How Big is RAGE?

As shocking as it might sound, RAGE will actually take up to 8GB of your PS3 hard drive! id Software revealed in an interview for Eurogamer that Rage will require an 8GB install, an enormous install we haven’t seen since Gran Turismo 5, while the Xbox 360 version is settled for a 3 disc release (which can, in theory, be installed to the HDD… with all of it’s 22 GBs of data).

Sony was great. Kudos to Sony for letting us do that. They don’t allow every game to do that. So definitely, hats off. What we were able to do is install all the textures to the highest level. What is nice about the PS3 platform is that it’s just one platform. Everyone has one Blu-ray drive, one hard drive, it’s all the same. Some of the other systems you have… should I install it on my 360? Should I not install it? So yes, it’s very nice.

    I lol at the face of XBox users!

    j/k 8gb is A LOT! I’m pretty sure I’ll have to remove something from my HDD to install it. The game is looking amazing, I’ve had my copy pre-ordered some time ago.

    I actually don’t have that much free space on my HD. As blasphemous as this may sound, Rage might be a PC purchase for me after this.

    Rage is going to be great, but it releases the same day as Dark Souls.

    This is a no brainer, Dark Souls FTW!

    If the game is as big in the real world as it is in the disc then maybe we’ll see a nice new IP. I wonder what the story is about. Story so far is = WELL ITS F’ING BIG
