Brutalgamer.com writes:- Sounds fair enough! In our upcoming hands-on feature with Assassin's Creed 2, courtesy of Ezio's best mate Keats, it is revealed that the final version of of the game for the PS3 will have around a 2 GB install.
I won't mind installing this. I can't wait to see the exclusive weapons for the PS3 version.
i hope you have a psp because that the only way you can get the exclusive weapons.
Perhaps he does?
he said "I cant wait to SEE the exclusive weapons" but like suunyd said he could have a psp.

You forgot "Play-Online-for-Free-Sta tion 3"
"Play-Online-for-Free-whi ch noone-playStation 3" So, you're saying NO ONE plays their PS3 online? Wow, just wow. If you're going to troll PS3 articles, at LEAST try next time. That has got to be the most retarded thing I have ever read. By saying that comment, it shows how insecure you are about owning a 360 that you have to bash another console saying something as ridiculous as that. By your logic, I can say "Pay-50 bucks-a-year-to-not-play-onlin e-which-no-one-does-360". Makes PERFECT sense. You're so full of fail.
Why are you naming all your dupe accounts? Seems like a stupid thing to do.Then again, you are a bot..
lol 360fanboys are just one big epic cup of fail.
We inspire you guys (Patchstation 3 and Jason 360) but be more original But i guess you can't lmao http://n4g.com/ps3/NewsCom-... Edit Lmfao im tearing over here We finally made one of the bots malfunction Ravin sing I feel pretty come on http://www.youtube.com/watc...
PS3rdddddddddddddddddddddddSta tion 3rd
great now I have some use for the 320 GB HD
if this means almost no loading time Im ok with it!
Wow omg i have to take 4 minutes out of my life for an install whatever will I do?? Make a Coffee?? Goto the toilet?? The 360 version is superior BLAH BLAH!!! These articles are obviously wrote for one reason.. Bet the PC version install is bigger! I mean if you really wanna pull that rabbit out of the hat 360 fanboys..
If it was the size of DMC4, I wouldnt pick this up. But considering its 2GB, I probably will. Considering the game is gettin solid reviews. I dont wanna miss out a great game for such a minute reason. Though, it would have been cooler if the install was optional
Now I can put more on my 500G HDD that cost $80 from NewEgg.
but sadly only ps3 and pc users actually use it now (when it comes to hdd's)
PC install may be bigger but it will be the superior version.
when ND and GG make better games with no install
That's because we have to install the whole game. At above: They make games specifically for the PS3, which means they can figure out better ways to load off the Blu-Ray drive. For multiplat games, where the PS3 is not the main platform, it would be slow as hell to load from the Blu-ray drive because it has a slower read time.
You would miss out on a really good game just because of a 5 gig install? Wow, can't you be patient? Would you buy U2, MGS4, LBP, or GT5 if they had a 5 gig install?
I never understood why devs need these installs when a game like Killzone 2 did not require it and ran fine with great graphics and steady framerate and really no long long times. I have an 80 GB PS3 and I don't plan on spending money on another HDD so I don't want my HDD to be filled with installs that shouldn't be necessary.
No, not anymore. I've been through that too many times by now. If devs still need a stupid 5gb install, I'll do them a favor and get a pirated PC version for being lazy. Either that rent out the game for my 360. (which cant have installs thank God) I've been patient enough with games like MGS4 (though the install wasnt too bad) and DMC4 ( lamest install i've had yet though the game was equally amazing) Since i expect games to go forward, games like U2, LBP, Demon's Souls, etc etc dont/shouldnt have installs. If they are gonna install something, try nothing to install half of a damn DVD. I didnt get a 500GB HDD to fill it up with installs lol. Its more about ruining the experience when i get home to play RE5. I dont spend too much time at home with college n work, the last thing i want to do is sit in front of the TV for 30 mins waiting for it to install
Meh so what, takes no time at all. Il be getting the ps3 version of this but even if I got it on the 360 I'd be installing to the hard drive before I started. Either way not bothered, time and space I have plenty of both!
yet they can't figure out how to load off of a blu-ray? Come on Ubi! Step your game up!
