242w ago - According to [Register or Login to view links], Final Fantasy XIII is confirmed to have an optional 18.3GB XBox 360 HDD installation for those curious.

To quote: "Just in case you've been planning to get Final Fantasy XIII on the 360, here's some info that will help you with playing the game on the console - the size of each discs' optional install.

The three of them sum up into 18.3GB, as you can see. I'd say the option of installing your games is one of the finest features the 360 offers, cutting load times and reducing disc scratches to a zero, since the DVD drive doesn't spin at all if the game is installed... and now that you know how much space each disc takes up, manage your HDD space accordingly."

247w ago - Today Sega has released a Bayonetta PS3 HDD patch, which remedies the video game's loading times. Surprisingly, the patch was actually made by Sony and not Sega.

The new patch will enable players to install the game directly onto the PS3's hard drive, reducing the game's load times as expected.

To quote from JustPushStart.com (linked above): "By downloading the 135MB patch you will have an ability to install the game's data on the hard drive.

Make sure you have at least 4.5GB of space in the hard drive and it should take around five minutes to install.

Once completed one of the things you will notice are:

• Instead of 2-4 second load times when you picked up an item, it doesn't say LOADING anymore. It picks up the notes that you get right away.
• Screen tearing issue is slightly reduced"
