With the release of Lost Planet 2 coming next week, gamers who will be purchasing the PlayStation 3 version will be required to do a mandatory installation.
Don't know if this is a bad news or good news? Well i guess if loading times will be faster it's GOOD NEWS can't wait to get Lost Planet 2.
I thought we were past stuff like this being news... Game installs are newsworthy... You'd think with the site being down as long as it was there would be better stuff to read about... Off to the forums then...
there's always going to be posts for that genre... even if a game that gets terrible reviews has a install.
I have long grown tired of capcom and their mandatory installs for their weak games
No installs and poor performance, or a required install for slightly on par performance? Of course the correct answer is an option install for above par performance, but obviously the team behind LP2 wasn't up to that.
i grow tired of it too. just give me the option. i could see most of the time i would install, but being given the option would feel better.
I'll have to pass on LP2. LB2 However... ah ah ah
its a problem with me just like Scamcom i dont have SSF4 but does that lets you install the game too? This is really pathetic though they been making games for PS3 this long and still installs so yeah every game Scamcom makes is probably a port from 360.
An average game with an iffy Ps3 version with a Ps3 install? Unheard of! lol
if it makes the loading times faster im happy :) underrated game, dont really care for the reviews.
Not surprised. A lot of Capcom games on the PS3 have a mandatory 5GB install: Lost Planet 1, Devil May Cry 4, Resident Evil 5. Capcom should definitely fix this.
Yep, it's been a trend =/
It seems that every game release by Scamcom on the PS3 have a 5GB mandatory install.
Lol at Scamcom. But, I like CrapCom more. :D
So far, SSFIV is the only Capcom PS3 game without a mandatory installation and very good loading times that are apparently faster than the 360 version. It was one hell of an improvement over SFIV. Why cant they do the same with all their other games? -_-
Aside for a possible load time increase, I think it's bad.. especially if you have a LOT of installed games..
On a slightly unrelated note Im so surprised this game flopped. Bad scores almost across the board. However, its further proof that very few Japanese developers have accustomed to new, smarter design. Capcom has been a culprit of old (and dumb) design philosophies and I hope Dead Rising 2 will benefit from being in the hands of a Canadian developer, since that game has a lot of potential.
I wonder what Capcom title won't have this.
Hopefully Dead Rising 2 on the PS3 will not have this..
lol at this stage Mandatory Install for ps3 shouldn't be news
There really shouldnt be news on this, who the hell cares?
i install games that dont mandi it if i have the choice. I mean if your worried about space any game you Dl'd can be redownloaded. but i dont speak fo reveyrone just myself. So if you have problems with this then you do.
There is a problem. If all games have a 5GB mandatory install, it will fill up the space quickly. Not everyone are knowledgeable in changing hard drives.
Lost Planet 2 is a lost cause. Crapcom should really scrap everything they are doing and go back to the drawing board to prepare for next gen.
That's why you get the 360 version instead. Those installs take away so much space from your HDD space and if you don't have enough...you can't play. That's why the PS3 architecture sucks. I enjoy playing my PS3, but that is a feature I cannot stand. I also hate syncronizing trophies every time I load BFBC2 or clicking a friends profile. GTA4 on PS3 was the same way. You couldnt play the game w/o the install. I had to delete files in order to play.
I won't be playing this mediocre game from Crapcom anyways. lol, 6/10
the first Lost Planet was that good of a game its was all hype simply because it was 360 exclusive i guess Capcom fall for fanboy hype train and they gonna pay for it
Wasn't this title to used the new engine 2.0 from Capcom??? Look like 1.5 or less to me... almost 5.0GB install at this time is unacceptable to be honest.
I have sufficient HDD space so it doesn't affect me either way, and yes I'll still play it
I don't mind since my hard drive is 500GB. Why is it that all Capcom PS3 games have mandatory installs? Capcom needs to step their PS3 development skills up. On another note...I am loving the new and improved site...everything is faster, cleaner, and more mobile friendly. Great job N4G!!!!!
if this game didnt have split screen i wouldnt even be buying it
If the 360 hadda have mandatory installs in order to run a game at the same speed as PS3 does without the install, it would be news worthy EVERYTIME it happened, you guys would be going on about how inferior to the PS3 the 360 is, and the power of the cell, and how it only does everything better than 360. LOL!
Oh shut up. Bu bu bu bu teh other fanboys would. Get a grip.
Am I the only one who thinks installs can be a great thing? I wish Killzone 2 had at least an optional install so we didn't get those weird and abrput loading pauses. It looks so gorgeous otherwise, and a simple install would have probably fixed this issue to make it run seamlessly. Instead, the complete absence of an install option was celebrated as a great technical breakthrough or something. In the case of Lost Planet 2, I would need to see if it reduced loading times compared to the other version. If so, what's the problem?
