Uncharted 2 Will NOT Have a Mandatory Install | PS3Blog.net
For those of you who pre-ordered from Best Buy, apparently on the box, it says the game requires at least 1.7GB. Not to worry, though, as Naughty Dog has confirmed that the game will NOT require a HDD install, so those of us who still have the stock hard drive won’t have to worry about another game taking up precious space.
Naughty Dog even posted on their official Twitter account that there is no mandatory installation. According to Arne Meyer (Naughty Dog’s Senior Marketing Manager on NeoGAF), it’s most likely a printing error on SCEA’s part because the required space numbers match that of InFamous.
