PS3 gamers running low on hard drive space may want to do some cleaning up – the required hard drive space for Red Dead Redemption has been revealed.
The site is now up. Sorry for the inconvenience
Not bad, not bad at all. 600mb is nothing compared to GTA4 3GB or so.
That's good to hear.
Small size in my point of view. But is good to install. Less loading times, less time reading disc etc.
I love my 500 gb internal hdd, news like this doesn't even faze me anymore.
Indeed. I've got a 300gb in my own PS3. No sweat.
Yeah, it's so nice of Sony to make it extremely painless to upgrade the hard drive. I was more than a little pissed when I first discovered that I'd have to pay an outrageous amount for a 120GB hard drive for my 360 when I could get a 500GB HDD for the same amount for my PS3. Granted, I believe there is a way to modify the casing that the 360 HDDs come in so you can add your own, but I'm not sure they still work after the update that disabled non-licensed media. And even if they do, it's a pain to modify from what I hear.
Not 5 minutes ago I just installed a new 500gb hdd for my ps3. I'm loving it.
I think 320gb is plenty. It's always good to delete junk.
If not 5 minutes ago then when did you install it. 10 minutes? yesterday? last week? I Need To Know! TELL ME GOD DAMN IT! j/k :)
I still have that 60 GB of space and I'm still good.
I have 40GB and I'm about to top myself.
very nice Finally Rockstar love for the PS3! Blood is thicker than water, I guess.
Can you get those in a store or something? I am fine with my 120GB but it is always nice to upgrade, I could put videos or music on it aswell and not just games.
@Legosz Do you mean get the hard drives in a store? If so, then the answer is Yes. All it needs is a 2.5" hard drive. You can get those practically anywhere. On another note, I think it's great that you can upgrade your PS3 hard drive, but I always fill mine up before I think about upgrading. Then, I don't have anywhere to store the backup (all my external HDD drives on my comp are formatted to the wrong file system).
with my 500 i have almost 300 gbs left i have a hard time filling it..
Exclusive Content for PS3 + Very small space for HDD. That's all you need I think.
Yeah, mandatory instals are a non-issue. Funny how the headline tries to make it a big deal. P.S Who cares what version people are getting, stop the fanboy cr*p (aimed at people below).
Then with the free extra content, it's no contest. Ps3 version it is.
Cry all you want, but we PS3 owners dont worry about space because we have plenty of space, and if we run out of local space the PS3 allows us to use other and even cheaper portable memory storage devices that is all ready on the market. We can even upgrade our non propitiatory HDD.
"PS3 gamers running low on hard drive space.." Upgraded my HDD to 320GB a while back for the price of $50. 600MB is nothing.
Yep it's extremely modest considering the type of game it is. I also wonder how much space it takes on the PS3.
lol is that a joke, my fallout3 saves take more space than that(about 10-15mb each got like 100+ saves) I think i best upgrade my 500gb hdd 600mb is alot..............
"PS3 gamers running low on hard drive space may want to do some cleaning up" When I read that I though, oh shaiit game is gonna have a 5+G install. 600M? really? my demos are twice o triple that size.
Im thinking about swapping out my old 60gb HDD but im concerned that my saves wont carry over, or I cannot gain any new trophies working from my previous saves? Can anyone confirm? This worries me as I still have work to do in FFXIII and I dont want to loose progress on a game Ive sank 90+hours into.
Your saves and everything WILL carry over, because you'll do a full system backup before you swap out. Make sure however that you have a separate drive with enough free space on it to do your backup before you begin.
2 games that can't be copied and carried over so far are killzone 2 and dante's inferno. if you own them, platinum those two first before you swap drives. not copying certain files suck.
Thanks for that, il gonna pick up a nice 400GB in the week plus a smaller external for back ups. I do own KZ2 but not too fussed about that save not getting carried over. More worried out my big RPG games. When i scroll down my saves at high speed it takes 10-15seconds to reach the end of the list.. Scary when you consider the speed!!!
big papa is completely WRONG sigh.... i have killzone and i upgraded to a 500 in december and somehow those saves managed to make their way onto my new drive.... oh and bigpappa there is a built in backup and restore utility, and if you use that you will not loose any saves as long as you restore to the same playstation, but if you just stick a flash drive in and try to copy those saves that way... well thats a no go.
Does anyone know if the attachment fans are good enough to sustain the system because it overheats in 10 seconds? My fan isn't operating and I just need enough time to transfer my data from one PS3 to the next, but I don't want to buy one if it won't work! PM me please!
If it's not under warranty, then open it up. I'm not sure what the inside looks like, but if the fan is just on the housing, then opening the case and putting a box fan there should do the trick. If the fan is on a chip, though, that won't work.
uh yeah its a hell of alot more complicated then that....
600mb? Pffft. That's nothing. I've downloaded demos bigger than that. Speaking of, if you're looking to clear up some space, deleting demos is a great way to do it. If you're like me, and you let them build up, it adds up to a good 5-10 GB by time you delete them all. Insane.
Honestly I always choose the optional installs if they are available. Valkyria Chronicles, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Resonance of Fate all have optional. Would be nice if all games had optional installs because then we'd hear less whining :) But yeah just like a lot of other people, I have upgraded my harddrive. Swapped out the 160GB i had for a 320. The 160 makes for a nice small external drive.