Its not about being patient it eats away your HDD space, slowly but surely... If you were speaking about downloads then I can understand because not every 1 has a fast internet. AC2 don't compare to those games either, they are leaps and bounds over it. ebuyer.com is pretty good BTW http://www.ebuyer.com/
I just wish they'd make installation of the games like Bathesda does it. All in background while you play.
it'll have a 6.8gb install on my 360 copy, as i install everything nowdays anyway
Depends on developer. Not all multiplats are installed either.
I know that. It's just generally the case.
I am playing this game just now. I have had it for some time now but just didn't have time to play it. I must say, I have to do the same damn sh*t every time! Climb the tower (view point), take a leap of faith, save a citizen who always have the same thing to say like "A minute or more and they would have made off with me" etc. The graphics are nice, the whole cloud effect is nice, the stealth is nice but the gameplay gets boring :(
@Zedux No it does not. All PS3 games have to be installed and that's the problem with the system. It has nothing to do with load times. It's the architecture of the processor. The game loads the same on 360. That's the problem people are having with the PS3. It means if you don't have 2GB left on your HDD, you cannot play or have to delete some content on your HDD. There's a game data utility and save game file, so you use even more space just to save your files unless you overwrite the previous save point. My 40GB has barely any space on it and I have only 20 games. I also have no movies, mp3's, or pictures on there. I had to buy and external TB HDD to hold my files because the PS3 is horrible with space. I am still on my original 20GB HDD for my launch 360. It's almost filled because I downloaded both Episodes of GTA4 and Battlefield:Bad Company and 1943 on my HDD. It's better to buy Multiplatform games on your 360 for 2 reasons. #1-It was developed on that system #2-No storage necessary to play it. Only to save it
I just find it amazing people complain about ps3 installs yet nobody has complained ever about pc installs in the history of pcs. It's nothing but a petty argument by 360 owners who are trying to keep score.
this is why i preordered the game on 360, if reviews say both versions are atleast equal or the ps3 version is better ill be happy to change, but as with most multiplat games just being equal is probably a bit much to hope for right now.
BD drive reads a lot faster than DVD drives and at more stable speed (since they are CLV, not CAV), just check the bit transfer rate, a 4x BD drive beats a 12x DVD... The problem isn't reading, the problem is searching for data. PS3 takes more time searching because its drive is a 2x CLV BD while 360 has a 12x CAV DVD, with a 8x time real spin rate (because all discs are double layered). In the case of PS3 to 360 drivers it's a technical tie. Constant 9MBps for PS3 and 360 vary between 4.36MBps and 10.57MBps (avg around 8MBps). What first party developers do is simple program the data in a order that optimize speed and program data within information to where the next data are in the disc, accelerating the process. Not rocket science but no easy task too. For me, I'm cool with installs. Sony themselves promote the HD as a workaround for the slow spin BD drive in the PS3 so to not compromise load times.
yea looks like i need to upgrade, my OG 80gb aint cuttin for this 2gb install...
Not as bad as the 4 gigs of the original I think it was.
I just started playing the original again and it dont think its anywhere near 4gigs. EDIT: Just checked it and it was around 1300mb
My mistake thanks for correcting.
Yeah a lot of smack is talked about PS3 installs but it certainly helps make the game run /load faster ;)
I'm all for them taking advantage of the PS3's harddrive in every system, so long as they don't go over 5gig( the limit for me), the hard drive is there to be used, not just to store my music and por.... but yeah just don't make it as long as DMC4 install and it should be alright.
As long as you don`t fall out of levels, get stuck in horses..... Etc And the game LOADS!!!! its all good :)
I dont know why but I didn't like it.
