Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Requires No PS3 HDD Installation

Sponsored Links
253w ago - Today GamesOnSmash.com (linked above) managed to get their hands on Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for Sony's PlayStation 3 console and have confirmed that the title does not require any PS3 HDD installation.

However, they do report that upon receiving the game users will be prompted to download a 15MB update for it.

To quote: "Well today I got an early copy of Call Of Duty MW2. I put the disc in, and well the bad news is it requires a 15MB update but does no require any install whatsoever. So gamers can pretty much jump in and play on the PS3 version of the game.

Hmm.. makes me wonder if other developers can follow suit and at least make it optional."

Thanks to the OP.

I recently had a nightmare upgrading my HDD as I thought all new games would require installing gamedata. I was unable to successfully backup my original PS3 HDD so gave up after 2 days and decided to start fresh. It was a pain having to reinstall all previous games.

But back to the OP this is great for people who have the Original PS3 and don't wish to upgrade.

one question Playing new games would need the PS3 to update to latest fw right?

so when the CoD6-MW2 comes out.. we'd all be force to update the ps3 and screw it up eventually and pay sony to fix it?

Ok, Ownage time.

72 Mbps (Megabits Per Second) = 9 MByte/s (Megabytes Per Second).

Yawn.. too easy.
LOL at me haha, I didn't see that capital B, but 9 MBps are still a lot my stupid mistake , but before this gets off topic, I definitely agree that HDD install should be optional. Does anyone knows if there's such optional install for for the others systems?

They really should offer the install on the ps3. Not that the ps3 would load slower from bluray than the 360 from dvd but the HDD in the ps3 would provide a definite boost to loading.
