Everyone always talks about data installs for the PlayStation 3 but let's not forget that it can also be a subject of conversation in regards to Sony's portable.
You may remember the large amount of data that had to be installed on the PS3's hard drive if you wanted to play Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots ; heck, you even had to wait as it installed more data in between chapters. Of course, it was worth every last second of that wait time, but nevertheless, people still talked about it. Now, for the PSP's Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker , you will have two install options- according to Just Push Start citing the Kojima Productions blog , the game will give you the option of a "Small" or "Full" install. The small install will be 300MB and the full comes in at 800MB; obviously, the latter option is best for decreased load times and enhanced fluidity. At the very least, though, you'll have to install the 300MB to play the game, which probably won't be a problem for most. The question is, how many big PSP titles in the future will have such an option…? Will this be the norm?
Peace Walker hits Japan tomorrow but we have to wait a few months before the North American release of June 8. When it does arrive, you can either pick it up on standard UMD or purchase it off the PSN.
