With that in mind, next month Capcom's Resident Evil 5 is set for the official market launch. The fifth part of the series will be appear both on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Today the installation capacity requirement of Resident Evil 5 has become available, courtesy of the image below.

hmm 5gb shouldnt be that big of the deal anymore, be scared when a game needs 10gb of space. i'm pretty sure everyone has upgraded there hd by now anyways also it would take some load off the blu-ray so maybe we see a faster loading time

For this new piece of awsomeness... i think the 5gbs are worth it... i admit that if it were another game i mite have been a bit iffy abt it. However, im generally not against these installs... once they don't take a huge amount of time.

Is there any size limit for the PS3 HDD ?

no size limit for the hdd.

I used to be against the hdd installs but now I install any game that has the option. My nephews ps3 just stopped reading ps3 games. it seems that's one of the biggest problems with the ps3. so now to save the laser, I'm installing any game data that I can. i have a 60gb hdd and that's been good so far but it's time to start thinking of an upgrade.

well, for xbox360, one can now install the game onto HDD, so i guess the ps3 can probably add the same feature.
