With Battlefield 3's depth, scope and breadth being something that's unprecedented in certain aspects, install sizes for the DICE-developed shooter has been a hot topic for months.
My 320gb HD laughs at your 2gb install
My 500gb laughs more! =D
My 1 TB HD laughs harder :P
Some guy who sounds dumb as a rock is currently playing on ps3. http://www.ustream.tv/chann...
^Cool story bro.
My 80GB with a little over 1000MB of free space sheds a tear :`(
@ WarPonyDestroyer Your link shows no video. Try Again
@orange-skittle His video is valid, the kid is at work. Said he'd be back streaming in a few hours... 6pm pac time.
Is their an option to install better txturs like on 360?
the PS3 already has the textures by default, you have to install the so called "high-res textures" on the 360,just to get it to look like the PS3 version. Oh and btw, no HDD and you get what they called a standard def version on the 360
@dantesparda Correct that the mandatory install for the PS3 has the pack within it. The optional install for the Xbox 360 is reported to be similar size. As for the HDD... as long as you have at least the 4GB you can still avail the optional install. I don't know of a single Battlefield fan who doesn't have a HDD. So you should be ok.
Because Legion knows them all!
@Parapraxis Upgrade... you will never have to worry again. Do it big though. I started with an 80gb, stepped up to a 320gb and now I'm at 750gb. It's worth the small investment. I have over 150 downloadable titles and over 120 retail titles with various DLC, music, videos, etc and I'm not even half way full on my HD. On topic: Story won't load for me... does this include the super textures or whatever they're called? Anyway... CAN'T WAIT FOR BATTLEFIELD 3!!! Feel free to friend... guitarded77 across all consoles.
my 160gig cries
My stock 120gb laughs at this.
@Biggest Obviously I don't know them all but simple logic that BF3 is a more hard core game and thus would fall into the category of hard core gamers that have HDD systems. But I do know MANY on the Xbox 360 and all have HDD. Still have not ran into a single player that hasn't got an HDD. Though I am sure they exist they aren't the core gamer nor are there many. Majority of people who bought a model without a hard drive have already upgraded and purchased hard drives separately. The same person that doesn't have a hard drive likely is not a Gold Live member either... so doesn't fall into the typical BF3 gamer.
My 4TB laughs the hardest
My 250GB doesn't know how to laugh, Microsoft doesn't make em like that.
My poor 60gb launch ps3 is crying in agony at having to delete more stuff to make room... Being a college student with a crap paid part time job sucks xD
Check out sales at newegg or the like. You'll find that they can be very cheap, and you won't need to be hastled with this problem again.
I have an obese 80GB PS3 and he feels no pain, only sadness.
You can get a 500gb hard drive for around$50 on amazon.
:( i have a 30 gb fat.... he wants to suicide
Im a full time college student and i could still scratch up $30 to get a 300GB HDD, it aint that hard. i just traded in some game i didnt want anymore and used that money to get a HDD from amazon
upgrade your harddrive, it really is worth the investment.. I actually seen a 1tb 2.5" hard drive for £45 which is around $65 ?.. the only downside to upgrading is you may have to spend a couple of hours when your first get it to re-download any downloaded games.. other than that it's well worth it :D
I totally would all, but i am currently earning only £5 an hour at work (really sucks for 19 year old) and I have pro tools to buy soon :) Might get a cheap and cheeerful 250gb or even just a 120gb :D
Im downloading the Origin PC version now. Its 11.4 GB. I expected the PC version to be a little bigger. Oh well. Cant wait!!!!
Ya, same here. I thought it would've been at the very least 20GB in size!
That fits quite well with information from NVidia LAN "Per multiplayer level - 200 - 250 MB of streamed object meshes - 1.3 - 1.5 GB of streamed object textures" 9*1.5 GB = 13.5 GB And textures can be compressed on DVD to expand during install. I guess the DVD media on both PC and Xbox limits actual size. @caperjim - Could you check actual install size?
@RegorL The actual install size on pc is 11.4 GB. I checked again after it was fully installed.
My 750GB HD laughs at your puny install, MUAHAHAHAHA!!! 8P 8)
Just play it for the PC and you have no worries ;)
Wow, that's not too bad, at least much better than shooters like RAGE.
you can that again! RAGE takes up 7.7 GB altogether and its still got massive pop-in!
