August 18, 2011 // 9:03 pm - Today Dutch site (linked above) reports that the upcoming PlayStation 3 title Rage will require an 8GB mandatory PS3 HDD installation.

The XBox 360 will also offer an optional HDD install of 21-22GB in size, and the game is scheduled for release to both platforms on October 4 in North America and October 7, 2011 in Europe.

To quote, roughly translated: While our boys on the floors of the gamescom stumble around, we get it all within about RAGE. Tim Willits of Bethesda took the liberty to PSFocus a few details to release about RAGE.

The Internet is already known that there is an optional installation available for the Xbox 360 which is up to 21/22 GB. PlayStation 3 gamers have fortunately not much free space.

With a mandatory installation of 8 GB PlayStation 3 gamers can play the game. Yet a large number of gigabytes on your HDD, but fortunately not 22 GB. We also have picked up some of our loyal Faunus (Roel Wijts).

The controls are also adjustable in RAGE. For example, if you find more comfortable to shoot with R1 instead of R2 which is the default, you can always alter it. So are you a true gamer Call of Duty, you can take the controls more convenient way in this game.

Who cares anyway how long it takes to install.

Go watch some porn or do something useful during the installation.

That's because of the speed of the blu ray drive. In addition I believe that GT5 installed thousands of tiny files which take longer to copy than large ones. It takes say 10 mins to install a full DVD on the 360, so the total install time for all three disks will be more like 30 mins.

After market HDD's are becoming more of a necessity now for PS3's with save data, DLC, Installation data and PSN games - 40gb just won't cut it... and to think the original PS3's came with either a 20gb or a 60gb

Wow, optional 22 Gigabyte, that's ten times more install data than the whole Deus Ex: Human Revolution game. My 60 Gigabyte stock PS3 won't do it and eight Gigabyte assumed install is also hard stuff. Let's check it out if it's that worth.

Yea heh, for people who install aftermarket hard drives it won't be an issue but the older 20/40GB stock owners may be a little upset indeed.
