Split/Second: Velocity to require a huge data install?

Submitted by on Monday, 17 May 20106 Comments

Having to install large amounts of game data to your PS3 hard drive has been a contentious issue ever since the console was released way back in the dark ages of 2007.

Split/Second: Velocity is about to defy belief if a screen shot of the game case is to be believed.

The back of the US case claims that a frankly terrifying 7GB of free space is required, so those people with 40GB hard drives might just want to run away in fear.

Of course, these installs help to reduce load times and make everything run smoothly – however recent blockbusters such as Uncharted 2 and God of War III have needed no such help.

Might as well have distributed it digitally

To confuse matters further though is the website Playfront.  They have posted a screen shot showing the EU version of the game only requiring a 3.7GB install.  Other people have backed this up, which leads us to believe the US case has a typo on it – someone has forgotten to put the ‘3.’ in front of the seven.

Might as well have distri..oh wait we already said that.

What is the general consensus amongst the PS3 Attitude Public regarding having these games installs?  Although 3.7GB is in line with a number of developers – is this still too much?
