In this episode, Harry Flopper shows how much the Sony Rangers care about the people who stayed loyal to their PS3s and still have a 40GB from launch. Apparently not much!!

Will he try and spin this?!
Will someone else try and spin this?!
Will I try and spin this?!

Well, no I'm not going to spin this cause I'm one of the people who bought a damn launch 40GB PS3.

Find out next time in the next episode of Mighty Trolling Sony Rangers!!

Joejoefhosho3653d ago

Yeah, I know where to shop.

Works like a charm over a year already


and seriously, who plays all those games at once?

PirateThom3654d ago

Not news.

Like Warhawk and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, the game data gets installed so people with the disc load as quickly as downloaders.

MaximusPrime3654d ago

yea i think this "news" should go in the forum from now on.

IMO installation is actually a good thing.

thor3654d ago

I can see some people with 20Gb and even 40Gb hard drives starting to fill them up around now. And no one wants to uninstall and reinstall games on a _console_.

That said, the game has been built around being a download - the only reason it even has a disk-based release is so they can tempt more people into getting the headset - and it will sell a lot more that way.

Ju3653d ago

A 20GB would be about, what, 2 years old by now ? You'd probably want to think about replacing the HDD. I got a 60 since about 1 3/4years, and that'll be my next investment. 40G should still last for a couple of month.

sonarus3653d ago

This is dumb. Why is the install size greater than the size on the ps store. What the fuk is it installing on my PS3.

Usually i would go for psn download easy but that headset offer is too good to pass up

GiantEnemyCrab3653d ago

Yup, I used to be down on installs but if it helps with performance why not? The 360 will have optional installs and I will be using it for every game(at about 10min an install).

Close_Second3653d ago

Are you for real?

Most installs decompress larger files during the install process.

kewlkat0073653d ago (Edited 3653d ago )

So BD is not enough..these days.

Why o why3653d ago


but its true. If it improves the performance why wouldn't you if you had space.

I'd never thought about what Pirate tom said but it makes total sense now. You install a large amount off the disks so that the load times are equal for the disk base and DD based versions. How did i not see it.

deeznuts3653d ago

Sweet! They're actually using this because ... every PS3 is guaranteed to have a HDD.

JsonHenry3653d ago

Installs, betas, demos, surfing the net, DLC, themes... might as well hook up a keyboard and mouse and call it a non-upgradeable PC!!

sonarus3653d ago

I don't see how that explains GT disc has 5GB install while psn download is 1.8GB

Homicide3653d ago

There is a half a GB update. WTF?

I Only got about 135g left from my 250g HDD


This Game will fit nice and Smug on my Huge HDD

mariusmal3654d ago

i think that installation is good... but that what's make console gaming different from pc gaming. i always loved buying a game and playing it instantly without mandatory install's like the pc.

dont get me wrong i also love pc gaming but it's different.

Ju3653d ago

I am not against the install. The thing on the PC which turns me off, is, that each game does it differently and installs a crap load of other stuff. Run game A and it has a side effect on game B.

On the PS3 nothing else gets installed. Just some data to speed up the resource loading. And that's it. I guess Sony has a (about) 5GB limit, with most games below that threshold.

mariusmal3653d ago

never had your problems.

thetan50003654d ago

Ps3 has a hard drive. That means most games will be install. This is a GOOD THING. Do you see PC games running of a stinking DVD? No.
I love that this is somehow spun as news or negative. It's great, and it's the way modern games are, and it is what MS have also done now too.
(albeit Johnny come lately ;ike they did with HDMI)
Anyway throw this puppy in your ps3, if you like to keep all your games you ever installed on there..
