Earlier this weekend, there was a report that the file size of Split/Second's data install is at 7GB. The report was wrong and the size found on the box art was a typo.
That makes much more sense. I was wondering why this game would require so much more space than all other games. I don't think I'd ever seen an install bigger than 5GB before.
that's true, I'm glad it's only 3GB ^^
Guy 1: Joe, how the fuck did you hit a 7 instead of a 3? Guy 2: My finger slipped, man... Guy 1: FOUR KEYS? Guy 2: Errr, uhh, ehmmmm...
hits hits hits hits hits :)
could have been using the numpad, that's only 2 keys over.
3.7G is reasonable, if it makes the game to load faster I'm ok with that. Not that I'm lacking space but I wouldnt support such a lazy development that requires 7G of my HDD. BTW, I saw some screens of both PS3/Xbox versions, and PS3's is 720p and looks noticeable sharper. Kinda surprised by the difference, didnt expect that.
Playing the game in full HD and having a small install on my large, inexpensive, non-proprietary HDD or sub-HD and no install. Such a difficult choice.... /s
Who cares anyways?? Is anybody actually gonna buy the game?? I played the demo and it was TERRIBLE! It was like the old burnouts but not half as good as them.
Not a big deal... At least it didn't cause the Dow Jones to crash.
Gran Turismo 5's install is 5.2 GB. It's excruciating, trust me.
Typos are funny
Awww, there's a whole lotta people that will be disappointed by this, and then there are a few PS3 owners running low on space who will be as well. ;) Oh well, luckily the PS3 HDD is EASY and CHEAP to upgrade, it would suck if it was expensive. ;) ;)
Rofl, agreed. My PS3 has 500 gb. OWNED. I love not having to worry about installing games. <3
now if only i could do that for my 360 id be happy cause im down to 14 gbs free with a external 16 gb flash drive ......
Just buy a laptop hard drive. Oh wait, you can't! Hahahah loserrrrrrrrrr -points and laughs-
it's fake. I alway say Race around less 1-3gb or less. WTF how r u do said 7gb 0_o?
I'm not buying it, that's just way too much space. Developers should know how to handle the PS3 by know, look at Uncharted 2, and God of War 3. The devs of SS were obviously being lazy.
Wait..what? 3.7GB is too much space? seriously, kids these days. Whether or not you ENJOY the game should be the deciding factor as to whether or not you get it. Not whether or not you need to make a little space for it...but I suppose this is coming from a guy who considers himself a gamer, so take that for what you will.
You cannot ignore the fact that they're also a multiplatform developer working with a multiplatform engine. If you think they can work the same magical tech wizardry as Sony Santa Monica and Naughty Dog under those circumstances, then you're greatly mistaken. And that's even if the 7 GB install was true to begin with, which it is not.
Lazy enough to try and build the game from the ground up on each console? I think not. You can enjoy your "hand"-full of games that require no HDD install then. The rest of us can enjoy a much broader and larger library.
I think devs aren't allowed to take more than 5GB on the PS3's hard drive. (that would explain MGS4's installs). I was surprised when I saw 7GB.
7GB's is almost the entire game.
And..it's not 7GB so a little bit of a relief for those who want to get it I suppose. (You didn't get a disagree from me BTW, most 360 games are 7 1/2 GB with the rest on a disc being DRM so what you said is factually true)
Man, that was a close call! The fanboy battle can be called off now...it was a typo! I wonder if the game will be any good?
I don't think the size of the game is even 7gb.
ill just get it for the 360 simple solution really , keep ps3 for games that shine on it like uc2 and gow 3
Some games aren't even seven gig lol. Don't think i'll get this game though. To many games out this month.
ps3 owners should be buying modnation racers over this game , modnation is amazing even with the load times
maybe they should call it "zero" second because thats the time you get to dodge stuff the demo car was way too slow, i swear i seen daisy pass me out, contact between two cars was weak, like there no weight to the cars,
No way would it have been 7GB.. come on now lol
I rather get ModNation Racers ;) Oh well this is bad News for the PS3 Haters out there!!! ;-D Its only 3.7GB.
Isn't that the full size of a 360 game on a DVD9 excluding the 2GB security feature? In that case wouldn't the game be "disc-free" on the PS3? It's so obvious that it was a "typo" -End statement
