Like many third-party games on the PS3, Dead Rising 2 has a required HDD installation, but when compared to previous Capcom PS3 offerings, this one isn't that bad.
Hank has switched on Troll control just encase.
You okay Hank?
Console comes standard with HDD, Developers use this to their advantage, news at 11.
Looks like we won't be making a sandwhich for this one. Hahaha...sorry, couldn't keep that one in.
Damn, i was getting prepared. Oh yeah, midnight launch tonight. I'll be playing this till 3-4am.
Why is there still installation on PS3? Killzone 2, MW2, and Uncharted 2 dont have this so how come a game like this needs it?
Lots n lots of zombies . . . Lots n lots . . . Did I say zombies, ya a sh!t load
It all comes down to the developers familiarity with the systems architecture. If the developer isn't experienced at allocating memory, or utilizing the SPE's, they usually do something like having mandatory installs to make up for their ignorance. It is true that games like KZ2, GOW3, and UC2 dont have installs, the reason is those developers are well versed in the architecture of the PS3. They are accustomed to it.
theres more stuff going on in this game.
2.83GB of HDD space
Im getting this for ps3 because I wanna play with some psn friends. By the way I even install my games on my 360 to get better load times. . . Is 8minutes of your life that important ? Come on guys . . .
I don't get the fuss over HDD installs. Space isn't a problem for me, thanks to a spare laptop drive I had.
Does it even have coop I thought the coop was added via the 360 dlc pack case west.
has coop!! both players play as chuck green. now in case west one chuck the other west
It's definitely better than a 5GB install, but still....If it was optional, cool, but this is more of capcom's developers just not up to grips with ps3 hardware still.
The game itself is not bigger than 6G, and this installation is almost 50% of it. That is ridiculous. They are not only wasting almost a BD, but additionally want to waste my disk space. Come on. The people behind this port (and Capcom itself) dont deserve PS3 owners monies. I'll make sure to buy it, when it reaches $20 second hand.
'cept I ain't buying anything they make. borrow it from a friend or rental if "Capcom" is on the front. I haven't seen one game from Crapcom that justifies an installation... Not a one. They don't make games that are actually demanding on the tech, so what is this half of the full game needing to be installed bull?
I install all my games on my 360. Nothing wrong with that. Makes for a better gaming experience.
