60 min worth of loading times.
Seriously though anybody who complains about installs is nothing more than a non-PS3 user looking to fuel the fire. FACE YOUR FEAR ACCEPT YOUR INSTALL IT IS WHAT IT IS.
Face my fear ,accept my install!?! In this house of doom,no one gets out alive. I have faced my fear.It was rather Wylde....lol. Bubs up.
Face my install, accept my fear! Good advice either way :)
