PS3 Install Size For AC Revelations Isn’t 3.8GB; It’s More

The PlayStation 3 install size for Assassin’s Creed Revelations was recently unveiled by several outlets with the size cited being 3.8GB. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case as the actual install size is exceeds that of 3.8GB. (Assassin's Creed: Revelations, PS3)

Wasn't expecting it to be that large.

"As seen by the image below via our copy of the game, Assassin’s Creed Revelations PlayStation 3 install size is 4381MB, which is nearly 4.4GB:"

Oooooh wow OMG almost another gig. At least now folks don't have to click on a link to a lame website desperate for hits. An extra 600MB of space required for an install isn't "news".

I'm not surprised I think the Ps3 version has Ac1 on disc and that game had a pretty good sized installed I believe.

I don't get
why you require to do such big installations. I only have a 160 GIG PS3 and it's burning out of space fast
princejb134  +   1471d ago
its cause of the slow loading speeds if the blu ray
remember sony put the blu ray in its early stages on the ps3
but is not a problem bro, just do what i do, erase the games you don't play no more or won't in a long time

Some PS3 games have proven if well optimized for Blu-ray disc loading, it can overcome the slow BD drive. But cross platform games rarely get well optimized for disc loading.

Just save the development time and dump the entire game on the hard drive. It's not Ubisoft's problem if gamer's hard drive is full or have to buy a larger hard drive.

So the real problem is Ubisoft. This is the 4th Assassin's Creed and all of them require large install. Clearly they don't care about optimizing disc loading.

slow loading speed of teh blu ray is not the real problem. It's about getting the assets of the game in time for your engine from memory.
Creed engine need install because of the PS3 architecture ( much better to get info from the hard drive ).

Uncharted 3 manages this with an install but even then it uses the hard drive for caches purposes. Overall it's more flexible for everyone.

As for your 160 gig PS3 , if you use more , you can :
-improve your harddrive
-delete games you don't play often ..

Simple logic show that it's your fault.

like Princejb134 said it's the Blu Ray drive. It runs slower than the DVD drive in the 360, so to compensate they allow you to install chunks of the game on the HDD. This also helps prevent texture popping and things that are normally a problem in the 360 versions of open world games.

thanks abizzel1

these people probably think I'm trying to bash the ps3 when I'm not
ABizzel1  +   1470d ago

You're welcome some people are just ignorant. and no matter how many time you say "IN OPEN WORLD GAMES" where most PS3 games have the Mandatory install they still won't believe it until the console itself jumps up and slaps them with it.
DarkBlood  +   1471d ago
then you know what you got to do good sir and if you wont do that then pick a game install of a game you wont play anymore ish or wont come back too in a long time and just delete that to make room
gamingdroid  +   1471d ago
The installation sizes are rapidly ballooning. I got a 40GB PS3! :(

... however, I got the sexy gunmetal MGS4 LE PS3! xD

Cheap and easy to add more HDD space on PS3. MS on the other hand make you pay dearly. Is it too much to ask for an HDD accessory sale?.

Would you like to donate a larger hard drive? Either you have to delete and reinstall games like a PC or spend extra $$$ for a larger hard drive. And, then if you have locked game saves, either spend more $$$ for PS+ Cloud Storage or full hard drive that can often fails to restore entirely if it detects copy protected data.

"Cheap and easy to add more HDD space on PS3."

I take it you haven't bought a new HDD lately then? Due to the recent flooding in Thailand, HDD prices have skyrocketed, in some cases even doubled.

I don't know why you are getting disagrees, replacement hard drives for the ps3 now cost more tha similar hard drives for the xbox...

@B1663r The flooding has increased prices (albeit temporarily) but still here in the UK a 250GB XBox360 HDD is around £60 and for just £40 more you can get a 1Tb drive (£107 - Samsung HN-M101MB - PS3 Compatible)!


The above is in the extreme and you can get 500GB-750GB HDD much cheaper but just to point out that HDD upgrade on PS3 is still way cheaper than on the XBox360 even now whilst prices are inflated!

< No excuse for not having enough HDD space on the PS3!!

best buy has the cheapest 500gb at around 80usd

At least there is no mandatory install on the X360 version.

CloseSecond  +   1471d ago
Who cares, that's what storage is for. You run out get a bigger HDD or delete older data.

I actually wish they would patch MGS4 to take advantage of bigger HDDs. Stupid how it installs data for the next level after you complete a level.
GamersRulz  +   1471d ago
I agree with you on that, MGS4 is Perfect except for this little install thing.
enkeixpress  +   1471d ago
Good. There should be mandatory or optional install option for all PS3 games released from now on.

I wish there was a mandatory/option install for MW3.

I agree, at the very least they should allow you to install the MP part of games so they load faster....and to keep your disc drive from being used as much.

Fifth year after the launch of PS3 and install size is still a valid topic? Jesus...

Wow. 4.4 whole GB.

How will a PS3 owner ever come up with that? Oh yeah, I forgot... they can install 30-70 such games on the HDD that comes built-in, while the average attach ratio is still less than 10 for the PS3, as well as its competitors.

AC:B was 4 GB as well, no bonus game either (AC1).
nevin1  +   1471d ago

Im sorry but I still find installing games annoying and is another reason why this gen sucks to me.
