    Skyrim's PS3 Installation Size


    When Skyrim comes out on the PS3 this coming Friday, gamers who will pick up the game must save a huge chunk of hard drive space as the game will require a mandatory installation.

    Before anyone can play Skyrim on their PS3, a size of 5.5GB will be required. If you’re one of those people that are still stuck on the small 60GB hard drive, I recommend upgrading it as Skyrim will not the only game this year that will require a huge amount of HDD data.
    This might not seem like a large installation, but compared to the PC and 360's installation, it's quite large. The PC requires about 6GB and a leaked image showed that the 360 required a 3.8GB installation. Just shows how much Bethesda took advantage of the Blu-Ray capacity. With their past attitude towards PS3, I shouldn't have got my hopes up for a small installation size.

    Edit: I have 4.9 GB left on my PS3...

    Actually I still have my 80gig Fat ps3. That I've had for years. But then again I don't store music and movies on my PS3 either. Nor do I just keep game data for games I no longer play. Save Data just goes on a flash drive.

    Honestly I don't see how a 5.5gb mandatory install is screwing the PS3 over. It probably has more to do with how the 360 handles the audio files and textures. Or the compressions of the files and how the two systems are coded. I really don't see what the big deal is. Skyrim is still smaller than my GT5 files. Which is sitting at 11gigs. And I haven't even d/l the latest update yet. Which will probably push it to 12 gigs.

    This is what I thought
    I also delete game data of games I don't play any more, keeps things nice and roomy

    Just looked as well, God of War Ghost of Sparta and Chains of Olympus take up like 16 and a half gig between them and I doubt I will be playing those again now I have the s

    Looks like I still have 81 GB left of 111 GB. I keep deleting game data that I am no longer using, like games that I have finished up the platinum in. Only a few more days! =3

    I got a 500GB drive but only 34 GB free! If your an RPG gamer like me those install are huge and your not going to delete them because of how long it would take to reinstall next time you go play them. Even I need a bigger drive. For the first time ever, anywhere, someone is jealous of the Xbox
