Resistance 2: Thanks for Not Using a 5GB HDD Install, 350MB Only
Game installs on the PlayStation 3 have become a huge problem. We've seen hard drives fill to capacity already and there looks to be no end in sight.
I was pleasantly surprised when Resistance 2 nixed that huge 5GB install that most games these days require.
This isn't to say there's no install. The game drops roughly 350MB of data onto your hard drive, which takes about 90 seconds. Not bad at all considering games like NBA 09: The Inside use over 2.5GB of precious hard drive space.
I just wanted to give credit where credit is due. Kudos, Insomniac! Good job stepping in and putting a stop (or at least a pause) the problematic game installs that are plaguing the PS3. Keep up the good work! More PlayStation 3 News...

Definitely is a welcome change... My 80gb HD is filling up pretty fast...

I think the small size of the HDD installs show how much more optimized the PS3 is becoming.
I can see the PS3 version of multi-platform games to be better in quality than other versions of the game on other consoles.
Imagine games on the PS3 in three years. I remember Timesplitters I when I got the PS2 a couple of months after and now I just finished playing God of War II. Wow, just wow.

Well if you don't have any space available on your hdd you can delete some other game files from games that you are not playing at the moment.
