While some titles do manage to load directly from the game’s disc, an increasingly large amount of PS3 games require an install. Coming out in September, Resistance 3 will need an install in order to play, with the HDD space used far outstripping the space demanded by Resistance 2.
Resistance 2 only needed 350MB of the PS3’s HDD, but Resistance 3 will take up 1.5GB. Luckily, the 5-7 minute install won’t be entirely boring as a motion comic that shows the timeline of the Chimera invasion plays for the first few minutes.
If you’ve upgraded your HDD, Resistance‘s install won’t be much of a problem, but if you have yet to change out your 20/40/60GB we’d definitely recommend picking up a new drive as soon as you can as more and more games will use up your drive space.
