Soul Calibur IV on PS3 requires nearly a 7GB HDD Install

326w ago - sh4mike of NeoGAF (linked above) shared the following today:

According to specs from online retailer YesAsia, the PS3 version of Soul Calibur IV will require hard drive space of over 6700MB to install, and save data space of over 2048MB.

This is pretty much sure to annoy all PS3 owners, including 20GB SKU owners - but the big question is.. why does it need so much storage?

On the other hand, those with larger PS3 HDD's won't likely mind at all

Sony: No plans for PS2 Downloadable Titles on PS3

50°
326w ago - In response to a purported sceenshot showing PS2 game downloads for PlayStation 3, Sony says the image "must have been mocked up by an excited consumer."

I'm not sure where the image came from," said Sony's Patrick Seybold, when questioned by GamePro on visible allegations that PS2 games would be coming to the PlayStation Store.

"At this point, we haven't made any announcements, and there are no plans for PS2 downloadable titles on PS3."

Earlier yesterday, an unverified user of the N4G Forums posted the shown photo, claiming to have received the image directly from Sony Europe by way of an insider contact.

According to the anonymous source, Sony will unveil PS2 game downloads while attending E3 next month, this in response to Microsoft's Xbox Originals which debuted on Xbox 360 last year. Despite Sony's denial, said expansion to include PS2 games will happen later this summer, the forum poster said.

Analysis: What a 360 Price Cut Means for Wii and PS3

Such a price tag suggests a $50 price drop for the Xbox 360 model even before the E3 Media and Business Summit, taking place a week later. While Microsoft won't confirm the price drop, gaming sites are abuzz with speculation.

Now, five top industry analysts have told Next-Gen that they believe an Xbox 360 price drop is not only imminent, but likely required if Microsoft intends to fend off competition from rival PS3.

"We believe Sony will be forced to follow suit [with their own price cut], although we suspect they may wait a little bit," said Arvind Bhatia with Stern Agee. "A price cut sometime between July and September is possible [for PS3]."

A price cut would expectedly increase the PS3's installed base, and create an opportunity to sell more high-margin software to offset hardware losses. But still, a reactive PS3 price cut may go against the PlayStation businesses' recently restated "profitability first" mantra. For now, Sony will wait and see how an Xbox 360 price cut will affect PS3 sales and share, says Lazard Capital Markets' Colin Sebastian.

"In the event of decelerating PS3 unit sales trends, we...