The reason why I got into assasin's creed was the scope of the game. I mean com'on. badass assassin running wild around open areas. sandbox games ftw But it didnt execute it well. So it's bound to get some hate. I got sick of the game fairly quickly (2nd run of the game)
I hadn't played the original Assasin's creed, but after seeing e3 i was eatting up all the hype... until i played the original and found it utterly boring and i am no longer interested in this game. The idea is really good, but in my opinion it's no where as good as it could/should be.
In 07, AC was my FIRST ps3 game, loved it at first, but it did seem kind of repetitive....i tried to do a second play through but just could not see myself grasping for another go..
they justify my upgrade to 500Gb HDD :) The loading times should very short, like RE5. Sweet AC 2 looks amazing, but i cant afford it this year :( too many games going on with the PS3, not enough time nor money
normally i don't like mandatory installs(40gb PS3) mainly because it speaks to the laziness of the devs considering killzone 2 and uncharted 2 have no installs but i make an exception for sandbox type games. i understand that it's easier to have no installs for linear games like uncharetd 2 and killzone as they can continuously stream off a disc, for sandbox games that alittle bit harder as there the player can jump around to many different areas at any given moment. plus considering it's only 2 gig install like infamous tells me that actually tried unlike capcom games like DMC4 and RE5 that both need huge installs for no other reason that laziness
Thanks to the slow reading speed of the blu ray drive. Should have stuck with dvd
Go home boy, this is for real gamers.
About half your comment is true.
Uncharted 2 says hello
but are you purposefully being a retard? Go look at the data throughput of BD drives vs DVD 9. There is virtually no difference. The problem here is a dev that can't be bothered optimizing for each console's hardware efficiencies.
Assasins creed is alot more open and requires constant streaming from the disc, unlike uncharted 2. The truth hurts. dvd 12x > bluray 2x read speed.
You do know that blu ray and dvd have different transfer rates meaning 1x don"t you?
I can assure you that even if he gets it on his 360, he'll install it to his hard drive anyway. Btw, still asshurt about that whole "Crysis runs better on PS3, and I posted a video STATING IT, but my comment was it ran better on 360?" incident?
Good luck with your 12x speed on a DVD 9. Anyway...arguing with the undereducated is less than amusing.
Or Rage comes on 3 discs. Or the next GTA game comes on 2. Or when the next game you buy, you have to download the rest of it on XBL because it didn't fit on DVD.
Install is no issue, question is, will the port be just as bad as the previous game? I want NO Bayonetta "outcomes" from this.
Did you owned it, or did you listen to the lies from Game trailers and company?
lol assasin creed 1 PS3 was fine ..in fact it was more than fine ... The only issue was when the firmware 2.00 came .. but a patch quickly came to fix that ...
Are you kidding? Not only did the 360 version looks way better than the PS3, but the PS3 has suffered the "loading" issues that plagued it once in awhile. Not even the famous "patch" solved it. It was a great game, but after seeing it side-by-side with my friends 360, I was disgusted.
Another Multi-Platform superior on the Xbox 360
So it's superior because the 360 version doesn't (as far as we know) require an install? You realize you just indirectly admitted that GT5 is superior to Forza, right?
360 Games never have installs dude And GT5 Probably will be superior, by the looks of it in graphics, and caters to the hardcore race sims more No idea how I just admitted it in my first comment though..
Well by your 360 Muppet logic the PS3 will be the superior game because of the exclusive content you get from the exclusive AC PSP game that the 360 will not even see.
FAILED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!! Thank you
In a completely unrelated story, for the past 15 minutes I filled out a suggestion form at the Coca Cola Company to bring back OK Soda! For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about (because you're too young) here's a link to Wikipedia. OK Soda was my favorite soda of all time. I love the OK Soda manifesto http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... And another link: http://www.myspace.com/okso... Now back to the thread topic... I am looking forward to AC2. I never played the first, but I've heard nothing but good things about the sequel. I used the amazon.com discount code and pre-ordered so you get $10 credit toward your next game purchase (after AC2 ships). Here's a link for those of you who may have missed it!
