Yesterday we ran a story stating the PS3 version of Split/Second required a mandatory install of 7GB. It would have set a record for largest game data installation the PS3 has ever seen. We were shocked, the public was shocked but now we know the truth.
Gamertell contacted Disney Interactive Studios an asked for an explanation on why Split/Second has such a large install. We received the following comment from Eric Wein, Senior Global Manager of Public Relations from Disney Interactive Studios.
“The install is actually 3.7 GB. The 7GB on the packaging was used as a placeholder prior to the game’s completion and is not accurate.”
So there you have it folks. It’s still an install, but it’s not as catastrophic as it first appeared to be. We can all move on with our lives now.
Split/Second will be available tomorrow (May 18, 2010) for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
