Lost Planet PS3 Has a 5GB Install, Too
In news bound to make the crybabies whine once again, another Capcom game for PlayStation 3 is going to start off with a 5GB install. According to dbTechno, the install shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes and will result in “lightning fast load-times.”
Devil May Cry 4 drew plenty of criticism for mandating an install before you could play the game, but ultimately I think those that actually played the game were much less upset than those shouting from the sidelines. I personally don’t think this is a big deal, but if this is going to become a regular feature(?) of Capcom games, early adopters with a 20GB hard drive might find that their HD space is coming at a premium.
One has to wonder, though – why are the installs mandatory and not optional? If someone wants to save their HD space and sit through long load times mid-game, let them.
