With all that content its still only 6.6GB? :O

Lol i don't think its a bad thing

That doesn't make it a bad thing. Fallout 3 is 5GB and features literally 100+ hours of gameplay and a massive world.

This is actually convenient for people like me who are going to install it onto their hard drives.

EDIT: Don't think of it as a bad thing, that's all I can say. :)

Sure you wanna know ps3 games sizes? Laugh at that:

LOL ferrari challenge full game 1.7gb. Your uber games like KZ2 12gb, infamous 7.52gb. ONly God of war iii is 42gb which would be including lots of redundent data for streaming the levels.

That might just be for the multiplayer like the site suggests. Each single player level in killzone 2 is 2 GB's.

Multi means multi language, not multiplayer.

Will installing the game lower load times or, bizarrely, increase it?

SuperTiger2747d ago

HDD is faster than a disc drive.

markbob2747d ago

Bunige fixed installing with ODST. The whole game single and multiplayer will run just fine off of the HDD.

Dont know if it will decrease load times. Bungie has sad nothing about that.

The issues with halo 3 was that bungie made it purposely to run directly from the disc. Since MS had not announced "installs" yet when bungie was developing it

CombatEvolving2747d ago

It wasn't bizarre that it increased them. There was a very basic explanation given as to why that happened. Halo 3 was released before the install option and used a special system to decrease load times that conflicted with the install option. Halo: Reach will be optimized for installing.

The main reason why people install to HDD is to reduce stress on the disc reader. MS' warranty applies only to RROD beyond the first year, so a dvd reader failure would leave you without a box.

I was playing the demo at fry's and it's so jaggy and looks worse than MAG but i was playing co-op. I guess, it's the same with what happens with Resistance 2 during split screen.
