PS3 gamers running low on hard drive space may want to do some cleaning up – the required hard drive space for Red Dead Redemption has been revealed.
The asking price is 600 MB of our precious hard drive space. Not too bad considering some games in the past like Fallout 3 and Devil May Cry 4 required a whopping 5 GB to play on the PS3. Still, we’ve been spoiled by more recent games like Uncharted 2, God of War III, and Final Fantasy XIII that required very little to no hard drive space to play and still ran super smoothly. Typically, required installations like this are done for some games and we get better load times etc in return. Methinks it has more to do with the game’s multiplayer component, which may I add looks very promising.
Again, this is required (not an optional install) so those anticipating this game should definitely make sure they have enough HDD space. Not such a big problem for me personally, since I still have around 20 GB left on my PS3’s HDD. I normally don’t mind installations anyway, heck… if it improves things like loading times and results in a smoother online experience, I’m all for it!
As a side note, this is a relatively small price to pay for PS3 owners considering they’ll be getting some tasty exclusive content.
