July 9, 2008 // 5:12 pm - We now have confirmation available which debunks previous reports of a near-7GB install for Soul Calibur IV.

Courtesy of bi0sparkz from GameTrailers (linked above), the magazine scan below now confirms that the Soul Calibur IV install size is 2.85GB and a 2MB save on PS3.

While those with larger PS3 hard disk drives remain unconcerned, it is definitely comforting news for Soul Calibur IV fans who still own smaller PS3 HDDs.

It is a good game, but personally I like Soul Calibur 3 more. This version is more like an rpg with its custom skills and stats. Try to find a used copy then its worth buying.

Back to topic; has anyone noticed any performance gain besides on character select? I mean I can see a little boost, but I don't think its worth nearly 3 gigs of extra data.

Oh and for the record don't get the special edition for the dlc... worthless!

Only the ps3 version has the option to install portions of the game on the hdd. The xbox already has faster load speeds due to having a significantly faster read speed on its 12x dvd drive in comparison to the 2x bdrom drive (approx 6.5x dvd speed) used in the ps3 which is a reason why so many ps3 games require an install.

Not surprised. I don't know why some games weigh 15Gs, but given that most appear on 360 as well and are identical, their raw size should be somewhat similar and under 7.5GB.

Ok, I have the asia version of the game now and I have tried it both without and with the install. The installed version cuts a good amount of time off waiting during the VS screen showing the characters that will be fighting. I highly recommended people install as its well worth it. I can also say that the game will also upscale to 1080p despite having read somewhere (can't remember) saying that its only 720p and below.

well, i would say that a good idea would be to erase the data for games you don't play anymore or have already beaten, and won't be playing for a while. I've tried a couple of games without the download data [splinter cell to be exact] and although it wasn't infuriatingly slow, it was the sort of thing where after a while, you'd rather just spend the extra time and download it from the start. Although on the other hand i didn't really notice much difference in Ninja Gaiden Sigma [where the download is an option in the start menu, not the frackin' beginning of the game].

So to summarize, it depends, but you should really just consider dumping stuff you'll never need again.

Does anyone know the difference between installing and not installing? I know that its stated you get faster load times, but is it worth it? I've ordered it and have it comming and my ps3 is only 40gig so I just want to know how costly it is to instal whereas I can save the space for other games.

that is actually pretty decent considering most games are around 5gb ...
