Lost Planet PS3 joins 5GB install trend

The internet went a bit mental whenwe reported thatDevil May Cry 4 on PS3 forced you to install 5GB of data taking over 20 minutes - and Capcom has done it again with Lost Planet on PS3.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, which releases on PS3 on February 29 (Feb 25 in the States), has picked up a mandatory 20-minute installation process before the game can be played, according to reports.

This, as Capcom was quick to tell us after the DMC4 uproar, helps to bring load times between levels down from what would otherwise be inherently slow Blu-ray drive load speeds.

Impatient gamers are going to have to ask themselves: "Is it worth it?"
