1601mb will be downloading tonight...takes 2 mins, oh joy!
Dont u mean will Be installing. :/
@ALL I meant installing....thanks, sorry for the error
It must be pretty important to some. It's not like it'll change someone's decision to buy a game. People will figure it out when they put the disc in.
That should install pretty fast. Infamous 2 was a gig install and it took less than 1 minute.
there was an install for infamous 2 ? i really don't remember ... when you have a 320 gb PS3 you don't really care about that
That's not technically possible because the PS3's Blu-ray drive reads at a maximum of 9MB/s, but I get your point. A 1.6GB install should only take a few minutes which is not a big deal.
It's on the disc, you don't need to download it.
Not bad compared to rage. I wish every game with installs would have awesome install screen like the MGS 4!
Yep. I enjoyed watching that screen more then I've enjoyed some games this gen.
Some games are actually creative. Heavy Rain for instance teaches you how to make that origami figure while the game installs. And the cool thing is the time you finish is precisely the time the game finishes installing.
I never liked watching people smoke.... Snake´s an exception, he actually looks badass smoking
Ironicaly cigarettes have saved Snakes life more than i can count...
1.6gb is that it? if it would improve the graphics i'd like to install more.
i forgive u because of ur name :)
the trolling is so strong on this site......always commenting on the size of an install as if this just started lol. so retarded.
This is news....
Sure is I've been wanting to know this for sometime now.
because the xbox fanboys try and make game installs seem like a bad thing.....
I install my games onto my xbox too... shock horror!
Smaller than PC, bigger than xbox.. You know what that means... That's right, f*** all.
Damn. They delayed the PC version.
That's nothing compared to RAGE's ridiculous install. And I bet AC has a lot less texture pop-in.
Funny, when I pointed out the texture pop-in in pre release PS3 rage videos PS3 fanboys claimed bull$hit. I just wish more gamers could take a step back and view things objectively.
I didn't. I fully admitted it, it's particularly bad in the Dead City. I still liked Rage though so swings and roundabouts. Anyway, this is an inconsequential install.
Funny thing but I had a lot of them on PC, too. I know, my GPU is old but anyway faster than the chip in PS3.
I wonder if anyone tried Rage with a SSD. It should allow the pop-ins to load faster. That said the solution is to just have plenty extra video ram.
An issue being made over this again :/ people do release playstation allows for you to have 500gb HDDs installed i can see no issues with this for i myself have this on 3 ps3s threw out the house my sis owns one and so does my brother. We also have 360s in the house and there in use aswell if a game requires installed to get better preformance that does not cause no issues either. Why is there always this amount of fuss over this.
I have no clue what you just said but yes, you can upgrade your HDD.
Give him a break. It's amazing that a ninja goat can put together a half coherent statement. With minimal punctuation no less!
1.The guys names is Ninjagoat, which is awesome enough to not be a prick to him. 2. English might not be his 1st language 3. I love goats (personal reasons)
I have a 1TB HDD I bought for like $60 in my PS3.
I have a 120GB HDD i bought for like $0 in my ps3... seriously why do you guys feel the need to tell us how much HDD space is your ps3's? wow, good for you. you bought a hardrive off newegg. do you want a prize?
cool story bro http://www.youtube.com/watc...
My fuss is that you have to go through to much bullshit just to play a game on ps3. I wish Sony made installs optional. I pay $60, pop game in, then i have to wait to update, then game install..what??!!
optional installs....... you realize that your load times would be so painfully slow that you would beg to install it right? disc speed of bluray is at speed one so the laser doesnt burn out fast. when i get a game on xbox i always install my games just so the load time on games like halo 3 arent as atrocious. if you know anything about ps3 games you would know not all games do it, just the ones that are more taxing. 10-20 minutes of install isnt that bad, set it to install, go make a sandwich, it should be done by then, if not, eat your sandwich, it should def be done by then, if you dont like sandwiches then just jump on n4g, troll, flaimbait or w.e it is an n4g'er likes to do
The German Version has only 1568 mb incl. the first Patch
now.... where's the Head2Head. That's what I'm waiting for. It seems all review copies were PS3. I want to know whether that version is smoother or better looking.
its actually not that bad of a size
Yeah it's not that bad. Hopefully it helps the PS3 with load times...
true true indeed cant wait for it almost 6 hours and 30 mins for me till its in my hands woohoo
500 gig HD for 50 bucks so I don't care, it actually feels good filling it up for some reason.
I've just never got around to installing a larger HDD in there, I'm still rocking an 80 gig HDD and deleted a lot of old game data from installs to saves even to PSN games you no longer play and have LOADS of room on there still so that mandatory installs aren't an issue. It's amazing how much data you collect on there over the years and 5 minutes cleaning it out means you've no worries for installs. Every PC needs a bit of housekeeping, PS3 is just another type of computer and needs some love too.
Wow. Game journalism scrapin' the bottom of the barrel. How did this worthless story get over 400'?
I built myself a nice new gaming rig last month so I'll be picking this and any multi plats up on my PC, an investment for multi plats considering the PC version is usually cheaper (and Steam is awesome) and I then still have my PS3 and 360 for the exclusives I want to be playing. With all the games coming out it really is an amazing time to be a gamer, if only I had more free time lol!! As for the mandatory install, 1.6GB isn't bad. I just cleared up a bunch of free space on my PS3 recently, it's truly amazing how much space you can free up just by deleting old game content, particularly for games you know longer play. I think I cleared up at least 10GB of space with the last cull I did so I now have plenty of room on there.
Thats not the actual install. Actually, thats the downloaded catwoman DLC...-_-
I got this free when I bought my GTX 580 so I have to wait till November...sob sob.
Feel sorry for the people with 40 gig consoles they must all be dead by now anyway i guess like mine.
My 40gig is still running nicely. I did put a 320gig hdd in it so no worries about installs.
Im going to get me a 500GB HDD soon. Im running on about 23GB left XD..120GB was a good start tho.
Install size often shows how much the developers care to optimize the loading speed. Even games that have "no install" often caches on the hard drive. Best design is do a small install for data that get loaded most of the time, optimize the disc loading, cache chapter specific data to hard drive since the data is only used for the chapter and load all the cutscenes from the disc. But developers are usually too lazy or too rush to ship the game.
Rage is 8GB!
The only people who would complain about something as trivial as this are those who haven't upgraded to a bigger hard drive before filling it up :| I say...BRING IT!!!
"The mandatory install size of the PlayStation 3 version of Batman: Arkham City has been revealed. Hop inside to see how much space you’ll need to set aside on your PS3′s HDD." They could've just said the size in about 1/10 of the space/time.
what can i say? i played gt5 and forza4, and forza win. because the game is funny!
