Like all other Xbox 360 games, id Software’s sandbox shooter Rage will allow gamers to install it onto their console’s HDD. Unlike other games, however, it’s going to require a huge amount of space.
ShopTo reckons that in total the game could require as much as 22GB as part of its installation. This also suggests that it will be a multi-disc SKU.
“On the 360 we don’t have a partial install option,” id’s John Carmack told a Quakecon audience. “It’s all or nothing, which is kind of unfortunate.
“This means you have to install 21/22GB of stuff which takes a long time but if you’ve got it and you play it on the 360 that’s the way to go.”
The game is due out in the UK on October 7th.
