Gamers who enjoyed the White Knight Chronicles: International Edition and thinking of purchasing the sequel today, make sure that you have enough space in your hard drive.
im just waiting for this to arrive home.
Going to pick mine up today after work! Can't wait!
Between this and Dark Souls next month I'll have no social life what so ever for a while.
You had a social life? Wow what's that like?
On topic welcome to life with a ps3.
wow that is pretty big install
Yeah... but it is 2 games in one, isn't it???
PC will also require a VERY big install when BF comes out, BUT since ALL pcs have a hard drive is not a big deal unlike the ps.... oh wait, that's right ALL ps3s have an HDD as well so it really don't matter, unless you're a fanboy who hates the ps3 of course. ;)
Think I'll just erase this demo for Bloodrayne I got off the PSN store! It requires a 961mb install! Why don't we ever have articles about the 12GB PC game that has a 12GB install? And on steam it has a 12GB download too!
Try 20.5GB for Napolean Total War... that's extreme! That is why I never complain about PS3 installs.
Why is the pic of an accretian from RF online?
Since the ps3 can install any 2.5 sata install sizes dont matter like they do on the xbox. Seriously i spent $30 & have a 320gb hdd in my ps3 i really dont care about how big the games are. On my 360 i gotta watch how big the installs are since i wasnt willing to fork out $110 for there official hdd. 4.5gb is nothing i love having all my media on my hdd & still room left for game installs.
omfg,that is massive for a 40gb owner haha
As kma2k said, PS3s can use any 2.5 sata hd. So why would any original 40 gb owner still have the 40 gb hd and not have upgraded another 200 or more gb for less than the cost of a game?
lol big deal i put mine to install went out to start my bbq set everything up an the install was dun like a half hour.............jus switch ur input and watch tv for a lil bit ......lol if this was on dvd it would be worse cuz we get both games on 1 bluray.......for dvd it would probably be 2 dvds per game.....an the online portion is still left as well......................
if it were on 2 disk i would be playing 30 mins into the game while ur watching a install screen. ur comparing waiting around to instantly playing. hmm i wonder which is better...
...........lol i dont sit there an watch the screen read my comment i went to start my bbq lol.......an i watch tv too......even in my xbox i dont play instantly because i install all dvds which is a problem cuz my hd is only like 20gig i gotta delete other games an dvds to install a second....not a prob for my ps3 cuz i jus bought a huge hd off newegg..........and installs are better to cut down load times plus its only like a half hour
To answer your question my friend. If you like the game then it won't matter if your installing it or disc swapping because you'd rather be playing than thinking about which scenario is better. :)
My install took just barely over 7 mins, no where near 30. I was watching a show here on my laptop while it was installing and it was one by the 7:34 mark. Yours taking 30 mins sounds crazy O.o
Imported it and finished the story,fantastic game. Excellent for that jRPG drought we've been having.
4.5gb is nothing thats half of GT5 optional install. anyway i have a 500gig hd so this is not even a drop in the bucket lol. i think writers should save the word "big" for when there's actually an install thats pretty big like say over 10gigs.
Was out couple of months ago in UK I've started from scratch, new battle music is brilliant I just love the game and its characters Its not your usual rpg mind you, needs time investing I hope NA ps3 users enjoy the game
this shit is getting outta hand. i dont care what anybody says im tired of not having the option to install my games! i was gunna buy this game but i may reconsider. 4gb is just a little to much for me to spare. and before yall start with the upgrade my hdd crap i shouldnt have to just to play games! i dont remember the 1st wkc having a large install. optional will always be better than mandatory
its bigger than the first cuz it has BOTH FULL games on 1 bluray PLUS the online portion.........it installs once at the beginning then u can play both games....i just started part 1 again.....installing cuts down loading times as well...........but then again uncharted 2 and ff13 had no installs an there was barely any loading at all
for a 4gb install it damn well better not have loading. my problem is not with the install itself but the fact that its not optional. i was a fan of the 1st game so i may still get this one. but with geow3 dead island and resistance 3 all taking my time im not sure if ill play it.
You're wrong about part 1, it had a large install too, you just forget about it over time. WKCs2 4172mbs WKCs1 2693mbs If you still have that wkcs1 game data (not to be confused with save data) on your system you can make room for part 2 by deleting that.
meow meow meow. I'm surprised we don't see the word "mandatory".
I'm surprise the article didn't mention that WKC2 has WKC1 included in it and is the reason why the game has a big installation requirement.
"As with all PS3 games" Really? I must've missed something.
