RAGE's mandatory install on PS3 is... HUGE

RAGE is full of graphics. So full of graphics, in fact, it can encounter some trouble getting them all off a console game disc fast enough. Nothing major in 360's case, as we already know it will be possible to play the game without installing it to the hard drive, although if you want the best experience, you can optionally install a massive 21/22GB of data to help things along. But according to aninterviewwith Bethesda's Tim Willits, PlayStation 3 will require a mandatory install. And it's pretty big.

How does 8GB sound to you? Sure, it's smaller than the 360 install, but that one's optional. PS3's is mandatory. In order to play RAGE on PS3, you're going to need to free up 8 gigabytes of space on your hard drive. If you've got a 40GB or 60GB PS3, that might be easier said than done.I wouldn't want to have to start deleting games just to play another one, although RAGE is hopefullygoing to be worth the effort. We'll know soon enough.
