If you're lovin' inFamous – and really, aren't we all? – you should probably consider purchasing Prototype , which once again gives us the chance to play as a bad-ass modern-day superhero.

But if you buy the PlayStation 3 version, you may run into a small problem. You have to install a portion of the game and some users have encountered a glitch where the system tells you there is "insufficient hard drive space," even when there's plenty of room. The good news is that Activision has already recognized the issue and they plan to release a patch to the PSN "shortly." In the meantime, Team Prototype has provided us with a quick fix-it technique that should allow you to install the promising action title. You just need to change the available space on your hard drive by 700MB; if you don't want to click the link, here are the ways you can go about doing this:

They add that you "may need to try a combination of any of the above suggestions" before Prototype manages to install to your PS3, but hopefully, it won't prove too problematic. We've been hearing some good things about the game thus far – GamePro gave it a 4.5 out of 5 and IGN gave it a 7.5 out of 10 – so we hope the team will get that patch up on the PSN soon.

yay im the 1st. this game looks mediocre. wannabe inFAMOUS??? When i went to preorder inFAMOUS the Gamestop tool told me to get this one too but get it on 360. I said no thanks. I suppose it could be good, but i just dont trust multiplatform games these days. Especially from devs unknown to me. if this install glitch is any idication why.

Hey, at least he had a comment! And so do I.
The game looks badass at the very least. You have to admit that turning your arm into a giant sword-thingy is awesome. I want it to be good, but I don't know yet. My friend is buying it today, so I'll go watch him.

This never would have happened on the PS1/2… I uber pissed at the PS3, it doesnt even read PS1/2 or DVDs now, all its good for now is bashing someone over the head with.

I couldn't tell if you were being sarcastic there or not, but… Maybe the problem would never happen on a PS1/2 because there were no game installs on those systems (with very rare exception). Furthermore, if you got your PS3 at the right time, you WOULD be able to play PS1, PS2, CD, DVD, Data Disks, PS3, and Blu-Ray, all of which make this a very satisfying system to own. Lastly, it seems to me that this kind of problem lies with the software moreso that the hardware. They should have made sure there were no problems like this to begin with. but, either way, there is a fix in the works so all is well.

But hey, if you want to go bash people over the head with your PS3, go ahead. You can always blame it on violent video games later!

Yes, You did understand at all, i know PS1/2 games dont have installs….. I was pointing out the fact that we would get s*** like this on PS1/2 games.

I did get a 60GB PS3, first it stopped playing Blu-rays/PS3 games and now it cant play PS1/2 and DVDs…. and i refuse to pay £150 just to get a replacemtn which cant play PS2 games.

This game has becoming very controversial…on IGN they rate it with 7.5 and xbox owners(and a few ps3 ones) are so want to kill the reviewer.

i tend to trust IGN reviews. they have never steered me wrong. This game just didnt look that appealing before the review. The review has made it even less appealing.

I got prototype yesterday evening. I had the install problem when I got home and quickly called activision. I think it was the first time in history that an automated voice recording helped me fix the problem. All you have to do is delete the initial install file in your game data folder and retry. It's only a setup file of a few KB, not the actual game install (as it will not go that far) I was about to become uber pissed. As far as a wannabe infamous, this game was in development before infamous was so you can throw that argument in the trash. Don't judge something until you give it a try. I tried the infamous demo and did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would. Prototype seems to be right up my alley though. It gives you a taste of alot of your powers before it strips you of them Metroid style. Lemme just say that when you can do a people's elbow to a tank, all things are good. The game is very smooth, the story is very interesting, and it's quite possibly one of the goriest games that I've seen yet. So I don't wanna be hearing any crap, k?

I got the game yesterday and I'm sorry it is not as smooth as you would like others to believe. Don't get me wrong this is a good game but there a a couple of issues I have found with it. One thing is when you are on the ground everything looks great but up top is when everything is less impressive. Just little things like that but you did say this game was in development before Infamous.

aaronisbla

Who cares if its been in development longer than infammous? Doesnt make it a better game. Ask 360 owners if Too Human was the best game they ever played

So far i am enjoying the game but not as much as infamous due to story, graphics and gameplay amongst other things. I thought some of the buildings in infamous can look a little bland but after playing prototype, things in infamous looks even better.

For it to be in development for a longer period of time, id expect it to look better.

Fun game though but not something id normally buy, if you can rent it or wait for the bargain bin, do so and use the extra money towards something else.

I liked the inFamous demo just enough to buy the game but once I started playing the game it was clear the demo was only a very very very small representation of how the full game plays out. I'm really getting into it. Prototype looks fun but more of a rampage/fast action sort of affair whereas inFamous seems like it may be a bit more cerebral (though not having played prototype yet I can't pass final judgement). But if you even remotely liked the inFamous demo I'd say you'll love the full game (though maybe not of course).

I didn't say that being in development longer made it better. I said that it wasn't a wannabe game. Some wannabe games turn out to be pretty good though. Saints Row 2 is a good example.

Yeah, I can't decide if I want to buy Prototype or not. I mean inFamous was an easy choice because it's PS3 exclusive so I know it will be great.

Speaking of technical issues does anyone here use firefox and having an issue getting logged out when you try to view an article? I constantly have to log in and go to a thread with a 60% chance of having to repeat the process and even sometimes when it says I am logged in I will go to post a comment and I get the error that I must be logged in to post. Anyone else having this issue or is it an isolated incident? Sorry to hijack the article.

Computer and Video Games.com 8.1 /10
Eurogamer 7 /10
IGN.com [Australia] 8.5 /10
IGN.com 7.5 /10
GamePro 4.5 /5

I think I would wait until it gets 29.99 like I did with Assassins Creed a good game but not worth 59.99.

But at least the preorder people have the action figure.
