So this week it was announced that uber-Playstation driving sim Gran Turismo 5, which is finally hitting retail this coming week, will have a mandatory 6.5GB install. The problem with that is it wasn't exactly true. So I guess a lot of folks got upset for nuttin'.
Popular gaming website Eurogamer.com has in fact confirmed the opposite to be true- the install remains, but it's optional. And to improve on the reported 40 minute install time (should you want to do it)- you can elect to do it while actually playing the game. Data packs would be transferred in little bite sized pieces while you engage in driving simulation.
Not so bad after all.
