The game itself does NOT require 18 GB - you just need to have free space on the hard drive twice the size of the game to be able to downlaod and install it. It's the same with any other game or demo. It demo lets say is 1.5 GB you'd need to have at least 3 GB of free space to be able to download it.

Ater the game will install you can use remaining 9 GBs for something else. Simple solution - get 500 or at least 320 GB 2.5" (laptop size) hard drive and upgrade drive in your PS3 and you should be fine for a while. If you'll purchase some nice external USB enclosure at the same tiem you can use the original PS3 hard drive as backup for your PS3 or laptop or any other needs

IMHO it's cool, but not exceptional. At least I would not want to sell it before having played the game... I'm not very far though.

btw: In Europe we got the blu-ray version of this title. As far as I know there is no DLC and even the german version is english-only (apart from manual and box of course). So it would be possible to get a EU version from the UK for example if you really want the game and don't like the idea of giving up 10 Gb of HDD space for it.

O.o is this game any good? what's it like, and why are they making it seem like a big deal (other than the fact it takes up 18 gb)?
