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 2: Errr, uhh, ehmmmm...

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....

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.

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. ;) ;)
