Unreal Tournament III can be installed on PS3 Hard Drive

According to a forum post by Epic Games VP Mark Rein, an option will be available on the PS3 version of Unreal Tournament III for installing approximately 3.5 gigs of content on the hard drive:

"Yes there is an install option which places a bunch of the commonly used content on your hard drive to speed up loading and texture streaming times a bit. It does not install everything - you still have to put the disc in the drive to run the game. The install is absolutely not essential. The game runs just fine from the Bluray and load times aren't bad but if you're going to play the game a lot, and you've got an extra 3.5Gb on your hard drive, then you might as well do the install because the few seconds you save here and there will add up over time. If you want to free up space you can delete the installed data at any time."

This.. UGC.. actual release date.. One of the best looking games this generation, next to Uncharted.

Smells like a buy to me.

I'll give you bubbles when you stop repeating sony's slogan.

On the subject, good idea, doing it.

Nice option. If I were to get the game it is certainly an option I would use. I wonder if other games will take this lead? After all, all PS3 users have fairly sizeable hdds.

Maddens Raiders4922d ago

Incognito and WarHawk already have.

Skerj4922d ago

A lot of PS3 games already do, Genji, Resistance, Heavenly Sword, Folklore, Warhawk, and Ratchet are the ones I have that do. Some are completely optional and some are automatic before even playing the game.

Cool feature, but that's alot of room. Even with the 160gb hard drive i have, i don't think i'd install this game. For the sake of waiting a few seconds, i can save 3.5gb. But it's an optional feature. And might i add, this game will be accessing console hard drives about 6 months sooner then the 360 version...oooh, yeow

Your better off installing it cuts down the long long load times.
