According to specs from online retailer YesAsia, the PS3 version of Soul Calibur IV will require hard drive space of over 6700MB to install, and save data space of over 2048MB.

This is pretty much sure to annoy all PS3 owners, including 20GB SKU owners - but the big question is.. why does it need so much storage?

On the other hand, those with larger PS3 HDD's won't likely mind at all

Soul Calibur IV on PS3 requires nearly a 7GB HDD Install

Yeah, and the actual installing size of the data comes around 2.7GB/3.0GB approximated which is not half bad after all.

How about get a new HDD?? 1, its their fault for buying a cheap 20GB and no will have to pay the consequences and 2, will just have have to buy a new HDD or just put up with it. You can't really complain, it's not like you didn't (or even don't) have a choice.

It need too much storage it's sure. And for the reasons of the installation on HDD, problem would come from the speed (too slow) reading of Blu Ray and of its too big storage space, which make that information is slowly transmitted.

Therefore, without installation of data, loads would be very very long. However, an optimization on Blu-ray would allow to go without HDD installation as in Call of Duty 4. But, i think it demands a lot of additional time for the developers.

luckily i replaced my 40GB hdd with a 160GB hdd.. 7GB is a lot of space, hopefully this will be worth it!
