232w ago - We've seen the GT5 unboxing with some Gran Turismo 5 Signature Edition pictures, and today GamersMint.com (linked above) confirms via amar212 at GTPlanet.net that Gran Turismo 5 has an optional 40-minute 6.4GB PS3 HDD installation with the US game being reported as 19.4GB (20,882,698,502 bytes) with the EU version coming in at 13.72GB in size.

To quote: "The initial install size of Gran Turismo 5 on your PS3 HDD is going to be 6.4 GB. He also revealed that it takes about 40 minutes to install.

However, interestingly, he says that the game will continue to install and decompress data throughout the course of your playtime and the actual disk space taken by the game on your PS3 will be a lot more.

Kindly note that this installation is optional and you can play the game without doing this. It only requires 256 MB of your HDD if you decide against doing it but it's highly recommended that you do if you plan on spending days with the game like we do."

I've noticed no loading performance loss even with forced hdd install rips compared to loading from bd.

The only disadvantage is wasted HDD space. But if somebody want to reduce wasted space, then it's possible to delete original files from BD rip after installation. I've did it some time ago, and most games were working after this cleanup


What I was trying to say is HDD Seek + BD Seek is ideal, using all of its available bandwidth. If you have it on a backup manager, and you install it to the HDD from in game, it will be loading the backup manager HDD data as well as the in-game install data, slowing things down significantly.

HDD Seek + HDD Seek is slower, and more strenuous than HDD Seek alone.

one thing that irks me about backup managers is that you must perform certain ps3 data hdd installs in addition to ripping the game to the internal/external hdd

6.4 GB is nothing compared to other backps we have on our HDDs, and I have 500 GB waiting to be used for any game that needs internal installation.
